To all my friends on the CCB:

For those of you who will be attending the Super Billiards Expo in Valley Forge this year, how many would be interesting in getting together for some "Cocktails & Conversation" at the Scanticon?

On the main level, right off the lobby area, is a cocktail lounge / bar near the restaurants. Let's make it a point, for those of us who will be there, to get together in the evenings for some pleasant company, conversation and of course, "Cocktails"!

Dr. D, sounds like a good idea as long as it's late. Some of the best matches are always Friday and Saturday nights. Problem is, even during the short intermission between the afternoon and evening sessions one has to get in line early in order to get their pick of the seating once they do start letting us in!

Dr. D, I'm still holding out for a miracle for everyone's sake - and that it's not too late for apologies to be made and cooler, smarter heads to prevail. Hopefully things can be worked out that would allow for your return to your WPBA board position ASAP. If a mediator is needed, I'll gladly volunteer! If not to be, life will go on for all of us. - Chris in NC

Watching pool makes one very thirsty and I've been known to have a drink once in a while. I will be looking for you. Rich R.

John, I think most of the Junior matches are during the daytime, so you should be free at night to watch the pros play. As far as the level of competition in your division (15-18) - I'd say there's a large discrepancy in skill level among the 60-70 total players in the field, but that the top players are VERY tough. Upsets are however more likely to happen in this format which makes it very hard for the top players to win - since the tables are small, short races and it's single elimination. Play great, and hopefully we'll see you there. - Chris in NC

Hi Jordan,

You posted "I went to eat at one of thoughs places".

I don't mean to get in your face here but Q-guy is right! Would you trust your cue to be repaired by a guy that spends so little attention to detail, to doing things right, that he spells "those", thoughs? Slow down and get it right the FIRST time or you ruin the cue.

Jordan, you've built a reputation of putting out sloopy work through the posts you've written here...but they have gotten better!

Now you MUST overcome that undesireable reputation with precision work. That's not a knock on you Jordan it's just the facts of life.

Regards, JimS.~much less than perfect but I'm not repairing others beloved cues!

One thing people don’t understand is that there are people out there that can’t read, but you bring your car to them to change the oil, or repair your drive shaft. I have had no complaints about cue repair, I try really hard to make no spelling errors in my posts, and I write them all in word, and still have to go through them for 10 minutes to take out the random letter that’s word puts in. I am 15 and type really fast, I was eating and watching TV this has nothing at all to do with my cue repair, I will try harder. I misspelled a word, sorry… (leave this post as is out of word to show you what happens, and then send you a better one below.)

Are there any programs that I can use to spell check in the CCB?

Try a handy little thing called a "dictionary", you might be surprised how many words are in there.

You remind me of my son when asked for a calculator when he was 14-15. I told him there was plenty of time in the future for calculator use but only one time (now) for his brain to learn HOW to do the Math. He is now a PhD Physicist and he thanks me.

Jim...Sloopy? Undesireable? That's why I never try to correct anybody. It would always come back and bite me in the ass! /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif - Howie
