2-Day $5000 Added at Hard Times Sac in October

The Pechauer West Coast tour is pleased to announce the date and venue for the 2004-2005 season finale.

Hard Times Billiards in Sacramento, CA will set the stage for the $5000 added 9-ball tournament on the weekend of October 22/23. The timing of this event was coordinated specifically to compliment the BCA National 9-ball event that starts two days after the tour finale concludes.

The Pechauer Tour finale is, like all other Pechauer Tour stops, open to any and all players. New tour members can sign up on site the day the tournament starts. "The Pechauer Tour is excited to have the opportunity to run a stop at the players' favorite poolroom!" commented tour coordinator Steve Lingelbach. "The Markulis family, owners of Hard Times Billiards, have been a dream to work with and have generously agreed to add $5000 to this final stop of the season."

The Hard Times stop will start promptly after the player's auction at 12:30 on Saturday October 22nd. Hard Times Billiards, located at 5536 Garfield Ave, Sacramento, CA will be open 24 hours during the weekend of the tour finale. Tour information can be found on the web at www.azbilliards.com and www.onthewirebilliards.com. General information is available by calling the office of On The Wire newspaper at (503) 674-8300.

If you are unable to make it to the stop in person, you will be able to follow the tournament with live brackets and updates on AZBilliards.com. The 2006 tour year is scheduled to start just a few short weeks after the finale at The Billiard Palcade in November.
