Can we get an update on the event at Bogies this October. I haven't seen any postings lately? Are we still on? Who are we sending the check too? I'm ready to book my flight and send in my entry monies.

Ray Hansen AKA Big Truck -- PoolActionTV -- has committed to live streaming this year.

Please pass the word to eligible senior players that you know! Let's get some more older players out of the woodwork to be there for this old time road warrior jamboree!!

Jerry, See you there. Tournament is still on and will probably be full again.

I am entered and also my road partner, Warren.

John Rizzo treats the players like royalty. Fed us twice last tournament.

As far as I am concerned, Bogies is the best action room in Texas. Big Time Billiards could be a close second.

You have our regular action if we can get in some practice.:frus Still looking to win. Do not like to lose or break even. But, most of all, I do like the action.

Rodeway Inn is already booked up. I am staying at Studio 6 about 4 miles away.

The Facebook page for Bogie's East says the Senior One Pocket Tournament starts on Wednesday October 16, 2019. Which is the correct start date? Wednesday or Thursday.

Thanks,
JoeyA

Jerry, Book that flight. See LSJohn's post. Send or call John Rizzo your entry.

Great venue at Bogies. I will be arriving Wed 10/16. Tournament starts
Thurs 10/17.

I am staying at Studio 6, 4 miles away. 4 nights $256, not a bad place either.

Hope to see you there.

Miller,

I am sorry man, but I am going to bail once again on the tournament at Southaven, MS. Both events are equal distances from where I live so distance isn't the issue. I can't attend 2 tournaments back to back and I kind of like the higher entry fee at Bogie's as well. The additional added money at Bogie's ain't bad either.

Please remove me from the roster for the Memphis tournament. (My bad).:sorry

Besides that Bill Rowsey guy wouldn't answer my voicemail. :D

Is there a players list available for the Seniors? I sent my money by snail mail, but it hasn't cleared yet.

I spoke to John Rizzo yesterday and he has a list of paid players, plus an informal list of local players planning to play -- totaling somewhere 20 plus so far, with new still entries coming in. I am sending money tomorrow, heading to Houston since Memphis was cancelled.

I believe he said make check payable to Bogie's Billiards
Sent to:

Bogie's East c/o John Rizzo
3040 FM 1960 E., Suite 101
Houston, TX, 77073

That's what I'm doing :D

Flight has been changed -- it's Houston now -- Southwest certainly makes it easy!

Just NOW cancelled my hotel reservations at Studio 6 in Houston Texas in case someone is trying to stay there.
Good luck everyone, I have slipped off the edge of reality. I am headed to play in a World Championship Pinball machine tournament at the age of almost 70.
YOLO. :heh:heh:heh
