View Full Version : PEORIA WPBA TOURNAMENT
06-11-2004, 11:05 PM
My wife, Connie & I spent the better part of Thursday & Friday at the tournament. Our main reason for going, was to spend some time with Carol Clark,(CarolNYC). It's the 1st time we have met in person. She is so shy, quiet, & reserved................NOT. We had a tornado go very near the Casino, but it went AROUND us because, it could not compete with Carol's energy. My kids say we have a New York accent now.
I had made a playing Q & break Q for Carol & told her to play with them for a month. Then,if she liked them, BLACK HEART Qs would help to sponsor her & help her reach the next level. To our surprise, after only 2 weeks with the Qs she says she loves the look(Ebony & Ivory), & the way they play. SO.... I guess it's official, we are a new team...JER

You won't be disappointed! Carol is a go-getter! Are you still recovering from The Hug? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

It was good to see you and your wife again this week. You are both great people. You are paired with a great one as well. Carol has alot of determination and she will get there. The cues are beautiful. I wish you both luck together as a team.

Jer, at first I thought you tied up with the wrong Carol. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif
Then I got to the "NOT". You found the right Carol. There is no way a little Tornado could compete with her.
You picked a great representative and I can't wait to see her new cues, up close and personal. I have to wait until next month /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif, at the Md. State Championship, in Laurel, Md.

Jer, I saw the cues last weekend in Parsippany. They're gorgeous!!
But I'm a little disappointed. You didn't say anything about the purple hair! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
06-12-2004, 09:39 AM
The hair is back to black...JER /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif
06-12-2004, 09:44 AM
That'a a shame. It was a really sharp purple!
06-12-2004, 11:37 AM
/ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I guess the thing I forgot to say, in my 1st post, was how much we like her. I take it back, we just love her...JER
06-12-2004, 12:57 PM
Nice looking bunch of folks, eh? Oh, and the cue's O.K. too! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
I miss the blue and purple hair!

(I love that little black heart on the butt cap.)
"Carol's playing cue is Ebony, with 8 inlayed Ivory points & 8 inlayed Ivory diamonds. Her break cue, has 4 large Ivory diamonds & is a hustler type & is Ebony & Maple. All of her shafts are made from laminated maple(like plywood), & play great. Her break shaft, has the center ply made from a red vaneer,so she can sight it like a rifle. I figured "this girl needs something different", even though she does stand out on her own."
I wouldn't mind seeing a picture of that cue with the red stripe down the middle... /ccboard/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

I met Carol.
After 2 minutes I felt like I had known her forever. What a cool lady.
06-13-2004, 09:19 AM
She's mine...I saw her first /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
06-13-2004, 09:26 AM
I missed you Wally. Carol said that you were there ,but since I didn't know what you looked like, I had no way of knowing who you were...JER
06-13-2004, 09:41 AM
What I liked best was the inscription of the nickname of the Fire House that's sponsoring Carol - The Nut House!!
06-13-2004, 10:13 AM
I thought the boys in the firehouse would like that...JER /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
06-13-2004, 10:15 AM
And I'm guessing that Carol's brother is the biggest "Nut" in the House!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

No, Im the "nut" ha ha ha
They are the "Nuthouse"because they go "above and beyond" the call of duty /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gifSo, I guess that makes them nuts! /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
June 2nd was the medal ceremony for the Fire Dept.-I dont know if anyone has been in the company of ,what seemed like a million firemen,but it was quite overwhelming /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

God that's another song to write. ####

What bueatiful pics. Gosh, Carol and Jer and lovely wife Connie are 3 of the best people I know and I just think it's so great to have them team up. I also really like the firehouse pic. That is so cool that Carol is such a fighter. So, proud of her family and makes me proud to know her. Thanks SPetty for putting those up. Made my day.
This place is so special here. We here at the CCB stand by one another, no matter what the outcome may be, we're family and stand as one. Where in the world can you say that? BD mag can run with this story and many here and I'm totally surprized they never caught on yet. Inside Pool knows. Wish they did a feature story on our wonderful board. I might not have physically been there with Carol but I was there. Oh yea, I was there. Go Carol, Go Carol... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
06-14-2004, 08:22 PM
Here's a neat pic of Carol's "nuthouse" men! If I squint real hard, I think I see Carol on the front row somewhere...

Carol~really missed you in Vegas!
06-15-2004, 11:15 AM
Wow that picture turned out great! My compliments to the photographer /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
It was really nice seing you and your wife again Jer. That is an awsome cue and it just looks great in Carol's hands.
Carol it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope we can meet again soon. Hopefully we will be able to spend some more time together laughing it up. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

/ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gifNot often, can you grab someone in the lobby, who is such a good photographer. Nice to see you again & thanks...JER
