We have a new Billiards Buzz waiting for you on the newsstand. You can click “BUZZ” in the navigation bar at the top of our pages and that will take you to the newsstand where you can grab the latest issue of the Buzz or read any of the past issues. They are all there. Also there are two old issues of the National Billiard News for you to enjoy. All for free for everyone.
Let us know what you think of this new Buzz. We have redone the format and are including more photos and graphics. Our text is more concise, so we are delivering our information in an easier and more graphic manner. Comments may be directed to Jerry@azbilliards.com. We would also like to know what additional content you might enjoy. Give us your ideas!
This month we give a bit of space to the rise of the youth in the professional arena, Several of our articles deal with that subject and we think things are looking up for the coming generation. See if you agree. Our slate of columnists are back to educate and entertain you and we even have an interview from Melinda Bailey with a man who was playing pool through the Great Depression and WWII and is still taking them down.
The pro side is well covered. Darren Appleton’s very successful Aramith Masters is our lead and we also cover the US Open Straight Pool Championships as well as taking you back fifteen years to the 2002 Mosconi Cup where the power shift first began to lean.
Make sure to visit the newsstand frequently. We are populating it with publications for you to enjoy at your leisure, publications that will help you with your game and give you insights in to how the game is presented in other parts of the country and world. So enjoy. And thank you for putting us on your reading list.
