October 12th Ballers - Todd, Sun Prairie

Post by pinball4ever »

Hey everyone!

I'll be hosting Ballers league on Saturday, October 12th.

7:00pm start. Anytime after 5pm for practice/food/drinks/loud yelling over game noise.

We'll have a taco bar setup with chicken and beef catered from Burrachos (our favorite local Mexican place) along with various chips, cookies, etc. Flavored water, beer, hard seltzer, soda. Fully stocked candy machine.

I hosted the Madison league last weekend and we had some issues with weak flippers (and a few other low power issues) when all the games were on at once. I recommend only turning on games being used to prevent this from happening again (or even tripping a breaker), then just turn it off when done (so they all aren't on at the same time). It was really fun throwing all the games in the random play format for that league, you never knew what game you'd end up playing! :lol:

Hope everyone can make it. Please feel free to text me or post a message here if you have any questions or special request. A list of all the games and my contact info and address are in the detailed schedule section.

Thanks!
Todd

Now that Christine no longer works weekends, I can actually do a few of these.

I will be there, and Adam (my oldest son) wants to participate too.

Awesome Tim! I was going to call and make sure you saw this. Happy Adam can make it too. It must feel weird to actually be able to do things again on the weekend! :lol:

It does feel weird. It has been 12 years of this weekend schedule thing.... My wife may regret switching to weekends off if I am finding time to do stuff for myself all the time..... lol

It actually feels more weird that I have a son in middle school who wants to hang out with his dad.... :D

Is Adam the one who likes Sinbad?

Does he like to gamble? ;)

Adam already has stuff picked out for when he wins it all. His thought process is if he can crush his Dad every game and everyone else plays about the same it's an easy win!
