Rusty to pot them at Pines

THE Gympie Eight Ball Club is set to host two-time and current Australian Champion and Captain, John "Rusty" Wheeler at their Gympie Pines home.

Club spokesman Neil Turley said the GEBA along with Typhoon Cues would have two-time and current Australian Champion and captain, John "Rusty" Wheeler performing a show for entertainment.

"Not only has Rusty won the Aussie open twice, he has also been the Queensland and New South Wales champion three times each," Turley said.

"He has been a member of the Australian Eight Ball team since 2007, a member of the Australian Nine Ball team and a member of the Australian American Eight Ball team."

Turley said the show consisted of trick shots, demonstrations, coaching and a player challenge.

He said anyone wanting to try their hand against the best could.

"The cost is $5 per adult and school kids are free," Turley said.

The demonstration will be held at the Gympie Pines Golf course this Sunday at 1pm.

The GEBA has just come off a successful come and try day last weekend.

The club has four premium pool tables at the golf club for people to play.

The club urges anyone interested in playing eight ball to ring the committee members.

"We have some awesome options for people with all kinds of busy lifestyles," Turley said.

He said for those wanting to play at a higher level, the GEBA was the only avenue in the Gympie area to gain access to Queensland Eight Ball events such as the City v Country and the Queensland Cup.
