    I don't know how you do it Bill, but I'm always game buddy! Just need a week of sleep after keeping up with you lol
    Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.

        Great idea Jeff! I also like the golf game which whenever I played years ago was a great opportunity for socializing and to really get screwed by someone or do the screwing. Lots of mixed emotions in that game. I'm really looking forward to seeing all you guys.

          I am in for this...but I don't think we need ball in hand...just name your pocket and break...I can probably get 5 or 6 in 5 racks...

              Last minute rule change... Hacker is barred.... Just kidding, he's not barred, he's just limited to 1 try... Just kidding, any member who shows, whether in the tournament or not, is welcome to have a go at the 5 rack challenge as far as I'm concerned... The more the merrier and the bigger the pot...

                    It's funny how times have changed. I remember beating Ronnie Allen and Ritchie Florence in the same night with this prop. They were shooting at twenty eight and couldn't get there but they could shooting at twenty seven. Actually I was more afraid of Ritchie than Ronnie. Ronnie packed it in after losing $100 but Ritchie made me bet all my cash which was $160 as I started with $60. It was close but he just couldn't make twenty eight. I think it was because he didn't know how to break the balls. Nowadays I think some great players are shooting at the high fourties maybe more. For any you who knew Ritchie, he was one of the greatest players who loved action I ever knew. I miss him very much. Pool would be a lot better today if he were alive. I'm gonna make myself cry.

                      Cost is $5.00 per attempt... All the money goes into one pot, you get Unlimited tries over the course of the tournament, each costing $5.00, right up until the finals of the one pocket, or whatever time is set at the start of the contest...

                      It's the old 5 rack one pocket challenge... Rules are very simple, Ball in hand anywhere in the kitchen and you break open the rack and play the CB wherever it stops... Run as many balls as you can for that rack and repeat this 5 times and add up all the balls you made in the 5 racks... If you scratch on the break, that rack is done and you subtract 1 from your total at the end of your 5 racks...Every miss, and every scratch ends that rack and for every scratch a ball must be deducted from the overall total... Highest total ball count made in your pre break designated pocket for the 5 racks gets the whole pot...winner take all...

                      I'm good for probably 10 tries at the cash...( $50.00 for those of you who ran out of toes and fingers) Anybody else think they can run a few balls?
                      I am in for this as well!

                        We had the pros shooting at 37 and they didn't like it.

                          I remember Schmidt said he'd take 5-1 to run all 15 in one pocket. Break from the kitchen, and then shoot.

                            That sounds more realistic to me Joe...it sounds easy but one bad rack where you are hooked, not you have to get to 35 in4 racks (or whatever the goal is).

                            I'm sticking with my prediction, the winner of this will get between 33-37 in 5 racks (with no ball in hand after the break)

                              my prediction of 50 was with bih......you have to break a certain way to do that--i watched corey do this for hours, he ran so many 15s, i got sick of watching him and went home......

                                After spending 4 hours of my life I will never get back on this yesterday I think that the winner will be in the low 30's. Without ball in hand.

                                With ball in hand possibly a 38 or 39...don't think any of the members will get more than that...(cept maybe ghostie)

                                My average's without bih was 4 and with bih 6....not an easy prop.

                                Even with a high run of 11 I still had several 1 and done.

                                The best I did was 26 no ball in hand, and 30 with...very good practice routine...thanks Jeff...

                                I will however throw 50 at it just to see where I stack up against the other members though...
