Kelly Fisher is The Pacific Coast Classic defending Champion and says this about returning, “I am excited to be returning the fantastic arena at the Chinook Winds Casino.  It was the site of my second WPBA title last year and holds great memories for me.  Chinook Winds host’s a first class event and I am looking forward to coming back to the great atmosphere and thrill of Oregon.” But Top Ranked players such as Monica Webb, winner of the 2009 San Diego Classic; Jasmin Ouschan, winner of the WPBA 2009 Great Lakes Classic and Ga Young Kim, winner of the WPBA 2009 US Open 9 Ball Championships, will all be gunning to win a second event this season.
