This Saturday May 30th the third event for the annual Rack-M-Up Summer Series will be held. Owners of Rack-M-Up Billiards Doug Disotell and Amanda Collins started this series a few years ago with some great success. These are handicap events where the highest ranked player is a 7 which translates to "AAA" and the lowest ranked players are 4's which translates to a "C" player. Each player must race to their respective handicaps.
The Summer Series consists of 8 tournaments which are played every 2-3 weeks depending on scheduling conflicts. For those who participate in a minimum of 4 tournaments automatically become eligible for the Grand Finale which has added money from entries taken in throughout the series. These events are very popular locally and players from Ottawa, Brockville and Prescott are often in attendance. Each field is limited to the first 16 players paid and the entry is $40.00 a tournament. If you are interested in signing up please refer to the Rack-M-Up Facebook page or call directly @ 1-613-933-9362
