Will this be anything like Bowling For Dollars?

When I was a kid we had a local sportscaster that got canned for to many DWI's and having an affair with the weather girl (She was hot ).

He got to host a show from a local bowling alley and every week some schmuck would win a chance to throw 3 balls down the lane. No strike....no problem, your pin count accumulated and you took home the cash. 3 strikes in a row.....shazamm, you're a hero and walk away with all the cash.

Is this going to be a website with all the local cash tournaments? You could even add a woofing section and a match making section with the site owner (Of course) facilitating the deal.

Why didn't I think of this

I think this is a good idea.

You could break it down to regions.

Northeast, mid atlantic, southeast, mid west, plains states, south central, southwest, mountain states and west coast

I just don't get it! Put your location in the thread title people!!!! Really, what's so hard about that?

Maybe new threads need to go into a Que to be approved? I know it's more work for the moderators but it's a real drag sifting through the threads...

Yes sir.......seems logical.

I think the main thing people have trouble grasping is that people from all over the world are reading here.

If the title has no city & state and no date, I'm moving on to the next announcement.

Big Truck,

I'm trying to announce an upcoming tournament, but I can't attach the PDF file, it's bigger than the 100K limit. Is there some other way that I can get the flyer on the thread? I can't seem to just copy and paste the flyer. Help would be appreciated by anyone if they see it. Thanks,

Kath13

Kath13,

Good Question!

2 choices.

1. re-size your PDF using photoshop or a like product.

2. convert the pdf file to a jpeg and then size it to fit.

If it will help you, e-mail it to me and I will re-size it for you.

Thanks,

Ray

Nice thread Ray

Suggest fliers & threads indicate whether or not it will be live streamed and, if so, provide a site!

Template to announce a tournament - 05-14-2009, 04:50 PM

Just use as a template.

Add the info that is necessary- Delete what isn't.

Template to announce a tournament
Not just for AZ tournament announcements but for all your flier needs.

*Title of Event (name of pool hall)
Sharkey’s (weekly, monthly, semi-annual, annual) tournament
(Also it might be an annual Memorial [insert persons name] event)

*Address and telephone number of event site. Hotel info and telephone number

Food offerings (finger food or full kitchen) Beer and Wine or Liquor?

Personal contact(s) (name and telephone number) Expect Calls, have info (flyer) available.
*Dates Start date End date June 1st and 2nd or Saturday June 1st Mention a ONE Day event.

Player Auction (if there is one, when?)

Players Meeting time

Practice start time for each day of tournament.

Is Streaming available?

Added Money (only if there is added money)
Guaranteed, or based on the number of entries

Limited field size (optional) (maximum number of players, usually 32, 48, 96, 128, 192, 256)

Now would be a good time to make sure you have the BLANK brackets that would work with the different size fields.

*Game (8, 9, 10, 14.1, One Pocket, other)

*Format; single or double elimination, if double, state race on winner and one-loss brackets 9 Ball Double Elimination. Round robin, Qualifier.

*Rules being used; (you should have a copy available) Texas Express, BCA League, World Standard Rule, APA, VNEA, TAP, Pro (men or women’s)

TD ruling is FINAL.

Alternate Break? Lag? Rack your own?

*Entry Fee;
‘Early signup’ fees and ‘day of event’ fees. Usually the ‘early fees’ are cheaper than the ‘day of the event’ fee.

*Start and Stop time for signups (unless you want to sell byes to the late comers) Just make sure everyone knows it is OK not to be on time. You can always signup late.

Green Fees: (Optional) usually noted as part of the entry fee (Green Fee of $xx included in Entry Fee) Entry fee $55 (Green Fees of $10 included)

Payout percentage; (optional but very nice to have included) Normally 25% of the field, but can be done with higher percentages.
For example, if you have a 32 player field the top 8 players will win money. Seventh place is a tie. Two players will get at the very least their entry fee back and usually double their entry fee on a well run tournament.
Example (you might want to show the players what they can win upfront if there is a full field)
Payouts for a 32 player event with a $25 entry fee and $200 added is a total of $1000.
1st place $300, 2nd place $220, 3rd place $140, 4th place, $100
5th tie $70 each, 7th tie $50 each

Separate table(s) for matching up “Challenge table”?

Mini-tournaments?

Spectator Fee if any

If you are referring to the calendar tab under the AZBilliards banner at the top of the page, I believe that is used mainly by the admin to post birthdays and stuff like that. The first time I ever looked at that was just now, because of your post. But yes, you could use it I suppose.

For more exposure you are best off to start a thread in the tournament announcements forum and bump it during the few days leading up to the tournament. And no, it is not a problem to post an announcement of say, a monthly tournament, and then start a new thread each month reminding people of the upcoming event. You can also use these threads to post results and thank-you's after the event.
