Default 3-Cushion in Vegas this July

This is a cut 'n paste of a press release. I went in '99 and had a blast. I know we have some 3C fans on this forum.

Las Vegas 3-Cushion International Tournament 2003

(Feb. 23, 2003)

An international tournament like the 1999 and 2001 WorldCup
events in Las Vegas will be held at the Stardust on July 8-13,
2003. The exact format and conditions are still being decided.
The finals will be on Sunday, July 13th.

The Stardust was remodelled in 2000, and is a very nice venue for
the event, located just across the street from the Riviera and
within walking distance (a warm walk) from the Sands Convention
Center, where the Billiard Congress of America will be hosting
their Trade Expo July 10-11-12. The Stardust tournament room is
a few steps from the hotel towers. A web site will be set up
just for room reservations for the tournament.

If you would like more information as plans are finalized, please
send your email address to:

Bob Jewett <jewett@sfbilliards.com> for general info

Dennis Dieckman <cuebuilder@cuemaker.com> to volunteer for
refereeing or scorekeeping

The current, very tentative plan is to limit the qualifying
tournament to 128 players with an entry fee of $150 and a single
elimination format, with 16 qualifiers to join 16 seeded players
in the main tournament.

Wow, it's been 30 years since I have played a competitive game of 3 cushion. Do you think they have a spot for those of us who are a wee bit out of practice? [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Sure, if being a bit out of practice means you're averaging 1.4 instead of 1.7. [img]/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] I know there is no spot for me! [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
