To win the Wild Card Tournament and become the 32nd team in the State Championships you must go undefeated in a single-elimination team tournament that starts at 7pm on Friday.  It's still 3 on 3 but it's a race to 3 wins!  Whichever team wins 3 games advances!  Final 2 teams play a full 9-game match for the 32nd spot in the tournament!

Players team up in a blind draw scotch doubles tournament to start!  When you lose on the scotch side you ditch your partner and flip into a double elimination singles tournament.  The final two players on the winners side team up to take on the scotch winners.  The losers flip onto page two of the bracket for another round with those final two players having a shot at first!  It's a race to the 8 in every round. 

No Limit on players! 

Sign up at 6pm, First round starts at 7:30pm on Friday, August 25th! $10 entry!

 

 

8-Ball Break & Run Derby Friday, August 25th @ 7:00pm

3rd Place - Dave Webb - $1 off his weekly dues!
1st Place - Ben Sutherland - $3 off his weekly dues!
2nd Place - Jimmie Shay Jr - $2 off his weekly dues!

Players compete by breaking & running out the table!  Every player racks their own.  You get one freebie shot on the break meaning you don't have to make one on the break to continue shooting.  However, if you scratch your turn is over with 0. An 8-ball break counts as 20 points.  After that every ball you make counts as a point.  It doesn't matter what you shoot at - be it solids or stripes - as long as the 8-ball is the last ball.  Once you successfully make the 8 you'll re-rack the balls and break.  You MUST make a ball on this break to continue shooting.  Once you miss a shot your turn is over.  

8-Ball Break Bonus: If you hit (2) 8-ball breaks and NOT scratch in the current season you get double points in the opening round!  Your 3rd & subsequent 8-ball breaks are good for a free do-over.  Every player gets a free do-over in the opening round only. 

Points add up from round to round.  The bottom third of the field is eliminated after the 1st round, the bottom half after the 2nd round.  After round 3 only top 3 Advance.  Points start fresh at 0 in Round 4, the final round.

Robert Berry scored 117 points in the opening round!

Ben Sutherland sets record with 59 points in the 2nd round!

Ben Sutherland sets record with 54 points in the 3rd round!  

High score - Ben Sutherland - 130 points - Spring 2017

The top three players each will receive a credit towards their next season’s dues. 1st Place receives 55% of the pot+$3 off their weekly dues, 2nd receives 35% of the pot and $2 off their dues and 3rd Place gets 10% and a $1 off their weekly dues!
