Hi Charlie,

Spike wants a rematch on the Preditor table. LOL We all had a blast playing with you Charlie. Your not such a bad kid. BTW, nextime I'm watching you. I'm checking your rack and sticking me with the break cue to shoot with was really sneaky. HAHAHAHAA

Hi Carol,

You should of seen the look on Charlies face when you kicked that ball in crosscorner. You smoked that puppy. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif We looked at eachother in shock. Great shot Carol. Too bad the cb followed it in. Spike loves Charlie. He still brags about it at the ph. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif


C.C.~~that Carol is going places and that Charlie is way too young to play that good. LOL

I managed to download the poster. It's about 25 times larger than my screen so it took a while. I see Worldpool.com is doing something live on the internet. That may be the way to see this event. I've been to Pro Billiards and there is barely space for 20 spectators if you don't mind standing. I do believe 1200 could be accommodated because when I was there to watch a tournament I watched about 30 minutes before leaving.

I didn't see anything about UPA sanctioning. The UPA will probably schedule a conflicting event to pull all these pros away. I'm surprised the Seminoles would get involved with such an ambitious event at such a small venue.

I might try the PPV broadcast but I hope they have sufficient bandwidth to keep the video coming. Otherwise they might get many chargebacks on the credit card purchases. I have to check into how to do that.
