This is a wow and great statement to 1p, the organizers, the players and Classic Billiards. The players speak for themselves. Classic Billiards is a great pool room, plenty of parking. Jimmy Lawless runs a great room. Good luck to all.

Hey Viper. Your doing a great job. Maybe you should replace Berhman.

Was talking to Jimmy yesterday. He's pretty excited about the event. I won't be playing but I'll be there for sure. Quite a field so far. Our local rooms need all the publicity they can get. Let's keep em profitable.

If you are gonna make it 2 days and true double elim, why not extend the race on the losers side to 4.

I'd like to come, but as a duffer, I need all the extra games I can get :-)

I was gonna say, 2 Fuscos, 1 event...that is pretty noteworthy, on its own.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

This is super exciting and awesome.

I only wish I was good enough to participate. I might even make the trip up to be a spectator.

Thanks for doing this.

Keith McCready!

I don't know how you did this but that is a feat in itself. This alone should spark a little interest. It's only been about 10 years since he disappeared.
