—  Pool: We need expertise in repair of some well used cue sticks; or if you have some gently used cues, we could use them. Join us in practice for weekly free open pool tournaments. Players should be 50 years young or more, (younger if supervised by a parent or grandparent).  Pool playing is free with no entry fee. The rules are to play nice and insure fun and by player preference. Call the center or come on down and practice with a friend. Organized weekly pool games would start in February. Practice playing pool from 8-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-3 p.m. on most week days.
