Rolling Thunder to Host an "Anything But a Cue Stick" Pool Tournament April 13th at the Lithuanian Club in Muskegon

It's the fist we've ever heard of one.  A pool tournament where you can play with anything BUT a pool cue.  Apparently it's not a "new thing" but, it's unique enough to grab some attention from us and as long as the purpose for the gathering and competition is so important, well...we made the quick trip over to the Lithuanian Club just off Hackley in Muskegon Heights to grab the story.

Al Thompson is a member of Rolling Thunder.  They are a group who works tirelessly for our veterans, POW/MIA and they do it with a sense of pride like you won't find many other places.  They host all kinds of events throughout the year.  They have fund raising dinners, they visit the Veterans Home in Grand Rapids to visit with the residents and celebrate birthdays with them and what not, and their biggest event in Muskegon yearly is "D-Day +" when they hold an observation at the Mart Dock featuring a reenactment camp, flyovers, era reflective dances and more.  It's also a great event where young people can see and feel what it was like to be in WW2 and a living history display right here in Muskegon.

Yes, the fundraisers and memorials are important, but under it all, it's the heart of the members of Rolling Thunder who know what it is to serve and want to help those who did as well any way they can.  The offer assistance with things like medical bills, even some personal bills and needs.  The advocate for veterans issues and they will not stop until they know all POW/MIA are accounted for and home.  These are true Americans serving Americans and we are always proud to support Rolling Thunder.

Now, back to this whole "anything but a cue" pool tournament.  Just like it sounds.  You can use anything but a pool cue to participate in this day long tournament.  Can you re-purpose a broom handle?  How bout an old fishing rod?  Your game pal.  The only thing you can't bring is something that can damage the ball.  That's it.  The event is April 13th at the Lithuanian Club.  The club has great food, cheap drinks and a fun social atmosphere that anyone can enjoy.  There are trophies for the top teams and the proceeds all go to help Rolling Thunder continue their mission for our vets!  Can't ask for much more!

Al Thompson is with Rolling Thunder and Bill Derby is with the Lithuanian Club.  We sat down for a chat in the club, take a listen. 

Fun huh?  This is a great pairing.  Rolling Thunder does so many great things for our Vets and if you've never been into the Lithuanian Club for a fish fry or burrito night....you're missing out.  Check out the fun April 13th and if you think you're a Minnesota Fats of pool without a cue stick....get in the game for a great cause!
