Definitely wishing for (and EXPECTING) good things for Karla! Hopefully she has had some time to digest the tapes of our lessons together, and it will help make a difference in her latest appearance in The Big Show! Best of luck Karla!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement! As you probably saw in the brackets, I didn't do too well. But I had a GREAT time, got to see some old friends and make some new ones. It was great to see Jerry and his wife again... I can't say enough nice things about them. And Carol Clark always looks terrific and is one of those people everyone feels fortunate to have met. I also had the pleasure of officially meeting Fran finally! And I got Jean Balukas' autograph! Can't wait to do it again, although I have no idea when that might be possible.

Thanks again!

KARLA is being too modist. Because of her newly opened business, she has devoted all of her time to making it a success & hasn't played,but a couple of games, in the last few months. When she got the call, to play in the WPBA spring tournament in Peoria, she jumped at the chance. With only a weeks practice time under her belt she played Alice Rim(the # 30 ranked professional player) & lost 9-7. The score was 8-7 & Karla was in the process of running out to make the score 8-8 when she left the 8 ball hanging in the pocket & an easy 9. I'd say that if the 8 goes & with the score tied she probably would have won. KARLA YOU PLAYED WELL, BOTH OFFENSIVELY & DEFENSIVELY. BLACK HEART CUSTOM CUES IS PROUD OF YOU...Jerry & Connie Eick (BLACK HEART)

Karla is being too modest. I saw her second match on Saturday and she played with a lot of heart against a very strong player on the tour. She had a good chance in the match and things hinged on a couple of nine balls on the break that went against her. Otherwise, it might have been another story all together.
