Bison Billiards is Western New York's premier billiards hall and bar. We offer eighteen quality pool tables, including seven bar boxes, ten full size tables and one heated carom three-cushion table. Not only do we have the best name brands in equipment with Diamond, Gabriels and Simonis, we offer over thirty types of beer and wine with a limited dinner menu.
Six years ago April, Mike Shriver purchased the former Bogie's Billiards and the new era of Bison began. One of our favorite tournaments every year, the 5th annual Bison Billiards Anniversary Tournament was once again a huge success.
30 strong shooters participated in the double elimination 9-Ball tournament with prize money exceeding $3,400. Out of the top eight players who were paid, four were from the B bracket.
3-Cushion Billiards, also known as Carom Billiards, dates back to the 1870's in St. Louis with Wayman McCreery. It picked up mild traction around that area with several tournaments attracting local talent to participate
If you're familiar with the game of billiards, then you have likely heard of Meucci Cues. Many of the local greats played with one of these back while growing up, as well as the world's best, including Minnesota Fats, Buddy Hall, Nick Varner, Mike Siegae and Earl Strickland. If you walked into a pool room over the past 40 years, chances were at least one person was playing with one.
Saturday we hosted our first women only bar box tournament with great success!
15 shooters entered with over $830 in prize money to be awarded!
Bison's Jr. House League and the Jr's NYS 9-Ball Championship both wrapped up this past month here in Williamsville, NY.
Both events were largely successful and we want to thank everyone who was involved. The future of billiards is with our youth, and the responses we have seen has been nothing short of overwhelming. Our house league continued to grow throughout the season and our turnout for the NYS 9-Ball Championship was incredible.
Congrats to Jay and Cheryl Reed for winning a trip to Las Vegas to compete in the APA National Championship. They beat Mike Shriver and Sheeri Bucki in the semi finals and Mark Hatch and Brittney Wright in the finals.
With this win, they earned a paid for trip to Las Vegas to compete in the National APA annual tournament!!!
