After being in the pool table business for 30 years this past November 2009, I shut down the pool table part and will only continue selling cues, balls, recovery cloth, and other accessories. When I was so young trying to survive, the business had taught me life's lessons, by introducing me to many friendly customers, supported my family financially when we needed it most, supplied me with long time loyal installers to the end, and gave me that special forced, working together nights, with my sons covering rails, unloading/loading pool tables and other work. Of course at that time, we were just trying to get it done and move on to other things for each of us, such as school work, and family responsibilities. Only now, do all of us see how precious those times were ( working side by side ), having those father/son talks. Therefore I want to thank God for all he has done in our lives, and all of you, who had some interaction with the business one time or another over the years. Also appreciation and thank you, to the Brunswick company who was loyal to me since 1981 and until the end. It was great to deal with a company that had the history that Brunswick has behind it and the people that we dealt with. Watching the company move many years ago from Marion VA., then to Fort Wayne, IN. for a while, and now for many years being finally settled in Bristol WI.. The employees were very knowledgeable, dependable ( certainly for my business ), and loyal to their company. I guess that is Integrity.
