We were extremely sad to hear about the passing of Lani Diamon. 😥 He was a very kind and giving man. He loved playing pool with his family and greatly supported the Juniors league. He will be dearly missed by many.
[04/23/19] There will not be Juniors league this Saturday, April 27. 🙁 Mike and Daryl will be at the League Operators convention and baseball season starts that day for many of the players. We look forward to seeing all of you on May 25 for the pizza party!
