Sorry to be so long. My main computer is in the shop and I have not been on much. The 14.1 event is scheduled in New Jersey for October 6-10, 2010. The promoter for this event is Dragon Promotions and I will be happy to ask them for any details you may require or you may contact them through their website at www.dragonpromotions.com.
The boxed veneers are a method of glueing the veneers around the inlay material without using a miter joint. When they are boxed you wont see a straight line up from the point material to the tip of the point as the veneers overlay rather than miter. HTH Sherm
Yo Eric, I hear you about the red chalk. Insidious stuff. Can you imagine what Rafael must have looked like with all the chalking he does(lol)? The private club sounds interesting, please keep me posted. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet in Vegas. I was actually with Russ when he texted you, maybe next year if not before. I couldn't make it up to HB for the tourney this weekend - stuff to do. Take care and be well - Mitchell
lol, well, you could always go on a vacation somewhere and still save some bankroll for a rainy day
Atm, I'm looking to get a new playing cue as a back up to the "Omen" cues I got now, hopefully I'll have some opportunities to play in bigger tournaments, but for now it's on a see-how-it-goes basis lol
Have you got any action lined up for Grady's match up in a few days?
I think that would be a great idea. The last time I went to a 14.1 tourney in Michigan was last year at The Rack in Livonia. There was me and the owner ready to play and no one else showed up. It would have been an entry into the National Championships or IIRC $400 and no body shows. If I can determine if there is enough interest I'll help put it on.
I'll check the local rooms this week and see what interest there is in the pool community.
Where would you look to hold the tourney? Mid-state like Lansing or just where we can find a room to be the host?
