“Stop # 8 of the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour’s 20th season will be at Union Station Billiards in Portland Maine on Nov. 19 & 20. This will be the first of two stops at the Station this season, with the second taking place on April 29 & 30, 2017. Owners Mary and Phil Harju are our most generous hosts for what promises to be another great event and deserve our thanks for hosting our tournament. 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 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 $1,500 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.
