Viking Cues 9-Ball Tour Announces Free Entries
FREE ENTRY FEES FOR WOMEN and JUNIOR PLAYERS

The Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour, the largest of the regional tours in our country, with over $90,000 in added prize money each year, is pleased to announce that, starting November 1, 2007, we have made the following changes to the acceptance of women and junior players in our amateur events. To encourage participation in our sport by non-professional women and junior players (juniors=age 17 and under), the Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour will now be offering them FREE entry to all of our amateur tour events. In addition, both groups will still receive FREE entry and tour cards to the open events. (This offer excludes larger and championship events.) Players that take advantage of this offer will receive prizes instead of money when they place in the events.
As of November 1, 2007, women and junior players will no longer be required to purchase a tour card. Tour cards will be optional for those players but will still be required if they wish to compete in our larger events or if they wish to compete in our championship events or earn cash prizes.

This means that there will be absolutely no fees for women or junior players while competing in the open or amateur Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour events.
