I don’t know about you, but we think finding out these little hidden nuggets that make each area unique is pivotal. Not only will learning about, and perhaps implementing some new ideas, help us appreciate each other as one big team, but we will be able to follow each other’s events and cheer each other on. Big thanks to Sam Rullo and Joyce Jones for sharing some of their traditions with us.
Today, we move west, to TAP Las Vegas. Cindy Chappell has been gracious enough to share their beloved Vegas Masters Championship Tournament Series with us.
Cindy says, “Players get very excited about competing in these annual events. They foster excellence because players have to earn the honor of competing. We have to schedule these events 7-8 months in advance because players schedule their vacation time around it.”
WOW. That’s commitment. And, you know TAP Las Vegas is holding an incredible event, as well as fulfilling their promises to their players, when the tournament series has to be scheduled that far ahead of time.
From the Vegas Masters event page:
“The Vegas Masters 8-Ball & 9-Ball State Championship & National Qualifier team and singles tournaments are where the best of the best come together to compete in the summer just before the TAP League Nationals.
Over $18,000 will be awarded during this tournament series in 2015! The top three 8-ball and first place 9-ball teams, along with our singles winners will be advancing to compete at TAP Nationals and stay and play at Opryland Resort in Nashville!
First place in 8-ball and 9-ball will be crowned State Champion. All four teams will win travel packages, entry into Nationals, an invitation to the exclusive TAP Welcome Party and a team trophy to sport at their host location!”
Check out the winners who’ve earned their spot to play at Nationals!
Thank you, Cindy, and TAP Las Vegas, for pushing to the top, making billiards a sport worth playing, and representing TAP in such a positive way. We are excited to see these winners in Nashville and congratulate them on their big accomplishment of making it to Nationals!

And, while you’re at it, take a few minutes to peruse their area site. It’s chock full of information, is easily navigable, and feels inviting! Don’t reinvent the wheel, team! We are ONE, so bounce ideas off of each other and learn from each other!
As always, if you have events, photos, or traditions that you’d like to share with TAP, email Kimberly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to spotlight you on the blog!
