As well as sponsoring four terrific players, we also sponsor our own threeman
8 ball team, the Crown Cuesaders, in the in-house BCA pool league down at the Q-Spot, in Tulsa, OK. Since we are two of the three members, we wouldn’t find this information to be enough reason to bring to your attention, except we have a terrific young man on our team who is a very good player and we are also quite proud of. Josh Smallwood is only 19, but he’s a force to be reckoned with in a serious game. He loves 9 Ball, 8 Ball, One Pocket and trick shots. One of his heroes is Tom “Dr. Cue” Rossman, who’s signature was on Josh’s cue for quite a few years, before it finally faded away. We took 2nd place in our most recent season, partly because of Josh’s skills at the table. Thank you, Josh! Good luck at the Black Gold BCAPL State Championship, this month, while we are at the Super Billiards Expo, in PA.
We believe we are sponsoring some of the best players around the globe!
Crown Cues is offering 15% off through the end of 2009! This great special applies to all cues, whether finished, in-progress, or custom orders. That’s $15 off every $100, which adds up FAST!
We’ve sponsored quite a few live streams in 2009. The goal is to help the live streams, such as OTBnTV or ontherailtv.com to remain free to the viewers. We want everyone to be able to watch pool tournaments on live stream, because not everyone can be there to watch their son, brother, friend, etc..
We were honored to be sponsors of two major streams, this year. One was the Olhausen 3 Cushion Open tournament, streamed by Steven Elzinga and the other was the Dr. Cue Classic Artistic Pool Cup III and Search for Cue-Dean-E, which was streamed by Ray Hansen of Cue & A Promotions. This was the very first artistic pool event ever to be streamed and it was a great success.
We plan to sponsor many other great streams in the future. Even when we’re not sponsoring, you can often find us in the chat room. So, keep an eye on the live streams. We’d also like to thank all the other sponsors of live streams. We could not win this battle alone. Remember to support the stream sponsors, so they can continue sponsoring the steams and keep them free for all to view.
