Galveston Trip Report in pictures. - 09-17-2009, 04:09 AM

I got into Galveston today and took some pictures. I am keeping a journal of sorts on my blog if you want to hear all the gory details and random observations. In this thread I am just going to post some pictures and captions from each day. So here we go.

Feature table pit. Very nice set up for spectators. Horrible lighting set up. I am impressed with the bleacher set up. They went all out.



Pro arena side. 40 9 footers. The screen at the end shows all the scores for ongoing matches. Each table has a little electronic scoring set up. Cool idea.



More of the bleachers that I am absolutely fascinated by. The reason why is because I have an idea what something like this costs.



Amateur side and vendors. Meuller came out and set up their full display. Scott Murphy's booth is on the left. Dude has some nice lumber. The floor plan is goofy IMO with dead ends and no thru flow but it is a first effort. Vendor morale is tepid. Amateurs pay the bills and they are in short supply.



Ran into my man Stevie Moore and he showed me his new set of cues from Steve Lomax. I just got a cue from Steve myself and I am in love with the thing.



Playing cue on the left, break cue on the right. The wood in both is just nuts.





Stevie being Stevie he started clowning around and I got these shots. LOL.





I am going to try and post pics here and update my blog each day. You can check out my mindless ramblings here http://theactionreport.blogspot.com/

About time! - 09-17-2009, 06:50 AM

Thanks Justin.... It's been very strange that there have been very limited reports/updates coming out of that place and no pictures up until now. I noticed they have some pictures now on the website, but opening up a few of them, they almost were the same size as the thumbnail.

Get a picture of Artie B. and Billy I. together. I need some headshots for some future Photoshop Fun Projects

Thanks again, us people that can't get to these tournaments, really appreciate anyone that gives us updates and pics!

Thanks so much for the pictures! My husband is there all week for the team event, so I've been wondering what the place looked like. I must admit, it was way more than I expected from the first year of an event. Looks like they got a lot of things right the first time, especially the bleachers situation.

Does Blue Moon sponspor Stevie Moore?

Yes. I asked him about that and he said he just picked them up. Said they were based out of Texas so I don't know if it a distributor or the actual brewery or what. Whatever it is, it is great news. They couldn't have picked a better guy.

Great pics JCIN. I was wondering what the venue looked like, I heard it was a real nice joint.

Shayla...Do you know how many teams actually registered? Snce JCIN mentioned that amateurs were in "short supply", I suspect the team count is pretty low too (likely having to do with the definition of pro vs. amateur).

In the 8 ball amateur team event the last I heard was 30ish. They also reduced the $50,000 first place to $9,000.

if you read JCIN's blog he said the amateur event prize fund is getting cut from 50 thou to 9,000! That's a massive drop! WTF! I would be pissed if I was playing in the event.
