Tenative Dates for Fall and Spring 2016 Titleholders

January 29-31

June 3-5



1. The new Titleholder location will be the Quality Inn in Somerset (the old Ramada Inn where we used to be) There is a charge for having our event in the tropical garden.

2.The September date will be 18 -19-20.

3. Room rates for all dates will be $65.99. I really need the players to stay here!! There is no resturant at the hotel anymore so players can bring fast food, etc in. NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED. All matches will need to be completed by 1 AM so there will only be one round played on Friday night at 6 PM as always and then Saturday at 9 AM, Noon and 4 PM. Final boards will start at 8 PM or earlier. The 2nd chance will start on Sunday at Noon. 

4. Summer session dues will remain at $10 since it's a shorter session and less teams.

6. FOR THE FALL.....Dues will go to $8 per player to cover the added costs. With this extra $1 there will be no more green fees, hotel costs will be covered and at least $500 will go to the 2nd chance event plus there should be some money left over that will go in the Titleholder prize fund.

7. After our first event back, they will look things over and make a assessment and possibly lower costs, etc. They said they had problems with a pool event in New Stanton and I told them what my competition does should not reflect on LH TAP or myself. We are better then that outfit. Any players acting like idiots or causing room damage will be banned from LH TAP for whatever time I think fits the crime.
