Bloomington Billiards Club recently opened and would probably be closest to where you are staying. Shooter's is bigger and has some good food. I'd think of taking Tin Man up on his offer, could be one of the first in what I'm sure will be a very cool pool room.
Did the players have established Fargo ratings? If they do, how do you explain them having that 500 rating if they are really playing like a 650? If they consistently play like a 650, wouldn't they have the results a 650 would and be an actual 650?
How do you explain all of the non-sponsored players in the 700-750 range that have switched over to carbon? They aren't getting paid to use any shaft, they are choosing to use the shaft they play the best with.
I know many people feel that the pros would use wood if it was their choice. I wonder why so many of the top local amateur players (700-750 Fargo) are using CF shafts over wood? Its their choice and I would assume they are using the equipment they feel they play the best with.
How do you go through a piece of chalk in 4 weeks? I have a piece of V10 I've been using for 12 months and still have about 60% left. I think it wears slower than the Blue Diamond and Russian Magic chalk I used before.
