The Billiard Education Fund
We’re fortunate enough to become a part of the BEF Sponsorship Family which includes companies like Simonis, Aramith, Predator Cues by Poison, and Falcon Cues. We encourage anyone interested in giving back to the community to donate to the BEF. They host events like the Jr. State championships, Jr. National 9-Ball Championships, Jr. World Championships, and Challenge the Stars. Check out there site to learn about all of the amazing things that are happening in the pool and billiard community!
Get Your Kids Involved!
Parents can learn about getting their children involved as well. Starting kids off at a young age fosters a long-lasting passion for cue sports.
Events like Challenge the Stars even lets them play against top world and junior championship players, something many kids used to dream of! Last year, Jennifer Barreta, Shane VanBoening, Dennis Orcullo, and Jason “The Michigan Kid” Lynch were among the long list of players who showed up to enjoy a night of fun with up and coming stars!
So this month, make sure you pick up a copy of Pool & Billiard Magazine and flip to page 24! We thank P&B Magazine and the BEF for all of their support!
