Scotch Doubles/Singles Tournament - 7:00pm, sign up starts at 6pm! (2) $200 ADDED!!

Players team up in a blind draw scotch doubles tournament to start on the 9’ tables!  When you lose on the scotch side you ditch your partner and flip into a singles tournament on the 7’ tables.  The final two players on the loser’s side team up to take on the scotch winners.   It's a race to the 8 in every round. $10 entryLimit 64 players! 

 8-Ball Break & Run Derby - 7:00pm, sign up starts at 6pm!  (3) $100 ADDED!!

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.           If you hit an 8-ball break during the season the 1st one is good for double points in the opening round, the 2nd & subsequent ones are good for a do-over.                                                              There are 3 ways to become eligible for this event:

Be in the Top 3 league leaders for 8 ball breaks!!  Be the league leader for 15-0s!  Buy your way in!  $10 entry!
