Published by Pat in loving memory of Jim Meador

You've found your way to the 1998 Billiard World section. The articles, drills and artwork were created by Jim Meador. Some of the pages are new, some are from our Chalk Talk newsletter. This web site provided Jim with an opportunity to enjoy two of his loves in & pool. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed watching him create it.

I'll be posting more of Jim's work as soon as I finish preparing it for publication on the web. So, read what we have so far and check back for more.
