USPPA Sponsorship Update

The USPPA is happy to welcome Pete Tonkin of Pete Tonkin Custom Cues as the 1st Cue Sponsor for the USPPA Pro Am Event in June 2004. Pete, located in Willow Creek, California is one of the new emerging cue makers currently on the scene.

Pete has agreed to forge a Three Thousand Dollar Custom Cue for the winner of the June Pro-Am. The cue will be made to spec for the winner, and will be ready 3 months from the time of the event.

Negotiations are also been finalized with Harvey Rutledge and Sequoia Billiard Supply to Table Sponsor for the December 2004 Pro-Am. A completely restored Gold Crown 1, 4 x 8 Retail Value $5000 will be awarded to the Winner of the December 2004 Pro Am.

Further discussions with Simonis continue, and preferential pricing is now in place for regional tournament operators. Contact Tony Annigoni for ordering information.

Simonis, a long term supporter of the Reno Open and The Pro Am is looking at providing a bonus structure for our events that would be part of the overall USPPA Bonus Picture.

Tony Annigoni, Managing Partner of The USPPA, noted in a recent press release, “The famous engineer Wallace A. Grant once told me “ You never learn until you measure”. When the USPPA System is employed as a rating tool as well as a handicap, players gain insight to their performance. When coupled with the Accu- Stats Rating System and the Total Offense Practice System players have a complete development program by which they can accurately measure improvement.”
