    Beat People With a Stick! now available on Kindle

    FYI - A couple of players who bought the Kindle version earlier received their book without photos & illustrations. There was a technical issue for a few days that caused this, and it has been corrected. If you got that version, contact Kindle support and ask them to update you.

    Hal Houle has passed

    Wonderful reminisces, Dave! Thought I'd toss in a couple more Hal adventures: He explained how, as a young man (teenager?) he would drive carriages in parades, holding the reins of 8 or 10 horses. He told me he went down in a ship in the Pacific. When he & Greenleaf were on the road, Hal...

    Hal Houle has passed

    An epitaph for Hal "He aimed to please." Hal had a gigantic impact on my life & teaching. He irrevocably changed my perspective on aiming and aiming systems, and I've been teaching his systems for over 10 years now. I'm filled with gratitude for the times I got to visit him. What a character...

    Raschig 9-Ball Set

    I have decided to part with my highly collectible Raschig balls. I bought the set new in 1995, played with it a few hours and put it away. Balls are perfect. Original box is close to perfect. These were produced for a limited time, in Germany. They were made to be the best possible balls, with...

    Hunter lombardo?

    Hunter is in Japan playing challenge matches and touring with Thorsten for a few weeks. Then he's playing the World Mixed Doubles in China with Jennifer Beretta as his partner. They will, if nothing else, look fabulous. :smile:

    Hunter lombardo?

    I've known Hunter for over ten years. He is the most sincere and passionate player I know. The whole time I've known him he has constantly been seeking knowledge and improvement. He drains me every time we're together. Hunter is my "poster child" for beautiful, simple form. He teaches with me...

    Willie Jopling's death

    What a wonderful man. Willie was a true gentleman of the game. I certainly felt honored to hang out with him a bit. I once asked him to leave me his hair. RIP.

    Dont buy a Stinger Jump Break

    Let me try to shed some light on this. I spoke with the manager at Seyberts. They have been a top Jerico Stinger dealer for many years. Yes, McDermott licensed Jerico (Jerry Powers) technology and the Stinger name, so they could produce Stingers that could sell for less. Mass production is, of...

    Read this!!! what should i do?

    Hi Guys, Tom Simpson here. I'd like to straighten this out immediately. The gentleman you saw teaching is Jim Wyant, BCA Advanced Instructor. He has taught with me for many years, and he does indeed know what he's talking about. He is not an APA player. You are confusing him with someone else...

    Skill Level of BCA instructors.

    Thank you! I agree. I struggled over what to do with Ida. She started late in life, but has more passion for it than almost anyone. In my opinion, her passion over-rode her inexperience and her lack of great athletic ability. She came through the program three times, worked hard, and took it all...
