“Pool Players & Fans,  Congratulations to our previous event winners at Salt City Billiards, Bucky Souvanthong ($1,000 main event), Jose Mendez ($330 second chance) & Derrick Beckwith ($1,700 Joss Cue Raffle Winner)

“Our final regular season stop of the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour will take place on June 4 & 5 at Snookers Billiards Bar & Grill in Providence RI. This will once again be our third event at Snookers this season and we all owe owners Regina & Steve Goulding many thanks for their continued generous support. With this $2,000 added they have again added a total of $10,000 to our events this season. Thanks again from all of us! All that remains of the current season is our season finale, The $25,000 Added, Turning Stone Classic XXVI 9-Ball Open, August 25-28, 2016. FYI, our next Turning Stone event will be January 5-8, 2017. I will begin taking entries for that event at the August event.

“Snookers is one of the premier rooms in the United States. They were TWICE named the #1 room in the country by Billiards Digest Magazine! Snookers comes complete with 15  Gold Crowns covered in 860 Simonis (The Cloth Of Champions), is a world class sports bar, and has some of the best food in RI which is evident by the usual large crowds. So why not come to Snookers to play or watch, have a great meal and show your support to those who most generously keep supporting us. You might even win a custom engraved Joss Cue valued at  $1,700 in Snookers cue raffle. The cue drawing will take place immediately before the final match on Sunday and, as always, you do not have to be present to win!! This gorgeous cue can be viewed here:               

“This event at Snookers will consist of a $1500 added Saturday and Sunday Main Event (entry Fee $120 for pro level or $70 for non pro level) and a $500 added consolation event on Sunday ($20 Entry Fee) for those non pro players eliminated from the main event on Saturday.

“For those of you coming to play, please arrive on Saturday June 4 Before Noon, and in proper dress please. Yes, jeans and sneakers are permitted in our billiard parlor events. But please, no T-shirts, tanks, shorts or sweats. Complete tour info can be found on our site

“I am 99% finished scheduling for our 2016-2017 (Our 20th!) season. So if you know of, or own a Billiard Parlor here in the Northeast that may like to hold one of our events, Please contact me NOW at 518-356-7163. Potential sponsors who would like year round exposure of their products are also urged to do the same. I will be finalizing the schedule in less than a week so it is important to contact me now.

“Once again I ask all of you to please frequent your local billiard parlors and utilize the services of our most generous sponsors who are the backbone of our sport. Thank You & I hope to see all of you Snookers.

Mike Zuglan”
