What we’re about
We are a group who wants to expand, but not to the point , that it becomes so big, that it becomes less personal. We meet about 3-4 times per week. We are all single, however, there are some couples who have met during the course of this club's existence. Yes, we are all 39 and over, and we are all "holding". We are Baby Boomers and most of us are closer to 55-65. We are mostly from the West Valley but certainly not limited to those areas.
We do pool shooting, movies, dinners, karaoke, baseball games, trivia, concerts, and dancing, just to name a few activities. This group randomly does some volunteering, and philanthropic projects, as well. These Meet-ups are all on a volunteer basis, and none are mandatory to participate in. We also have house parties, and usually they are potlucks and BYOBeverage affairs. These house parties are for Established members only. In order to become Established, you must have attended 2 Meet-ups and met an Organizer or the host of the party in person, prior to the event. Due to the ways of the world, then and only then, is a new member invited into private homes.
We collect monies for dues, birthday party expenses, etc., by passing a piggy bank around once in awhile, and each person donates a dollar or more.
We are a real down to earth bunch, and pride ourselves in being friendly, and welcoming. We keep the group smaller by removing members who have ABSOLUTELY no activity for 9 months or more. You can rejoin at anytime if it seems we are a group for you after all. Matchmaking is not our main goal, however it is not discouraged.
The 39 and Holding Club frowns of those people who join the group for personal gain. This website is not to be used as an agenda for that. You will be removed from the group if we deem that to be the case.
You can also be removed from the group, or regularly scheduled repeat events with 3 no-shows.

- Canadian Pool- EVERYONE IS WELCOME to play this weekBull Shooters, Phoenix, AZ
On This Thursday- we will shoot Canadian Pool in lieu of our regularly scheduled league night, since there are 5 Thursdays in November and we took Thanksgiving Thursday off .
Even though this is our Regular Thursday night venue, anyone can play Canadian Pool, and if you don't know the rules it can be taught in less than a minute. (LITERALLY) This game is 1/2 luck and 1/2 skill, so ANYONE can shoot, and WIN. 🎱
Canadian pool is an event giving EVERYONE a chance to join in, whether you shoot on the regularly scheduled league or not
The $5.00 fee is for Canadian Pool Shooters only. Depending on the turnout , determines how many tables we will have our shoot-outs on. CHEERLEADERS 📣 do not pay.
We will divide in 1/2 (at least) as a time saver, as the number of attendees generally warrants it, otherwise we all shoot on one table. We shoot the first and last game as Co-ed, then have the 2nd n 3rd games divided amongst men and women separately. The prize monies are determined by the roster size. If 10 people shoot, the prize is $10..... etc..... etc.... The first game will start at 7:15.
If you want to come, to play or just to cheerlead, have a drink, a meal, or just a conversation, this is your Thursday Night place to be. Their food here is pretty good as well. Bring your buddies too. If you don’t have a buddy when you show up, I guarantee you will have one before the night is over.
PLEASE NOTE: this is for guest Amateurs only, rated 4 or under. If you don't know your rating, chances are pretty good you are a 4 or under. Please don't come and expect to shoot fish in our barrell.
