Thanks for the offer monstermash!, but for me where I am its fastest to go over route 2 out of greenfield then a bit south to chelmsford, so I think would be traveling well north of worcester.

What town are you driving from?

I'm in Templeton, not too far off of Rt. 2. If you'd rather drive in with someone, we could meet up, and I could drive the rest of the way to give you a break from driving.

Hey Rodney, I would be coming out of north adams over the mohawk trail then route 2 east, I really don't know if I can make it yet so I can't make it a definate, but when the time comes maybe I will give you a PM. Thanks for the offer.

Found memories of North Adams, that's is where I went to school back when it was North Adams State College before they tried to upgrade there image to Mass College of Liberal Arts. Now I don't have an alma mater. lol.
Does the Camp Light still exist? That was my main watering hole.

Ahhhh, yes the school is ever changing it seems. The camplight is gone, the college crowd hangs at a place called the pitchers mound now.

Hi Tom, I was thinking the same thing that it would be nice to meet people behind the screen names. Hope I can make it, should be a lot of fun. I remember you when I used to travel with "Chicken Man" Dunsmore a little back in the old days.

Tom,

Please bring a copy for me. I remember reading your articles in the "All about Pool" magazine years ago. I think we may even have met once or twice IIRC.

I'm currently in the middle of reading "Playing off the Rail" by David McCumber for the third time and I'll make your book next on my list. :thumbup:

Country Club is alive and well. I can't make it though, I have playoffs.

BTW Tom, I got your book from Amazon, it arrived today. You showed it to me at Snookers, but I wasn't prepared to buy it at that time. It could be a while before I get to it. I've 3 novels in front of it and 4 or 5 technical books I'm going through in parallel, but I'll post my opinion when I read it.

Hey Guy, just to let you know they won't let the guys play in the poker game, it's a league and you need to be a league player.

Also to scottyr44, pm me if you like and I will give you my cell. I'll give you a few games. They also have a thursday night nine ball tournement. I see your on leave from the service, I'd be happy to put you into the tournament some thursday night as a small thank you and sign of respect for your time in. Stay safe.

I know it's just a couple of days away, but I'm still not sure. My work schedule is changing again(3rd time), and I'm not sure what's up. I would say my chance of going is about 75%.

Mark K. and Joe started this a couple of years ago. It is a little north of Hartford. It is kind of a mini-tournament, cue show, and get together in one. I went to the first one and enjoyed it, but then Mark changed it to 2 days and I didn't want to get a motel room for it, it wasn't good enough to justify that IMO. If he left it at one day I would have gone last year too. I presume he'll be keeping it at 2 days and I won't be going this year.
Watch for post by Joe (Classic Cues) about it.
