SAFETY PROTOCOLS ANNOUNCED FOR ACME 2021 ACS NATIONAL POOL CHAMPIONSHIPS !

MASKS REQUIRED !

Per the guidelines established most recently by the Nevada Governor and our host venue – the Westgate Resort & Casino, and for the safety of our players – the ACS must require our attendees to follow these safety protocols throughout the ACME ACS National Championships:

Masks are required throughout the building and tournament venue at all times with two exceptions:
• You are not required to wear a mask (but we request that you do) while playing a match on an assigned table(s) or practicing at an open table.
• Concessions and Bars will be available – you cannot consume food or drinks unless you are seated at a table.
Hand sanitizers and anti-bacterial wipes will be available at every pool table. You and your teammates are requested to please clear the player table and wipe down the pool table rails, player table(s) used and chairs after completing your match – as a safety courtesy to matches following yours.
Please use your own personal chalk for your matches, and remove after play.
Souvenir ACS-branded Face Masks are available for $10 at Registration for those w/o one. Face masks are also provided at the various Westgate entrances.
All attendees and staff must social distance at least 3 feet at all times.
Please support our tournament vendors, but be mindful of minimizing congestion (social distancing) in all areas throughout the Championships, including ACS Registration.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION,

SO WE CAN BE INVITED BACK FOR FUTURE YEARS!

REMINDER: ACME 2021 ACS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS “EARLY-BIRD” DISCOUNTED ENTRY FEE DEADLINE LOOMS – JANUARY 31, 2021 AND NEW GUIDELINES INTRODUCED !

 

UPDATED GUIDELINES:
1). In consideration of the challenges many ACS/CCS leagues have experienced throughout North America due the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACS Executive Committee has lowered the local participation-week eligibility requirement for attendees from 8 matches over 8 weeks to 4 matches of play over a minimum of 4 weeks in one session that paid its 2020-21 sanction fees in the current ACS league year that began June 1, 2020.
2). REMINDER: There has not been a core player requirement for teams qualifying for the ACS Nationals for a few years. Standard and Open Teams may be composed of any eligible players from the same local league; need not be from the same local team. Advanced Teams may be composed of any eligible ACS/CCS league members in ACS/CCS leagues from within the same state/province; need not be from the same ACS/CCS league.
3). While some entries authorized forwarding their entries from the 2020 ACS Nationals to the 2021 ACS Nationals and some ACS State Champion teams missed out on offered perks due to the 2020 ACS Nationals being canceled, those benefits will be awarded at the 2021 ACS Nationals….BUT those players in these categories (as are all attendees to the 2021 ACS Nationals) are still required to regain eligibility by playing at least 4 local matches over a minimum 4 weeks in one 2020-21 ACS/CCS sanctioned-league session that began after June 1, 2020, and paid the 2020-21 ACS league sanction fees.The ACME 2021 ACS National Championships at the Tropicana Las
Vegas, May 15-22, is still months away, but the American CueSports Alliance (ACS) offers players a 20% discount on their entry fees if they sign up online or postmark their entries by JANUARY 31 ! Players gain an added discount as well in all divisions when they stay at the host hotel – the Tropicana Las Vegas! The regular entry fee period is February 1 through March 22, 2021, while a $25-added late fee period is March 23 through April 5, 2021. No entries will be accepted if submitted after the April 5, 2021 online and postmark deadline. And throughout the entry period, attendees pay a lower entry fee by staying at the Tropicana Las Vegas!

In recent years, the overwhelming majority of entrants have lodged at THE TROP ! When you reserve your rooms at the Tropicana Las Vegas, you make the action convenient for your players, AND insure the success of this event and the continued expansion of this event in future years!

By using the Tropicana reservation event code online – https://book.passkey.com/go/AmericanCueSports21 – the daily $37 + tax resort fee is discounted to $15/day (benefits incl. free in-room water, gym access, free Wi-Fi, etc.) and you gain the current room night discounted rates of $95 + tax: Sun-Thurs/ and $149 + tax: Fri-Sat nights.
