83 players showed up for round 2 (74 members + 9 guests), which was tied for the record for most players in a round. 3 players finished with 33’s, Matt H., Josh, and Per. Andrei was not far behind with a 32 point night. He also trails Alex in the total standings. As you may remember, the two of them duked it out in last season’s finals.
After league play, it was time for the latest rage in pinball – STALL BALL! A conga line of 25+ people took turns playing The Addams Family, and in the end one winner took home the whole prize pot (where every player had chipped in their dollar).
Remember, round 3 is already next week, on August 22nd! See ya’ll then.
It was a wonderful homecoming party last Wednesday at FGW. The summer hiatus was over, and we were getting ready to piiiiiiiinbaaaaaaall!
Eddie Codel (who allegedly spent the last month on high altitude in a secret location while playing pinball 10 hours/day) showed everyone how it’s done by notching a perfect 35 point night. Alex was not far behind with 33 points, followed by current league champ Brian O. at 31.
We also welcomed 5 out of 7 rookies, (Christian and Terry Lynn could not make round 1) namely Janel, Daylene, Cameron, Eric B., & Matt T. (not a true rookie though and therefore not eligible for the rookie of the season award).
82 Hopeful players showed up for league round 8 (73 members & 9 guests). Mythic pizzas arrived (at long last…) and play resumed with a multitude of stuck balls. Thank you officials for freeing said balls, and thank you players for alerting said officials!
The machine formerly known as Andrei, continued his onslaught with another 33 point night. Chris Harkins tallied a 33 of his own, while Jay and Per had 31’s to show for the night.
Chris L received his pin for joining the 100 Club, and some Spumante to wash down the pizza with. Chris was the 1st player of our league to reach this milestone. Well done Sir!
73 players came to pin on a balmy evening in March. Although nobody got a perfect 35, both Matt W & Brian O showed their skills by each logging 33’s for the night.
We also celebrated Forrest’s birthday with cake brought in by Kendra. (And N8ball’s too!)
Members who have showed their dedication to the league by showing up 100 times, will receive a pin as a token of their membership in the “100 Club”. First one in was Chris L, followed by Matt H, Andreas, & Per. Congrats!
On Saturday, April 24th, 29 players gathered to play Doodle Bug and other fun games from the 70’s and 80’s. After 9 rounds of qualifying, 12 players had emerged to make up the playoff field. The top 4 qualifiers received a bye round and were safely in the top 8.
Thanks to all participants for coming to play, and special thanks to Derek & Eric for great officiating!
