The Northern Tasmanian Billiards and Snooker Association are going to run a fun day of 6 Red Snooker on Saturday April 16th at the LWC starting at 10.00am
The competition will be in the form of a individual knockout and depending on the amount of entries on the day, will be 1 frame knockout or best of 3 (expected 10-15 min for a frame)
There wil be an entry fee of $5 per player and this will be returned in the way of prize money for the winner, runner up, highest break etc on the day
Normal rules of Snooker apply, except as follows:

B - After any foul the non-offending player shall have the following Three options.
1 Ask the opponent to 'Play Again - (from where the balls have come to rest)

3 Play the next stroke him/herself from in hand (In the 'D')

D. A player cannot snooker behind a nominated ball after potting a red ball.
There will be a form placed at the LWC in the coming week for players to express interest in playing in this tournament so we know how many people to expect on the day
The day will also feature some information on the Foul and Miss Rule for our normal snooker season and we will be holding a BBQ for lunch and a few drinks will be put on during the day
This is open to all current Billiards & Snooker players and new players for the 2011 season, with players being able to sign up on the day
