If disaster struck, you are one of those forum members with a bunch of playing cues, collectable cues, and more than one cue cases.

What cue & case would you hold on to for a player because it was a great playing cue, and a case to pack it in .

Glitch in the question is you have to currently own said cue, and case.

It would depend entirely on the disaster.

Nuclear Disaster
I would have to go with my Southwest since I know that the effects of the disaster would be global and there would be a chance I might have the only Southwest completely intact and free of radiation (I have a lead case). I can also probably use it for trade once the governmental system has broken down due to the lengthened chaos.

Hurricane/Flood
In such an event, I would probably have to go with my limited edition Predator cue since this is my playing cue and the only one important to me. My LL Bean waterproof case is capable of withstanding 1000 PSI so even if it takes me a week to retrieve it, the cue should be alright.

Meteor/Asteroid/Comet
Assuming this were to happen in the Indian Ocean, it would be fair to say that 99.99999999% of all people would cease to exist in a matter of minutes. Obviously, I would want to have my Balabushka with my velvet case since I'll likely be the best player in the world after that and I'll want to look good on television.

Obviously you're married to a cue-maker and your kids make her happy.

Total BS;

Who is going to watch television once 99.99999999% of all people would cease to exist?

I can see your heart is in the right place, and that this is an emotional issue, but you really ought to think this through better.

Our house/neighborhood did flood last summer. Grabbed an emergency services bag, change of clothes and all 3 2x4 cases full of cues. Alot of things were lost or damaged, much of which was not replaced or covered under insurance. Took no chances with my cues.

Obviously, the only remaining people on the Earth (aside from yours truly) will be Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. So it is THEY who will see me on television.

I'm so out of Michael's preferred age-group, I'd have to believe he'd lose all will to live.

I would think he'd be willing to stick around for the progeny from your matings with the DCCs. (That's assuming that your prowess with the saved Balabushka would be great enough to make them want you to fertilize their eggs. Of course, given that you are the only heterosexual male left to attract them away from MJ, you might have the nuts here.)

I guess I'd lose my cues.. unless I. had time to pack. With no time to pack I'd grab the dog and the wife and split. If I had just a little time to pack there's one of my SW's I'd grab, two of my Sailors, and one Chuck Starkey (which might be the best playing cue in captivity!!! Just OUTSTANDING).

I don't have any outstanding cases. I keep meaning to get a cool case but then I'm afraid someone would steal it. I'd be scared to death to take Justis, a Whitten, a Murnak to league or the ph. So, I use a plain jane cue case that I don't mind if it takes a beating. The current plan is to have JB make me one of my/his design.

You really could distuinguish an AZer if they were holding a tolder in one arm and their pool cues in the other, standing on the curb in front of their buring home with firetrucks and sirens flashing behind them.

Tornado,

I'm jumping under the gold crown. My house can come down, but that table ain't goin nowhere.

Hurricane,

Drink Budweiser untill the water is up to the back door (it's 8 feet from the Bay). Grab my sticks (not the house cues), and what is left of my gross of master's green (126?) Double bag the whole deal in trash bags, and sling it over my back. Take it all up to the roof along with an empty keg, and a full bottle of Jim Beam Black. I will sit on the keg & drink whiskey untill the Wave comes, then I will ride the keg to safety (nearest dry pool room).

All others,

Drink Budweiser & play 9ball.

Wow, you're right. I had completely forgotten about the climatic consequences following a meteor/comet global calamity.

Since civil disorder would be a certainty, I'm glad that the lower pocket on my Porper case has sufficient room for my Glock & a few extra magazines to protect me & my cues. The case is a 3x6 so there is room for an extra butt for close quarter combat without having to risk the butts of my playing & break cue.

Case is easy I have a Guiseppe 1x2, Murnak 3x6, Whitten 2x4, Instroke Premier 3x5, and Instroke Buffalo 3x5. I keep the Buffalo 3x5. Though if I get rid of cues why not just keep the cheap 1x2.

Cue is a little tougher, I don't know if I could keep just one. It would come down to my Mike Webb, Pat Diveney, Madison Bob, or Murray Tucker. The rest, even more expensive ones, can go. It would be a tough call and I've a cue on order right now and it might trump them all when it comes.

This happened to us a couple years ago in Florida when 3 hurricanes went over us in like 2 months. I sat through the first one at home<<<sukt!

We bugged out the second and I was packing the car...I just set my It's George case with my Schon/JW cues next to me when my wife asks..." you DID get my cue right?!"....I was quick and said...oh yea it's right in here..Then I strolled into the house like nothing was up and got her cue and another George case to make it look good!:D

Something to think about>>> FYI those vacuum sealer things for the kitchen will save anything you can stuff into them. The bags are like 12" wide and you can make them as long as you want.
