Mark Griffin Speaks Out on Replacement of Pro Event in Vegas - 01-30-2008, 10:06 PM

We have been busy - and think we have a GREAT event coming in. We have verbal committments but nothing on paper. The producers are negotiating with the union electricians and camera people. Unions in Vegas are very tough.

We should know something in a couple of weeks and we will be telling everyone. It looks goiod and we will be VERY DISAPPONTED if it does not take place.

It will be an international invitational event with all the bells and whistles. With several bonus matches after the main event. If we can pull it all off, it will be awesome.

So-don't panic. We will keep eveyone posted.

I just felt this needed it's own thread so I stole this quote from another thread.

Not that Mark needs my endorsement, but I have spoken to him on the phone & in person several times & one thing you come away with is that he is a straight shooter. And I am not talking about his pool ability. If he says he is working on something and it is big and he will be disappointed at this point if it doesn't happen - then I am excited.

I can assume that the bonus matches will involve his main man - SVB.

Mark - Thanks for taking the time to brief all of us. Now please take the time to get a haircut.

Hair does not make the man, so does his clothes or the size of his ... bank account, what else, lol. But have you seen him lately? I think he did win a match or two in Derby

watchez...You are absolutely correct about Mark Griffin! Great guy for pool. This is exciting news. I'll be in Vegas for certain, whether it happens or not, but I sure hope it does! On the other hand, it is UNLIKELY that I'll travel to Charlotte for the BCA trade show and THEIR tournament!

Everything you do is awesome too. If only you could remember what it was the next day.

I'm not totally in the loop about what's going on, but was the Enjoypool.com event that takes place during the BCA league tournament in Vegas, in May, moved?


-1000 Rep campaign completed. Thanks everyone

The enjoypool.com tournament is put on by the BCA, not the BCAPL (Mark Griffin). The BCA changed the name of the event, and are holding their tournament in Charlotte, NC, in conjunction with the BCA trade show in June.
Mark is trying to put together an independent pro event, to coincide with the BCAPL national tournament in May.

Any new updates on this event? I would think they'd have to have something put together soon for the Pros to make their reservations!
