Attention players slated to play in the “B” Championship event

The tournament is full - One Month To Go! 

The 3 Cushion “B” Championship is about a month away and we have 64 players ready to go. We thought we’d touch base with a few bits of information that might be helpful to all players.

Players’ Meeting: This will be held at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 6, 2019. If you know you might not be there please contact me beforehand.

Sign In: Please remember to sign in when you arrive in the tournament area as we’ll need your contact information. You’ll also be able to pick up your voucher for the buffet at sign-in.

The Draw: The draw will take place immediately after we discuss the format and rules of the tournament. As promised we will announce the top 8 seeds and draw randomly from there.

We’ll look forward to seeing you on January 6th and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns in the meantime.

Censoring Posts

All of the pages that require you to identify yourself with your Username and Password carry a "lost Password" link that you can use to have a code e-mailed instantly to your e-mail address of record that will allow you to create a new password. Because of the Encryption that we use for your password, we cannot tell you what your password is.

Can I be notified by e-mail when there are new posts?

Yes, the Subscription feature allows you to subscribe to the entire Board, individual Categories, Forums and/or Topics, depending on what the administrator of this site allows. You will receive an e-mail notifying you of a post that has been made to the Category/Forum/Topic that you have subscribed to. There are four levels of subscription:
- Board Wide Subscription
If you can subscribe to an entire Board, you'll get a notification for any posts made within all the forums inside that board.
- Category Wide Subscription
You can subscribe to an entire Category, which will notify you if there was any posts made within any topic, within any forum, within that Category.
- Forum Wide Subscription
If you don't want to subscribe to an entire Category, you can subscribe to a single forum. This will notify you of any posts made within any topic, within that forum.
- Topic Wide Subscription
More conveniently, you can subscribe to just an individual topic. You will be notified of any post made within that topic.
 
Each level of subscription is optional. The administrator can turn On/Off each level of subscription for each Category/Forum/Topic.
To Subscribe or Unsubscribe from any level of subscription, you can use the "My Subscriptions" link, located near the top of each page to manage your subscriptions. Or you can click on the subscribe/unsubscribe icons ( ) for that Category/Forum/Topic you want to subscribe/unsubscribe to/from.
