I don't know how it happened but the owner of the new Americana Billiards in Garden City NY has suddenly passed away. Mike Zuglan asked me to let everyone here know about this tragedy and about the obvious cancellation of this weekends tournament. We would also like to send our condolences to Ken Gerold's family and friends. We're very sorry to hear of this, Ken was a very friendly and outgoing person that was sure to be a big plus for the pocket billiards world. Our hearts go out to you in this very tough time.
