Thanks to Luch for hosting everyone again in his now more spacious basement. Expanding into a second room means more space to move, but it also means more space for pins, which I’m sure Mike will be filling in the coming months.
Happy new year to everyone, and welcome back to the second half of the season. Thanks to Andrew for hosting this week-it’s great to have him back as a host, and it was a good chance to play some really well restored games that aren’t as common for the league.
Thanks to Kim for hosting everyone for the last regular TOPL week of the year. We had a group of 20 regulars this week (both old and new members), and had plenty of time to give Kim’s games a workout.
Thanks to Eddie for once again hosting the league this week, and for keeping everyone fed through the night. Also, welcome to Jeff, who came out to his first league night this week, and welcome back to Jennifer, who was in from out of town for her semi-annual drop in league night.
Thanks to Adam for hosting this week, and for the usual food and hospitality. We had another good week with 20 people out, and at 1/3 of the way through the season we’ve had 41 players so far.
High scores for the week went to
Thanks to Chris for having everyone out to his place this week! The central location meant a big turnout, so almost all of his games were in league play. It’s also not often that a new pinball machine gets released these days, so the first chance at a new machine is always interesting. While the version of the Walking Dead that we played will probably bear little resemblance to what the “final” game turns out to be, it was still a fun machine with steep ramps and a pretty nasty prison magnet. While we couldn’t put everyone’s league group on the game (since we would have been there until midnight), at least just about everyone had a chance to get a shot at it in free play, and I’m also sure that this won’t be the last time we’re at Frolic’s.
Also, welcome to Mike, who made it out to his first TOPL night this week. Hope to see you out again!
Thanks again to Nick for having everyone out to his place this week, and to everyone who made it out despite the snow (which was more substantial the further north you got). We also had four new players this week, so welcome to Larry, Peter, Nick, and Eric (who has been out before, but it’s been a while).
Thanks again to Luch for the Pizza, Beer, and Pinball-always a great combination. We had another good turnout this week, with two new members-Stephan and Richard. Welcome to the league guys-hope to see you out again soon!
