    WWYD-in this tough spot.

    If at the table I felt I could bunt to the bottom rail off the ball I am up against, and get back behind those balls, that would be my first choice. If the angle didn't look right for that I would not hesitate to take a scratch there, to protect my position. In doing that I would nudge the cue...

    State Challenge/National Winner

    Something could work for sure. As I read what was proposed, basically two members play and the winner gets their 50 back, with the other 50 going toward the final round. Some states may have zero or one player. Maybe if only one, they have to compete vs any nearby state that has at least one, so...

    What's everybody doing within or outside of the parameters of our lockdown?
