Califon Billiards Califon - Billiard Instruction
At Califon Billiards, private and group lessons are available. Sessions are conducted on site by "Califon Ed" a BCA certified billiard instructor.
About Ed Smith, Certified BCA Instructor
Billiard instruction is given by our in-house pro "Califon Ed" Smith, certified by the BCA to teach pool in 1998. Ed has been playing pool for over 35 years and has competed and won many local tournaments. Ed won his first competition at the age of 17 when he captured the New York city title while playing on the boys club championship team; a tournament sponsored by the Billiard Congress of America in 1965. Ed attributes this achievement from having been schooled by players such as Joe "the meatman" Balsis, Michael Eufemia, and watching other world class players frequently play in NY such as Onofrio Lauri, Luther "Whimpy" Lassiter, Irving "The Deacon" Crane, Cicero Murphy, "machine gun" Lou Butera, Johnny Ervolino and a local NY player and pool friend Gene Nagy.
From 1966 to 1969 Ed's playing was somewhat limited while serving in a US Naval Air Squadron as an electronic warfare specialist. Ed had almost a 10 year lay off from pool after he was discharged from the navy. He first started working for AT&T in NY in 1970 after getting married and started to raise a family. At that time he also became quite active in numismatics (coin collecting) in NJ. It wasn't until 1980 when he once again picked up a pool cue and caught a touch of that infamous "pool fever". Since then he has competed actively and won a number of tournaments in NJ, and local tavern pool team championships. In 1992 Ed, his wife Manoli, and son Eddie opened the doors to Califon Billiards where he now makes his home and has been teaching beginner through intermediate level players for over 5 years. Recently retired from AT&T after 28 1/2 years of service as a technical support manager, Ed now plans on making pool his lifelong ambition and "hobby". A dream come true.
