Congratulations to our Turning Stone Classic XXXII 9-Ball Open Champion, Shane Van Boening ($8,000), & our second chance winner Steve Fleming ($400). Also, to both of our $1,500 custom, engraved Joss Cue raffle winners, Scott Brown & D. Nixon as well as our autographed Aramith Pro Cup cue ball used in the final match winner Bill Keymel.
Now it's time for our Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour's 23nd continuous regular season of events beginning on September 21 & 22 with "The Main Event XIII" at TJ's Classic Billiards in beautiful Waterville Maine. TJ's owners Steve Reynolds and Steve Claude are most deserving of our thanks for not only adding $2,000 to our event, but also allowing us the use of their beautiful room for the weekend. Why not show your thanks by coming to TJ's to participate in or just watch this great event, and also take a chance at winning a beautiful custom, engraved, collectible Joss Cue valued at $1,600! You don't even need to be present to win!! Also while at TJ's you can enjoy some great home cooked specials and a beer or two if you like. For additional info about TJ's please call them at 207-877-7665, and check out TJ's Classic Billiards on Facebook.
