Master of Ceremonies – Tom “Dr. Cue” Rossman

On April 15, 2016, a very special event took place at the Super Billiards Expo in the 3 – Cushion arena before a standing room only audience. Over a dozen juniors (18 years of age and younger) participated in a unique “lag challenge” on the two beautiful Gabriel billiard (carom) tables. There was no charge to take the challenge and each player was presented with one or more billiard gloves valued from $8.00 to $24.00 each (donated by IBS).



After taking the challenge, each player was given a “once in a lifetime” opportunity to receive “free” clinic lessons from two National Champions of the “carom art” – Hugo Patino (current) and Mazin Shooni. Learning the basics of the “no pocket” game and taking the 3 – Cushion Lag Challenge was a hit “combo,” establishing a foundation of enhanced cue sport skills for our youth while providing special moments in billiard history to last a lifetime for all in attendance.
