A couple of years ago Andy Richardson and myself were given a BEHIND CLOSED DOORS tour of the Blatt workshop by the one and only Barry Dubow. It blew our minds!

They had around 400 tables in varying states of refurbishment. There were tables of movie stars, presidents and the one of our own Queen Victoria was being used as a work bench.

I believe that they have another 2000 tables stored in an aircraft hanger somewhere in the Nevada desert.

If I was impressed at what I saw piled one upon another then I am sure that the forthcoming exhibition should go straight into every pool fans diary as A MUST NOT MISS EVENT. I remember thinking that this is not right that so much heritage is locked up in a Broadway Warehose, the public deserve to see this.

Now Barry, Barry and Victor are giving you the chance - don't miss it!

Unfortunately, I will because I only found out through Jude's posting and that is too short notice. I am choked!
