I'm hoping for and expecting a great turnout for the first event and with the help of the owners of Bogies and Big Tyme Billiards on board, and the increased advertising they have promised, plus the added $$$, this event looks to be well on its way. The Calcutta will be held just prior to opening ceremonies and should draw some interesting $$$, so come early and stay late.

Someone has mentioned streaming part of this event, perhaps the semis and the final? That would be great for future events, especially if we can knock Dr. Bill out early so he can join DD or Varner in the booth!!!

13 and counting. 3 Mas and it's on!
I may be crazy, but my prediction is that Bogies will have to move in more tables for next year's 2nd Annual 4S to make room for 32-48.

"They" The same people who tell you if it's going to rain.

I have no interest in playing a tourney. My style of play isn't suitable and my stamina is suspect.

I'll be around for as long as I can stand it. I lasted 1&1/2 hours in Galveston.
Watching Slyver and Cory was torture (10 mins) Watching Henderson and Artie was slow and painful. (2 games)
It was nice seeing people I hadn't seen for a while, Charlie Brown, Jack Taylor, luckily Ronnie Allen didn't recognize me.(saved that money)
Rod.
P.S. I told Jeff and John Rizzo I'd play if the field was short.

Yeah, I know. Endurance is an issue for lots of us. My legs sometimes feel like I'm draggin' aroud a couple of telephone poles, but I'm good for a few hous a day.

I got on the losers' side early a few months ago and had to play three more matches that day. By the end of the third I wanted to get to my room as bad as I wanted to win.

(But Hacker still hasn't taken up my pole vault challenge... I'll take a chance on that one.)

Default Artie

Anybody contact Artie? He would be a welcome addition to this event.

I know he is close with Billy I and others on here. It would be a blast to have him there.

I've heard much good about this man, I've never met him, but i would certainly like to someday. Seems like this tournament would be a good fit for him, I hope someone invites him and he decides to come.

Not sure but I think this would be the first tournament he ever played. Tournaments are a totally different pressure than gambling. Usually larger audiences of sweaters and a finite number of games. In gambling matches you can presumably play another barrel if you have it. Not so in tournament play. I wonder if Arty could do this well without prior experience.

Even if someone did not play in the tournament, it will be a great time. I plan on playing, but will also be looking for a little action too.

Too early for the serious barking, but I am going to fire a few barrels at as many old timers as I can.
