Cheers sapphire. She is right rheo.
I booked 2 pool tables already under my name (will put it here on Thur evening or I might just send PMs to the ones who said they're coming), that are near some chairs and tables for people to sit who are taking a break or are not playing. I guess if the people are more we can take turn ay?
I certainly would like to sit in the middle near the bar to listen to the band and admire the furniture in one point.
The below is the bar's website, you can find the phone number, addy and map of the place:

Considering there are people who implied to be cheerleaders without playing the pool I guess? I was wondering if everybody would just share the cost of the pool tables which should be sort of settled now to avoid a headache tomorrow...

No headache at all, we're meeting to play pool. Cost will be split among all those who show up.

Agree with Sapphire, just split cost etc.

Just realise it's going to be that American pool not UK pool :???: Well that's the excuse I'm going to use if I lose :lol:

Unfortunately you're right Saint, they are American pool tables. I always struggle on these too, just ask Carpe Diem :P

Also no idea what the 'official' rules are here, they seem to differ depending on who you play against :???: but I'm sure some will be posted at the venue.

Also I was thinking as a suggestion - if we have 2 tables and quite a few people we could play conventional pool on one table (either singles or doubles), and play "Killer Pool" on the other :shooting:

Rules are dead simple, everyone starts with 3 'lives' and take it in turns to visit the table to pot a ball, any ball. Everytime you miss a pot you lose a life. Winner is the last one left at the table. Usually great fun, and for beginners you can have a handicap system for example and give them an extra couple of lives or so to make it more fun for them.

The good thing about killer pool is that any number of people can play, you can make it more interesting by everyone putting in say $1 or 50c (winner to take all).

Anyway, just a suggestion, and we can see what people want to do when we arrive.
What's worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care
