To those in the DFW area...John McChesney is a "class act", CJ's is a great room (IMHO) and Roger G.? Well, he was well respected by some in Arizona and hated by others (those whose wallet Roger helped to "lighten") when he lived there.

I met John a few weeks ago at Hawley's and not only is he a helluva player, he is a gentleman and very excited about the chance to promote these tourneys.

If I can "donate" my $50.00 to get this off the ground, I hope you can too.

Regards,

Ken ("donates" so much money to pool tournament prize funds, he is second only to the "United Way" in dollars raised for causes other than his own)

John,

I met both of them (I think) at an Open 9-ball tourney at Kolby's. Him: Tall, carrying a Jack Justis case. Her: Cute, playing with a McDermott "D" series cue. Both of them can play. I saw them again on my last day in Phoenix, tooling down the road in their truck, still bearing Texas plates.

Sound like them?

Regards,

Ken
