Win a Jim Pierce cue built from wood sourced from Terry Stonier’s personal archive! 

Attendees of this year’s Terry Stonier Reunion 9-Ball event will have the chance to win a newly constructed custom cue built by Jim Pierce. Since the cue is still under construction and not due to be unveiled until mid-March of this year, we cannot release photos until then. Attendees who may have any questions about this cue or any remaining projects which can be arranged using the ‘Stonier Collection’ of wood should be directed to Jim Pierce by visiting his Facebook Page.

 

The 49th Annual Terry Stonier Reunion 9-Ball Tournament!

On April 14th and 15th, 2018 The Jointed Cue Billiards in Sacramento California is holding its 49th annual 9-Ball, Reunion Tournament in honor of the late Terry Stonier, the original Jointed Cue owner, who had been holding this event since 1968. After his passing in 2001, Terry’s legacy still carries on with the help of The Jointed Cue’s current owner, Michael Murphy and tournament directors, Joe Murphy and Angel Olivarez. Entries are currently being taken (see below) and live streaming services have been secured with POV Pool attending for its 3rd year in a row.

Terry and The Jointed Cue’s Place in History

AS A TEEN, TERRY STARTED PLAYING 3-CUSHION BILLIARDS AT HIS NEIGHBORS HOUSE WITH A DREAM TO ONE DAY OWN HIS OWN ESTABLISHMENT. THEN IN 1968 TERRY OPENED UP THE JOINTED CUE BILLIARDS. WITH 19 TABLES; IT ALSO BECAME THE TALK OF THE TOWN FOR ITS FAMOUS CHEESEBURGERS WHICH STILL HOLDS TRUE THIS VERY DAY. TERRY WAS A VISIONARY WHO HELD MANY EXHIBITIONS, SUPPORTED SCORES OF BIG PLAYERS AND KEPT THE POOL SCENE GOING STRONG IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA FOR MANY YEARS. HE HOSTED EVENTS WITH PLAYERS LIKE LOU BUTERA, LUTHER LASSITER, CICERO MURPHY, RICHIE FLORENCE AND MANY OTHERS. LATER IN LIFE, TERRY WENT ON TO MAKING CUES FOR AWHILE, SOME OF WHICH CAN STILL BE FOUND ON THE COLLECTORS MARKET. HIS JOINTED CUE BILLIARDS IS PROBABLY THE OLDEST SURVIVING POOL-HALLS IN CALIFORNIA AND IS STILL LOCALLY KNOWN AS YOUR ‘CLASSIC PLAYER’S, POOL-HALL’, BOASTING A SEPARATE ‘ACTION ROOM’ WITH FOUR, 9 FOOT GOLD CROWN TABLES AND SURROUNDED BY AN OLD-FASHIONED, RAISED SEATING AREA.
