Double Jeopardy Formats - We will be setting up new formats for the Fall Session. We will introduce 8 Ball Double Jeopardy, 9 Ball Double Jeopardy, and redoing the 8 & 9 Ball Double Jeopardy. This will give players a chance of playing every one on their roster and offering two chances at the LTC's in 2015. If your team plays in the County Area and in the Tampa City Area this will give your team a chance to qualify in 2 LTC's. Doubling your chance at the Vegas trip. Working on this now. Call or email me if you are interested.
We now have the pleasure of letting everyone know that the old Bulls Club on Fowler Ave will be opening under new a owner. They plan on having 10 great 9 foot tables and will have a full bar. Every thing is in place and they are redoing the inside of The Club now. They hope to open for our Fall Session. We will keep you informed on the progress of our newest location. UPDATE: With some construction difficulties it looks like the Grand Opening will be delayed to the end of September. I have several teams looking to play there but will start off play at different locations and will be allowed to move their team there when they open.
It looks like we will have our Fall Session Meeting on August 31 with place and time to be announced. We will introduce these new formats and will let you know of the plans to redo our Travel Assist Fund and the Payback Fund now offered. We are also looking into new dates for our LTC's in May, 2015. We are working on improving the league with each session and if you have any ideals you would like to share please let me know.
We service all of Hillsborough County, so have some fun and remember our moto: "Everyone can play, Anyone can win".®
