No More Credit Cards

I put in the ability to pay with Credit Cards as convenience for some of the players, primarily the Canadian players.

But with every tournament there are several players that dispute the charges and this is a lot of forms to the credit card companies to get the charges reversed.

So with this last set of disputes I have had it, and you can thank Nick Evans for this one. No more credit cards!

For players that can use this I will still take credit cards but only over the phone and you must have a history with the MPA.

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 7-14, 2016. Plan early - get your rooms and flights reserved, and I hope to see you out there!!!

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 2016-2017 League Operators Manual.
