MPA Sanctioned Teams can qualify for the ACS Nationals!

As many of you may know, we have been looking at doing a tournament in Vegas.

But instead of doing our own MPA event, we talked to John Lewis from the ACS and have worked out an arrangement that will allow all MPA League sanctioned players to play in the ACS Nationals at the Tropicana in May.

You must be sanctioned through your LEAGUE. Individual ($20 MPA Individual Sanctioned) members will not be included, as they must meet the criteria of playing a minimum of 8 weeks of league in order to be eligible for the ACS Nationals.

Our MPA players will now be able to play in all of the events out there (singles, doubles, 9-ball, 8-ball, team, etc), and the Tropicana is a great location for this event. I went out there last May and got my national referee certification at this event, and it's well run, organized, and reasonably priced for the pool player's budget. I hope that many of you will plan on participating in the 2016-2017 ACS Nationals on May 13-30, 2017. Plan early - get your rooms and flights reserved, and I hope to see you out there!!!

You can find more information here: 2017 Omega Billiards ACS National Championships

Please feel free to field any questions to John Stich, as we are very proud of this relationship we've developed, and think it's a great thing for both the MPA and the ACS.

For more information on the ACS Nationals, go to their website - americancuesports.org Thank you.

When you get a minute.

So if you are an individual or a league operator make sure you understand the sanctioning rules for the upcoming by reading the 2017-2018 League Operators Manual.
