Thread subject: The Scottish Pool Association :: Ronnie Ferrier National Nines 2018

Posted by FlyingScotsman on 02-02-2018 16:41

I have had to change the date for the Ronnie Ferrier National Nines for 2018.

It will now be held on the weekend of 14/16th September, again all players over the age of 40 with a few exceptions , one being young Chris Ferrier, another other being ladies and there may be a few players [not good ones] that will want to play, just because its Ronnies event.

Now I know its hard to get players to make up a team event, even harder when they have to be that age but we are not getting younger and on looking at the amount of players both in the Seniors and Masters events, I think we can do it this year.

We had 18 last year and I hope to get he max of 24 this year.

Now a long way yet for the event but I'm asking players over the age of 40 to start thinking about putting a team in, no payment just now, in fact no details other than it will be in groups of six subject to us getting the full 24 teams.

Like the Jackie Paterson Scottish 5 person team event, it will be a fun event with no dress code.

So I'm asking here and now, just for players to start posting their interest, that way I can talk to the captains etc and make sure we fill the event in time.

It did Gary, it clashed with my UK championships, I had a decision to make and decided to go with the Ronnie Ferrier event.

Ross the East of Fife Pool League have the ball rolling. We had two last year so hopefully get the same again once interest is confirmed

Just saw a good few posts on Facebook today, its always sad when you see that another year has went by since he left us.

Anyway, lets start getting this full.

12 teams have informed me that they are coming in at present, we had 18 last year, lets see if we can get to the full 24 this time around.
