Brass Tap & Billiards in Raleigh NC Goes Qualifier Crazy (beginning August 30th)

Brass Tap & Billiards in Raleigh, North Carolina, has always been a big supporter in the way of events.  This weekend will kick off three qualifier events that they will host in the coming weeks.  

First off, the room will, in collaboration with The Green Room located at 1108 Broad Street, Durham, North Carolina, (919) 286-2359, offer a WPBA qualifier spot this weekend for the Carolina Classic scheduled for September 10th-14th in Durham, North Carolina.

The qualifier spot will be determined in a unique and creative way.  On Saturday, both Brass Tap and The Green Room will have women's tournaments – The Green Room will have a player's meeting at 12:30 p.m. with play beginning shortly thereafter.  If you are not a morning person, Brass Tap will offer a 2:30 pm player's meeting.  Each location will have a $25 entry (no green fees and no added money). The winner's at each respective location, will then move on to a Sunday final round to determine who will take the qualifying spot in one race to eleven, Texas Express rules.  The location for the championship round has not been determined yet, but will be at one of the two venues at 3 p.m. August 31st.

Next up for the Brass Tap will be a qualifier spot for the 2008 Carolina Open to be played September 27th at the venue.  The Carolina Open does not take place until October 6th-12th at Fast Eddies Sports Bar and Grill in Goldsboro, North Carolina, but this is a great chance to throw your name in the hat early.  The qualifier entry is $25 and only first place will be paid – all entries will be applied to the prize fund (based on a 32 player field).  The game is ten-ball, races to five, and double elimination.

Lastly, the room is offering the same opportunity for the 2008 U.S. Open 9-Ball Championships.  The U.S. Open is boasting $100,000 added this year and is scheduled for October 19th-25th at Chesapeake Conference Center in Chesapeake, Virginia.  The qualifier will be held September 28th starting at 1 p.m.  The entry fee is $25 (again, all money goes to the prize fund and only first place will be paid, based on a 32 player field).  The game is nine-ball, races to nine, single elimination.
