The Table's New Home



My treasured Gold Crown IV is now enjoying life at a young and energetic tech company here in San Diego (Web Shop Manager, e-commerce websites), providing lots of fun breaks from the challenges of a fast-growing company.  Below is the nice Thank You card that arrived in today's mail:



Notice that I am *lending* it to them.  The reason is that it was a gift to me, so I would feel bad selling it, and who knows, maybe someday my neck will get better and I'll want it back, but that's unlikely. Meanwhile, it's on long term loan.

Good for you! Great looking table! We just acquired one too and I can't get enough of it! It's amazing how many kids have never played pool!!! Enjoy!

the reason your neck hurts is because you are enhancing the amount of bulge and thereby inflammation each time you shoot BECAUSE YOU SHOOT POOL WITH EYEGLASSES. Use contact lenses or get eye surgery and the amount you have to extend your cervical spine will be decreased greatly by comparison. It may look like only 5-10 degrees but it will make all the difference in terms of your pain. I tried to find you on facebook to tell you this. Good Luck Mikie. I've enjoyed your videos and posts very much. You shouldn't quit over that. Lastly, if that fails there is always surgery. Once your spine is fused you won't be able to extend your neck the way you currently do anyway, which means you won't see well with glasses (you'll be looking over the rim) so you'll be forced to use contacts anyway. Bottom line is USE CONTACTS. good luck buddy.

Luis...

Thanks for the info. Much appreciated!
Although the surgery is scary, I just may go for it.

All the best,

Mikie

Sir,

I have a custom Runde cue in my possession and am looking to sell. Has a bit of cosmetic blemishes, as well as a slightly cracked ferrel.
Any advice on where interested buyers would be located? Any help or leads would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,
Julia

I think you could find a buyer on AZbilliards.com

Best of luck,

Mike

That's really nice of you, Mike. Here's hoping your neck recovers soon. I've just begun the hunt for pool tables in Calgary. Hopefully I can find something nice near my new place.

I would wonder if a table tennis table conversion top can be place on this pool table if I want to play ping pong as well but am having limited room space to accommodate two tables.
