Re: Madison Pinball Spring Classic> Madison, WI

Big scores?... I wish. ;) Mansion did not want to be thoroughly toured today. Just sent my scores and sheet in around 10:20/10:30, and also sent a text your way, Hilton, to verify. Had a great time! And really excited to see how it all shakes out. See everyone at the party on Friday!!
