I will in 10 years from now when I reach the age limit.

That being said they get several hundred over 65 players at the Super Billiards Expo if I remember correctly.

I LOVE BIG TABLE POOL.

You want BIG attendance there- 3 things you MUST do! Offer very good prize money 1-6, valid proof of age must be valid US Drivers License or Passport, Eliminate from the tournament the same 4-6 guys at that age who have been winning in these things for the last 15 years since the 0ver 50 tournaments at Valley Forge. Otherwise, why bother to go- just to line their pockets again - there are several 65 year olds+ that are basically pros for that age but still allowed to continually compete and win amateur senior events- I mean constantly the same few names - otherwise they need to play each other in round 1.

Will it be open to those of us taking social security at 62?

Seriously, though, there are many over 65 who still play jam up. I think you'd do best to have it in Florida, and you probably want to play either 14.1 or one pocket.

I think it's a cool idea.

Not 1 Pocket.

They already do that with the Senior and Super Senior events.

Bogies in Houston

To the OP : contact jrhendy, he may be able to give you some pointers.

Pat Fleming, who is about 70, still competes at quite a high level.

Don't leave out guys like Varner and Hopkins. They're in the conversation. Ray Martin is over 80 but still runs 100+ at straight pool.

Not sure whether 14.1 specialist Danny Barouty is 65 yet. Ditto for one-time 300 ball runner Jose Garcia.
