Billy Aardd's Club
Fall 2013 Tournaments.

There are four BAC tournaments and one Game Room tournament planned, so far, for this Fall.   In addition to those tournaments we will be running whichever handicapped ladders (14.1, Straight Rail Billiards, 9-Ball, 3 Cushion Billiards, and Snooker) are showing sufficient interest.

This is a tentative schedule (so please keep an eye here if you're interested in playing any of these tournaments).

Please check the specifics of the individual tournaments for information about tournament format, entry deadlines, and other information.

For past tournaments, and others than those listed below, please see our TOURNAMENTS page.

Bowlliards   --   Monday through Thrusday evenings September 9 through October 15,   5:30pm to 8:30pm.
(This tournament is open to students, faculty, and staff of New Mexico Tech.)

This tournament will use a "dropin" format -- you can play any time the tournament is running (games can start any time between the hours posted above) so long as there are at least three people willing to play. A person can enter as many times as they wish, but they can not win more than one prize.

Prizes will be awarded to four places in each of two divisions (provided there are at least six players in the division).   Prizes will come from the Billy Aardd's Club tournament fund.   Prizes will be determined based on tournament turn-out.

Here are the scores from:

  1. Spring 1997
  2. Fall 1998
  3. Spring 2002
  4. Fall 2006

Here are the scores from this year.

Cut Throat   (in a self-seeding format   --   Saturday and Sunday, September 28 and 29.
(This tournament is open to students, faculty, staff and alumni of New Mexico Tech.)

The entry deadline for this tournament will be 8:30 AM Saturday September 28.   Sixteen players are required for the tournament to run.   The field is limited to 32 players.

It is a full two day tournament though, so please don't sign up unless you can commit both days to the tournament (missing players from a foursome really hoses this tournament).

The players' meeting will be at 9:00 am tournament day.

It's a fast paced tournament (see the Past Tournaments link for more info) that we've run many times before.   Most everyone, regardless of their skill level, finds this a fun tournament to be in.

There is no entry fee or deposit for this tournament, but there may be prizes (depends on what's in the Billy Aardd's Club prize fund).

Here is the schedule and results for this semester's Cutthroat tournament.

7-9-8 Ball.   "C" division - October 12 and 13 (canceled, no entries), "B" division - Saturday October 26, and "A" division - Sunday October 27.
(This tournament is open to students, faculty, staff and alumni of New Mexico Tech.)
( This is a Plaque event.)

Entry Deadlines   Wednesday ("C": Oct 9, "A", "B": Oct 23), at 7:00 pm before tournament weekend.   The schedule will be posted in the game room by 8:00 pm Friday.

No more than 16-players will be allowed in any division due to table and time constraints.   The format of the tournament (number of games per set) may be adjusted to fit time constraints.

In addition to being a plaque event this running will also be a Threads tournament.   Dress code will be (example, Men:) either necktie or bowtie, a collared long sleeve shirt (any color), dress slacks, dress socks, and dress shoes (no sneekers).   Jacket and/or vest are optional.   Please note that the dress code will be enforced.

Players will choose which division they will play in at the time they sign up.   Known players may have their division entry changed by the Tournament Director (TD).

Here's the schedule for the 7-9-8 tournament thus far.

ACUI 9-ball QUALIFIER   --   November 4 through 10.
Association of College Unions International
(Please note that this tournament is a student only event.)

See History of ACUI at Tech for info about previous outings.

Play would be weeknights and weekends as needed.   If possible all play will be done on both Saturday (9) and Sunday (10).

ENTRY DEADLINE is Friday November 1 at 6:30 PM.   Sign-up sheet will be in the game room.

There will be a Men's Division and a Women's Division (no further breakdowns in either division).   We are currently figuring the top three finishers, in each division, will qualify to go to the ACUI regional tournament this coming Spring.   At the moment all costs associated with the tournament and trip must be covered by each player.

The format will depend on the number of entrants.   BCA rules for 9-ball will be used.   Each non-finals match will be at least best of 7.   The championship match will be at least best of 9.

For more information on this tournament, (and the ACUI Regional and ACUI International tournaments) please check the BAC Tournament board in the Fidel Student Services game room.

Here are the brackets and schedule for this tournament.
