Sponsor Spotlight; On Cue Sports Bar and Grill

Sponsor of the TTMD Billiards Streaming 10-Ball Open Championship.

Cole and Danielle Haase the owners of On Cue Sports Bar and Grill in Front Royal, VA have been fabulous.

When we contacted them in October of last year and asked if we could host an event at their facility, they almost certainly did not know what we had in mind.

After several months of reaching out to players– pros, and amateurs alike, we felt we could pull off something special. TTMD Billiards Streaming started actively looking for event sponsors and procuring the money needed for the added 10K in prize money.

Talking with Cole we explained we were ready to move forward and began advertising the event, and he has been all in ever since. When we created the flyer for the upcoming 10 Ball tournament, we (TTMD Billiards Streaming) posted that the balls would be Aramith Pro Cup, however, that was a mistake as On Cue, uses Aramith Premier balls. Once we (TTMD) realized the error, we were going to update the graphic, but true to form, Cole said “…don’t worry about it, I’ll get in touch with Aramith and we will get Pro Cup Balls.” Then went on to ask “when should I get the tables recovered?” as he was concerned the tables might be too slippery and tough for the players. If you watched the Mosconi Cup you will recall, even the best players in the world can have a tough time with brand-new cloth and balls.

The town of Front Royal is brimming with anticipation and excitement, which is no doubt a reflection of the respect the community has for Cole. Everyone wants to see the pros come to town but they also want to see their guy Cole have a great turnout and successful event. As we draw closer it is clear to our team how much this event has gained interest, not just with the players, but with the locals. We are often approached and asked about the tournament when we are in town.

If you have not been to On Cue Sports Bar and Grill, you should plan a trip. As a pool player, you could not be happier as the nine-foot Blue Label Diamonds are kept in spectacular shape, and they play true. The food is excellent, offering a full dinner menu and light fare food after dinner hours. The bar is stocked, cold beer on tap, all served with a smile from the friendly waitstaff.

Take a day trip to the area to enjoy the outdoors, hike the Appalachian Trail, go white water rafting, tubing, or fishing. Wind down your day at On Cue Sports Bar and Grill, maybe join in on a Monthly 9-Ball tournament.

We at TTMD Billiards Streaming are extremely grateful for the opportunity to host this premier event at On Cue Sports Bar and Grill.

If you cannot make it to the event we will be providing free live stream coverage on our website.

Sponsor Spotlight; Baltimore City Cues; Finksburg, Maryland

Thank you to Baltimore City Cues, for sponsoring our upcoming TTMD Billiards Streaming 10 Ball Open Championship at On Cue Sports Bar and Grill, in Front Royal, VA.

Baltimore City Cues’ Story

Baltimore City Cues started as a WBE, a small business endeavor in 2007, in Baltimore Maryland, with support from Tim Scruggs and Mike Cochran.

After a few months, with the encouragement from Tim and Mike, they called Dan Janes owner of Joss Cues in Towson Maryland and asked if they could come to visit and discuss with him the manufacturing of a Baltimore City Cues Sneaky Pete line of cues. Dan graciously said they could talk, a meeting date was set, a design for the cues was formalized and ultimately manufactured. 

The Janes family of Joss Cues has been an instrumental force in molding and making Baltimore City Cues what and where they are today. Their ability to produce the finest playing cues available and their industry knowledge enabled Baltimore City Cues to grow and thrive over the past 18 years. C Jay shares “The debt owed can never be paid other than thanking them for their support.”

So they purchased a van and went on the road selling pool cues, accessories, and cues repair. As the years went by they built their customer base to include Senior Living facilities in the DELMARVA geographical area, Military bases from VA to NJ, and tournament appearances, their favorite being the Turning Stone Classic with Mike Zuglan.

Eventually they opened their first cue repair shop at Champion Billiard Sports Bar in Frederick Maryland where they enjoyed supporting the players and customers until 2021. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic they unfortunately had to close, but there was a silver lining.

On October 1st 2021 they opened their new facility in Finksburg Maryland where they were able to expand the shop and now enjoy sales and service at the new location.

Baltimore City Cues is a full-service sales and cue repair shop. They carry pool cues and accessories, as well as on-site service for cue maintenance and repair.

Thank you from TTMD Billiards Streaming

We would like to thank C Jay and Peggy Wilkinson for all they do for cue sports. Often they are involved behind the scenes assisting players and helping juniors reach their goals.

C Jay is a tireless advocate for cue sports and we are thrilled to share our vision and passion with him.
