    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Who ended up driving?

    Me of course.
    Dennis is getting old faster. Lol
    But I have to congratulate him on his first tourney win for first place.
    That was a lot of pinball.

    #652 3 years ago

    Nevus put on a great tourney. Such a nice gameroom, collection, brisket, and host. Hopefully it will encourage him to have more tourneys there.

    I wish we could have stayed for the finish - sounds like it was a good one. We had a great time while we were there and I got to leave a couple marks on the Safe Cracker.

    Hulk-like trophy figure likes view from shelf!

    Quoted from Arcade:

    At least he had a coloring book to keep his mind sharp on the drive home! Haha!

    Big congrats to Dennis. I'm shocked that's the first tourney he won, he played awesome all day.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I'm guessing its because its the first where Preston wasn't also playing. I bet he has lots of 2nd place trophies.

    You should come to Romp in the Swamp II and try and defend that trophy! Romp in the Swamp II, will feature Assualt the Vault III as the side tourney (same format Nevus used).

    Romp in the Swamp II is the next big Louisiana tourney - Lake Charles, October 8th! Contact Jodester, the tourney director, for info on the Lake Charles tourney.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Gonna try. The day trips to Shreveport and NOLA are long enough. Would have to make a trip to Lake Charles an over-nighter given the drive.

    #657 3 years ago

    Well, the real downside of that tourney for me is now I want a BBB... That game is really awesome in a home setting.

    I got a great score on it late in the night. Number one score:

    Tube dancer will be back on stage this week. No cover charge!

    Henry was helpful with the post tourney shopping today.

    #659 3 years ago

    Henry was a blast.
    Had a great time playing pinball with/against him.
    Already a great player who will only get better.

    Totally right. Henry had a good tourney. Future Louisiana state champion there for sure.

    Well, I never in a million years thought this would happen.
    But yesterday my wife asked me if I wanted to go the the Chicago Pinball Expo for my birthday.
    Wait,what?
    Did I just hear that?
    Now I have a hotel, plane tickets for myself and Preston and the biggest smile you could imagine.
    We will get to take the Stern Factory tour. See the reveal of Batman 66, JJP game 3, Alien, Attack from Mars and attend the Stern Epic Party with Adam West and Ed Robertson and attend the big banquet. Not to mention all the cool seminars and everyone associated with the hobby.
    Still not believing it is all real.

    So True.

    My wife, who could care less about pinball, is beyond awesome.

    #668 3 years ago

    Sill amazed that we got to play a BBB, a SC, an AMH pinball machine, and others, all in excellent condition, in a pinball tournament in Louisiana. Really cool. Thanks Nevus! I had a great time (except for LSU losing).

    #669 3 years ago

    So, today, on our Saturday between pinball tournaments, PavBall and I went and picked up our new family pet.

    Please meet Megatron, the standard poodle.

    #671 3 years ago

    Yep, Megatron will be the mascot of Romp in the Swamp II. He's ready.

    I registered my Centigrade 37 and Medieval Madness for the 2017 Texas Pinball Festival. Let's get the Arklatex and Gulf Coast groups together again at the show.

    Live Ghostbusters Premium pinball stream tonight. 9:00 P.M. CST
    http://www.twitch.tv/thepinballmafia
    Join in the fun and ask any questions you may have live.

    Game has build date of Sept 19th.
    No playfield date stamp.
    All inserts still perfect and drop targets working really well. Almost no rejections.
    So far we have added a Shaker motor, color captive balls, Stern Side art, speaker grill lights and cut out, and an airball protector plastic.

    I went ahead and opened up an event page for Romp in the Swamp 2 so we can get an idea of who all is coming:

    #675 3 years ago

    If we are gonna pick teams, I'll take Megatron on my team. He will help out a lot distracting players on the other team.

    Just something fun to do on Sunday nights.

    Trying to figure out what to do with Megatron. Do y'all have a little patio place out back where a poodle puppy might hangout safely on a leash?

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Yes.
    Just keep in mind our yard is massive and not fenced everywhere.

    Hmm, this is one part of the puzzle PavBall and I need to figure out for Sunday. Perhaps we bring his crate with us.

    #683 3 years ago

    I'll help keep an eye on Megatron, take him for a walk outside, make sure he has water, etc. Temperatures outside should be nice this weekend.

    #684 3 years ago

    Lsu vs Fla football game has been postponed due to hurricane. So the Lsu game will not be going on during the Sat pinball tournament. Resched date/time not set yet.

    #685 3 years ago

    Yes, Nevus, count me in for bringing a game to TPF as part of Ark-La-Tex!

    #686 3 years ago

    Getting in some practice muahaahaahaaaa

    That would be perfect. We will see if you still agree after Saturday!

    Megatron is doing great by the way. He is one happy dog, he is interfering with my practice schedule though. If I suck this weekend I'm blaming him.

    Awesome.

    I missed my sons band halftime show for the tourney. At least I got to see him play pregame before I headed over to Jude's place.

    #692 3 years ago

    Thanks to everyone who came to the tourney, Megatron had a great weekend!

    It was a great tourney Leon. Thanks to you guys for hosting. All the machines played well although pulling the side post on GoT and the flipper post in Spiderman were murder.

    Agreed.
    But we had to get people home at a decent hour.
    Nice to have people from as far away as Corpus Christi, Austin and Boston.
    Would have been super cool if Mark Henderson's son Josh Henderson had been in town.
    We had some awesome talent his weekend.
    Lee was a pinball playing machine.
