Womens Pool League Play-offs Schedule
April 17, 2013
Start time: 7:30pm with minimum of 6 players. 8 players by 7:45pm. No add-ons after 8pm.

Today ... right now ... another beautiful day ... about 16 women began their day as home-makers, wives, girlfriends, employees, owners, Moms, friends ... and around 6:30pm they'll start taking on a different posture: (non lethal) gladiator-like ... at 7:30pm tonight the sound of balls snicking against one another ... cue up your mental music: Eye of the Tiger, Theme from JAWS, long drawn out drum roll ... this is it! Be at Hazel Manor tonight for the final showdown! Breaker's vs Hazel Manor ... all the teams in the league are great teams! But only two can end up here, on this night, and only one will get that last 8-ball ...

Good luck to both

Don't mix bad words with your bad mood. You'll have many opportunities to change a mood, but you'll never get the opportunity to replace the words you spoke.

Here's an uplifting message from
Just wanted to stop and say thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket from Stacey Harper at the womens pool banquet. The donation was greatly appreciated in a time of need.
UPDATE on how I'm feeling: I'm doing well, drains have been removed, another surgery the end of the month to have the drain inside removed and back to work beginning of July. Resting and recovering until then. Thank you again for keeping me in your the thoughts and prayers.

And a message from Denise:
I found a black zip up hoodie with an 8 ball on it laying on the ground.
Get back to me so it can be returned to you.
