The BCA is not a league. The BCA is a trade organization. You seem to have confused the two. You may want to look into what the WPA is if you really want to support billiards in the Olympic Games.
Well thank you, Bob,
Leagues are not in my future.
Right now I'm working on raising interest, usage and product sales with the general public in order to create a larger public demand when a "we want in the Olympics" campaign starts. It could be the difference between thousands and millions of signatures.
I know the league and tournament angle has been beat to death already and in my opinion, bringing the public into pool halls be it to play with friends or a birthday, bachelor party, singles night, and etc, as so many have tried before but with bad internet presence management will create more league players. You folks deal with them then, not me. But I do want to watch
Then bringing in a charity we all care about (and I lost my aunt to after her 20+ year battle) is just one of the additional ways to gain support from America via charity events. But it's not so much about how it could create an annual revenue stream for everybody but actually to put Billiards on the lips of more people that may never go to a pool hall but when the petition comes up, they will be more apt to sign it.
To get there there are several things that need to happen.
Pool halls and anywhere there is a table need to clean up their internet activity. They need websites, google things done, yelp things are done, twitter and facebook accounts, and then used and maintained. Right now Google lists pool halls in fields (Gary Indiana pool hall search) and so on.
Instructors need a web presence too. I'm about to build one btw. and then need to know how to use it so people can find them.
and Finally, I think if people enter the game with a clearer understanding of the rules. which are adjusted to reduce fights it will promote a fun and positive image of pool.
Thank god Dr, Dave finally rebuilt his website as it's one of the most important sites I think to anybody getting interested and anybody getting deep into Billiards. My only concern there now is data disaster recovery issues. (The data world I live in). This ongoing attention would bring in a lot more DVD sales, etc.. as well.
So, Bob, we are not going to agree on JS, and unless you have a better idea (not another tournament and a chance to win money please) how to get a few million signatures, help a charity, bring more customers into pool halls, buying cues, joining leagues, buying videos, chalk, lessons, and having fun, I would appreciate your support and not this ongoing crap.
