I am looking for someone to sponsor entry fee only (150.00) for the Joss Tour $25,000.00 Added Turning Stone tournament in August. I am looking for someone who wants to play but has not cashed in a Joss tournament in the past. If they are not already a member they will have to pay the $50.00 for the tour card and i will pay the $150.00 entry fee. I will have to emphasize that i am not looking for absolutely nothinh in return. I just picked one from AZ billiards forum and would like to pick someone from here. My home board..pm me if interested...Karen Corr Julie Kelly Jeanette Lee and Jennifer Baretta are playing. so this does not have to be a man....how about Carol Clark or Barbara. or Wendy or Fran Crimi...........mike

Thanks Rich! Unfortunately that weekend is tied up. My daughter turns the dreaded 16 years old and is planning some kind of party. Maybe I'll let Mrs. DG handle the party and I'll come up north and party.Yeah right.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Don't forget to put the big red ribbon on the Corvette. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Oh, I hope she doesn't read this. I don't want to spoil the surprise. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

She likes corvettes and also classic mustangs. She wants an old Mach 1. Something with speed,power, and goes Vroom Vroom real loud. I made the mistake of telling her about my hot rodding days of cruising and drag racing. She's had the fever since elementary school. In first grade, she knew the difference between a harley and a rice burner. I'm afraid I've created a monster. Oh well it could have been worse.

DG- promised to take her to the drag strip this year

If she likes the speed, you may have to find her a good roll model. Try this one.

Rich,
You're no help. I'm taking her to the drags this year and maybe this "role model" will be there. Sheesh, am I getting in trouble.

A bit of trouble, eh? Going up to "party" without your daughter and your loving, faithful wife? /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif And at Saratoga...WITHOUT US??!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

I had the winner of the Belmont to win on 3 tickets...and lost on all 3.

We went yesterday to an OTB facility to watch the Belmont as well. While my counterpart always handicaps, perusing the Racing Form, I bet a dollar-triple-box on family members' birthdays. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Yesterday, I had my daughter's birthday, my brother's birthday, my mom's birthday, my birthday, and my dad's birthday. My dad's birthday, I picked 8-9-11, dollar-triple-box, and as you know, it came in 8-9-2-11. Close, but no cigar! /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Interestingly, the crowds yesterday were skimpy, compared to the Preakness and Derby crowds.

We ended up about 400 bucks winner yesterday, though, a rarity in my experience of going to the races. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

On topic of the thread, Mike, I think you're an asset to the sport, making two players' dreams come true by giving away a free entry to the $25,000-added Joss Turning Stone Casino event. Bravo to you, and I'll see you there! /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

That was close. I have trouble picking one horse to win, let alone picking 4 in the right order. Oh well, it's only money, right? LOL

DG- no winning tickets-close but no cigar

Hi Duane, when our daughter ( middle child ) turned 16 she wanted a jeep, I got her one but I don't remember what color it was but I do remember it fit on top of her cake. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif, Terry

After a lot of begging from my daughter right before she became eligible to drive, I did give in and buy her a very nice used Mitsubishi Tredia. It was about 2 years old, and it still cost a lot, about 8 or 9 grand, if memory serves me right. Of course, 17 years ago, that was more money than I would have liked to have spent, but when I was with her at the car dealership, it was hard to say no.

After driving for only one month, she got into two accidents, fender benders, in the same day, a record I think for newbie drivers. I was very perplexed. One of them happened in a parking lot, her backing out and hitting somebody, and the other was on her way home. She ran into the back of a car at a red light. /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

When she got her first car, she seemed to gain quite a few friends, and everybody in her circle just wanted to ride around in her car, listening to music and venturing out into the wild blue yonder. She became instantly quite popular.

If I had it to do over again, I would have bought her a "humptee," I think is the term, a very CHEAP used automobile that wouldn't break my pocketbook. Newbie drivers sometimes can, and will, use poor judgment due to lack of skills behind a wheel.

When my daughter reached the age of 18, I immediately got her off my insurance policy and required that she get her own. Though she has never gotten into a serious accident or caused injury to others, doing this allowed me to sleep a whole lot easier, especially during the era when she was young and dumb. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Hi RailbirdJAM, I remember when my eldest daughter got her license at 16, she was out with the car with one of her friends across the street ( policemans daughter ). I came home and my wife said " you'll never guess who came to the door today", it was the police. Apparently someone called the cops because my daughter and friend was in an out of the way spot squealing the tires. My wife didn't want to give her the car again, but......, Terry

I told my daughter that if she wants a mustang, start saving your money. She's ready to start a separate savings account for the mustang. She's really a good kid, but definitely not ready for something like this.

I gotta give a big THANK YOU to VOODOO DADDY for even attempting to try to make this trip to turning stone casino. But unfortunately it just was not economically feasable at this time for him to come. Hopefully Steve can come to their next one. I would also be proud to help him out on that trip also. Just alot more than i can at present. Steve, you are a true gentleman of the highest standard and i will see you some where down the road my friend................mike

Sorry, I was a little behind on this one. Steve, you're a fighter, you would have done yourself proud no matter what the result. I certainly respect your decision not to play.

Mike, you are a kind and generous man for making the offer.
