I love a challenge, so if you like to shoot pool or throw darts come up and say hi! I also run a pool tournament every Tuesday at 7pm, BCA rules, double elimination, and $5 buy-in. It's great time with a lot of great guys and players. During the warmer months I love to get out and ride on my Harley.
