I just heard from John Rizzo and James Christopher, they want to ride up with me to Chicago and play in the 2nd Annual One Pocket.Org Member tournament... We would like to post our entry fees and get on the list of participants as soon as the information about where to send the entry fees is provided.. I believe Matt and Lizz have volunteered to ramrod this event, so if they see this post, perhaps they will provide all of us with that information..
We are at 3 and counting...:) Oh, and also Matt, are you planning on limiting the field to the first 32 paid entries or are you going unlimited entries this year because Chris's Billiards has plenty of tables to accommodate a larger field?

I think we are just waiting for them to finalize which weekend dates it will happen on. I think Steve is coordinating that with Ghost and as soon as we know when, then members can start RSVPing with entry fees. I cant remember if I posted this somewhere or just "thought" it. Would it be strictly a first come first serve based on paid entry fees? I think that's probably the fairest way to do it imo.

Also I think Steve said in some thread that we would use the same format (32 players) but you do bring up a good point with a larger pool room so who knows. :)

What weekends do the Cubs play in June? June 2-11
16, 17, 18 open for OP play
23, 24, 25 open for OP play
30, 1, 2 July

I suggest the weekend of 16-18 and that will give us a chance to see basaballa too.

Lizz and I are in for sure on any weekend in June or July. I will start collecting entry fees when everything is decided. I need to talk to Steve about the 32 player limit but it seemed to work out well last year. If there is room for more, I am fine with that as well.

Steve and I have talked about the 32 player limit, and there's some pertinent info re. that, based on the poolroom itself, that I will share soon.

Thanks Matt, and in case Liz doesn't read the forum, please thank her for us... You guys are doing a big service for all of us, hope it doesn't drive you crazy from now until then... It's gonna be a bit of a load, but I know you're up to the mark...:)
