David Edwards… Used to love bar billiards tho’ very few pubs have them now. But I believe the Jenny has one.

Sandy Max… Still play in the Nags Head! I think they got their table from the Fox when it closed. Much more skilful than the ubiquitous American Pool played in most pubs. I believe there may still be a Bar Billiards league?
