    Billiard Education Foundation Crowns Artistic Pool Junior Champions!


    The magnetic sport of Artistic Pool celebrated 25 years of competitive challenge July 11 – 13, 2018 at the BEF Junior Nationals in New Orleans, LA. Players showed up in record numbers to take the ever – popular “speed control / lag challenge” with 8 BEF National Junior Championship division titles on the line.

    The preliminary rounds of competition on the first two days revealed a host of talented players seeking a gold medal and national title recognition in each division, plus a special cue ball donated by Aramith in a customized clear box holder. Each ball was autographed by Nick Varner and Tom “Dr. Cue” Rossman. Second place finishers after the final rounds would each receive a silver medal and an Aramith signed ball.

    National champions / runner-ups for the boys were: Samuel Hoffman / Jordan Roberts (18 & under), Cody Mofield / Eric Robers (16 & under), Ivo Linkin / Jayden Liu (14 & under), and Patrick Tafoya / Max Moore (11 & under). The national champions / runner-ups for the girls were: Hailey Fullerton / Michelle Jiang (18 & under), Aryana Lynch / Vivian Liu (16 & under), Tiana Jiang / Skylar Hess (14 & under), and Hayleigh Marion / Bethany Tate (11 & under).

    A record – breaking performance by Aryana Lynch was achieved when she scored the highest points total ever for five lags (63 points) and ten lags (108 points). The five lag score registered is the highest among any junior, amateur, or professional player that has ever taken this “repeatable stroke” challenge. Congratulations, Aryana!

    Note: All champion and runner-up players were placed on a special online registry for documented Artistic Pool competitions (trick shots and so much more) since 1979. A “legacy listing” for 342 events and 783 overall / division champions can be found at:

    Two bonus divisions were also held this year so everyone could join in the competitive challenge and family fun. Terry Fullerton (father of Hailey and Ashley) won an “adult only” division, while Hailey and Terry Fullerton won an “adult / junior partner team” division. Congratulations to ALL players and parents that participated in and / or won select awards / prizes in the various Artistic Pool Divisions!

    A special thanks to the BEF (Billiard Education Foundation) for hosting the 2018 BEF National Junior Artistic Pool Championships and for providing medal / ribbon awards for first and second place in each junior division, plus special prizes for the Adult and Adult / Junior divisions. Thank you also to Aramith for the cue balls and custom holders.

    Best Victories...The “Artistic” Way!

    We are proud to have J.Pechauer Custom Cues as a sponsor for the BEF. They have always been committed to our junior program and we would like to personally thank Steve Douglas for his continued support.

    2013 marked our 50 year anniversary here at J. Pechauer Custom Cues... But how did we begin?

    Our story begins with a single cue repair. In 1961 Jerry Pechauer was working under a truck mechanic apprenticeship for the International Harvester Company in Green Bay, Wisconsin. A fellow employee there shared an interest in pool and they played a match. A wager was made and Jerry was victorious. But rather than accepting money he received a broken Willie Hoppe cue as his prize.

    Not knowing any better, Jerry purchased a wood lathe to make a shaft. With some creative alterations he was able to make a shaft fit that Hoppe cue. Next a drill press along with a lathe chuck allowed him to install joints. An avid pool player, Jerry took his love for the game and developed a hobby that would become a passion and a family business for himself and his son Joe.

    Through the years Jerry and Joe continued to expand the shop, adding CNC machines and custom designed equipment to efficiently produce their own parts including a patented quick release joint screw and shaft insert, making Pechauer cues 100% made in-house.

    In 2007, Joe Pechauer took over as President of the company while Jerry continues offering support and expertise on a regular basis.

    A dealer base of 58 dealers in 1993 expanded to over 400 around the world in 2013 making J. Pechauer Custom Cues one of the top brands in the industry beginning with that broken Willie Hoppe cue in 1961.
