2011 Cue Maker of the Year
In 2011 I had a hand in helping pick Tim Scruggs as Cue Maker of the Year ( I was the head of the committee at the time). Tim doesn't make cues anymore, but I still enjoy seeing him at cue shows. The first time I met him was in SC at the first American Cuemakers Association meeting, about 20 years ago. I am one of the charter members of the ACA, as is Tim. The first meeting was at a huge One Pocket Tournment in a hotel that was closing for good the next week Now our Annal Meetting is at the Allen Hopkins Show.
I was talking to another cuemaker and inquired about Tim, I didn't know what he looked like at the time. The other cuemaker kind of smiled and said he's right over there. I turned and looked but there were pool players with pool cue cases everywhere. Where I asked again, there he pointed and leaning against the wall was this normal looking, totally unassuming guy, I don't know I expected....superman ?
I walked over and introduced myself and shook his hand. Always a gentleman he pretended to have some idea who I was. I was honored introduce him as Cue Maker of the Year in 2011.
Great Guy, Great Cues.
