You do realize that Spain is in Europe and Canada is in North America, right? I don't think the Ohio River is quite the size of the Atlantic Ocean....sheesh. The Horseshoe is no more than 10-15 minutes from Louisville....that's closer than a lot of other suburbs on the KY side, but because it happens to be on the other side of a river, it's like it's on a different continent!! lol

We get it, you don't like it at the Horseshoe. The fact that it is played in a SUBURB of Louisville isn't really the problem for you. It has to be something else. Is it in a state other than KY? YES, but come on, it's not 4 states away or something....it is one BRIDGE away.

One thing not often mentioned about the Horseshoe, there were some occasional lapses in security there. That doesn't seem to be an issue at the Horseshoe. There are also more and better choices of food at the Horseshoe than at the EW (except late night of course -- not much different then).

One thing is for sure. They did not make an effort to improve on the internet connection. The live feeds were very hard to do again !

I agree the food is better than EW but you have to be a millionaire to eat there for nine days, at least at the EW you could walk across the street to get some fast food. The bottom line the Derby is not what it used to be and it won't as long as it's held at the Horseshoe period.

so mardi gras in ohio makes sence? oh or how about the webn fireworks on the missippi?
the point i was making is it two diff places. over stated yes. to me its just not the derby if it and in ky.

the horseshoe is so cut off that you have to trec to get outside food or sleeping places. they feel free to price gouge based on this two.
i also love me some paula dean but that gets old after two days.

the new derby is a shade of what it was. for us to be told no place in ky can hoast the event is a bold faced lie.

i guess i just feel like those people in a city when there pro team leaves for a diff state. for me its like the KY derby being ran in texas.

I'm confused. Are you wishing it was back in the Derby City (Louisville) so that it would match the name? You reference a place somewhere in Kentucky, so it shouldn't need the DCC name there either.

I think first priority is finding a venue within a 20 mile radius of the Diamond factory. Limited options.

what i want is the derby city classic to at least come home to kentucky.
Or change the name and close the book on the derby.
I may not like the horseshoe as a venue but i will say they and diamond are trying to put on a good show. but at that place it is not nore ever will be the DCC. im sure a number of tracks or even the horse park would love to have this event, here and in ky

Hell, move it to Lexington and call it the Bluegrass Open or something like that. I, too, miss the old days of the DCC. Those were the first serious professional pool tournements that I ever went to and they blew my mind.

I think the Derby is what you make of it. I don't go up there for the full 9 days but we were able to eat up there fairly reasonable. Hell, I don't know how often I actually did eat. I really miss the action area of the EW however there are some things that I like about the "shoe". Like the fact that when watching the tournament matches you can go upstairs and watch from above.... If you aren't too cheap to buy the wristband. So I really think that there is nothing about it that is going to make everyone happy. The name thing is a little ridiculous I mean it is a hell of a lot closer to Louisville than any other big city.

your options for food limited ect ect.....the TAR room was some real bunk this year.
blah maybe im just cranky but t seems iv way fonder memorys of DDC's gone by. its lost its magic for the spectator.
No you are exactly right. I know they had no choice in leaving the executive west but they should have stayed in KY . I thought for sure they would have moved it to the Hotel where they held BCA tournaments in Nov. of 2007.It would have taken all of us 1 year to acclimate and the good times and memories would have continued to roll on.I had attended all from the beginning thru the 1st. yr. in the Casino and it was not even a shadow of it's former self.Unfortunately it must be a huge $ maker for Diamonds because I brought up to greg Sullivan abt. moving to a Hotel and he acted dumb founded saying everyone enjoys the casino better. So far I have not met one of the people Greg talked to.I have missed the last 2 yrs.Maybe a petition would help.

First stop should be their detriot property called Motor City! Its mid country so travel is not bad. Plus, strong pool support and possibly Very high turn outs.

Plus, Mars would not have to go very far and could really rally local support. Plus, dippy is close and a ton of others!!!!
