Just to let you know the Suffolk Bar Billiards Association intend to carry out the draw for this years EA open on the evening of Monday 29th February, but please give us a couple of day to get the draw on line. The draw will take place at the Bay Horse in Sudbury at around 8pm and anyone is welcome to attend.
The number of entries hits 50 and I am assured forms are on the way from Nigel, Chelle and present hold Mal. There should also be another 8 to come from four pinners that I know of so we are almost there, I have also had a message a couple of days ago from another 3 pin player, saying they want to to enter, to which I have replied to, but as yet ive heard nothing back, plus there are three more four pin players who have said they will enter if needed but are happy to sit out if others want to enter, so basically we should have our 64 players.
So please if anyone else wants to enter send me a PM and get your entry form in quick. Closing date is last post (midday) on 29th of this month.
Looking forward to seeing you all next month for a fun day of eating, drinking and some bar billiards aswell.
Form has been sent off Dave for me, Mal and Chelle, so should hopefully be with you soon.

See you all next month and dont forget the "piss up" at the bay Friday night where we may even be able to fit in a few games on the narrow table.
And also far more importantly don't forget we are raising money on the day for DIPG, a childrens cancer that at present has a 100% mortality rate so any donations of raffle prizes will be gratefully received and course hard cash is also more than welcome
Well that's stuffed it, unfortunately three players have been forced to pull out so that puts us back to 53 entries so far. Another four from the four pinners will hopefully come in either today or tomorrow, so please put your thinking caps on and see if you can think of anyone we can get to join us.
I think there will be a few 3 pinners practicing the 30-20 break both ways rather than the 50-50 break over the coming weeks and wish all participants a fun weekend
The trouble is Gandalf I think youve hit the nail on the head there, some three pinners will be practicing but there is no point in us four pinners even bothering as our tables are completely different as im sure you remember and the Northants and England select players who've visited the bay will be able to confirm.
