Lonely Patches Club

In 8 Ball Express when you accomplish any of the following during a League match, in your next week's scoresheet you will generally find an embroidered patch as a symbol of your feat:

  • 8 Break & Run - Break a rack and make all your balls in an 8-Ball League match without missing
  • 8 or 9-Ball on the Break - Make an 8-Ball or 9-Ball while breaking
  • Membership Patch - Each year a member renews their membership

What I've always wondered is what do people do with these patches? Some members, who have been playing for years and years, must have received at least 100 patches. What happens to them? Responses I've received:

  • Put them in my desk drawer
  • Sew them onto a t-shirt
  • Coasters
  • Put them on a ring
  • Glue them to pool stick cases
  • Give to kids
  • Instant Gratification - One division, that has been playing steadily since 8 Ball Express started, told me they give them to their host bar. Then, when newer members do something deserving of a patch, they can give them a patch instantly, instead of waiting all week for their next score sheet to arrive.
  • Display in home office/pool room/living room
