Howdy,

While going through some old magazines last night, I rediscovered a bookmarked article about a video produced by the WPBA, called "Cue Up With WPBA Pros".

Has anyone seen it? Does anyone know where I can get a copy of that video?

The article mentions "Almost as a bonus you get to hear the top pros talking - some with the foreign accent of Austria, England, Sweden and New York." hahaha

The "foreign accent of ... New York"! hahaha /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Anyone have a copy of that video they'd like to sell?

I found it one place on-line - at Action Billiards (http://www.actionbilliards.com/instruction.html) . Anyone have any experience ordering from them?

Thanks!

SPetty,

IIRC, they shot a video of some WPBA Pros giving advice - how to do some shots, etc. I never purchased it. I also never heard anything terribly bad about it.

Maybe Fran can shed some light.

Susan,

You do not want to see this video. Pool Hall Junkies gives it the 4-ball.

You have to understand that this thing was produced before a lot of these girls became semi-famous. They mostly appear a bit awkward.

One former pro has a stance that rivals Ricky Schroeder's. You have to see where she puts her head to shoot. I have never seen anything like it. It is conceivable that her forehead and her cue are in different zip codes.

OH, you mean the one with the foreign, New York accent. LOL


~~~ rod, didn't know Fran had a foreign accent, or a New yawk accent. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I think the real New York accent on the tape comes from Nesli O'Hare.

Barbara, all I know is that it existed. I'm not involved in it and I haven't seen it.

I thought for sure that you were going to talk about the two day benefit tournament in Dallas, with A. Fisher invites to play her for a donation to the charity. I believe it's coming this weekend. You going???sid

Good morning:

You can try and contact the offices of the WPBA directly. If they have them, that is where you will find it.

If anyone's in the neighborhood, it's a good cause and a lot of fun.
