Ballers 2020 Hosts / Signup

For some a monthly donation, for others, it rubs the lotion on the skin.

Ballers 2020 Hosts / Signup

Post by jasonm »

First off, thanks to all the hosts and people that came to a Ballers event in 2019! I had a great time running the league, and hope people enjoyed playing!

Looking forward to 2020, I'd like to get the hosts signed up again; similar to what we did last year (thanks Eric for kicking that thread off!). If you'd like to host a month: post here, text / call me, email; whatever! I try to leave it open ended -- so it's your call as the host on what works for you. Date, event times (doors open / league stat) and max number of people. Yes, there will be times we will conflict with other leagues or events, but sometimes that can't be helped. This league was always meant to just be "for fun" -- no ifpa, nothing serious, payout that night. And let's be honest, it's just about the dollar games anyway!

Also, if you are not on my email list, not sure you're on it, or want to be taken off -- let me know! I'll probably continue with the google calendar invite and then emailing the list I have after that. For some reason, emailing from the google invite after it's been created always causes an error. Oh well....

January - Chris S (Lake Geneva) - Sunday the 12th

February - Donovan and Katie (Fond du Lac) - Sunday the 9th

March - Neo - TBD

April - Skip [due to TPF and MGC back to back weekends]

May - Chris and Chateen (Madison) - TBD

June

July

August

September

October

November

December

Jason.

Thanks for carrying the torch. You have done a great job and I like the expanded format. I’m looking forward to another great year.

Thanks to all those that host and come to events. It’s always so much fun.

So I can do Saturday Jan 11th in the evening or Sunday Jan 12th in the afternoon. I’m fine with either one. People let me know what you like better.

Also. This is all TBD. With Spudlite coming the first week in Feb, I may have to bail if he comes early. That would be the only reason for me canceling. I say we take the chance on it since that will most likely will be the only month I can host this year between Spudlite and work this spring and summer.

I guess I have to throw away all these "dollar game" jokes I wrote last night. Damn.

We can host again this year. I don't want to commit to a month quite yet... I've got a bunch of busted pins (I'm lazy) that I need to fix, and I'm not sure what/when I'm going to flip stuff for R&M right now. The pinball situation at my house should be much more clear in a month or two when I can get off my butt and fix stuff up.

Eric and I will host a month, but I’m not sure when. Things are a little crazy here right now.

I'll put you down for March for now. If things change we'll adjust.

Man I was just over at Neo’s playing Cosmic Gunfighter and Mexico 68. He has an amazing collection of machines you just don’t see.

This one is not to be missed.
