Dates for CT-FL Pro-Am Tournament discussed Posted on June 21, 2016 at 09:56:37 PM by Jeff "Laca" Conway
Dates for the 2nd Annual CT-FL Pro-Am tournament have been discussed with the following dates in mind:
In Berlin CT - October 20-23 (Thursday-Sunday)
In St.Pete FL - November 3-6 (Thursday-Sunday)
The weather is usually perfect in both areas that time of year. We want to avoid Thanksgiving and Christmas time this year, and spread it apart by 2 weeks instead of back-to-back weekends like last year.
There would also be a less emphasis on "championship" jai-alai and have more a more "casual" play format over a 4-day period instead of just the 2 days. It would also wrapped around other events in the area at same time.
For example, on the weekend chosen for St. Pete, on that Thursday night, November 3rd, the Atlanta Falcons play the Bucs in Tampa on Thursday night football, while our great Tampa Bay Lightning play the Boston Bruins - the team Matt loves - on the same night! I have season tickets to both teams and have access to plenty of seats for either game.
Connecticut, of course, offers the two biggest and best casinos in the world, while the St. Pete area offers some of the best golfing, fishing, boating in America, not to mention the 31 miles of the best beaches in the USA.
Please give us your thoughts on those dates and your ideas......... Replies: There have been no replies.
