On Saturday & Sunday, November 1 & 2, the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour will be at Salt City Billiards in Syracuse NY for Stop # 4 of our 2014-2015 season. New owner Frank Delconte, is generously allowing us the use of his new room as well as putting up the $2,000 added for the prize fund. Since taking over at Salt City, Frank has given the place an extensive renovation to include separate TV’s with at the bar for each of the tables in the tournament room. He has also just recently had all of the Gold Crown’s equipped with new rails and recovered in Simonis 860 HR, “The Cloth Of Champions”. The tournament room has also just received new carpet and tile! Salt City is yet another one of the great full service rooms here in the Northeast, with a full bar and great homemade food specials!! Once again you will also have the opportunity to win a gorgeous, custom, engraved, Joss Cue valued at $1,275, by participating in Salt City’s cue raffle. Anyone can participate and you don’t have to be present to win! The drawing will be just prior to the final match of the main event on Sunday. The cue can be viewed here: 2014-25 tour cue
So why not say thanks to Frank and show your support and come play in, or just watch, yet another great event with some of the games top players. And you might even win a $1,275 cue while you’re there!! For more information about Salt City Billiards, please contact them at 315-454-8643
SPECIAL: Because they are back to back time wise, and the close proximity of the 3 events which include: the event at Premium Billiards (Oct 25 & 26), Salt City Billiards (Nov 1 & 2) and Hippos House Of Billiards (Nov 8 & 9), I am giving away a free $150 entry to our Jan 8-11, 2015 Turning Stone Classic XXIII 9-Ball Open to one lucky non pro level player who competes in all 3 of these events. There will be a drawing at Hippos to determine the winner. The prize is not transferable and if the winner does not wish to go, another player will be drawn. Also, if you have already paid your entry for TS XXIII, I will refund you $150 on the spot.
Currently there are 33 eligible players.
For those needing motel accommodations, there is the nearby (just a couple of blocks away) Econo Lodge Inn & Suites, 5396 South Bay Rd, Syracuse NY 13212, 315-454-4462. Frank has arranged for a special rate of $99 if you mention Salt City Billiards. Rooms are limited so act now please.
