I will probably offer T-shirts, posters, caps, mugs (winners' choices) from: DrDaveBilliardTshirts.com

would also do it just for the fun of it :)

but if offered...

would wear this one with pride on the next house tournament :)

I'm glad you already have one picked out. Start practicing!
finished recording a fun PPC try 🙈

bad scoring (since less than 3 digits) and bad position but some very nice and funny pocketing :)

No missed balls for 20 racks and 115 balls. Should be fun to watch.
(Tomorrow is my last day in April to try a perfect 100. Will be busy for the rest of the month). But perhaps this run is good enough for the long sleeve shirt :)

You already have a 97, and you're going for 100, and I haven't even made the Challenge official yet? Good work! I suspect you will have a T-shirt "in the bag." Now I'm excited to go for the 100 ... after I actually post the Challenge. :)

actual run starts at minute 5, but I figured, the footage before is also entertaining.

pocketing highlights in layouts started at min 21 and 39.
Nice job. You didn't jump up and down high enough to get to the rail, did you? :geek:

Great shooting!

FYI, the PPC 100 Challenge is now official, and I managed to beat you by 1 point (98). I plan to try for the 100 soon.
