This team is top-notch, from the player’s meeting thru to the final match, the no-nonsense, professional approach to managing the event has set the bar for others to follow.

More About On The Hill Productions

We asked the team to tell us a little about themselves, when they started shooting pool and how they got involved with tournament play.

Rick Scarlato Jr.

I started playing when I was 5 at my father’s taxi stand in Havre de Grace. My father started me playing, it was our way of spending time together when I was a kid. He was the most influential person in my pool career. My father being an avid player himself, I was around a lot of great players from a young age. I saw them competing amongst each other in league play, tournaments and gambling. I knew then that I wanted to compete as well. In 2003, I got married and started a family soon after. I took a little break from the game to focus on my family and work. When I came back to the game in 2016, I started to compete in tournament play to satisfy my competitive desires. I had some high finishes on the Mezz Tour, Action Pool Tour and I finished T-17th at Turning Stone in my first true pro event. In 2017, one of my personal favorite tournaments, the Maryland State Championships, was no longer going to be held. I talked to the tournament director, John Moody Sr., about continuing the tournament. With his blessing, I ran my very first tournament with 107 players. Quickly realizing I needed some help, I called on my childhood friend, Loye Bolyard. From that On The Hill Productions was born. From the early beginnings, we have expanded into 10 annual events with plans to grow even more. In 2017, I got the opportunity to work with Tony Manning at Brews & Cues On The Boulevard as the general manager. Since 2019, Brews & Cues has hosted all of our bar table tournaments. In the summer of 2020, On The Hill Productions launched a YouTube Channel for the streaming of all of the events we run.

Loye Bolyard

I’ve been playing for 35 years, it started when we would walk home from George’s Restaurant in Edgewood on Friday and Saturday nights. There was only a couple of things for us to do growing up. Roller skate, hang out at the arcade in the Harford mall or a friend’s house. A small group went to George’s. Walking home we passed by a place called Crazy Eights. More of a pool hall than a restaurant. It was closer and that became the hangout for us. This was the mid to late eighties when this was going on. That place was a second home for me. The owners were Jerry Halkins and Bert Driesh, Bert saw I had a great interest in pool, taking me under his wing I’ve learned a lot from him. Playing daily for 6 or so hrs my game grew at a fast pace. Young good eyes and wanting more.

In 1999 I started a family, with some ups, and downs. After my second marriage with my current wife Cyndi we raised 2 beautiful daughters and raising a 3rd right now.

The tournament road started with Rick contacting John Moody who ran for many years the Maryland State Championships in Southern Maryland, Action Billiards in Salisbury, and Cambridge was the home of Great Slates Billiards. Once Rick and he talked about keeping the spirit alive Rick had his first event which I only helped. After the event, Rick and I worked on what we have now, On The Hill Productions with 7 events and adding 3 more possible 4 thru this year.

Dave Nangle

I started playing pool after high school, in 1990. My first exposure to bigger tournaments was in the early 2000’s with the Planet Pool Tour events. After watching an Artistic Pool event at the Super Billiards Expo in 2004, I decided to try my luck in that discipline. I competed in Artistic events from 2005-2016. My best moments were a 5th place finish in the 2007 World Championship, winning the 2008 Masse World Championship, and being invited to compete in ESPN’s Trick Shot Magic in 2010. Since I stopped competing in Artistic Pool, I have shifted my focus to running and streaming pool tournaments.

Joshua McCauley

I’ve been playing pool for about 16 years. I got into it after I got hurt and could no longer play baseball anymore. I’ve always been a competitive person and that’s what I love about this sport and tournaments. It doesn’t matter how old you are what color you are or if you are a man or woman. Only thing that matters is if you can play. I’m a coach at heart and love to teach which is why I live doing the commentary. It allows me to share my knowledge of the game to anyone who may be trying to get better and wants to really learn the game.

Beverlee Dillow

I’ve been playing since 2004 and prior to helping Rick, I ran tournaments for the APA. I’ve been with On the Hill since day one.

TTMD Billiards Streaming is incredibly thankful to On The Hill Productions for their sponsorship of the TTMD Billiards Streaming 10 Ball Open Championship.

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.
