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

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.

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.

That is East Kilbride adding a team, takes us to 13 now.

Will be pushing this event after the Erland Barlis is finished.

As I said before we had 18 last year and the teams who came all had a great time, so looking for the full amount of 24 this year.

Midlothian B added to list.

Inverness team getting added to the list, which takes us to 15.

Not going to chase teams etc, so whenever I get to 20 I will stop, we will do 4 groups of 5 teams with the top 4 in each going through.

Its a fun event , named after a man that loved his pool and someone that had only good for the game in his heart.

No dress code, just a fun weekend of pool and lets keep it that way.

Going to cap this event with 20 teams, 4 groups of 5 with top 4 from each group going through to last 16 knockout stages.

Lots of pool and will be like last year a good laugh.

How much is this event Ross and when is the payment due?

Cheers Derek.

As at today we have 16 teams entering this event but I hope to have more in the next two weeks.

I will be putting the teams into groups, if only 16 teams, then 2 groups of 8 teams playing out all 9 frames in each match.

If more teams come in, then less in each group but more frames will be played in those groups,

ie; 20 teams, 4 groups of 5 teams best of 17 frames.

So can I ask the captains of the teams to get their payments in please to RBS account number 00103064 sort code 83 33 00 , can you also give ref as well please.

Lastly I know a few teams are finding it hard to get just over 40 age players, so some have asked if say 36 plus can get in and I have agreed, just to let others know, in case they also want to do that.

Its a fun event, no dress code, lots of pool and young Chris will be there to present the trophy and medals along with the prize fund, based on how many teams enter.

£500 per team mate, that works out at £50 pp which gets you two caravans of 5 plus entry into the event, prize money based on entries.
