    Downtown Denver 50's 60's & 70's Elder Black player

    I just can't remember his name. Was from the WWII generation. A Very pleasant man, who always dressed sharp, and played at a different level in all games with the locals at 38th & Sheridan. He wore a hat and always in a nice jacket and pants....very pleasant in nature. If I heard his name...

    Caddie Tournament W Member

    Here's an idea/thought to create new players and interest. Have each member in good standing bring a new player to an event, and have the experienced player tell them what to shoot and Why. Be a great way to get Sparks involved. Similar to what W the caddies do in Pro Golf events.

    One Pocket/8 ball

    I've been using the one pocket thought process allot more in 8 ball this past weekend. It makes one realize, how difficult/important good table management is when one plays 8 ball on a tight 7' bar table (it's actually a great game because of this aspect). It' similar in thought process to one...

    One Pocket Event/Side Bar Banks/Full Rack????

    Might be an interesting sidebar game to have at one of our events. Dbl elim. one rack bank game, first to 8 moves on. If you make a bank and scratch you don't owe an additional ball, just spot it up....BIH in the kitchen. A normal scratch won't count against you, just gives opponent BIH...
