Just checked out the regristration and there is still plenty of room left. There r a # of hotels that they r using this year instead of just one. To all those out there that have never been, I suggest that you do everything possible to make it this year. They probably will have near 800+ players this year. It will blow your mind!

So who all is going to make it this year?

I'm staying at the Baymont Inn this year! Where is everyone else staying? Can't wait to get down to BG for some practice here soon. One of my favorite tournaments of the year.

03-02-2009, 09:33 PM
The Final Four is again on this weekend! Sammy we can all get together again like we did last year in your room or watch it or mine. If the CARDS go to the Final Four then I won't be in BG, I'll be in Detroit!

Sign ups this year is going slow, only 285 so far. Usually by now there is 500+ already signed up and counting but I guess a # of factors might be the problem. Hope that things pickup! :|

03-12-2009, 12:34 AM
Probably because it's a 3 day event this year.

03-12-2009, 08:12 PM
I like the 3 day idea! I always hated that the player's that made the final 9 had to play in the dark and we always left BG around 9 pm toward home and that sucked. It is the only way to solve the problem and to get players on there way home in a decent time.

I like the three day format. Especially since Bowling Green is so close.

03-14-2009, 06:55 AM
