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!
