I just uploaded a video to YouTube that contains images from the 1986 Clyde Childress Memorial Pool Tournament. My first effort at doing one of these featured photos taken at the 1982 Dayton Open, Earl Stricklandís first big win ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu-4gKhaBzY ). This latest effort was inspired by the sadness I sometimes feel when thinking back about old tournaments and old players. Old timers will recognize most of the faces, but I have captioned them just in case. And most will recognize players who are no longer with us such as Cornbread Red, Steve Mizerak, Jay Swanson, and Gary Speath. Anyway, I have fiddled with the thing most of the day and finally decided to go ahead and upload it before I went any crazier than I already am. Itís yours to enjoy, and I hope you do so a time or two.

Hi!
Nice piece of work/art. Who is the author of the music? I heard this song first about a week ago when I watched the trailer for the xbox360 game "Gears of war" (one of the best trailer ever if you ask me) and I still wonder who the author is. These players were legengs during their lifes and still are even when they passed away. It is good to remember those who deserve it. Again good work! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

marek, the song is "Mad World" and the person singing is Sara Hickman. That ad for the XBox got my attention too and it's what gave me the idea for using that song for the slide show. For more on that song, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mad_World_(song)

Great Job, Bill. I wish we had you in the Northeast filming during that era.
