Stephen,

I have no idea, but its clear the tournament is going ahead, so I personally don't care how many people enter. Besides, the closing time for entries isn't until noon tomorrow, so whats the point in knowing how many entered early.

Hi Gareth, i seem to have annoyed you with my question? i don't know why that is, point is, knowing numbers can determine if its worth a 2 hour drive for someone only to find lack of players mean no tourney taking place, which has happened in the past, then a waste of a day for all. Only 8 miles for me this time so doesn't really concern me. I know it says tourney will take place no matter how many enter but we'd all like a full field of players surely? See you Saturday.

Cheers

Stephen

Stephen,

You didn't annoy me with the question, but to be honest the tone of the thread could be a bit more upbeat, IMHO. I view the 3 tournaments coming up as a positive development which I think we all need to get behind and support. Hopefully it'll spring board the tour into great things next year.

I understand that tournaments have been cancelled in the past and I know what you mean about people travelling to events. Players in the Greater Dublin Area are among the most travelled on the tour. If all the players on the tour had the same attitude, it's my opinion that less events in the past would have been cancelled.

I'm really looking forward to the event on Saturday. I hope as many people turn up as possible, even if it's their first time playing 14.1. If anyone is in any doubt, put your name down and turn up.

Straight Pool rocks!

Cheers,

Gareth.

P.s. I just hope I don't draw you in the first round, or then it will have been a wasted journeysmiling smiley

Could we please have entries on the forum tomorrow night, i dont see why this could be a problem. Regardless of the turnout a full player list published on the forum would be a great help to me so I will then know if i will make the trip down to belfast.

If this cannot be done a text or email to myself and I can post it tomorrow night myself.

thanks

So let me get this straight (excuse the pun). You would have no problem putting your name down and then not turning up? (here's me thinking thinking the tour was moving forward smiling smiley )

Field size is largely irrelevant in my book. You'll end up playing the same amount of pool (races can be longer or it can be played round robin).

If its money yer after, sorry you picked the wrong sport. Take up golf instead the finger smiley

Whats with all the smart answers gareth???? I simply asked a simple enough task to do, lets be honest about it.

I probably have played more irish events than anyone on the tour so for me to not turn up to one event is my choice.

(think i have supported the tour better than most)

As for the tour moving forward, only time will tell on that. If there is any probems with any of my posts you can see me on saturday(if im there) and discuss them further.

Im not going to make anymore comments on this as im getting nowhere, by simply asking for numbers of entries.

I find it rather astonishing a simple thing like this cant be done.

Hi Gareth
Obviously knowing the numbers and names of entrants isn't vital for a tourney to be run but it could spark some interest at local level, maybe a name we don't recognise, always interesting to meet new faces, or renew old friendships with someone we haven't seen for ages (we could name a few there i'll wager). If a tourney was to be played at local level, you guys in Dublin and ourselves in Club 9 before it closed for example,then the entry sheet is there to be seen if needed, at national level we are lucky to have this forum to post entries or numbers for events, i don't see the harm in that. I have always been upbeat about pool in general, if you look at posts May 14, June 10 and July 7 you'll see i'm trying to stir some interest in upcoming events, also i've been lucky enough to get to the final of a few events and i've always been upbeat and positive even in defeat to my opponent, your good self included.
I'm really looking forward to the tourney on Sat even though 14.1 is not what i would call one of my stronger games but that is the challenge!
I'm sorry for the long winded post mate and I'll see you Sat.

ps I play golf (badly) and never win money but keep dreaming!

Cheers

Stephen
