" Here's an exciting break from March Madness for sports minded people in Virginia.  Allison Fisher and Charlie Williams will offer entertaining insights and instructions to players of all levels at the Predator Pro Challenge & School.  On behalf of Predator Group, thank you Allison, Charlie, Guys & Dolls and the sponsors for making this fun, fan-oriented event happen.  As always, we're excited to see people having a great time playing pool and we know this event will create some great memories", said John Forrester, Chairman of Predator Group

John Joplin, the owner of Guys & Dolls Billiards, owned his first poolroom in 1966, and he has been in this business ever since.  Guys & Dolls Billiards is one of the last remaining classic American poolrooms.  No alcohol and drunk bangers here, just serious pool.  This place has risen generations of strong pool players over its time and is still flourishing.  There has been so much history in America from poolrooms like these, and we're hoping to see continuing traditions and hear more from Guys & Dolls Billiards in the future decades to come.

 “I just want people to come and enjoy pool, have fun.  Here, I get to take part in showing players a glimpse of the world of professional pool” , said Joplin. He adds “I'm an antique.  Been here for a long time.  I've been here to raise some good players, see their children start playing with their family, and even see their children's children playing!  hahaha (laughs out loud)  ...and I want to know it will keep going on.”
 “John has been a strong supporter of Dragon Promotions for several years, now.  Not only is he an adept entrepreneur, but also he is a wonderfully humble character who is exceedingly generous to the community he is serving.  He has two world-class champion pros showing up at his pool hall, and he's not worried at all about charging anyone to come and see the show!  He's doing this for more than just tangible reasons. It's something we hope inspires more room owners nationwide to bring the fun of pool back into the spotlight", says Joe Lee of Dragon Promotions Player Management.
