Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Co-Sponsors Qlympics

Now under new ownership and management, the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center has committed to co-sponsor the first annual Qlympics, November 1-18, 2007 in Louisville, Kentucky.

“We are proud to host and co-sponsor the first annual Qlympics event and anticipate future years of participation,” said the Clarion's Adam McDonald. “This is a truly unique opportunity for us. Pool is now an international sport and it's an honor to contribute to its growth. We look forward to being of service to players, fans, exhibitors, press, and all who attend. We intend to make their stay as comfortable as possible during the ‘round the clock' activity.”

Stay where you play! -- The Clarion's support of Qlympics comes from revenues generated by players staying at the hotel. So, to participate in the added money, you must be a registered guest for the duration of your event.

Please make your reservations at the Clarion. Call (502) 491-4830 and mention “Qlympics.” Sorry, reservations made through 3rd party web sites (like etc. will not entitle you to share in the added money. $20,000 minimum added is guaranteed -- with full fields, the added will increase to $64,000 pushing the pro events prize fund to $176,000.

Qlympics is an OPEN event in a “player friendly” venue with a 24/7 action room and late night food and drink. And, like all events, there will be plenty of warm-up and nightly mini tournaments.
