    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Sweet! I call Barraka or Sub Zero when I head your way next.

    It might be Baraka vs Baraka lol he is my favorite

    #452 3 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Hey wizzardz! Think you'll make it to Lake Charles next Saturday?

    Don't think I'll be able to make it. As much as I'd like to (especially since Preston isn't supposed to show), unfortunately I have too many irons in the fire to get away.

    #453 3 years ago
    Quoted from PavBall:

    Is Allen on Pinside?

    He is but he isn't lol. He doesn't get on much like Preston doesn't. I don't get on much but I look like a maniac compared to Allen. hahaha

    Quoted from KingNine:

    He is but he isn't lol. He doesn't get on much like Preston doesn't. I don't get on much but I look like a maniac compared to Allen. hahaha

    Any word from Allen if he is still coming to the Romp in the Swamp?

    #455 3 years ago

    What games are you guys bringing to HAAG? Tiger and I are bringing our Quicksilver. Jodester has it running really nicely so we wanted to share it with everyone in Houston.

    #456 3 years ago

    We are just a few days away from the Romp in the Swamp. We currently have ten games set up and ready for tournament play (plus safe cracker which will only be utilized in the side tournament).

    We play tested Varkon last night. It will be a tournament game, set to three balls, it's playing really great.

    I don't know if IFPA keep records, but thats got to be a first. Varkon in a Tournament.

    You should see if you can add a high score at Twin Galaxies, who would be able to beat it?

    #458 3 years ago

    Yep! Varkon in a tournament, this will be interesting

    #459 3 years ago

    Allen said he is coming after he gets off work. Not sure when that will be. Sometimes he works till 3:00

    Tiger and Pav keep us posted if Romp in the swamp gets rained out. Radar looks like you guys are getting some heavy rain.

    We will be moving forward so long as the power stays on with whoever comes.

    #472 3 years ago

    Sounds good, I don't mind a little rain.

    #473 3 years ago

    A little rain is only refreshing, and rejuvenating in our case I am so excited about tomorrow!

    #474 3 years ago

    Romp in the swamp!

    I'd love to join you guys but my youngest daughter made HS volleyball team and wife would kick my ass if I missed Vball tourney

    You guys have a great time. I'll be following!

    #475 3 years ago

    I'm picking up a pin in the gulf coast area tomorrow morning and I was gonna try and come over for the tournament but the flooding is looking pretty bad. I'm going for the pin anyway so I'll check the road conditions when I p/u and still try to make it if possible

    Flooding is over rated. Go meet tithe gang!

    The bandit is in route to the swamp

    #482 3 years ago

    Nice BBB!

    #483 3 years ago

    I'm still trying to make it, fingers crossed.

    #484 3 years ago

    Hey everyone:

    The Romp in the Swamp is still happening today. If you can get here safely and trouble free please come.

    That said, many of our commitments are not able to make it. The tournament will be smaller than anticipated. We will hold a Romp in the Swamp II a bit sooner than anticipated since so many of our good friends are being rained out. I will discuss this with Jody tonight and let y'all know the date he wants to do the next event.

    Anyway, for those of you making it today we look forward to hosting you.

    #485 3 years ago

    Any chance of starting a little late, the washouts on 10 have got me running about 20-30 min late.

    #486 3 years ago

    Tiger looks like I'm out I started that way but had to head home not so much weather but something else came up at that I had to turn around for. Sorry I couldn't make it I wanted to

    #487 3 years ago

    Rerouted again, new ETA 5:30, go ahead and start without me.

    #488 3 years ago

    Apron of Destiny is here at Romp in the Swamp, and has already posted a high score during warm-ups.
    Boom!

    A Texas pinball player showed up to Romp in the Swamp.
    ...and he is drinking a Yuengling Lager. What is up with that. That is not even close to being a Lone Star beer.
    TigerLaw let's all kinds of people join in on the action.

    Thanks TigerLaw, Pavball, and Jodester for making this a Project Pinball charity fundraiser tournament. It's a Win-Win!

    Romp in the Swamp is a fundraiser tournament for Project Pinball.

    Looks like fun glad Allen made it. I hear Beaumont it getting very flooded right now.
    We just returned from whale watching and a glacier trip here in Alaska.
    Yesterday we took a train ride up into Canada.
    The trip has been awesome.
    Nice to see some pinball activities though.
    Good luck everyone.

    #493 3 years ago

    Really bummed that I am missing it. I got to Hammond and couldn't find a way around. Hopefully I'll be able to make it next time.

    #494 3 years ago

    Can't believe I had to mis it but in glad to hear you might be repeating it soon!!!!

    #495 3 years ago
    Quoted from fumbleflippers:

    Great to meet you fumbleflippers. Hope you enjoyed your time over here in SW LA, even though it was a lot of extra driving for you to get here.

    LA interstates and highways get blocked quite often for wrecks, but over the years only occasionally for high water.
    Those road closures in different parts of LA messed things up for at least 3 or 4 other people trying to get here for this charity fundraiser pinball tournament.

    #496 3 years ago

    Big thanks to everyone who made it and everyone who tried to make it. Special thanks to Jodester for being the tourney director.

    And, of course, congrats to Pinball-is-great for winning the main tourney and to Jodester for winning the side tourney! It was really a fun tourney and PavBall and I enjoyed hosting.

    All the machines held up great throughout the tourney. I don't believe we had so much as a single glass removing stuck ball during the entire six hour period.

    PavBall, Jodester and I will discuss possible dates for the Romp in the Swamp 2. As I mentioned earlier, due to the significant rain outs to our east and the absent Moncla Mafia members to our west, we will try and hold one more tourney here this year sometime.

    #497 3 years ago

    Our wonderful friend and tourney director Jodester. Thank you for everything!! I am so happy you won number one on Safe Cracker!!

    #498 3 years ago

    Thanks TigerLaw, had a great time at Romp in the Swamp!

    #499 3 years ago

    Allen clearly dominated throughout the tournament on Sorcerer. He won a game on it every match I believe.
    This machine came out in 1985, is fun to play, has great artwork, 2-ball multi-ball, and is a Mark Ritchie design.
    pinball_heaven_(resized).jpg
    It sure was fun having Allen in the tournament.
    He gets pretty wound up, and really gives his hat a hard time after a wicked ball drain.

    Varkon (1982) was an equalizer pinball machine for me during the tournament to help me win a few games.
    This early 80's machine has an upper and lower playfield, and is housed in a video arcade style cabinet.
    http://www.ipdb.org/search.pl?any=varkon&sortby=name&search=Search+Database&searchtype=quick
    Unknown if a Varkon has been used in other pinball tournaments, but since only 90 were ever produced, I'm fairly certain this is not a common occurrence, and is definitely the 1st time one was ever used in a Louisiana pinball tournament.

    Links to Fb to Romp in the Swamp tournament event.
    Jody posted a couple pics and tournament results here.
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/GulfCoastPinballClub/events/
    https://www.facebook.com/events/497251593810496/
    Sure was a fun tournament.
    Nice mix of machines spanning about 35 years from 1980 Quicksilver to newer Stern machines such as 2014 The Walking Dead.
