Crap! I had a hunch this would happen when you mentioned it some time ago.
Not much I can say that hasn’t been said. I always enjoyed your events, and it was one of the few where Devin felt welcome and actually wanted to come along. The Pinball, company & food was always top notch.
Thanks for the great times and sharing your incredible collection with us Chris! Stay in touch, keep Nobling on his toes and see ya soon!

Best of luck to you and your family!
Tully

Wow, congrats on the new place, Chris! It's a bummer for all of us, of course, and I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to send you off, but I hope the move goes smoothly for you, and you find some pinball people way cooler than Nobling in Missouri.

We were getting into pinball only a few years ago... we'd only been to MGC and had played a few games on route. Garrett told me "hey, you should come to this Ballers night at Chris' house, you'll have fun." I expected to find a few pins and a bunch of anti-social, super-serious pinball nerds suspicious of the new guy. I was blown away at the palace you'd constructed in your basement, and how welcoming you and everyone else in Ballers was to a new guy. That night my plans went from "maybe I'll have one pin" to "I think I can fit eight".

You'll be missed, Chris! I can play pinball anytime, but hanging out with you guys is where the fun is.

Make sure to drop a line here if you can make it to MGC, so we can make fun of the new accent you're about to acquire. ;)

Oh, and if you don't have enough room on the truck for that Bad Cats.... :D

I remember the first time coming over to your place pretty clearly. It was one of the weekend pinball parties, and you didn't know me at ALL but simply said "Just come on in and make yourself at home - seriously". I did feel a little weird going into a strangers house, but walked in and knew a bunch of folks already there but had to go introduce myself to you and you just welcomed me - and I had a great time of course!

I remember the first time Martell came over. He started bouncing machine together. I was like.....WOW it’s going to be that kind of party. Then Nobling started dropping DIKs on machines and I really knew what kind of party it was.

It was always a pleasure having you at the house Sean.

I’m really glad he felt welcome. Most of that has to do with the entire group. He was no longer welcome when he started winning. 😆🤪

Just cause I misunderstood what “leaving a DIK on the table” meant? :D

Ha exactly. It’s the test Nobling uses to see if you can hang or not. :evil:

No lie there... I have spent more money on Dance moves in Fortnite than pinball in the last 6 months.

I can attest to this, I've had to watch all those stupid dance moves.

I don't know what's worse: Tim buying all the dance move or me continuing to play and watch them.

You guys are scarin' me... Fortnite's fu#kin' evil. I could also buy a nice pinball with all the $$ I've spent making a certain teenager happy with stupid dance moves, "rare" skins and upgrades!!

But I digress. Those pictures of that empty former awesome space are kind of depressing. But at least we have some really great memories and an 8 1/2 hour road trip to play Heavy Metal Meltdown might not be such a crazy idea... As long as there's a great wing joint nearby!!
