SENSORY OVERLOAD! That’s a good way of describing round 8. We had 64 players come to play, out of which many had dressed up in costume. Extra special thanks to the dresser uppers! Game 7 of the World Series between Kansas City Royals and SF Giants was on TV and had many of us choosing machines in close proximity to the tube just to be able to catch a glimpse of another Giants triumph.

James had a another great night with 16.5 points, as did Louise. Allison and Richard L followed closely behind with 15.5, while Sally and Andrei each had 15 points.

In the standings, Andrei has a slim lead over James. Those two have pulled ahead of a pack of players fighting for good playoff position. In this moment, Gene holds the last A-division spot, only 0.5 points over rookie sensation Jaime. Two rounds to go of the regular season!

(Only the top 18 players after the 1st round made the cut and got to play round 2. Michael J would have qualified for the 2nd round, but had to take off. His place was filled by Michael M.)

Round 7

Round 7 saw 63 players leave their tv’s where the Giants were battling the Cardinals for NL supremacy to meet up with fellow pinball enthusiasts at FreeGoldWatch. (Where the game is always on anyways!)

Andrei showed who’s boss by compiling an impressive 18-point night in a very tough group. Russ and Jaime both had great nights with 16.5 points apiece, leaving them in the top 16. Jaime is making a strong case for rookie of the year, but we’ll see what happens in the playoffs.

Other good scores were had by Jeremy, KevMo, & Andy with 15.5 points.

Next meeting will be on Oct. 29th. Feel free to wear a Halloween costume. Prizes to the best dresser uppers!

Every game – Every time!

Our last experiment using all the available machines without bank restrictions turned out so well that we will make it a permanent change. I.e. there will no longer be a “door” and a “desk” bank to choose from, instead all working pins will be in one happy, giant bank!
