Due to a smaller draw than anticipated, there is an chance that this tournament could finish on Saturday and if all remaining players are in agreement, we could choose to play the final on Saturday night, which would save on travel expenses for out-of-town players and venue costs, thus increasing the prize pool. Time considerations will come into play, but this may be an option.

New season kicks off with the 2013 Alberta Masters!

A new snooker season is on the horizon as the summer’s end draws near and below you will find information announcing the first event of the season:
2013 Alberta masters
 
The 2013 Alberta Masters will be held as a sort of grand opening for a new venue in Calgary. The Royal Canadian No. 1 Legion in downtown Calgary has been undergoing renovations for some time but they are now prepared to open the doors to the public to reveal a lower-level lounge establishment with seven full-size snooker tables. 
 
This comes as a great relief to both players and tournament organizers alike who will all benefit from having more tables available and getting the events held at this location completed with less time spent waiting around.
 
 

 
September 28-29th, 2013
 
LOCATION

Royal Canadian No. 1 Legion
115 7th Ave. SE – Calgary, AB
 
Reminder:
 
As it is a new season, all players wishing to play in this event and the upcoming qualifiers and other ranking tournaments will need to pay an annual association sanction fee of $25 in addition to the entry fee for the first event you elect to play in. (i.e. if you want to play in the Alberta Masters, be sure to bring $75 total).
 
An optional players meeting will be held before the event to discuss the upcoming season and give you an opportunity to bring questions or suggestions to the table. I would like to get as much feedback from the players as possible about how we can get the most out of these events going forward.
 
To register, please e-mail  albertasnooker@gmail.com and you’re in!–or if you prefer, I can be reached on the phone at 403-399-1972

 

 

NOTE ON PARKING

Parking can be a little tricky at this location, as it is located downtown directly on the C-train tracks!
