    This could be really weird

    Ok folks, in my local area we don't have a hall with enough 9' tables to do anything. I have a strange idea about having a small one pocket event on bar boxes using an 11 ball rack. Have heard of this being played but not as a tournament. Just looking for something different. Feasible...

    I am so sad

    Regret to say I won't be making Derby this year :(. Had a check up with my surgeon last Tues and asked about traveling a long trip. He said NO. Told him I went to Richard Black's Cuestock event in Houston. He got pissed, doctors can be so hard to please. Anyway, my lovely bride knows what...

    Diveying up tournament purse

    Some time back I solicited help from you folks on a good format for a small bank pool tournament. I still have this thing in my mind and really hope to try to get it together after the first of the year, maybe Spring. Since there is no true hall here in Baldwin County I got to work out the...

    Grady update

    I just left Grady about 50 minutes ago. He is at the home of David and Sharon Fricks in North Augusta, SC. I am back at his apartment in Lexington. His decline has increased. I will be very surprised if he makes it though the night. I would have stayed but have to meet Marie here...

    Mr. Gilmer passes

    Mr. R H "Professor" Gilmer passed this morning. He owned Southern Billiards in Starkville, MS for over 20 years. RH was not only a close personal friend but he was truly a friend of the world of pool. He will be sorely missed. Pel

    Rule on spotting ball?

    Never had this happen before. During a practice game of banks an object ball jaws up sitting right on the edge of the lip. Each player shoots another shot with both missing. When the incoming player is down lining his next shot the ball falls. Now I know it needs to be spotted BUT should it...

    Suggestions on tournament format please

    I would like to promote a small bank pool tourny locally. I have two things against me going in; it would be on bar boxes and I am really going to have to beat the drum to find enough players willing to try it (hoping for 16). I hope that by charging a modest entry and putting up a generous...

    Comparing 9' to 7'

    Since the playing surface ratio is 2 to 1 on a bar box and a 9 footer would the banking angles be the same? For instance, Freddy, would your 1.6, 2.6 and 3.3 work the same on a 7'er? Any of y'all ever play banks on a barbox? Inquiring minds want to know.:confused: Thanks, Pel
