Billiards Club leaders share their knowledge

The Billiards Club partnered with the Center for Campus Involvement on March 27 to provide one-on-one instruction for interested students on the subject of billiards.  This was one of a series of "Savvy Workshops" offered by CCI throughout the year, ranging from bike repair to dessert design.  

Top players in the club volunteered their time to impart pool wisdom to beginners, some of whom opted to join the Billiards Club afterwards.

UMTPC Break Contest

The Break contest was discontinued in 2010.

If time permits, there will be a Break Contest strictly for fun. No bonus points or medals will be awarded - just bragging rights.
