On Friday (April 12) owners of Stix N' Bones in High River, Tracy and Chris Bohning, made it official that they are open for business with High River Mayor Craig Snodgrass helping out with the traditional ribbon cutting.

Tracy was happy with the turnout they have been seeing getting so far.

"It's been good, the weekend has been a little quieter than we have had in the last five weekends being open. It's kind of nice that we have hit that space where things are evening out," Tracy said.

"Yesterday was busy for a Monday, and I was like 'What is that'? It's just kind of all over the map right now, but it was really good."

All ages are welcome to come and join the fun at Stix N' Bones with their arcade machines, pool tables and a plethora of TVs.

"We're a family-operated business, we want families to come out and spend some time together. We want the kids here, and we want to run our league (Billiards) so that we have it open for the pool community as well," Tracy said.

The arcade is nicely separated from the pool tables so the kids can be loud and game while the more experienced members of the community can enjoy playing some pool with less noise.

"I think it works especially when there are tournaments or bigger tournaments. When we had our $500 entry fee tournament a few weeks ago it was nice because you couldn't really see what the kids are playing all night long and they could still concentrate on pool," she said.

Tracy explained that they will hold tournaments every week for pool and will run bigger ones once a month.

When you enter Stix N' Bones people will notice the bright blue finish on the pool tables which the Bohnings picked out for a reason.

"They're pro tour blue, that they use for the professionals. It's just the type of cloth, it's good cloth," Tracy said.

With 16 pool tables, many arcade games and TVs where they could play some playoff games for different sports, there is fun for everyone to enjoy.

Stix N' Bones is located in the mall between Scotiabank and Shoppers Drug Mart.
