LAS VEGAS HERE WE COME !!

Postby Alan Millhone on Tue Aug 17, 2010 6:53 pm

Hello Everyone:

Gerry Lopez sent me two emails to post for him on the forum about the upcoming 9th. District ( Western States) Tournament in Vegas.

Gerry writes; For the first time ever we've gotten a place to play on the strip. The hotel is called TRAVEL SUITES INN . It's located within 5 seconds of Circus Circus. We are getting a discount price at Travelsuites. All we have to say is "Checker Tourney". The set price is avaliable to friends and family as well. Hotel is air conditioned and has a nice pool. Please make your reservations early. The # to call is : 1-702-735-4222. This year's 9th. District should attract some of the country's strongest players so bring along your thinking caps. If you're not familiar with Circus Circus you're in for a treat. It has astonishing acts by the best performers in the world and what's more amazing is that all these performances are free from 11 AM until midnight. The children will love these shows and for those who want to try rides and other fun activities, the Circus as over 25 different fun rides, slides, water chutes, clowns, bumper cars, roller coaster ,etc. Aint' we got fun !!

Room costs $ 34.47 !!!!!!!!!!! which includes taxes :-)

If you have any questions call Gerry Lopez : 1-951-695-4222

Play will run from Sept. 19,20,21 (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday).

Gerry Lopez reporting by email: Due to trouble finding a place to play because of the high prices the usual hotels wanted for a playing room, we had a smaller turnout then usual for the 9th District tourney. Twelve players were in attendance but only nine entered the tourney. We separated the players into two groups, A & B. In the A group we had Anthony Bishop, Ken Shultz, Eric Strange, Paul Lyons and Francesco La Rocca. The favorite to win was Anthony but Ken Shultz managed to edge him out for first place by one point. Strange was third and Lyons was fourth. In the B group there were four entries Hector Orozco from Tijuana, Mexico, Richard Vanderwerf, Steve Graham and Mel Tungate (a new player from northern California). Hector a 23 year old with promise came in first in the B group followed by Vanderwerf and Steve Graham. The Travelsuites Inn which is right next door to Circus Circus was a friendly place to play. We are thinking of holding the event there next year in the month of October. The players enjoyed the wonderful free shows at the Circus Circus and are looking forward to the next tourney. Gerry Lopez ran the event which he and Paul Stein promoted. Paul found the Travelsuites Inn after much looking around in Las Vegas. Saturday, September 25, 2010 12:14 PM
