LiquidWick and McDermott Partner on 'Black Widow' and 'Orange County Choppers' Billiard Products

    How Do You Create The Hottest Products In Pool? Utilize Top Brands Such As
    'The Black Widow' and 'Orange County Choppers'

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Sept. 1 /CNW/ -- LiquidWick Pool Cues announced today
that it has entered into a strategic partnership with McDermott Cue Mfg, LLC,
of Menomonee Falls, WI, to manufacture, market and distribute billiards
products for world billiard star Jeanette Lee "The Black Widow" and top
motorcycle brand "Orange County Choppers."

    LiquidWick stormed onto the billiards scene a little over three years ago
and set out to revolutionize the sport by aligning itself with the best
partners in the over six-hundred-year-old industry.  In that time, they have
signed a multi-year endorsement contract with Jeanette Lee, "The Black Widow,"
who is easily the most famous and marketable pool player on the planet, and
just recently acquired the billiards product license rights for "Orange County
Choppers."  The addition of McDermott to this powerful mix is another example
of LiquidWick executing its strategy of becoming a dominant force in the
billiards industry.

    "LiquidWick is thrilled to align itself with a company like McDermott,
whose reputation as one of the top cue manufacturers and distributors in the
world will complement the new products being created for the global brands of
'The Black Widow' and 'Orange County Choppers,'" said Rich Gustin, LiquidWick

    LiquidWick expects to have "Black Widow" billiard products in retail
locations, including Sears, by early fall.  The "Orange County Choppers"
products are in development and scheduled to hit the retail marketplace in
time for the 2009 holiday season.

    "We are also excited about the partnership with LiquidWick and feel that
the new products should be received well in the marketplace," said Nat
Rosasco, McDermott President and CEO.  "We are confident that our retail
partners that carry these new products will benefit from the traffic driven to
their locations by the large fan bases of both 'The Black Widow' and 'OCC.'"

    LiquidWick has also contracted with "Orange County Choppers" to have a
custom bike built that will incorporate a "Black Widow" and billiards theme. 
"This bike will be the hottest motorcycle ever created for the billiards
industry," said Dan Shields, LiquidWick Partner.  "'OCC' bikes can be huge
draws and we plan to use this incredible new chopper, along with appearances
by Jeanette Lee, for marketing and promotional events to support our retail

    "I am thrilled about the new cue lines in development," said Jeanette
Lee.  "I know that the partnership of LiquidWick and McDermott will
manufacture high quality, affordable cues.  I also am intrigued by the new OCC
LiquidWick Chopper which sounds like great fun."

    The next step for LiquidWick is the development of a billiards-themed
restaurant chain that is being spearheaded by LiquidWick Partner, Rich Gustin,
who has over twenty years of successful major hotel and restaurant development
experience.  The flagship location for the entertainment and restaurant venue
is expected to be located in Nevada.

    LiquidWick Pool Cues is a cue manufacturing and media production and
promotion company endorsed by world billiards star Jeanette Lee, "The Black
Widow."  The company also owns the billiards product license rights for top
motorcycle brand "Orange County Choppers."  LiquidWick was the first billiards
company to air a half-hour infomercial on national television.  Their media
production arm has produced both "The LiquidWick Infomercial" and "Trick Shot
Mania," a DVD featuring Andy "The Magic Man" Segal.
