I just *finally* heard about the State Amatuer 9-Ball Tournament that’s happening Feb 11,2,13.  You can get the flyer and entry form here. Details below:

Each year, I think about heading down there to check it out, and each year I’m never able to make it.  This year is the best looking option, but it is also very last minute.  I’ll have to see what I can come up with, but maybe, hopefully, I can check it out for at least one day. Doubt I’ll play any, but it would be nice to see how it goes.
