S13, R9

68 Players gathered to play pinball at FGW on this evening. Gabe tallied a very impressive 33 points to put himself in a good position for a bye (top 8). Zac keeps on winning and he can be the first person to break 300 points for a season. “All” he needs is a 33 point performance next round!

See you on May 8th!

S13, R8

61 Players showed up for pinball league, including 5 guests. We handed out medals for perfect rounds from the early days (seasons 1-4), and something to commemorate that will also soon hang on the FGW wall.

Zac W. continues his onslaught, and retook the lead in the standings. His 33 points was a round high, and the question we ask ourselves is: will he break 300 points for the season? A feat that has never been done before!

See you on April 24th for round 9. Also, don’t forget to pony up the dues for next season. Last date to pay is May 8th.

S 13, R 7

We had 70 players come out to play for this round. Mickey, Jessica R., and Eric W. were all inducted into the 100 Club, and Eric topped that off with his first ever perfect score of 35 points. Nicely done!

What really brought the house down though, was when Bumpers announced that she soon would become Mrs Fish! Congratulations from us all.

S13, Round 6

64 players came out, including an old friend of the league, Garrett, who used to be a member in the early days.

As the evening ended, a quartet of players had scored a very respectable 31 point. They were Mike M, Tony, Chris He, and Mr. Top of the Standings, Zac.

Next round will be on April 3rd.

Street Level – No Ramps

It was a beautiful St Patrick’s Day in San Francisco. Instead of the usual revelry, 31 brave souls sought out the pinball sanctuary located in the Haight, a.k.a. FreeGoldWatch.

Brian, Zac, Nic, & Ryan made up the top 4 finishers. Well played!

8 Rounds of qualifying later, 8 players duked it out in a head to head bracket playoffs.

Thanks to all for coming out and making this a fun event!

S13, Round 5

We’re at the halfway mark already! Wow, that was fast.

75 players, including 4 guests showed up on a rainy night. Our resident statistician, Derek, (of Derek’s Corner fame) managed to get his first perfect 35-point night. Well done!
Closely thereafter followed guest player Gilbert with 33 points, and Nateball Deluxe at 32. Sammy came oh so close to the coveted 35, but was stumped by Anish and Maura on Royal Flush, which was their group’s last game of the evening.

Jeremy Williams’ latest contribution to the pinball world. A custom made topper for his Ghostbusters game. It shows the movie on a loop. Wonderful!

Listen… do you smell something?

See you on March 20th for round 6!

And don’t forget about Street Level – No Ramps at 1 PM on Sunday, March 17th at FGW. Open for all! Registration opens at 12:30 PM.

S13, Round 4

No fewer than 76 players came out for some fun league times. 4 players flirted with a perfect night, only to fall 2 points short. They were: Zac W., Gabe, James, and Per.

Notable is also that Anish tallied his 4th straight 17-point night. Way to keep it consistent.

See you on March 6th!
