Howdy,

As you may have heard, PettyPoint Pool Hall is featured in this month's October issue of Billiards Digest magazine. (It even shows up on the cover as: "CASE STUDY: Build a Great Game Room for Less")!

Billiards Digest magazine had some type of abnormal printing snafu this month, and as a consequence, has NO extra copies of the magazine to sell to me. They did send me a few comp copies, but we can't even get enough to give copies to our families. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Although they did give me permission to copy and distribute the article itself, it isn't nearly as impressive I think, as seeing it in the context of the entire magazine.

So I'm asking for your help. If you know of a place that sells Billiards Digest magazine and you can buy one or more copies to send to me, please help me. I will gladly pay for the magazines and postage and even for your time if you want. I can pay via PayPal or send you a check.

Billiards Digest's web site shows that CJ's is the only place in Dallas that sells the magazine, but when I called CJ's yesterday, they sounded awfully confused and told me that they don't sell it there.

If anyone can help me, please send me a PM or email.

Thanks!

The issue was an advance sellout, I believe, after news of the featured article about your room leaked out.
Copies can now only be obtained at a premium, from unauthorized dealers. At the next sporting event, baseball, football,nude mud wrestling, etc....find the nearest scalper...he may have copies hidden inside his coat.

SPetty, I'm going to meet up with nAzee on Thursday at Hall of Fame Billiards (Jean Balukas' place). They usually have the mag there and if they have the latest issue, I will buy all of them for you--at least 10 copies right? They sell them there for $4 each. I'll call you when I get there and you can let me know what you need should they have them.

Spetty,

I'll check with the Montgomery place I'm told usually has them each month. I'll scarf up anything they have within reason. I just have to keep one for myself.

SPetty...As promised, I am also "on the hunt" for extra copies to send you. I believe you said you wanted 25 copies, if you could get them! Workin' on it, as we speak!

I'm looking forward to collecting on our little wager! /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

But I'm looking forward to it even more if I have to pay up! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
