Okay FB friends of the WCC... I'm trying to get ahold of Rick Leyba to talk about his tournament entry. I've tried reaching out to him with no luck. Anyone know him, please ask him to call me ASAP. Thank you, all!

WHAT GREAT TEAMWORK!! THANK YOU!... Rick called me this morning. All good!


I have a ton of entries into CompuSport and will be flipping the switch so all our friends have visibility of participants.
FYI... a LOT, LOT, LOT of entries have been received with NO supporting documentation and these entries will not be registered until I am able to see that required documentation. If you sent in your registration some time ago, you may be one of those. I've reached to all the problem entries and still have not heard back from many.
Help spread the word...
We'll be seeing all of you VERY soon!


...always trying to make your WCC experience the very best it can be...

...and we're still looking for sponsors who are looking for a cheap opportunity to give your business great exposure and contribute to the largest gathering of talented amateur pool players.

Sponsors and vendors may reach out to us here.


FEBRUARY 1st IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!... I'm ready to post the info...are you ready to REGISTER!!

Make sure you book your rooms early to get into our reserved room block. (407) 396-1400 and reference the West Coast Challenge Florida Pool Tournament

Can't wait to see all our friends again soon! .......NO DELAYED DATES THIS TIME!! Yeah!!


Just a friendly reminder....

I know everyone is excited about playing but, when forming teams, the team must consist of THREE ORIGINAL TEAM MEMBERS and the balance of the roster must be from WITHIN YOUR LEAGUE (not just your sanction...i.e. any VNEA players, APA players, etc).

If you have any questions about player eligibility...or anything at all!...feel free to FB message me (Kinikia/WCCF) or TEXT me at (941) 812-7849. :)


Tournament information will come out this week with REGISTRATION OPENING FEB. 1st. Get your fingers on the trigger!!


It's January 1st (remember... I work on 'Island Time' :) )..... Okay... It's January 12th and with the new year brings NEW-news for the West Coast Challenge Florida pool tournament!

We have always prided ourselves on being a 100% pay-back tournament...well... you can now say the WCCF is giving 100++%!!

We are SO happy to announce that we have received some financial sponsors to BOOST OUR PAYOUTS - $2,500 teams and $2,500 singles.

We are always happy to get the sponsorships that we do (cues, etc. - thank you sponsors!) and are extra happy that we've been gifted with a cash sponsor that we can give back to our participant's payouts!

We will continue to work on increasing this number but isn't it a great start to the 2022 new year?!

We look forward to seeing all our friends soon... April 27-May 1st, 2022.


BIG NEWS for the 2022 West Coast Florida Challenge... watch here January 1st for the important announcement!!


One last refund to get out and I can't find him... anyone know how I can get ahold of BEN MARKS? I think he's from the Winter Haven area?.... I'd love to hear from him so I can get this back out to him. Please have him message me and we'll connect.

I still have a few prize winnings that are unclaimed. Most of them Men's 9ball B 33-48...but there are a few others too. I don't have these player's contact info so check your finishes in CompuSport and if one of these are you, please MESSAGE ME with your address. I have these ready to head back to you right now!

Is this yours or do you know who it belongs to?  This was found at the WCCF tournament and I'd love to get it back to it...

ONE QUESTION... How are we doing this year? I'm having a GREAT time!! So nice to see our WCC friends and family (finally) again.


Counting down... boards are populated! Remember to re-familiarize yourselves with CompuSport (if you're not already). This is the software we happily use for our event and it will notify you of your event times/places, etc.


THE SINGLES BOARDS ARE POSTED! Boards were posted last night and no more refunds are available. PLEASE REVIEW THE BOARDS FOR YOUR ENTRY. There may still be an opportunity to move any mis-placed players, if necessary, and I am happy to hear any important input you may have on a player that we've mis-placed.
We are excited that we're just days away from seeing our friends again.
Some people are asking about masks while playing...they are not required in the tournament room. We are asking for minimum spectatorship this year in an effort to control the tournament rooms' populations.


We are in the home-stretch of getting the 'wait-til-the-last-minute' entries verified and into CompuSport. I hope to have all entries in CompuSport and singles brackets populated by the 2nd or 3rd. Team brackets will follow shortly after...the 4th or 5th. As a 8-ball starts at 7:00 pm, Wednesday, July 7th. WE ARE SO EXCITED THAT THIS PARTY IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING THIS YEAR!
See all our WCCF friends soon!


Now that we're getting super close, some folks are asking about our WCCF dress code. This is our dress code:

No sleeveless shirts
No flip-flops (strapped-on shoes are okay)
No short-shorts or swimwear
No earbuds or headphones may be worn during a match
No vaping inside the building

That's it!


For those who's going to the West Coast Challenge in July, make sure you call and confirm your hotel reservations. Unfortunately, this last rescheduling of the event, Wyndham did NOT roll the reservations over to the July 2021 date, instead they've canceled it. Remember, operators do not have access to these canceled folders, so giving them numbers would be a waste of your time. You will need to call the hotel (407) 396-1400 and ask to speak with the front office manager Laura. She'll have access to the canceled files and can reactivate your confirmed reservations and book a new 7/7 through 7/11 dates. Just an FYI.


2021 is going to be a better year!... Let's make a date!.... JULY 7-11, 2021. Same location in Days Inn by Wyndham (beautifully renovated). We will have an informational flyer appearing soon with additional details but make sure you put this date on your calendars now!
