Whitey & lll, Howdy;

Hey fellas, hows it going? Stayed away fro the tables until today. Went in early,
got some stroke work in before Tony showed up, then we did our 3 games of
8-ball bank the 8. He's a tough old cuss. All 3 games down to the wire him 2, me 1.

Stroke was better, banks were still hit or miss. but the misses were closer. Thurs.
being 9-ball day I'll be able to get in some more bank work before the tourney.
Lookin' forward to it.

hank

lll, Howdy;

Thanks, I ordered John Brumback's DVD (1st. one), to see what he's got to offer.
So, I'm just allowing the rest of the information marinate a while longer. JB's DVD
should be here early next week. Let ya know what I think of it in a week or 2 as it
will take a while to digest the info and see how it fits with the rest and me.
This is fun. Lookin' forward to this ...

Oh yea, Today was 9-ball, came in 3rd. Position play was looking better, Banks were
for the most part working. Small difficulties with the cross-sides. The angle was hiding
and hard to find at times. Mostly with OB close in to the rail. Something I'll work on
this coming Monday.

As always everyone's thoughts and suggestions are gratefully appreciated.

Howdy All;

Saturday I was doing well felt good and was sinking balls at a good pace. Banks
were going in when I need them to and some just thumbed their nose at me
letting me know I'm still human.

Today I went in for practice and to check-out somethings. Worked the twist drill
for a few racks of balls, then 3 racks of rotation. Did well, with each. What I was
wanting to check-out were the rail positions from Freddy's book the one's where
you extend the rails and use the corresponding locations on the rails to work the
magic ... Today I was looking and working the short rail to the side pocket. yea
it's a bar box but I did measure the pockets and all pockets on both tables
come in at 4.5" (don't think I'd mentioned that bit before). All-in-all I feel
good about today's session it lasted almost 4 hours.

As always, thanks for any thoughts or suggestions.

Howdy All;

Well, I'd ordered Jon Brumback's DVD (1st one), to see what he has to say.
I'm impressed. Like his basic premise.
No practice this past Monday, to much going on what with Memorial Day an all.
Have 9-ball today and Tony won't be there so I'll give J B's method a try to see
what happens.

As always, any thoughts and suggestions are welcome.

Howdy All;

Well, had a few hours to experiment with JB's method, I like it and it works, so
far. I watched the whole thing just to see if the DVD was good all the way
through, it was, so I just went and dove into the first section or 2.
As with anything new it takes awhile to get used to it. Good thing the VFW only
charges a quarter for each rack. Now I just need to do this more to seat
the muscle memory with the visual memory then it can be like Ron Popeil, "set
it and forget it", it will work on it's own ... as long as I do my part.

As always, all thoughts and suggestions welcomed.

Howdy All;

This past Monday was just workin' on the Cross-Corner and 1 rail in the Side
according to John B. Hit'em like he says an in they go ... Got about 3 hours
of that in then Tues.'s 8-ball was ... interesting. I got the 'Shiney' quarter for
1st. one out.

Should be able to get an hour or 2 in before the 9-ball tomorrow. Figure I'll
stick with the same and get them cemented in place before I move on to the
next set-ups. ! maybe 2 at a time, slow an easy, no need to rush. Learn'em
then cement'em. Go back and refresh every so often ...

As always any thoughts and/ or constructive criticism welcomed.

Hank, you are to be admired, for in the first place coming out and stating I need help, and for going out and getting the resources to get better, and sure enough John B. methods of banking works for you. Great to hear! Whitey

Whitey, Howdy;

Thanks for that . Something learned from my Pop, He always said that if ya
have a question go ask an expert. So, I did. You and Larry have been a great
help to me so far and I hope it continues.

At times my mind gets a bit cluttered with information so I take braincations.
Those are the times when I marinate the info and see what raises to the top.
Today was one of those days, everything was coming up bones. Was hitting the
CB OK, just couldn't get the OB to go where I was aiming... Didn't intend it to be
a marination day just was.

Thanks again for all the help you've provided, wither or not you know it, you have.

All comments and suggestions welcome.

Whitey & lll, Howdy;

Marination process taking longer then expected ... must have ingested more
information then I thought.

Just so ya know I haven't given up. Still out here tryin'.
