hmmmm...maybe I need to start playing in the Tim E group from now on! :)

That's a great story - I can only imagine what the karaoke crowd was thinking. At least they didn't serenade you with "Pinball Wizard".

Congrats on winning the battle, Tim! It was a smaller crew this time but everyone had a great time. I know I did! Looking forward to next month!

Thanks Ken, Sean, and Tom! Yeah, that was awesome. Great call on the "Pinball Wizard" song, Sean. That would have been great, but probably more pressure. :oops:
One great thing. We have a much better chance ascending in the ranks in pinball then those guys do in the singing world. What a beating! :lol:

who is coming on Sat?

I am hoping to make it over for a much needed forced break from work, work on rental, work on pinball (lots to do on WOOLY if is going to be ready for MRP). Always a good time and I need more warm up before MRP.

With the heat bringing folks in for some pinball, we had 26 participants at Schwoegler's this past Saturday including 5 brand new players! I saw a lot of seasoned players helping everyone with rules and general playing, which was great to see! I had a great time, so thanks to everyone who stopped out and made it so!

Big congrats to Nick Stanton for his first place finish, besting second place finisher Ryan Spindler in a final game of ACDC! Looking forward to next months tourney. Stay cool everyone.

I would *never* do anything like that!! :lol: Nick put up big scores on both South Park and ACDC in the final rounds, and knowing how well Ryan consistently plays ACDC makes it a well earned first place. Congrats to all the top finishers! Someday I hope to be able to join them. Someday...

Alright - the next regularly scheduled monthly tournament at Schwoegler's is upon us! This Saturday, September 19th, starting at 6pm. America's Most Haunted is in, replacing AC/DC in the qualifying! Of course, all games can be used in playoffs including Gold Strike (for all you EM fans out there).

Fun will be had. Drinks will be drank. Games will be played. Prizes will be awarded. I'm looking forward to a great time as always!

Thanks for hosting Sean! It was a great time! Nice to see so many new people! I even talked with a mother and son who were just there to "check it out" as one of the moms friends had told her about us. Congrats to Rob for the great play in his first WI tourney!

Glad to hear that they made it out; she is one of my co-workers. I spoke with her this morning and she said that her and her son had a great time playing the games in the bar and that everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I told her about the Fall Flipout and it sounds like they may try to get in on that.
