I'm going back to vegas again in August! The weekend before last my eight ball team won the trip(my girlfriend is on the team with me). Last weekend my masters team won the trip.....

I'm pretty excited about this. I'm going back to vegas and the whole thing is payed for by the APA and I'll have alot left over after flight and hotel to have an awesome trip.

Congratulations and "good luck" to you and the girlfriend.

I hope you finish in FIFTH place, right behind my four teams from the Kansas City area.

Yep my eight ball team(Kings-N-Queens) won the trip my masters team(Spot This!) won also....

I'm excited about the masters more so because for one its alot better format and 2 One of our other strong players was out of town so I didn't think we'd win but our other players stepped up myself included and played awesome. I came out of the gate in the finals and won 7-2, so if we won the next match 7-5 or better we didn't have to play the 3rd match and we did. My buddy was down 5-2 and came back and won 5 in a row to close it out for us.:thumbup:

Well that didn't take long. Can't have anyone saying anything good involving APA without someone jumping in to pee in the pool. :mad:

Congrats on both of your wins, poolhustla61508! And good luck in Vegas. :thumbup:

I hope to go someday myself.

For some reason all I can see in my head is the end of an SNL skit with a bunch of the actors dressed up in sleeveless Ts, mullets and beer all over the place with thumbs up going "Thanks APA!!!"

The teams that are going in our area got about $400 per person. It always seems like they are paying for the whole thing but you have to take into account the money that you put in per week over a years time (weekly fee's, quater's, drink's, food etc..) and subtract it from what the travel fund is. I remember playing and not getting enough in the end to even pay for the plane ticket let alone any of the hotel costs in Vegas, thank go for the two for one deals. We stayed at the Stardust the first couple times until they demo'd it. I quit playing a long time ago because of all the nonsense and petty bs in the league. I talked to teams that got their entire trip payed for because the bar they played out of picked up the remaining costs. Congrats to you though.:thumbup:

After winning these two trips, I'm probably a little up on the apa money wise. I won a grand for each tournament! APA handicaping system can suck sometimes but at least in my area if you can win the trip you get compenstated well enough to cover your trip to vegas.

Congrats. I don't play pool much lately, but got on an APA team as an excuse to play. Our team won and will be going to Vegas :) - looking forward to it.

Noticed you're from Greensboro. I went to school there and lived there for about four years.

Went to UNCG. Was there 93-98. Played at Baker's, Breakers, and Cue and Spirits mainly. Baker's was a nice room, but they closed down in like 97. Shooter's wasn't opened yet. Greensboro had such a cool pool scene. There were decent tournaments almost every night of the week. Lot's of action at Baker's. Don't know how it is now.

Good luck to you in Vegas.

No Vegas for me, I have to drive 30 minutes accross town to play in the Missouri 8 ball team tournament which pays $7000 for 1st, 3 times a year.

Just had to play in one session to qualify as well.:cool::cool::cool::cool:

I have read your posts over and over singing the praises of the missouri 8 ball crap. No one else really cares that you play in that tiny mess. The only thing I get from all of your posts is that you are so jealous, lol. loser

I never had the chance to play at Bakers but I've heard of it before. Breakers is still a decent spot to play not my favorite but it's a nice place. Cue-N-Spirits is now Tailgators and I don't like it at all, it's more of a hang out spot than a pool room, just not my type of place.
Now Gate City, Shooters, and Jakes are probably the best places to shoot pool in my opinion.

Jakes opened about the time I left. Cue-N-Spirits had the only snooker table in Greensboro - is it still there? Back then it was a nice spot. There was also Tate St. Billards near UNCG. Not the best place, but decent tables and the closest pool room to where I lived.

Next time I have a day off I may go back and check out some of the pool rooms there.

I don't post here much, but if there is a Vegas meet up let me know.

No snooker table there anymore. It is now called Tailgators and is more of a hang out than a pool room(which sucks) Tate street is also closed, I'm not sure why they closed I know there not open anymore though.

I'm sure we'll post all the details on here if there is a get together in vegas closer to tourney time.:thumbup:
