Simon and Stephen will be attending the Surrey event tomorrow and will be accepting payment for entries to both the Northants Open and the AEBBA 4-Pin from those who have entered and are yet to pay. Alternatively, you may use the Northants website or AEBBA site respectively if you would prefer to pay via PayPal.
There are still a few spaces available for the Northants Open so it's not too late to enter - and you should!!
We are absolutely delighted with how popular this event is proving with the Bar Billiards community. It is heartening that, with all the effort that has been put in, and when we have asked for your support, you have given it and then some.
For logistical reasons we are limiting the entry for this event to 64 players only. This is to ensure that event can be completed within a reasonable timeframe - as we are sensitive to some of the long journeys you will making.
This means that there are only two spots left and we really hope we can find two more players to fill them. The entry form will stay available on the Northants Bar Billiards website (see here: northantsbarbilliards.com/northants-open/) for another couple of days to ensure these places are filled. It would be great if you could have a word with friends and teammates when you see them this week and ask them to join in with this event - we would really like to make it a clean 64 entry draw.
Incidentally, the draw will take place live on Facebook on Saturday 5th May.
Thanks again to all those who have entered our Open - it is sure to be a fantastic celebration of the game we all enjoy so much.
I am delighted to say we have found our 64th player and so the entry to this event is now closed. (Phil - if Adam still wishes to enter we can accommodate this as we do have a player that would not mind swapping out if required. Please let me know BEFORE the draw which takes place tomorrow evening 5th May)
It is wonderful that this event will enjoy such support from the Bar Billiards community and we have more than 20% increase in entries. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We are sure you will have a great day and we very much look forward to seeing you there.
In the meantime, the competition draw will be broadcast live via the Northants Bar Billiards Facebook page and will commence at approx. 9:10pm on Saturday 5th May. The full draw will then be available to view on the Northants website which you may access via this link (http://northantsbarbilliards.com/northants-open/). I am sure those who can will then add it to the forum in order to complete tipsters predictions.
Once again, thank you for your support of our event.
