Players & Fans,
Congratulations to Stop # 15 event winners at Raxx, Jeremy Sossei ($1,000 main event), Mike Donnelly ($300 second chance)
Stop # 16, our final regular season event of the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour, will take place on June 1 & 2 at Snookers Billiards Sports Bar & Grill in Providence RI. This will once again be our third event at Snookers this season and we all owe owners Regina & Steve Goulding many thanks for their continued generous support. With this $2,000 added they have again added a total of $10,000 to our events this season. Thanks again from all of us! All that remains of the current season is our finale, The $25,000 Added, Turning Stone Classic XXX 9-Ball Open, August 22-25, 2019. Make sure to come see us at Turning Stone for this world class event with free spectator admission as always!
Snookers, in case you already didn't know, is one of the premier rooms in the United States and TWICE named the #1 room in the country by Billiards Digest Magazine! Snookers comes complete with 15 Gold Crowns covered in 860 Simonis (The Cloth Of Champions), is a world class sports bar, and has some of the best food in RI which is evident by the usual large crowds. So why not come to Snookers to play or watch, have a great meal and show your support to those who most generously keep supporting us. You might even win a custom engraved Joss Cue valued at $1,500 in Snookers cue raffle. The cue drawing will take place immediately before the final match on Sunday and, as always, you do not have to be present to win!! This gorgeous cue can be viewed here: https://josscues.com/joss-tour-2018-19-cue/
This event at Snookers will consist of a $1500 added Saturday and Sunday Main Event (entry Fee $120 for pro level or $70 for non pro level) and a $500 added consolation event on Sunday ($20 Entry Fee) for those non pro players eliminated from the main event on Saturday.
For those of you coming to play, please arrive on Saturday June 1, BEFORE 11:30 AM, and in proper dress please. Yes, jeans and sneakers are permitted in our billiard parlor events. But please, no T-shirts, tanks, shorts or sweats. Complete tour info can be found on our site www.joss9balltour.com
Previously I sent all of you the following motel info: Hampton Inn, 2 George St, Pawtucket RI, 02860, 401-723-6700$199+tax, includes breakfast and parking (mention Snookers Joss tournament) which is only good until May 17! Here is more that I just received from Snookers: the Providence Marriott Downtown which is the hotel that is across the street from at 1 Orms Street, Providence, RI 02904 has also agreed to honor a rate of $199/night for tournament players if they wish to stay there; however they cannot get the rate by calling the front desk. They must call Joanna Arrighie, Director of Sales & Marketing, directly at (401) 553-0485. Rooms are extremely limited, so they should call this week.
I am currently scheduling events for our 2019 - 2020 (Our 23rd!) season. So if you know of, or own a billiard parlor here in the Northeast that may like to hold one of our events, Please contact me NOW at 518-356-7163. Potential sponsors who would to be a part of our tour are also urged to do the same. I will be finalizing the schedule soon so it is important to contact me now.
Once again I ask all of you to please frequent your local billiard parlors and utilize the services of our most generous sponsors who are the backbone of our sport. Thank You & I hope to see all of you Snookers.
