West Coast Challenge Pool Tournament, April 9-12, 2015 April 14 2015, 0 Comments
Had a great time at the West Coast Challenge Pool Tournament in Tampa. The Tournament was held at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel near the Tampa Airport. The 4 day event was wildly successful with a 25% increase in player participation from last year. Thursday's 8-ball tournament itself drew well over 400 players and didn't finish until Friday morning. Friday was 9-ball and Team play was Friday and went into Saturday. Sunday was the finals in Teams and the Junior tournament was held. 36 tables were set up in the grand ballroom with 6 practice tables in another room plus a table for speed pool.
This was our first time as a vendor for this event and we were extremely pleased with the interest and feedback from attendees and players. Our Snapshot® Cues and Ferrules were very well received by all. We have demo cues that we allow players to try out before they buy. That was very surprising to many and they all appreciated the chance to try out these new products. All feedback was extremely positive. We were even approached by some businesses who were interested in becoming distributors. Word is spreading very quickly about this product.
We sold a lot of Cues, Cases, Ferrules, Tips and Accessories. Thanks to David Bucholtz of D & D Cue Repair for installing them on customer shafts. Thanks to all our customers.
Special thanks to Kathy, Stephanie, Asia Cy, Randy, Stephen Samuel from Riverside Billiards in Stuart, Florida, Don. Sorry if I forgot anyone. We will be back again next year.
