    Quoted from Leakyfaucet:

    TPF was awesome for a first pinball experience. It was great meeting the Moncla's mafia and playing a few rounds with Mike. Congrats to Preston! Can't wait to do it again! See yall soon.

    Thanks,
    You and your family were great to meet as well. Always nice to put faces to who I am talking with.
    We had such a great weekend and can't wait to do it all over again next year. Always sad when Sunday afternoon comes so fast.
    Anyway things went great in the tournament. Preston tied for 1st place in the qualifying round with Josh Henderson. Simply some of the best pinball playing I have ever seen this year. The competition was through the roof with talent.
    Preston ended up coming in 5th place and there were some epic battles. This group was so close in playing skills that there was a three way tie between Preston, Colin, and Garret on a best of three game match. They each ended up the round with 7 points each and had to have a playoff game.
    We had lots of people recognize us from our Twitch stream we do every Sunday night which was awesome, and we got to meet and talk with so many great people, I could not begin to name them all.
    Ed Robertson from the Bare Naked Lady's even recognized Preston and came over and started talking to him.
    Later on Dennis got Ed to do a video recording for his daughter Kelly who plays the guitar and pinball. (super cool).
    If any of my photos have transferred over from my phone I will post some below.

    Thanks for coming up and introducing yourself Leaky at TPF. Turns out it was a good thing I decided to wear my GCPC t-shirt on Sat.
    I guess Leaky saw that shirt and figured I must be one of the gang down in his area. I get such a kick out of your online name every time I see it. Leakyfaucet. Ha!

    I'm glad you were wearing the shirt too. I kept looking at people's pinside lanyards to see if I recognized their names.... never happened. Glad you get a kick out of the name, it's honestly a pet peeve of mine to see a leaking faucet, go figure.....

    Quoted from Nevus:

    Happy new year!
    Here is my New Years (Pinball) resolution.
    I would like to have a club calendar full of local and regional events to look forward to this year. Please copy and paste the schedule as you add to it.
    In 2016, I had a party in April and a Red River Replay in September. I'm ready to do, at least, that again this year. Dates are flexible for me. Mudflaps has 5 seriously beautiful games and he's just a few miles down the road from me now! Let's invite ourselves to his house.
    Lastly, some of us treaveled to other shows in 2016. The Moncla's went on a US tour. Henry and I went to Rocky Mountain. Let's do more of that. I would love to road trip to Atlanta this year and try the Southern Fried with some of our group.

    Wasn't able to make TPF due to TFND (the floor needed done) but almost done with that then on to the bathroom in the game room and I hope that 2017 will be the year I can have a open game room or tourney.

    #1158 2 years ago

    I am ready and willing to host a party or tournament. Both could include a crawfish boil if guests were willing to pitch in on costs. If not, you will have to settle for Briskit or Ribs.

    My open dates coming soon are April 22-23 and May 6-7.

    Current line up:

    Full Throttle
    Americas Most Haunted
    Ghostbuster Premium

    Yeah! We can go to my house and check out my porcelain clown doll collection.

    #1160 2 years ago

    Nevus,
    The May 6-7th weekend would work for me.
    If on May 6th, then I assume we could watch the Kentucky Derby on tv in the gameroom around 5 to 5:30pm?

    Were you able to get any from this yard sale a few weekends ago?

    #1162 2 years ago

    Nevus,
    If your taking a poll, I could do May 6th or 7th. April 22nd weekend is a no go for me.

    #1163 2 years ago

    As it stands right now, either date is fine for me!

    #1164 2 years ago

    May 6th is a no go for me

    Looks great all set up at your place.
    You will get a ton of enjoyment from that game, especially if you get the grabber working good.

    #1169 2 years ago

    RZ paid for, shipping Monday!!

    The stupid mods are costing me almost as much as the game.

    #1170 2 years ago

    AMH out on loan.
    Kiss comes to visit!

    Thanks to Mudflaps.

    Kiss will be awesome at the May tourney. I think we could do back to back tourneys. Sat at Nevis; Sun and Mudflaps.

    My collection is small and embarrassing next to Nevus. However, one of my games will feature a small bucket of plastic chicken.

    #1174 2 years ago

    Tiger, does that mean you and Pav can come?

    Heard from Jody?

    Hard to say. Our schedule has been rather unpredictable. Jody was out atv'ing today I believe. Will catch up with him tomorrow.

    Schedule update: April 2, 2017

    Here is the last one of these I found in the thread. It's a few months old. Last year I had a party in May and a tournament in September. If I'm reading correctly, James and the Moncla's are having tournaments in May. May 13-14 is Mother's Day and 2 birthdays here so I can't host or attend. Following is some too much coffee flight of ideas.

    So far, I only have about 4-5 that have replied they can attend on May 6. I'll be glad to have a party instead of tournament and just have an excuse for us to get together. Is there a minimum number for a tournament? If I proceed, I'll need to register soon with IFPA and pick a format. Please fill in / correct this calendar with your dates.

    (FYI) May 6-7 is our annual BAFB air show. It's identical shows Sat and Sun, weather permitting. It's a great show.

    Moncla's recently announed date for their Shoot Again tournament will be on Sun Apr 30th (if they got it registered in time).

    Hou Arcade and Pinball Expo is Oct 20-21, 2017. They moved it up into Oct due to a scheduling issue.

    Feel free to call Nevus to discuss your possible party/tournament in May.

    TigerLaw may be reschuling his late May tourney to another date (push to June ??).

    #1178 2 years ago

    Thanks Mike. I updated the calendar.

    #1179 2 years ago

    thanks for updating that Chris.

    Stinks for me as my job is going to have me on the road for a few weeks late April. So April 30 Shoot Again tournament. Bmt, TX is more then likely a no go.

    I have family coming in early May. So May 6 Red River Replay 2, Shreveport LA is more then likely a no go

    We have a grandchild due Mid April but we are thinking he will be here any day. I'm guessing my wife and mine anniversary the 7th. My wife thinks before then.

    Looks like my next one I can make will be May 27 Romp in the Swamp III, Lake Charles?

    #1180 2 years ago

    Depending on how many are interested, I may cancel my event. I'm always happy to open up the game room even for a small crowd, but we need 16 entries for an IFPA tournament. I have the impression several of the local guys aren't very interested.

    I think, so far, it's only Mike V, Action 76, Scottslash, Mudflaps, Henry and I.

    I would enjoy traveling to play. April 30 I have a cub scout camp out with Henry. I have no conflicts for May 27 as of now.

    #1183 2 years ago

    Update to schedule:

    I removed my event in May. Not much interest. I would enjoy attending the LC event. Tiger, is that confirmed?

    I'm going to check in with Pav today and see. I hope so, I'm getting pinball withdrawals from missing TPF.

    I know not a pinball but since Josh shared his find I had to share mine with the group. It's a 1954

    Yes sir its at its new home and thanks earlier for the help with the "leakyfaucet" all is good now. I'll send you a pm on that game latter. We have a grandchild due any day so have a feeling I will be Shreveport bound at any time.

    #1188 2 years ago

    Nice old car JAH. Looks cool.

    Congrats!
    I'm having my 4th child in 8 days!

    #1190 2 years ago

    Guys, not sure how many of you saw but I did PU an AC/DC premium the other day. While I'm improving my flipper skills, im definitely not tournament ready. However I would really like to watch some quality players to see if I can pick up some techniques. I can bring some "good beer" in exchange for some a few plays and letting me hang around for a while. I moved from Shreveport to Houston about a year ago and we need to work on Louisiana's idea of good beer... I'm thinking Albita ain't it... I may get a few tomatoes thrown my way for that but I do love a good IPA

    #1191 2 years ago

    Wow, 4th child! I had to quit at two! Congratulations!

    #1192 2 years ago
    Quoted from Spg101:

    Wow, 4th child! I had to quit at two! Congratulations!

    Thanks, 3 ( and 4)weren't planned but now can't imagine life without. All my kids love pinball and we all play together almost nightly.

    Quoted from Spg101:

    Yes!

    Quoted from Leakyfaucet:

    Yes!

    That's awesome, my son and I have many nightly pinball-offs. I would say WoZ off's but we have a second now. My office is so noisy now with two pins going you can't hear the call outs. I want to let you know, I got my daughter into ATVs, shooting and dirt bikes, my son didn't want anything to do with them. So there are blessings where you wouldn't think you would find them...

    #1194 2 years ago
    Quoted from Leakyfaucet:

    Congrats!
    I'm having my 4th child in 8 days!

    Thats really fast. Most folks need at least nine months between them.

    Congratulations. They get big fast!

    Just go to Arcade's and KingNine's pinball tournament in Beaumont, TX on Sun Apr 30th.
    You'll get to meet 20 to 30 players that enjoy pinball, and it's not a major tournament, so you don't need to feel all intimidated.
    They are having a main tournament, and also a side tournament that is pingolf format. We can explain it all to you when you get there.
    They have an event created on Facebook for it under the Gulf Coast Pinball Club group pg.

    #1197 2 years ago

    Thank you, I will plan to be there barring any unforeseen circumstances. We did win the chili cook-off at classic in sugarland this weekend with my recipe. 1st in spicy and 3rd in crowd favorite.

    You know the more I think about it I don't want to be the creep either wanting to watch other players ... do we have some good players on here now? That I am not,,, not that i'm lacking ambition just don't want to be the dork or creeper..

    I plan on going to the tournament at the end of the month in beaumont. It will be my first one to attend. I'm in no way, a good player. I watch YouTube videos for some tips but I love watching other people play and I'm not a creeper, and I doubt anyone will think you are either... so far everyone that I've met in this group is really nice and hospitable. I will be at the tourney to learn and get to know everyone better, not for stats.

    #1200 2 years ago

    You guys really should just consider entering both tournaments or at least the side tournament.
    I really don't know why you are feeling all timid about it all.
    No one is gonna yell in your face "I beat you".
    I mean, come on Spg, you're holding a 4 ft tall trophy.
    A couple reasons why we hold local/regional tournaments is just to have a reason to get together to play pinball, and to earn some IFPA ranking points for the current year. No big deal.

    Keep flippin.
