Everyone,

Congratulations to stop # 12 winners Nelson Oliveira ($1,000, main event), Jeff Smolen ($320, second chance event) & Melissa LaTour ($1,500 Joss Cue raffle winner)

Stop # 13 will take place on March 18 & 19 at our newest host room, King Smiley Billiards in Fort Edward NY (near Glens Falls NY). Owner Adam Devoe deserves much thanks for his generosity in hosting our $1,500/$500 added  event. The best way to show your support is to come out and play or just watch another great 9-ball event. King Smiley Billiards is yet another full service room complete with both 9 foot and 7 foot tables, darts, a beer and wine bar and a pub food style menu. Fun can be had for all ages at King Smiley Billiards. Check them out here at: www.kingsmileybilliards.com 

As always, we will be raffling off a beautiful custom engraved Joss Cue at King Smiley's. Anyone can participate and you do not have to be present to win. We will draw for the cue just prior to the final match on Sunday. This gorgeous cue valued at $1,500 can be seen here: https://josscues.com/joss-northeast-9-ball-tour-2016-17/ 

For those needing motel accommodations, the Landmark Motor Inn is just a couple miles away. Call them at 518-793-3441 and mention King Smiley's tournament. There is even a 9 foot Gold Crown in the lobby!!
 

This event at King Smiley Billiards will consist of a $1500 added Saturday and Sunday Main Event (entry Fee $120 for pro level or $70 for non pro level) and a $500 added consolation event on Sunday ($20 Entry Fee) for those non pro level players eliminated from the main event on Saturday.

For those of you coming to play, please arrive on Saturday March 18, BEFORE 11:30 AM, and in proper dress please. Yes, jeans and sneakers are permitted in our billiard parlor events. But please, no T-shirts, tanks, shorts or sweats. Complete tour info can be found on our site www.joss9balltour.com  

A reminder that stop # 14 will now be at Hippo's The House Of Billiards on April 8 & 9, 2017, due to the fire at Salt City Billiards. 

Our season finale, the $25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XXVIII 9-Ball Open, is scheduled for August 31 - September 3, 2017. I am currently accepting entries and strongly suggest that you pay your entry early to avoid being shut out. Entry fee for this prestigious WPA, BCA and Mosconi Cup ranking event is only $150 for Current tour members and only $200 for all others. As you can see, membership has its privileges! If you would like to enter, please contact Mike Zuglan at 518-356-7163 or see me at any of our Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour regular season events before it is full. Currently we are already over 2/3 full and it is still only March!

Finally, I can't stress enough how important it is for all of you to please frequent your local billiard parlors and utilize the services and products of our most generous sponsors who are the backbone of our sport. These are the ones who keep our sport alive. So get out and play! 
 
I hope to see you all at King Smiley's.
