The junior events are very hard to plan for.

We will take sign ups on sight.

The 8-Ball will start on Saturday July 21st. (probably in mid afternoon)
The 9-Ball will start on Monday or Tuesday July 24th. (mid afternoon)

Since there is no entry fee, it is difficult to get the sign ups in advance and we want to encourage as many junior players as possible.

The length of the race will be determined at the venue.
We will have an 8- Ball juniors and a 9-Ball junior event.
We are hoping for at least 8 players - but will have an event with less.

There will be prizes for ALL junior players. The winners will get an entry into the BEF National event for 2013. (The 2012 event is about 2 weeks before this years Tunica event). We are sending around 10 players and Roy Pastor (New England USAPL) is sending another 11 to this year's event.

The 9' table events will be on their own schedule.

The 7' amateur events will be on their own schedule.

There is no reasonable way to coordinate them. So they are going to conflict if a person goes deep in the 9' events.
Especially with the Derby style format.

The 7' tables are aimed at supplying the amateurs an event they can play in. There might be some crossover - but probably not too much.

In the CSI 8-ball, the TOP players are not going to be considered amateurs. We are not sure how we are going to handle the Grand Masters.

We are planing on an open event - a senior (55+) event and a women's event.

Some of this will be resolved on site -

Sorry,
But that is the best we can do right now. We will accept sign-ups on site.

Mark, when will you know who can and cant play. Theres a few from this area that may be borderline. They have to know atleast a week out to make plans. They cant just show up in Tunica hoping they can play and then find out they cant.
I personally hope the amateur is open to everyone except the top notch pros like SVB, Archer, etc. makes for a more challenging tourney.
Thanks

Csi event at TUNICA

Jumping joe,

Need to know who you are talking about.
Not sure what you mean by 'there is a few in this area that might be borderline'.

We will ignore the local heros- the top name (svb etc) will not be allowed.
Grandmaster players will be addressed at site.

Your top local players should not have a problem - unless that are one of the top players I the nation.

Feel free to email me the particular names. But hurry because I am out of town from July 9th until tunica.

Mark,

This is true that the Southern Classic and Amateur tournament schedules will be generated independently. However, as you know the Derby format was changed from unpredictable round and match scheduling to scheduled matches in 2011. The Round 1 Bank Pool matches will be posted at 1:00 PM Friday. Round 1 matches will scheduled at 2:00PM, 3:30PM, 5:00PM, 6:30PM, 8:00PM and 9:30PM and all will be posted at 1:00PM. Round 2 will be drawn and posted at 11:00PM Friday night, and one flight in Round 2 will be played at 11:00PM. The remaining Round 2 matches will start at 10:00 AM Saturday and continue at 1.5 hour intervals throughout Saturday.

I am assuming the CSI amateur events will use the same double elimination and scheduling format used at the BCA national event which gives very early visibility into a player's complete match schedule. The Southern Classic Tournament Desk can reschedule matches and has been very good in the past when they are notified of potential conflicts, which happens at Derby when One Pocket overlaps Bank Pool and Nine Ball, or when players in scheduled matches are attending the HOF dinner, or when other rescheduling needs arise. I think the Southern Classic will be able to manage these overlapping events pretty well if the players keep both tournament desks informed of potential conflicts.

If the CSI amateur events are not pre-scheduled then that's okay too because the CSI tournament desk would then have some rescheduling flexibility as the double elimination bracket progresses.

I'm excited about the new events and plan to play in both venues. I'll assume you are providing free mobile carts to us senior players. See you there!

The first generation of information did list the ctsondemand.com for sign ups.

BUT - since there are different pricings available, we elected to go through a better sign up method.

Please go to the following link and the top two events listed are the Tunica events.

Sorry for the confusion.
