Perfect Game
for Ike at Kennedy
On Friday, March 21, at Kennedy Seniors Centre, Ike Toews ran 147. A perfect game of snooker.

More high breaks at Kennedy
On March 28, John Lundie of the Kennedy made a break of 102, on March 29, John had another break of 117 and then on April 4, a break of 141. All were done in open play against some formidable opposition. I think these are only his 4th and 5th centuries which in my mind makes it all more incredible to have done all this. Watch out for John, he's just getting started.

4. The half circle "D" has a 9.2" (9-3/16") diameter and on the centre line. This gives you the yellow, brown and green spots.

CUE RETIPPING - Easy to follow step by step guide on how to remove your old tip and put a new tip on your cue. Three page PDF to view or print.

Table Care and Maintenance
1. Cover your tables when not in use, dust settling into the cloth will cause it to break down over time.
2. The cloth can be occasionally vacuumed to get the accumulation of dust out and ironed to flatten the nap.
3. Be sure to keep drinks away for the tables, water and other liquids will stain the cloth and once stained there is no way to get the stain out.
4. Dead cushions, the rubber can harden over time (especially if the table is not used for long periods of time) and should be replaced every few years. Snooker table rubber is known as "L" rubber because of its shape.
5. Cloth should be replaced every few years depending on the amount of use the table gets.
