In April 1998, The game of Billiards lost one of its biggest fans, Jim Meador, publisher of Billiard World web magazine. Jim died suddenly from a heart attack in his Newport News, Va. Home. In his memory, Billiard World is now maintained by Chuck Meador. His children proudly respond to all emails, as they inherited an equal love for the game. Thanks in advance for your support in our fathers passion.
November 1998. Thanksgiving day at Chuck's house we gathered around the pool table in my garage and played a mini pool tournament to remember our father. We looked through one of dad's boxes (he only had a couple of boxes, mostly paints and brushes) for a suitable award for the winner and found an old plaque that was given to dad in the 60's when he worked for the daily press. Vicki won the first year.
November 1999. We had Thanksgiving at Vicki's and again we played a small tournament to remember our father....Vicki won again!
