So lets see. I got to VF at about 6ish PM on Friday. We stayed at the McIntosh Inn. As soon as we walked into the hotel, there were 3 people coming out with the cuecases slung across their shoulders. Seeing that just makes me feel like I'm in my element and will be for the next 3 nights. Anyways...

We drove over to the Convention Center and bought tickets. (We bought tickets everyday instead of getting the weekend pass which would've saved us some $$$!) It was my BF's first time in VF so naturally I took charge. We walked over to Dr. D's booth, checked in with her and continued on. I stocked up on supplies from Runout Sportswear. Fascination set upon my BF on seeing everything billiard. I told him, "wait 'til we get downstairs."

Ah, the ring tables. The breaker, the racker, and yes, the rack was back again. I think in total, I made about $300. So our food and tickets and whatnot were paid off by our winnings!

We went to Rack 'Em Up Billiards in Downington. They had about 15 tables and 1 Snooker table. We were there for about 2 hours. The room was ok. On Sunday night after the expo, everyone headed out to Mika's new room, Planet Pool in Limerick (sp?). I liked this room a whole lot better. They had 32 tables, other activities towards the back (I think air hockey tables) and classic rock coming out of the speakers. I was in the zone. There was plenty of action going on, Frankie Hernandez playing a guy I recognized from the ring tables, Keith McCready playing a young'un, Rob Saez playing another young'un, with the likes of Parica, Archer, Morris, Immonen, Alvarez, Williams, and Souquet watching and walking around. It reminded me of a mini Q-Master Billiards in Virginia during the Open. We played there for several hours, resulting in our getting back home at 4:30 AM on Monday.

She forgot her camera and when she returned with it I could not find you.
It was a pleasure meeting you /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
