2006 Glass City Open Dates Announced

Dates for the 2006 Glass City Open have been announced, and Toledo's Clarion Hotel Westgate in northwestern Ohio will again host the event. Balls will break on November 8th and run through the 12th

The 2005 Glass City Open, won by Johnny Archer in a thrilling match-up with Earl Strickland, was host to 88 of the world?s greatest 9-ball players. This event is a must-attend event for top pros and talented amateurs and this year will limit its field to 128 players. Qualifiers for this event will take place in various poolrooms, taverns, and nightclubs throughout the year. Entry into the 2006 event is $300 before November 1 and $350 after. As in last year, there will be an amateur BCA Pool League team 8-ball event playing in the atrium of the hotel from November 10th-12th.

The official event charity is The Children's Miracle Network, which will host our "Beat The Pro" booth where anyone making a $5 donation can play one of the pros. Anyone who beats the pro will receive an autographed t-shirt.

Also, a VIP/Press and Media party will be held in the playing arena on Tuesday, November 7th, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Clarion Hotel Westgate and will mark the official start of the 2006 event.
