U.S. Open 9 Ball tournament is close. This year it is in ***ia
Beach, ***ia, at the pavilion. It is the oldest, and most respected
of the tournaments, and is considered a "must win" for pros. Pat and I
will be there, and we hope to meet a lot of you guys (especially the
nut Carl Pearson). More info on our "tournaments" page. Try to attend.

What is the cost of admission?

There are different prices. Usually general admission has ranged from
$7.00 per session to $10.00. Pat and I buy VIP passes which covers the
entire week, and offers great seating. VIP tickest are $140.00 for the
week, and $100.00 for the final weekend. Worth every dime in my
opinion. The photos on my "people in pool" page were taken from my
seat at the open last year to give you some idea.

Not this time, sorry to say.  I'd love to be there.

I'm deep in the birth pangs of a major project, insane time line,
unrealistic requirments, incompatible software, auction house equipment,
a cowboy programmer or two, "Well, it's just programming, nothing
but ones and zeroes, and we know zero isn't worth anything, HaHa"
product management, a customer who wants the world yesterday, and wants
it to run Windows NT on a 1984 PC, ship on one floppy, and, and, and......  

WHADDA YA MEAN, "NUT?"  Your wrinkly ***is TOAST if we ever play!

Exactly what is the date, just in case I can get away?

Me? A pro? Paaaleeze! I am a relatively advance player who reached his
level of competence 20 years ago (Peter Principle). I am one of those
players who, after shooting every night, and all day and night on
weekends for 40 years, has learned a lot about the game. But, you know
what they say: "those who can do, and those who can't teach." I am,
unfortunately, stuck with the latter.

        I will not be able to get to the US Open. I'm working about 80
hours a week refueling one of the reactors at North Anna. I was
hoping to get there this year because it is so close. Oh well,
gotta make a living for a while yet. Maybe I'll get to Atlantic
City in Nov??
        My cue maker (David Hodges, Parrot Cue) will have a booth.
Please stop by and see him and tell him you read about him on
the internet. I'm trying to get him on line. He is a grate guy
and makes an excellent custom cue--no stains-no decals-no
platistic-made to your specs-ONE of a kind!! He will have 25 or
so for sale so take a look, but the point of this is to let him
know that we (the RSBers) are out here.
Thanks,

Hi Frank

I will be there, and will give him your message. I'm lucky. The open is
only 45 minutes from my house.

I'm new to this, so please bear with me.  If you are talking about the
U.
S. open in ***ia Beach, I've been thinking about driving down to see
a few sessions over the weekend because I assume it will be a chance to
watch so serious top flight talent.  Is this a correct assumption? I
also gather from this thread that there will be cue makers and other
dealers there.  Thanks in advance.

That is correct, there will be booths set up like the expo in King of
Prussia. It just won't be as big (or, maybe it will).
