2007 Deadline for Largest Ever Men's Masters World Series Nearing

August 9, 2007

Carson City, NV

Inside this email is the info for the 2007 NAFA Masters World Series in Rockford, Illinois Sept. 8-9 and for Carson City, Nevada Sept 15-16.
The entry deadline for your entry fee and entry form to be mailed to us is August 13th so that we can prepare start times and email those to the coaches as soon as possible.
I have put an entry form at the bottom of this email for your convenience. There are no Friday games so every team should be prepared to play at 8 am Saturday morning. Our goal for championship games was 3pm but some divisions are so large that we may need the 4:45 round if people don't have to fly out. If they have already made plane reservations then we will work it out.
Over the last 5 days we have had several entries by email and phone especially for Rockford and if your name is not listed here, email us and we will add it or if your name or city is wrong email us back. Please forward this info to other teams that you know may be interested in participating.
The following teams have verbally committed to play in the 2007 Masters World Series
East in Rockford, Illinois Sept. 8-9 and West in Carson City Sept 15-16

Check out our first Canadian entries one in each of the East and West Masters events.
The format for both events is 2 Round Robin games on Saturday that seed all teams into a single elimination bracket on Sunday.
As players are allowed to play in multiple divisions we will try to do our best to keep different age groups playing at different times on Saturday and when possible on Sunday although with this great of a turnout, Sunday will obviously cross over at some point. 
We appreciate the time that our Newly formed NAFA Masters International Oversight Committee has invested to make this year a huge success. Thanks to Dave Birnie our Canadian Rep and to Jim Williamson our U.S. West Rep for assisting us in having a banner year in 2007. 
Please forward this email to a team that you know may be interested in the NAFA Masters for 2007. 
Please email me back to confirm your class and your proper team name and city.
As you can see, many teams are forming both a 45 and a 50+ team for this event from their extended friends network.
Please give us input back on the ball you would prefer to use as we have three approved balls at present...the Debeer Original NAFA 44/400 polycore white ball, the Worth Dream Seam cork center with White or Yellow Cover and the Worth Kmaster cork center with white or yellow cover.
The team list for each class as of today is listed below, please proof it for accuracy and email us back any corrections of if we need to add your team to the list.
