Billiard Congress of America Sends Top American Players to 2013 World Games


The Billiard Congress of America is honored to announce that Monica Webb, Jeanette Lee, Johnny Archer, and Brandon Shuff have accepted invitations to represent the United States of America as they compete at the 2013 World Games in Cali, Columbia this summer.  
In an effort to increase pro-player travel stipends for this prestigious event, the BCA has reduced the rate of the official billiard rules mobile application from $2.99 to $.99.  The new price is in effect immediately and will only be discounted for a limited time.  50 percent of all proceeds from the sale of the official billiard rules mobile application will go to assisting the American players' travel expenses.
In a collaborative effort to increase the travel stipend the Billiard Congress of America is also seeking members of the billiard industry to donate to the travel fund for the Americans competing at the 2013 World Games in Cali, Columbia.   The Billiard Congress of America has requested that each industry sponsor donate a minimum of $200, with 100 percent of their donation going to the travel stipends for the 2013 World Games in Cali, Columbia. 
"The Billiard Congress of America is reducing the cost of the official billiard rules app and is reaching out to the industry hoping we can come together and collectively send America's best pool players to bring home the Gold from this year's World Games," said Billiard Congress of America Chairman Mike Serra. "The BCA would like to thank the American Poolplayers Association, Championship Cloth, Iwan Simonis, Tweeten Fibre, CueSports International and CueStix International for already expressing interest and support for the industry wide fund raising campaign."
The Billiard Congress of America's official mobile rules application is available for both the iPhone and Android platforms and contains the World-Standardized Rules of Pocket Billiards (8-Ball, 9-Ball, 10-Ball, 14.1 Continuous Pool, Black Ball, and more).  The official billiard rules app is designed for players and enthusiasts who want instant access to the World-Standardized Rules, regulations and table specifications. The app also allows users the opportunity to email the Billiard Congress of America directly from the application with a rules question.  This mobile application also gives players a new way to seek answers from certified BCA and World-Standardized referees.
