The Jerry Scott Rambow Cue


Jerry Scott is a long time subscriber to this blog, and recently sent me a few photos of the cue that legendary cue maker Herman Rambow built for him 54 years ago in 1962... for only 47 bucks! I can't imagine what that beauty is worth today. But playing with that great cue is priceless.

This is the first time I've even seen photos of the great cue maker's work, so I asked Jerry if I could share the photos here, and of course he said "Yes!".  Thanks Jerry!

My semi-private pool room just got lots better



I'm totally loving the 3 new 9' Diamond pro tables where I occasionally shoot pool. They replace a mismatched set of beat up tables that weren't regulation size... but I managed to win on them anyway (when my game was stronger).

These tables were just installed last week and are the gift of several of the players and a little donation from the county. I stopped by to check out the tables, and since this was the first time I've ever played on Diamond tables (1-piece slate!). They are Excellent, and since the pockets are a bit tighter than the previous ones, definitely more challenging, so I guess I have to up my game! 



Did I mention that table time is FREE!  Tough to beat that deal...



After I won the big quarterly tournament (on the old tables), I stopped competing and let the other guys get a shot at winning it.


Here's my little bit of immortality. A nice plaque on each table.
