Joss Northeast Tour Set To Begin 15th Season

I am proud to announce the complete schedule for our Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour's 2011-2012 season. This will be the tour's 15th continuous season in operation. During that time we have produced over 300 events including 16, soon to be 17, of the very popular Turning Stone Classic events. Other previous major events on the tour were 2, $25,000 added season finales in Portland Maine and 2 $15,000 added finales in Chelmsford & New Bedford Ma. There were also hundreds of great events in some of the Northeast's (and beyond) finest billiard parlors. These are the backbone of our tour and the sport itself. Without these rooms generosity and support our sport would be non existent to say the least. They deserve our gratitude and thanks for allowing us the use of their fine rooms.
This coming season will consist of 15 regular season events and the $25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XVIII (December 15-18, 2011). This season we welcome 3 new rooms to the tour. These new rooms include, Premium Billiards in Syracuse NY (stop # 1), Camelot Billiards in Rochester NY (stop #  4) and Fast Eddie's Billiards Cafe in New Milford Ct (stop # 8). The new season will also include 3 events at Snookers in Providence RI. Two events at Trick Shot Billiards And Sports Pub in Clifton Park (near Albany) NY. Two events at Raxx Pool Room & Grill in W. Hempstead NY. Single event rooms include TJ's Classic Billiards (Waterville Me), Hippos' House Of Billiards (Utica NY), Diamond Eight Billiards (Latham, near Albany NY), Salt City Billiards (Syracuse NY) & the Golden Cue Billiards (Albany NY). With the exception of our Turning Stone Classic XVIII and The 23rd Ocean State 9-Ball Championship at Snookers, all of our events will include an open Saturday and Sunday main event plus a $500 added Sunday only consolation event for non pro level players eliminated from the main event. For all info regarding any of our events including entry fees, added monies, formats, host locations, tour membership, results, etc., please visit us at or contact Mike Zuglan at or call 518-356-7163.
This season we welcome a new sponsor to the tour. Dan Heidrich of Heidrich Custom Cues has joined our family of most generous sponsors. Not only is Dan fast becoming a great cue maker, he is also a great player and past winner on our tour. Below you will find a complete list, with contact info, of our new season sponsors. All of their donated products go to the host rooms to help offset their added money obligations. I urge you to support and recommend these generous companies whenever you can. A very special thanks goes out to Dan Janes of Joss Cues for all he has done since the beginning. FYI, Dan has donated one, sometimes two, $1,000 range custom, engraved cues to each and every stop since the beginning of the tour. That is over 300 cues! You do the math. Thanks again to Dan and all of our sponsors from all of us.
Just a reminder that the current season is not quite over yet. We still have our 25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XVII 9-Ball Open, September 8-11, 2011. This event will once again feature 128 of some of the finest players in the game. It will be held in one of the best venues (The Event Center at Turning Stone) you will ever find, and spectator admission will once again be FREE!
I will see you all soon, and please remember to spread the word to frequent your local billiard rooms and utilize the great companies who continue to help keep our great sport alive!   Mike Zuglan
