Sde has shown such committment and a true desire to help promote the sport of pool and the mpt that i have officially added him as part owner. He now owns a small percentage of the company which is entering into many other things.

Sde has held a full time job and still makes time to do whatever it takes to bring live streaming of our events to all of you. He also provides valuable input that will help the tour and company to grow in the right direction. Stay tuned we have a few exciting things coming for all of you!!

Please help me to congratulate sde on his achievement and in becoming a partner in our little company.
Im glad to have him as a partner!!

Sde now owns a percentage of players tour productions which owns the mpt.....players tour productions has a number of profitable ventures and we hope eventually will have very impressive professional profitable events.

So, he has more to gain in the long term by becoming a partner not just recognition for helping out the non profit mpt peice!!

He is a poster on here. Those are his initials. His first name is Steve. I don't know if he wants his last name known, so he can tell you if he wants to. You're right, I must be the dummy for answering the question you actually asked. I didn't realize that you must be female, which would mean answering the question you were thinking of, not the one you asked. Like my wife does all the time.

Neil I don't mind my name being posted. For all that don't know me I am Steve Elzinga, known here on AzB as sde.

First I would like to thank Rita for making the offer of a % of the MPT. We see good things in the furture for pool in Michigan.

btw
Neil is this the tape you are referring to.

Thanks for the kind words.

I have been involved in this game that we all love, on and off, since 1965. I have never been a great player, C+ on my best days, and never really took the game all that seriously to become a better player. For all the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years, I have resigned myself to the fact that I am missing that natural ability that will raise me to the next level.

I joined AzB a couple of years ago looking for info on the IPT (that was BEFORE I knew better) and quickly became hooked on being here. While here I have seen all of the contributions to the game/sport and this forum that so many have given and I have tried to contribute to the forums in any way that I could.

When Rita started the Michigan Players Tour, I seen it as a way that I could give back to the game/sport and support pool in Michigan.

I showed up at the first MPT event with a digital camera that was video capable, shot a few hundred pics and a little bit of video and posted most of it on line. Those pics and video can still be seen on the MPT website. After that first event I purchased new gear and with the help of Curly, curlyscues here on AzB and with the encouragement of Rita, I did my first live stream at the second MPT event, in August.

Now after streaming a total of three events with plenty of positive response and encouragement from those that have viewing and from many of the players at the events, I find myself, along with Rita, looking for ways to improve the quality of the product that we are providing.

Rita and I have enrolled in a TV production class at a local public access channel and beginning next year we will have the Finals and Semi Finals of MPT events televised locally here in Grand Rapids.

Rita has many ideas on what we can do to improve the image of pool and to promote the game, stay tuned for more to come in the future and I am glad to be a part of that future.

Rita, I think we make a great team and I thank you again for making me a partner in your company.

Thank you in advance to all who will support us by viewing our live streaming events.

You've probably seen me or know of me and don't even know it! I am usually shoot at breakroom even on their sunday tourney and have shot down sands west in their weds/thurs handicap tourneys. I'm also on 4 APA teams. But breakroom is usually where I can be found. :smile:

Good luck on the MPT, hopefully I'll be around when they have another even at Breakroom.

What's with the rude remarks? You asked the question and quite honestly, I didn't know what you were asking either and Neil was being FUNNY. Hello?

Next time be more specific, as you did this this post.

Give me a break.
