A former pool player is in need

I know with Christmas around the corner money is tight for most people. One of our former league players is in need of help.

David Tessier was a member in our fun league for years. He was always a joy to play against and whenever you played against him you would always end up with a smile on your face even if you lost.
Unfortunately he is battling a disease that doesn’t care who you are or how old you are it will always try and win. A go fund me was created to try and help raise money so they can afford this next treatment.
I have included an excerpt from the Go Fund me page explaining it a little more. I will also include the go fund me link for anyone that has a few extra dollars they can afford.

“Dave has tried every clinical trial available to him and currently the only option we have is to self-fund a treatment. Although this option is overwhelming, we’re grateful to have it. He has a fantastic oncologist who specializes in sarcoma and is extremely knowledgeable. The drug combination he’s recommending is one we feel confident about and it’s giving us hope again. However, it comes with a very large price tag. One of the drugs costs $6,000 per dose and the other is $12,000 per dose. Based on the proposed treatment schedule a year of treatment will cost $150,000 – and that’s just the cost of the drugs, not travel or other related expenses. This treatment is not funded by the government or our other health plans.”

So if you can spare any change at all, it would go to helping a great man, father, husband try and battle this stupid disease.

Players asking question during game

There has been no rule changes period. In particular pertaining to coaching of players during a game.
The rule states under Courtesy Rules:

Players may ask a team member for advice only ONCE per game.

So that means the player must ask someone for help, it doesn’t mean someone can start telling the person what to do.
If there are any issues please text someone from the executive or email in. If you see someone from the executive is not currently playing you may ask them as well.

Rule Changes and Captains Meeting

Hi Everyone

We hope this email finds you safe and well. Thank you for the great start to the year. Recently we have been approached about some potential rule changes. We want to thank the individuals who brought those forward for consideration. However, as we are already well into the season, we will not be making any rule changes that will affect this year. It was also brought to our attention that some players believe there is a captains ‘ meeting scheduled for December. While we appreciate your enthusiasm, we do not have any such meeting scheduled at this time. As we move forward through the year, we encourage you to keep track of ideas and changes you would like to make. Elections for the executive are coming up in the spring and that would be a great time to consider and implement change.

Thank you for your time.

Kingston 8 Ball Executive

Top portion of Pool Cue

At the end of season tournament “Bone’s” top portion of his cue was possibly picked up by someone else as he has to top portion that belongs to someone else. He plays with a 12.5 pool tip and the cue he picked up accidentally has a snooker tip. He would easily recognize his cue as it has a large rounded tip and there is also an engraving on it that reads “Phil Miley” the person he bought the cue from. He would like to regain his cue as I am sure you would prefer to have yours back also. Please check your cue and if you notice it is different than you recognize please email into the website so we can make sure both get swapped back to the original owners.
