On Friday, November 18th, well over two hundred professional and amateur billiards players, celebrity VIP's, New York City media and fans gathered at Union Square's upscale billiards club, Amsterdam Billiards to celebrate the release of the Rack Starz 2012-2013 Limited-Edition Collector Series Calendar.

Kicking off the event was a comprehensive press schedule, which consisted of interviews with the likes of NBC Sports; ESPN; Bleacher Report and numerous online outlets followed by a photo shoot for the front cover of Stroke Magazine, which hits newsstands in December. After the press interviews wrapped up, the Rack Starz hit the red carpet for their arrival introduction. Wire Images photographer, Gary Gershoff made sure to capture each moment as the ladies walked into their event. 

As guests arrived, each person was presented with a gift bag and given the option to purchase the 2012-2013 Limited-Edition Collector Series Calendar. Guest enjoyed an assortment of freshly prepared hor d'oeuvres (served on a center billiard table, buffet-style), complimentary Budweiser beer, and/or 901 Tequila cocktails and mingled amongst each other. The Rack Starz posed for pictures and autographed calendars to enthusiastic fans.

Around 7:45pm, our moderator for the evening, Tony Robles:  Reigning Grand Master 8-ball Champion announced organized exhibitions in the center ring for the ladies to showcase their talents. While a few of the ladies were perfecting their trick shots, other Rack Starz were challenging VIPs to a game of pool. 

Before the party ended at 10:00pm, Robles extended his appreciation to everyone for coming, as well as everyone behind the scenes at Rack Starz for making this event a huge success.

People enjoyed their time, as reflected by the positive feedback by guests. "Not really knowing much about the billiards industry, I wasn't sure what to expect. When I arrived, the enthusiasm and kindness from all the ladies, plus their amazing talents on the table blew me away. These Rack Starz are impressive and I am excited to see what's next." says Tiffany Landon, Fashion Designer.  "The Rack Starz calendar launch was so such fun; I met some talented women and even learned a few trick shots. I can't wait to show all my friends my new skills on my own pool table. Next time the party is at my house!" continues Actress, Crystal Hunt.
