View Full Version : Johnny Archer - Group Instruction in Atlanta

Greetings all. This past weekend Mr. Cues in Atlanta held a pool instruction workshop for 25 candidates with Johnny Archer as the instructor. Registration fee was $20 and pre-registration was required. From my understanding, it lasted anywhere from 3-3.5 hrs. Based on the average time each student would get (7-8min ea) do you guys think this would've been a good investment? My initial thoughts were that it could be beneficial if you already had a solid foundation and had one problem that could be addressed in a single demonstration with a brief explanation. Let's hear the feedback.

I think it is very good and more pros should do it. It not only lets them make a few bucks but players wiil get something out of it. I don't care for you 8 minute theory. In collage you sit in on lectures that have 50 or 60 people. That is not to say each only got 1 minute of instruction in an hour lecture. Besides the price is right, little more then one night play at the pool room.

What could it hurt. You should take advantage of that deal anyway. Take a photo and enjoy. The price is right no doubt. Is that golf or pool? Either one is good.

For 20 bucks you should have went. I don't know in that situation how much time if any you would get. However there should be time to ask a couple of questions.

Now if you said 50, I'd say hell no.

Hello all. Thanks for the feedback. I found out about it on Friday night, but had guests in town on Saturday. I wanted to attend but couldn't due to having out of state visitors. I was really curious as to how much of a difference it could've made to one's game. Hopefully they'll do it again. Thanks for your feedback.

Until next time,

Who in pool would pay Butch Harmon $5000 for a morning lesson? That is why every golf course has a pro and every poolroom has a toilet.####

Anytime you have toe opportunity to learn ANYTHING, it's going to improve your game. $20 is about 3 hours of table time around here. If you only learned one thing from your time with Johnny, it would be worth that!
