I'll be in Scranton for a couple of days this weekend with a Saturday afternoon to kill.

Does anybody:

1. wanna play some?

2. know a good pool hall?

3. have any advice on things to do?

I might go to the steam engine museum or the Martin guitar factory. I asked that "HALL-OF-FAME" guy that used to post here if he would see about setting up a lesson with Jim Rempe but he never responded.

TIA

Wally,

You're only a couple hours from me, but I'll be in Parsippany this weekend.

There was a decent room in Moosic(a few minutes up the highway). Nice room, with a bar, a few players that play in the "pit" and lots of space. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the tan table cloth. I forget the name of the place, but it's the only poolroom in that small town.

Eric,

It's called "The Arena". Jim Rempe was the house pro there. Is it still open?

I found a place in Scranton called Idle Hour Bowling Lanes. Their website says they have 14 Gold Crowns.

Too bad Wally, I was their a couple of weeks ago.
Timing is everything. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

BTW, the last I heard, the place Eric mentioned in Moosic is closed, but don't take my word for it.
Although I have never been there, Idle Hour Lanes has been their for many years.

Wally,

It's actually in Olyphant. You need to increase the search by distance to 20 miles from Scranton.

Wally,

Don't become the unwilling victim of an Amish drive-by sexual attack.

Arena Billiards was in an old grocery store, it was beautiful on the inside.
Bar, food and pro-shop. They did go under a while back.

Good Luck Barbara!!!!!

You may have missed this pic posted by ras314 in another thread, so I thought I'd put it here again.

This is the Justis case ras314 won by buying a single $10 raffle ticket in Vegas last month:

Sorry I can't make it. Scranton's about 2 hours from me. I will be coming your way at the end of July. I will be on vacation in Louisville visiting my sis-in-laws. One guy amongst 10 cackling women. God help me!

DG - Bowling Green is a definite stop while in KY
