I was just wondering if anyone here was attending the sml entertainment 9-ball open Championship in Calgary. I'm travelling with my good friend Danny Hewitt. I'll be there from tuesday to friday. I always enjoy meeting new people.

Of course he is. He's won the last 3 pro events on the pechauer tour, he's playing kind of good these days.

I don't travel much anymore. But you're welcome to visit me in Montreal!
Actually I think one of my dealer will be selling some of my cues in Vegas, but I'm not sure during which event though. Where are you from?

When in Calgary it would be good to check out Mikkelsen Cues as well if ya dont already know about them. His shop is pretty close to the Oval the tournament is at, really close to one of the sponser motels as well. Those cues are something special, pretty much any Calgary player knows him if you ask. He may be playing in the event but if not a test drive of his cues is highly reccomended as you will be impressed.

I have only heard of him but have not yet encounter any of his cues. I'll try to meet up with him or something like that. Thanks for the info.

DJ McGinley Ontario says he's going out to Calgary. Thierry, I attended the Border Battle last year in Montreal, and the Molson Cup, I saw that they had the Border Battle in Toronto at TSN studios, but I have heard anything about the Molson Cup? Have you, do they have a website? The Canadian Women's Pool Tour has begun in case any ladies are interested, www.cwpt.ca will hold some qualifiers.

I don't think there is a molson cup this year, Last year it was broadcast on RDS, the french version of TSN. This year the only tour we have is the Pechauer Tour and I'm not sure when will be held the final championship, but I'm pretty sure it won't be televised.
I guess there must be a couple of players from Toronto going to Calgary.
I'm looking foward to this event, it's my first time on the other side of Canada. How's DJ doing?

There is the Canadian 10K Tour handicapped 9-ball and the Straight up 9-ball Showdown tour, Jeff White beat DJ in the last showdown event in Oshawa. Joss Tour is coming around this way to Niagara Falls on the 30th. Adam Monture defeated DJ MGinley in Niagara Falls Color of Money at the 10K event. I've heard of a Quebec Ontario Tour, does that still exist? Good luck in networking at Calgary, check out the mountainscapes while you're there.

... check out the mountainscapes while you're there.

Without a doubt, if this is your first time out west do try to get into the mountains. Banff is a little over an hours drive from Calgary, you can go there for an evening if you have one free.

For those not attending, it looks like they are planning on posting the brackets. http://www.smlentertainment.com/9-ball/9ball.htm

That Tour doesn't exist anymore. Actually by looking at how the pro tour in Quebec is doing, I don't it's gonna last very long either.
I will definitely try to visit more than the pool arena for sure! Thanks for the tip.
