Seeing that the first deadline to get into the BCAPL Nationals has passed yesterday I thought I'd pop in and see who is signed up for the Men's Open Singles event.

Here is the Map showing the amount of participants that have paid their entries to the Men's Open 8-Ball.

Not surprising to see California, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, and Oregon as the most represented!

It's pretty cool to see all the different areas that are represented for the BCAPL.

The BCAPL must be huge in Wisconsin.

I don't see any numbers next to Kansas and Nebraska? They are closer to Vegas but nobody coming, or at least not in the Open?

Bar Box 8-ball is HUGE in Wisconsin. There are many players all over the state and lots of different events. Diamond tables in many different bars as well.

I think some states really are in need of some good BCA League Operators!

I'm chuckling about that.... one person going within a 5 hour drive of me.

You know what else I found interesting Chris, is that Arizona makes up about 9% of all the Teams in the Mixed Open Event so far.

21 teams of the 245 total teams at this point.

(We do have many other people to sign-up yet as snail mail and the looming final deadline approach)

I decided to throw the Mixed Open Teams division into the locator as well. There are only 245 teams signed up so far.

I'll wait until all the entries are done being calculated to redo the mappings so we can see a full scale of the players coming to the National Event.

From the initial numbers there are definitely many areas that either do not have BCAPL leagues or do not have good enough league systems to generate an interest in what I deem the greatest pool tournament in the world.

Very nice maps!

This shows no teams from North Dakota. In fact we have four signed up at this point.

If they didn't signup before the deadline and didn't show on the playbca.com website then they are not in the data.

This was just the first pass, but as the BCA updates with more entries I'll update the graphs.

Seeing that the Open 9-ball Event has reached it's limit for entrant's I thought I'd drop the players into a map to see where everyone it coming from for this tournament.

Pretty cool Jerry

Keep in mind that there are 100's and 100's that are still being put into the system. The numbers will be much higher. Give it a week.

Yep, I'm aware that the Snail-Mail Process and Manual keying every transaction will take some time yet. That's why I only updated the Open 9-ball as that is full (Although I only have 235 names and 256 is the limit correct?)

Once numbers are all good I'll generate a full mapping by each of the tournaments.

What would be SOOOOOOO much easier is if you could have your programmers dump the entries into an excel file and I could generate one for all the events fairly easy. Let me know and I can generate the pages and give you all the links to share!

Is that 15 in the Bahamas? If so, it's nearly twice the number from MO/KS, and we actually have a reason to play pool here in MO (winter), LOL.

Thank you sir!

I'll be waiting until next week and I'll try and make a graph that covers each of the areas and also I'm working to see if I can map ALL of them by Division into one giant map.

Stay Tuned!

Ok folks! This is my last MAPPING of this Event.

I put together a few different maps that you can drill into and put them out on my website for all to view!

Interactive Maps (http://www.mypoolscene.com/BreakingNews/tabid/146/EntryId/108/Where-is-everyone-coming-from-for-BCAPL-Nationals.aspx)

You can zoom in and out to see exact details and click on the individual markers to see the details for any area. You will see on the top, links to different maps depending on divisions.

Enjoy!

I'm really surprised that there are so many areas that have little to no players coming to this event.

Do they not have BCA Leagues? Do they not care?

I'd be really interested in seeing if they are APA country or something else.
