Four Corners pool hall scores big with kids

FARMINGTON, N.M. - A Farmington pool hall has just opened its doors and already it's becoming a hit with the locals.


After ten years of working as an EMT, Diane Mason decided to open up Lucky Break Billiards and Darts. To her, it's fulfilling a dream she's had since she was 14-years-old.

Mason says the non-smoking, alcohol-free pool hall is for giving kids a chance to grow.

"What's neat about it is that they are learning life skills," Mason said. "They are learning how to socialize. They are learning the math. When they play darts they've got to do math."

Not only are they learning life skills, it seems it's helping to keep the kids out of trouble.

"There is a lot of gangs, a lot of drugs and everything on the streets," said Dalton Bethell who plays at the pool hall. "It's really important for kids to have a place that is safe and a good environment to just have fun and spend some time."

The cost to play at Lucky Break is just $10 a player. Mason says she plans to start hosting tournaments on Mondays for both pool and darts.
