  WOS Tour 2018 event 2 draw!!
by: vinnyvegas, 29-01-2018 07:36 PM (#21)

Firstly I would like to say a big well done to liam dunster on winning the event at the weekend,there is just no stopping him!!!
Although farrell did come mighty close in the semis...
A big well done to david rooney teaching the final,great to see david back playing and at the business end of events aswell..

Now I'm sure maxi knows as we all do that the tables were not great at pockets at the weekend but let's remember that this event was meant to be in the qclub but due to wifi issues we had to change the venue at very short notice...pockets was scheduled to host tour event 3 in march and maxi had planned on having the tables done a couple weeks b4 that event which would have been fine,but with the change in venue only giving him 3/4 days notice it was just not possible for him to get them recovered in time for the weekend..I did try other venues also such as ballroom Glasgow and Cuehere but neither could hold the event at such short notice..so simply swopping events 2 & 3 around was the only thing I could do...a big part of this tour is the excellent streaming we have and it takes it too a whole new level..so clubs must make sure they have the wifi facilities to support it otherwise they won't get the events it's that simple..

Event 3 will now be held in the qclub charing cross provided the wifi issue has been sorted!!!
I will put contingency plans in place and give plenty notice if anything has to be changed..but I have been told that it will be sorted by middle of Feb..

I would like to thank all those for adhering to the dress code,this was only implemented at the start of this year and bar 1/2 folk everyone was dressed appropriately...everyone should now know from now on..

I have started up a fb page for the tour as most of you will know and are on already but if your not then look it up on fb and join the page..all details are on there also.

The draw for event 3 eill be carried out on wed night...!!

Great coverage and well run event although same old problems with matches running into small hours of morning.

Runner up only getting 180? Seems very very low for a main event. Breakdown of entry fees / prize money available?

The reason event went on so late was that we could only use 6/8 tables on the Sunday as one was rolling all over the place and 1 had a big rip on it and players didn't want to play on it which is fair enough..
As for prize money..
The only reason it seems low is because 5 per player goes into the grand final from each event...
All players know this..
But people not on the tour may not,they just look at it from the outside and don't know and think prize money quite low..
When in actual fact the prize money for the grand final is in the region of 4500-5000!!!!

Hopefully as we move forward we can get more sponsorship on board and we can put more money into each event aswell !!
