If anyone is interested in putting a team together for the NE Challenge in July this year, I'd be happy to join a roster. :D
Pool is not my main game. But I am willing to try°
Looking for a SL 2or3 to join my team on Wednesday’s at trick shots in Clifton Park. It’s a double jeopardy league.
I am looking to either jump on a roster or put a team together for double jeopardy on BOTH Wednesdays and Sundays at Trick Shots....If anyone needs a skill level 5...I'm your girl. LOL
Masters Wk #2 Buzzo vs Moore at Towne Billiards 6:30 Friday Oct 11th.
Hello friends! A few weeks ago, my pool cue, case, glove (my beloved "Danny Glover"), etc. was stolen! I ordered a new pool cue and it should be here in a couple of days. Darlene was gracious enough to give me a glove that she doesn't use anymore, but what I don't have is a case. I'm not looking for anything fancy, but if there's anyone out there that has a cheap (or free!) case that I can have, I'd really appreciate it! Let me know! :)
Looking to jump on a roster...Sunday, Monday, or Wednesday for Spring session, if anyone has a spot for a 5 in 8ball let me know!
Looking for a Wednesday night team if anyone needs a player.
Anyone looking for someone for Wednesday night at trick shots ? I’m a 5 at 8ball and 4 at 9. Got replaced cause I been away working but can make the next four weeks. Let me know.
thanks for the pizza today
I am looking to jump on a team for the fall session. I am a 5 in both 8&9..if anyone has a spot...let me know..:D thanks!
Some pretty amazing pool last night. My first playoffs. I have no nails left, but it was lots of fun. 😊
