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.

USBA Rules of Conduct for all Board Members and its Officers

1) All USBA Board Members and its Officers shall not wilfully engage in any behaviour that is detrimental to the image of the USBA including:

a) behaviour at USBA Tournaments
b) behaviour at non-USBA Tournaments
c) behaviour in public at billiard-related events or gatherings

Any infraction at these aforementioned venues must be egregious; that is, it must be something serious. For example, getting upset because you missed a shot is not serious. But yelling at your opponent because they just defeated you is not acceptable. If your opponent cheated, for example, and you have a brief exchange with him/her, that might not be something that is out of the norm. That can happen with anybody. But as a Director or Officer, you must be able to keep it from getting out of control.

2) Any communication made without the permission of an Officer of the USBA or the USBA Board, public or private, that jeopardizes a sponsorship or agreement between the USBA and another company, or hurts the image of the USBA, including posts made on any public forum, such as AZ Billiards Carom Forum; phone calls; emails; etc., is an infraction of these Rules of Conduct.

3) While the Board is in discussion, whether on the Board Forum, through emails, on a teleconference or in person, all Board Members will treat each other with respect. Disagreement is normal and arguing is normal. But personal attacks are not permitted. If a Board Member of Officer gets blatantly out of hand, it is an infraction of these Rules of Conduct.

Depending on the severity of the infraction, the Board Member or Officer will be suspended for a minimum of 30 days. If the infraction is very serious, the member can be terminated. Multiple infractions are grounds for immediate termination. If the offender is not an Officer, the President can make the decision regarding suspension or termination. This can be overridden by the Board if the Board feels that the President is out of line. If the offender is an Officer, then the Board will make the decision whether to suspend or terminate the Officer.
