Not to step on anyone's toes or disparage past efforts and history, but personally, everytime I would walk by the "Room of Excellence" signage I would chuckle to myself, thinking it sounded like something from a bad corporate seminar or convention.

Perhaps we should change the name. One possibility discussed was "The Tom Ferry Room of Excellence." If Greg Sullivan would still let us have the room without the AZB/onepocket.org designation, perhaps that would be a better name.

Please post your comments and suggestions; the room organizers (whoever the hell they are for next year) will consider them.

We also need volunteers for things like name tags, store visits for refreshments (you need to have a car), room goon (certain stature requirements must be met), and "friends of pro's" (recruit your friends to make room appearances).

It wasn't exactly my first choice of names last yr when Tom came up with it. In the end, it was his idea and he got the ball rolling. For that reason alone, I don't mind keeping it around.

We're not there to impress anyone or attract people except the pro's. The majority of members in the room know at least one or two pro's so a room name change won't hinder getting them in to play.

Well, if you want a couple of hundred people paying $14.95 to enter, then the name is obvious:

Keep the name meaning what it is, just seems to makes more sense to me. If you ask a pro what is AZBilliards.com or onepocket.org they can tell you. But if you had asked them 3 years ago before the room at DCC, only some of them would have any idea what you were talking about. That room has really made people aware of the sites.

Tom was always nice to me in private and public posts. I wouldn't say this if I didn't think it makes a difference. Our members increase somewhat during and after DCC and that has to say something. I don't have stats for this, but we do seem to get lots of new posters during and right after the tourney and I for one think the room is a part of the reason. We had pros come post after last year’s event. You guys remember how many pros popped their heads in just to find out about the website. That should speak wonders. Maybe I am just an idiot who doesn't get it.
Donovan, I agree with you about the AZ room being recognized by pros and others. The word is being spread and I am for keeping it the same. Changing the name would only confuse the people who do not currently frequent AZ. Tom Ferry had a great idea but it makes sense to keep the name. To memorialize Tom, we should have create a special, annual pool tournament named after him. Name recognition is important and I see no harm in AZBILLIARDS.COM getting a little extra recognition in the process. AZ continues to grow and has some of the finest cueists on any of the forums.

A friend of mine said that was disrespectful to Louie Roberts. Guess what Monica & Gerda said??? "Who is Louie Roberts?" They have never even heard of the man. This coming from two women pro players who live their life around pool. Who have been to the DCC every year I can remember & they never thought to ask anyone who Louie Roberts was??? Amazing.....but you can see naming the room after Tom Ferry won't hurt the recognition of having a room for members to go to. Just like it doesn't hurt the recognition that Cliff Joyner won the Louie Roberts award last year. I bet Monica/Gerda knew who won, just didn't understand the significance or the fact that Louie could give each of them the wild rack.
Anyone who ever saw Louie play, would never forget him.

I don't see anything wrong with the name AZ Billiards Room. Short and sweet, and sounds like a pool room, which it is. That's what I called it all week, and most everyone seemed to know what and where it was.

Every year (if we keep the same name), it will become more recognizable. I'd like to see a plaque in there memoralizing Tom Ferry (Martin), who was the inspiration for this room.

AZ Billiards is pretty well established in the pool community by now and is a known entity.

I bought a whole bunch of James Brown's and a really nice pair of speakers. Unfortunately the after hours party idea never happened.

Name change I have no problem with opening it up to members of other forms. Absolutely not!!!!!!!! It is free to join AZB they all know about AZB.
We had things taken from room by non-members this year. Its hard enough to get table time as it is why let anyone in that has 25.00. I think if you don't pay by deadline no way take their money at tourney. We had people playing that the room moderators knew had not paid in my opinion.
If there are rules they should apply to everyone no exceptions period.My thought on spamers in AZB room is this you can listen to their line or not.
I listened to none of them thats your choice. I think when people come in an want to know whats going on an can they play: We should have some form of printed material to present them an if they want to join they have one year to make up their mind. AZB an fleabay both have scammers you better be careful who you let in you house. We had gentlemen an ladies an everyone was treated with respect lets keep it that way.
