Capital Executive Apartment Hotel Canberra: This is 1.5kms away, and a 20 minute walk, yes i checked it in a car. more or less follow the same street to the venue.

Had a great 3rd NSW8ball tryout at the Casino Hotel with 25 players, our thanks go to host Brian and his staff for the use of the tables and the super service and it was just a great day. Only an hour and a half from the Tweed any visitors to Casino would do themselves afavour by poppong in for a super meal in nice relaxing surroundgs.

PS: Watty beat Peter North in the final.

Pool%202nd%20ranker%20 %202009%20051 Same suspects in the final of the 2nd tryout which we had 37 players just different venue. Watty got the cash again. There will be a lot of players having to go to Casino next week to keep their qualifying hopes alive. See you all there 10.00am start.

We have started our 2009 season with 37 players taking part in the first ranking tournament held at Twin Towns and Dolphins.

Hard to tell by the photo who won? We had 37 players at Twin Towns and Dolphins and the day went along with out a hitch. All the usual suspects were there minus Geoffrey (can't read the calender). To put your minds a ease Watty beat Dene.

We have since had the 2nd playoff event at Coolangatta Hotel with 32 runners and by the time I work out how to download and resize the photos we may well have had the 3rd playoff at Casino in April.

No I have put the foot down and will have everything all updated by Monday.

More to follow.
