    I wonder if Frank has any info on the table I have? My table is the same table Bill Werbeniuk practiced on in Sheffield that was set up on an industrial estate where he lived on a bus on the site. I know this table has some stories within it......I'm just trying to unlock some!

    What a fantastic guy and a superb collection of cues which I found very distracting!

I remember her being a good potter and pretty quick too, so it was like a shootout great fun and we always loved a challenge. I really loved to just go for my shots and break build and use an occasional safety shot which I think aged my poor parents at the time. My dad would often ask me why I didn't play a particular safety shot but sometimes I just didn't see them which would drive him crazy lol, but on the other side of the coin he would be extremely happy when I got the pot and finished the game!! Don't know how he didn't have grey hair but managed to keep it black. I liked Karen and her parents were lovely too, our parents often sat together and passed the time while waiting for the next match.
    Sorry about rambling on but it was nice remembering good times.
    That's so cool, thanks and it's not rambling at all! It sounds like you and Karen were good pals if your parents sat together at tournaments. I had one coaching lesson with her at the Windmill Club in Rushden and she was lovely and had a very gentle approach which helped me relax and get the most out of the session but can you believe when I tried to book the next session she had stopped coaching because she was moving to America to play pool. No doubt it was something she had put a lot of thought in to and was probably considering at the time of our lesson.

    The old stories are old stories because they are told and lost lost forever if not!

    "tell away" you have an eager audience here
    I can second that Dean. I love hearing stories from players gone by. I visited Frank Sandell a while back and enjoyed many of his stories from the past and his days with Allison Fisher and also Ronnie when he was a nipper (Ronnie, not Frank!).

    Also, Angela, I will PM you once you have got enough postings.

    Have you seen we have a forum specifically for WLBSA? It is moribund. There used to be a man whose daughter played who would post frequent postings, but he doesn't any longer.

    How did the business with the council go? Have you had to demolish your snooker room?

    Thanks for the welcome to the forum!!
    I will explore the rest of the forum soon, as it brings back great memories of winning and not so great memories of losing

    Thanks for the apology or should I say apologies lol. Like you have said to me personally and on here, which I really do appreciate, you made a mistake and circumstances conspired to confuse things even further for both of us. So as I am a very reasonable person ��Lol and I have learned life is way too short to allow misunderstandings to ruin what will hopefully become a good friendship. You can become grasshopper to my master (if I can remember what to do after so so so long) if you wish too��
    Anyway that's the last I will comment on this as its now been sorted phew!!

    Hi Angela, I should apologise to you because I just read my last post and used the word sulking so sorry about that. Not the best choice of words but it wasn't meant to be offensive and as I suspected you're a nice, reasonable person and I'm sorry about the loss of your parents. This thread wasn't started with any malice and as you can see it was kept light hearted so I hope you guys do become good Snooker mates and I see more of your posts here. After all this is a good place to be for a Snooker fan and you must have some very interesting stories! Did you ever play Karen Corr? It sounds like your father sparked your interest in the game so if I may can I ask more about that?
