Schedule of Events

Friday November 12th

7:00pm - Champagne reception and meet & greet at Billiards Ink

Saturday November 13th

9:00am - Breakfast (cooked to order)

10:00am - Pool Clinic
All VIP guests will be separated into groups of 3 and will then spend one hour with each of the seven pros. The pros can obviously only show you so much in that time frame and so they will be be focusing on answering your questions about the game and showing you some of their own tricks of the trade. There will be a 5 to 10min break between each hour.

1:00pm - Lunch

2:00pm - Clinic resumes

7:00pm - Dinner

The pool clinic will then be done for the day, but the night will still be young.

Sunday November 14th

9:00am - Breakfast

10:00am - Begin the Pro-Am Scotch Doubles Tourney. A 20-team bracket will be in place for a 9-Ball single elimination race to three. Each VIP guest will be drawn to play with one of the Pros; as a pro is eliminated he will be assigned a new partner from the remaining VIP guests.
There will be a $200.00 prize for the winning team and a trophy for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

Lunch will be served around 1:30pm during the tourney.

3:00pm - Q&A Session/Story time: The pros will answer all your questions and tell some of their stories from all their years on the road that some of them have shared. This part is probably going to be very funny.

5:00pm - Break to change and rest (approximate break time, depending on how long the Magnificent 7 keep the talk going).

7:00pm - Farewell Banquet and Awards. (Probably Surf n Turf)

8:00pm - Exhibition: Each of the Pros will do a 25-30 min show that highlights their own personal exhibitions.

11.30pm - Photos, autographs and farewells

**The weekend-long event will be held in a private setting; all meals are included and will be eaten together as a group.

The fee per VIP for this once-in-a-lifetime piece of history is $800.00. All food is included in the price.
