Lincoln City

There's a big pool tournament that's held twice a year in Lincoln City, Oregon.

It's almost impossible to find up-to-date information about this tournament via web search. This page is my effort to make the information searchable.

The tournament is called the APA NW Invitational. (APA stands for American Poolplayers Association, NW stands for Northwest.) It's held at the Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City. Its tagline is "It's better at the beach."

You can usually find the information packet and the entry forms at this URL:

If the information packet for an event isn't posted yet, you can sometimes find the dates for the event on the OPAL calendar.

The November 2023 9-ball event will be held from 11/8 to 11/12.
