Chris in NC - 09-14-2019, 06:55 AM

Met Chris in NC, and played for a couple of hours at his poolroom.
Nice guy, and I talked to him more than I practiced. Clean poolroom, clean tables, and nice people.
.Chris uncovered his tightest table , and let me play, and it was a lot of fun. I was only there for a couple of days, so I did not get to play anyone,(no one pocket players around), but if you are in the Boone NC area be sure to check it out.

Thanks for the report. I always like hearing verifications of online personas, even though I never really questioned this guy as he always seemed legit.

Where do you normally play? Iíve been playing almost nothing but one pocket for a while now so I feel your pain.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

I've played there once. We stopped in for just a few hours. I didn't get to meet Chris, he wasn't there at the time.

His room was very clean and the food was good as well.

I would highly recommend anyone to stop by his place and hit a few. The next time I get out his way, I'm gonna give him a call so he can maybe make arrangements to meet and play.

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Looks like a nice, clean place.

But did PT scare off all the action?

Yep....I pronounced Gabriels correctly...they figured I knew something.

Ok. So it is Country Retreat in Boone nc. Sorry I thought he was describing the place as a country retreat in the post 5. Good authentic name for the place. Looks very nice in the photo.

While I haven't yet been to Boone, I feel a visit there sometime soon is necessary...especially considering I've known Chris for more than 18 years! Soon Chris...soon!
