I'll probably be there once or twice to visit with some people. The Cup is a great show. Nothing else like it in pool.

I've been a few times and had to make a decision earlier this year.

And, with the last minute changes, points for bar box events, no Michaela... I decided to go sit in the sun in Mexico and watch it from my iPad.

I was lucky enough to go two years ago and will return this year. Like Justin said there is really nothing else like it. I have contacted many of the members who made the trip in 2013 and they will not be going this year:(.

I am working on a new batch of mini cues to show off at the event and look forward to meeting new folks from AZB.

Major bummer that Michaela won't make it. I would encourage anyone that's on the fence to give it a try.

Have fun in Mexico Lou!

Here is a pic of some of the crew two years ago.

I'd fly out to it if I could get some decent flights out of Jax, With everything having to connect, they are far and few between, especially under $500. It was so much easier when I was flying out of Chicago.

If I do make it out there I think the first thing I will do is head back over to Aria for some soft shell Sampan chili crabs: http://www.aria.com/sites/default/files/9999_Aria_FB_Lemongrass_Dinner%20Menu.pdf

Damn good.

I think I might need to hang out with you two. When I was there last I had the Egg Mcmuffin from the McDonalds across the street from the Riviera. It was ok:embarrassed2:

I'll be there and look forward to catching up with old friends and making a few new ones. If we get crushed 11-5 again I'll need a shoulder to cry on, but I don't think that's going to happen.

I am also thinking about a three-way with Selma Hayek and Hayden Panettiere, but don't think it will happen either.

I hope you can make it. I'll do what I can to get Darin to the event. Oh I know he'll say he's scheduled to work. He just doesn't realize that this is the very reason God created sick days. :)

Chris, it is during the week and no one here needs to work more then me....but don't let work stop you from being part of the most unique match on the planet, work will be there when you get back.

Last time the M-cup was in Vegas I was there, for myself the event was magical.
Living in a remote area and rarely getting to see big events or meet others that are into the game I was in Heaven.

I owe my first class experience to a fellow AZBer who took the time to introduce me to EVERYONE who is anyone that had made to the cup. I had also met quite a few other AZBers who had contributed to a thread just like this one.

I was able to meet,
Bob Jewett
Jeanette Lee
Darren Appleton
Mika Immonen
Max Eberle
Buddy Hall
Johnny Archer
Alison Fischer
George Fels
Lou Figueroa
Fat Albert
SJM (Stu)
Jerry Forsyth
Karen Corr
Pat Fleming
Ken Shuman
Michaela Tabb
PINKLADY
KoolKat9Lives
Jay Helfert
and a host of others I cannot remember right now.

I was able to eat breakfast with a few of team USA and party with team Europe.

I am not sure about anyone else here but the chance to rub elbows with folks that are into the game and the industry don't come around much so I will not miss this event for work.

I have a very low tolerance for ignorance. I understand it is not their fault but when they don't listen it becomes frustrating. Some people just don't appriciate learning.

Well here we are about a week from the show. Anymore Takers?

Two years ago PINKLADY organized for the AZers to meet in the lobby at a certain time on the morning of day one. This worked ok and we met up after the games were over each day and played pool at one of the pool rooms.

I will now take a nap and check back later to see if anyone has any better ideas.:cool:

Here is a list of places with tables in the area.

Good timez looked good and is somewhat close.
