ACS Announces $10,000 Added Midwest 8-Ball Championships at Riverside Casino
The fourth annual ACS Midwest 8-Ball Championships has a new home and an increased added-money purse. To be conducted at the Riverside Resort & Casino, January 21-24, 2010, near Iowa City, IA, the American CueSports Alliance (ACS) event will feature singles 8-ball, 9-ball, scotch doubles, 4-person team and 2nd-chance divisions, and is opened this year – and this year only! – to any players who have played a minimum of four matches over a minimum of four weeks in one session of any pool league sanctioned by a credible National or State pool association since 6/1/09. Non-ACS league members pay an extra $25 ($10 if team) for entry into any division. Complete details, entry forms and flyers may be downloaded from the ACS website at www.americancuesports.org.
Any pool league can sanction or dual-sanction with the ACS simply by paying a $10/player sanction fee. Leagues that choose to sanction with ACS receive an extra perk this year of receiving a free J. Pechauer Custom Cue!
ACS league members are qualified to compete in twelve (12) ACS state championships within their respective states, four (4) CCS Canadian regional and national championships (see www.cdnqsport.com) and the 2010 ACS National Championships to be conducted June 6-12 at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The ACS also offers both certified referee and instructor/coach programs, and the highest-placing ACS member wins a free entry into the ACS Nationals at each Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour stop – open to any amateur player. Event schedules for the Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour are also available on the ACS website..
The ACS is a non-profit, national organization dedicated to heightening the interest and awareness of cue sports through the support and sanctioning of organized competition throughout the United States and North America.
