Congratulations to our 29th Ocean States 9-Ball Champion Alex Kazakis ($2,600) & our $1,200 Joss Cue raffle winner Rich Howard
 
Stop # 6 of my Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour's 21st season will be at Union Station Billiards in Portland Maine on Nov. 18 & 19. This will be the first of two stops at the Station this season, with the second taking place on April 7 & 8, 2018. Owners Mary and Phil Harju are our most generous hosts for what promises to be another great event and deserve our sincere thanks for allowing us the use of their beautiful room. Union Station Billiards boasts 16 Gold Crowns, all covered in 860 Simonis (The Cloth Of Champions) which will allow us to move swiftly throughout the weekend. They also have a pub style restaurant with great food, a full bar, ping pong, foosball, air hockey and video games. So lets show the Harjus a big Joss Tour welcome by coming up to play or just watch what promises to be yet another great 9-ball event. You could even win a $1,200 custom engraved Joss Cue in the raffle. Anyone can participate and you do not have to be present to win. The drawing for the cue will be on Sunday just before the final match of the main event. For more information about Union Station Billiards, check them out on Facebook or call them at 207-899-3693. The raffle cue can be seen here:  https://josscues.com/cues/custom/joss-custom-26/
