Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.
We would like to highlight our offer to any beginners or intermediates who don’t normally play in national tournaments. UKBGF members who fit this description can play at our event for just £10. This will allow you entry into not just the main event but also the Fylde and Washington trophy events and Freerolls. You will also, at extra cost, be able to enter all of the side events. If you are a non member the cost for this offer is £20.
So what is in it for the seasoned player ?
Well, this year we have extended the event into three days – the main event is still Saturday/Sunday. The registration desk opens Friday 12pm and play will start at 2pm.
We have 3 Freerolls throughout the weekend worth £100 each. Plus:-
- Blackpool Imperial Cup
- Fylde Trophy
- Washington Trophy
- Mini Match
- Super Jackpot
- Saturday Night Triples
We also have our charity side event as usual for a handmade board kindly supplied by Erhan
This year, due to the generosity of P40 boards, we have a beautiful board from the USA which will be first prize in our second charity event , which will be the P40 Trophy.
Saturday Night Triples is a new event which will see 16 teams of 3 per team players competing for the trophies.
This year due to the generosity of the hotel we are able to offer a £1000 bonus to the winner if they are resident at the hotel. We are moving into a bigger playing room and this has enabled us to make this unlimited entry. We currently have 96 players registered.
Payout to the winner, including the bonus will be £3000.
We will be paying the top 8 in the Imperial Cup, top 8 in the Fylde Trophy, and top 4 in the Washington Trophy.
We will also be paying out three £100 freerolls.
As many of you already know this is a charity event and the organisers take no expenses, with all equity from the event this year going to the Alzheimer’s Society. You will be pleased to know last year your efforts helped to train a guide dog.
As you can see we have a packed weekend lined up for you so why not make a long weekend of it? The vast majority of you will be arriving on Friday so why not skip work, miss the traffic and get there early and relaxed in time for the afternoon events.
Even better take advantage of the hotel’s Thursday night offer of B/B for just £36 pp double and join me in the hotel bar Thursday night where I will buy you a drink .
Not enough? Join us Sunday night for the traditional post tournament curry.
