U.S. Bar Table Championships Becomes a Grand Affair in 2012

Heading into its 19th year the U.S. Bar Table Championships (USBTC), produced by CueSports International (CSI), will soon have a new yet familiar home. The USBTC will still be held in Reno, NV, however the growing and popular weeklong event will be moving to the stunning Grand Sierra Resort and Casino starting February 12-19, 2012. The USBTC was last held at the Grand Sierra in 1996. CSI has enjoyed the last 15 years at its former downtown location, but has physically outgrown the available space.

The venue change allows CSI the opportunity to offer even more to players, vendors and sponsors. CSI will expand from the 8000 square feet at its former USBTC location to a usable 40,000 square feet at the Grand Sierra allowing for unlimited growth. The Grand Sierra Hotel and Casino is as its name implies, grand. It has over 2000 guest rooms and suites. Additionally is boasts an extensive array of restaurants, amenities and entertainment options in addition to its large casino.

For your dining options there are 4 fine and 7 casual restaurants as well as 7 bars and lounges including the Xtreme Sports Bar and Lounge which has 40 HD Screens and a 12' x 8' mega view screen. The list of amenities offers something for almost everyone. Need to relax, visit the Grand Sierra Spa and Health Club. Are you an adrenaline junkie? Then speed over to the Grand Sierra Go-Kart Race Tracks. There you can climb into a half scale NASCAR replica race and choose to test yourself on the 400 foot oval or 900 foot road course. There is also an 18 hole mini golf course, an indoor virtual golf course, 50 lane bowling alley, 6,000 square foot laser tag, full size movie state of the art theatre, driving range and an 180 foot Sky Coaster.

The Grand Sierra offers top rated entertainment in its Grand Theater and Summit Pavilion include such acts as Ke$sha, Elvis Costello and the Gypsy Kings to name a few. The room rates for USBTC at the Grand Sierra however, are still a great bargain. While players will enjoy the extensive tournament space and long list of amenities and entertainment, the CSI room block will still be highly reasonable at $39 weekdays and $49 on Friday and Saturday.
