For those of you who do not know this, Barbara runs the JPNEWT regional tour by herself-
Last weekend in Binghamton, we played the NYS Championship at Pocket Billiards-during the tournament, these news cameras came in and setup-they interviewed Barbara, Florence,Kim Shaw,Tiffany Nelson and Karen Corr-then the cameras scanned the room and got alot of players shooting! This was great exposure for pool and for Pocket Billiards-this is the first time I ever seen cameras at a REGIONAL event-I got back to my hotel room and at 11:00 pm-there it was, on the news!It was channel 12-WBNG and for 2 seconds, it caught me shooting-so Barb, if you get a copy of that tape, I want one for my 2 second claim to TV fame,ha ha ha ha
Way to go Barb!
Carol~can say "been there,done that!"ha ha ha /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Yeah Rich,
I thought it was pretty cool-Barbaras interview was to be aired on the Monday, so I didnt see that, but would have liked too!The cameras zoomed in on "Nostroke" ha ha ha,(which Im not sure he knows), while he was sweating matches!
But I missed seeing you and Cathy cause you guys are ALWAYS on TV! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Carol,

I got a call from the station this morning saying that my copy of the tape is ready, so I'll be sending out the check this afternoon when I get home.

BTW, the piece that was on at 11 pm was a DIFFERENT news station - there were TWO stations there that day!

That is too cool! I always thought that'd be a great thing for the local news to cover.

I've seen a few of our local news stations keep past newscasts on their web site - does either of the stations that did this happen to have it available on their web site so we can see it?

SPetty,

I haven't been to their website since before the piece aired.

The station doing my interview was channel 34 in Binghamton.

The station that caught Nostroke and Carol on tape was Channel 12.

Rich,
This section, where the screen was ,is like a section with seats ,where people sit and watch,I guess,horse racing or something, so all these guys were sitting in this section and I come walking by and see you and Cathy on the screen and yell, "Oh My God, its Cathy and Rich" ha ha ha ha, and they all turn around and look at me and I just say "Hello, thats my friend up there!" ha ha ha ha
Too funny!
Carol~miles away and Rich is still with me-surreal!:):):) /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I heard i was on but i didnt know they "zoomed in" on me.

I never even saw a camera. I might have been concentrating on a stretch shot by Jen at the time.

All i can figure is maybe they wanted to show there was someone under a hundred years old (barely) in the crowd!

They really should do an investigative piece and find out how someone can have squirrel looking brown hair on top, grey all along the sides and a jet black Hitler Moustache! There's a tape id want a copy of.

I'll see u in Arnold tomorrow around noon Carol.Im leavin Sat morning myself-Hotels too expensive to stay 2 nites im afraid. I spoke w Jeannie yesterday-She and GYK will be there.
