New Guy Here.. - 12-09-2017, 02:49 PM

Hello AZBilliards. My name is Julio Rice. I've been spending a lot of time here on the forums recently. Mostly in the Ask a Mechanic section. I am an up and coming table mechanic myself. I started working with Kerry Rhodes, of RidgeBack Rails, a little over a year ago. I met him right at a time when he was wanting to get out of servicing tables so we struck a deal for me to apprentice under him and I would take over the service side of his business. A Better Billiards Service. Kerry is still working hard every day making the finest replacement rails for your Valley and Dynamo tables, as well as some others. I have learned a lot from Kerry and look forward to learning much, much more from the other talented mechanics here on AZBilliards. I look forward to getting to know the folks here and hopefully can also be a contributing member in the near future. I guess I should also add that I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Take it easy. Julio

Hi Everyone,
Not entirely new here, but just now saw this, so thought I would introduce myself.

From Central Illinois.

Been playing pool for the last 25 years. In my early 20's I was shooting pool almost every night in leagues. Things have slowed down as I've gotten older and now only shoot 1 night a week and its certainly not taken as serious as in my earlier years.

I come here to enjoy looking at all the custom cues for sale.

In my case:
Huebler 1 of 1
Huebler Custom Chess Set Cue
The Frog by Robin Dobson

Wish List:
Paul Huebler's US Open Cue

Not new to the game, but started getting serious about it several years back. I am what I would say better then average, but long ways from being what I refer to as a scratch player. Play with a Predator and the new Vantage shaft. Play in ABA league and a C+ player. As a 71 year old, I am an old dog, but always looking for ways to learn new tricks.

Good afternoon all. Apparently I need to introduce myself now that I have ruffled some feathers.

I'm a mechanical designer who has bounced around the Midwest and no lives in NC.

I've played pool off and on for 20 years (currently 38 years old). Only about 4-5 years of that were at all serious. I'm hoping to start working on my game and step it up a good bit. I'm currently an APA 8-ball 4/5, so clearly there is a lot of room for improvement.

I'm not trying to be a world beater, I just want to be more consistent and hold my own.

Only interesting bit about me is that I met my wife at a pool tourney, so at least I have that going for me.

The leagues are organized in districts and divisions.
Districts cover a smaller area (so closer to home). Levels are a bit lower. Played in the evenings on week days.
Divisions cover a bigger area of Holland (higher division = bigger area), played during weekends and play level increases with each higher divisions too. The highest division has players like Niels Feijen, Marco Teutscher, Nick vd Berg etc.

Hi people. I'm from Hawaii, hence my moniker "islandboy." I learned to play at "Guys & Dolls," in Shreveport, LA.

Love to play, but have always taken multi-year breaks from the game. Just starting to hit balls again and it sure feels good.

What a great game we have.

Exclamation A new business plan for 2018 - 01-12-2018, 09:32 AM

Hello everyone in the AZ community.
I want to welcome all of the new members.
A big heart felt hello to all Veteran members.
Since 2016, I have used the title CHRIST Billiards n More for my business.
I wish to extend my gratitude for all of my customers over the last 10 years.
In July 2015 I myself became a homeless Veteran. For 16 months I learned how to survive without the normal creature comforts of a stable home or job.
I returned back to GA. in April 2016, but I was still homeless waiting on disability.
The housing programs or lack of are definitely inadequate.
I now live in an apartment that I call home.
This year, I have decided to do even more with a percentage of the business proceeds, which will be going towards helping our homeless Veterans.
A minimum of 5% from sales will be set aside for our male Veterans project.
In addition a 5 day grace period will be implemented. Anyone in the U.S. who is not happy with his or her purchase can return it & receive a refund. International customers minus shipping charges.
I am now a dealer for Sly Custom Cues & Dominiak Custom Cues & shafts.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you & GOD bless you,

Hello,
I haven’t played for at least ten years and am thinking of getting back into billiards. Last time I played was in a friendly 9-ball tournament sponsored by a billiards/pool discussion forum (I forget which one).

So, just saying hello from Wisconsin.
