  Ronnie Ferrier National Nines 1/3rd September
by: FlyingScotsman, 01-03-2017 11:33 AM (#1)

As you all know I have been working on an event named after Mr Ferrier, we tried something last year but it did not work, so I am going back to basics.

The Ronnie Ferrier National Nines will be a team event for players over the age of 40 as at the date of the event.

Pettycur Bay 1/3rd September.

Team size will be 9/10 and players must come from the same IM area or if not an IM member from the same league/area.

24 teams will play in groups of 6 round robin with the top four teams going through to the knockout stages and the bottom two teams from each group playing in a plate event.

As like the Scottish 5 person team event, this event will also be a fun event, no dress code etc as the timings will also be much better than the Super events as well.

Starting at 7.30 pm on the Friday all teams will play one match but finish at 11 pm.

Starting again on the Saturday at 10 am, all match’s should be finished by 10 pm that night but for the 8 teams that do not make the knockout stages, they will play a small plate event for a cash prize, this means that all teams will get at least 6 match’s over the weekend.

The 16 teams that make the finals will once again start on the Sunday at 10 am, races are raised at this point and going up to the first to 13 in the final.

Entry fee for each team is £500 with 4k prize fund for the event.

Any profit from this event will go to the World Championship Fund along with cash amounts added to the Scottish Under 23s, Ladies, Seniors and Masters Pool Championships, other prizes to the Under 18s and 15s Scottish Pool Championships.

I think Ronnie would agree that the above event is something he would have liked, a fun team event for over 40s with donations going to different areas of the SPA pool.

I have talked to young Chris and he will be there along with his mom to present the trophy he is donating along with winners and runners up medals.

I was asked at one event , if 24 teams entered that the entry fee was in total £12000, why only £400 prize money, simple answer to that is the entry fee also pays for the caravan costs which will be over 6k.

Ross

I'd be interested in trying to get a team together for this. I'm assuming this will be held at Pettycur Bay?

Can you enter a team for Arbroath please and I'll try organise a team?

Entry forms for this event will be passed out at the AGM this sunday, as it stands we have 7 teams from different areas, along with 3 more from the same areas wanting in, that leaves just 14 places left.

Sorry should have had this up long time ago but been very busy.

The good news is that we now have 16 teams /leagues saying the are sending players to this event, that only leaves us 8 places to fill.

The 15 are;

1/ Dunfermline
2/ Glasgow
3/ Glasgow
4/ Livingston
5/ Dundee
6/ Dundee
7/ Arbroath
8/ Midlothian
9/ Midllothian
10/ East of Fife
11/ Dingwall
12/ Monklands
13/ Clackmananshire
14/ East Ayrshire
15/ Uddingston
16/ East Kilbride
17/ Cumbernauld [provisionally]
18/ Gills gents Glasgow.



I will push this event from now on as we have a number of leagues with enough over 40 year olds who will want to play in this.

Son if we don't get the 24 , we don't get the 24, we just set out a format for the teams that want to come.


As it stands at present we have 16 plus Cumbernauld have asked to put them down provisionally, so that could be 17 and counting.
