    I got the pleasure of score keeping this year so I did not get a chance to take nearly as many pix as I usually do. But that is ok. I met some great people this year.

    Enjoy some PAPA 17 pix.

    Nice photos, but maybe consider deleting the one of the guy passed out. Pretty sure that's the janitor who busts his ass all day long and it feels cheap to put him out there for laughs.

    That's my favorite photo of the bunch.

    It's not a cheap laugh, it's a genuine part of the experience.

    That dude did bust his ass all day! He was in the restrooms going over everything for hours and hours, never stopping! He seemed pissed off, but he worked really hard!

    Here's a few that I took. I have some really cool panoramic shots, but they error when I try to upload them. I can't wait for March!

    I don't think he minds. We spoke quite a bit before he passed out and after. Hell I made sure he got his check from Elizabeth. He fell asleep in Gregg's chair but really was only asleep for about an hour... he could barely walk by the time the after party started...

    #15 9 years ago

    He's in bathroom for hours, busts his ass and can barely walk? Nice

    #16 9 years ago

    Another place to visit, that looks awesome. Cheers for the pics.

    #17 9 years ago

    Looks like pinball heaven. Thanks for the pics.

    Did you smack the guy who had his drink on the game? Dude wearing the goofy hat ?

    #18 9 years ago

    He is the hardest working guy there.. Expected to clean up after all of us pigs and smile as he does it. I don't know how he did it. I know 20 hours in two days on my feet doing score keeping was brutal on my legs. He was up and moving most of the 50+ hours he worked in four days. He was cleaning up the mess the food vendor left, this was probably around 8-8:30pm Sunday and he was hurting. Barely could walk.. carrying the bag to the trash bin... it burst and all this nasty stuff went all over the parking lot maybe 10-20 yards from the trash bin. He said screw it I can barely move, I will get it later.... Some one told him to have a seat and a beer... within 5 mins of sitting down he was out... and some kind folks cleaned up the mess for him. After all. He deserved the break....

    Looking at my photo on my phone it looks like he put the soda with the cap on it inside the PAPA supplied cup. Sure not ideal to have on the game. But a heck of a lot better than people with open cans or cups of liquid. When I am walking around taking photos I am John Q Public.. I am not part of the official PAPA staff so the best I can do if I see something that needs attention is to let a staff member know. But honestly all I saw was a bunch of great people having fun....

    I know the guy. I am 100% sure he set it there for like 2 seconds while he got a token out of his pocket. I'm hoping he reads this.

    thanks for the pictures!

    As it relates to the janitor, if he has no issue with the pic that is fine. The thing is that there is a difference in saying he did a great job and worked hard and posting a pic of him slumped over surrounded by beer bottles. The pic doesn't exactly look like a tribute and represent your description of him being a hard worker etc..

    Well if you weren't there you can't appreciate the picture. And I only see one bottle and one can of beer. Hardly shows him surrounded by bottles. Besides if you were to look closely you would see he passed out counting his tip money we gave him. Rubber band around a few fingers, money in the other hand. Cell phones in his lap. He didn't even really take more than a sip of beer... So what you think you see in the picture isn't what it appears to be.. He is NOT passed out drunk.... He is passed out from busting his ass... I know.. I was there....

    As Vid said.. no cheaps laughs.... Hell I got more laughs out of Josh Sharpe during the final rounds when the ball was going wild...Very entertaining final rounds in my opinion....

    John, thanks for the pics. And thank you for score keeping. I plan on volunteering for at least 1 shift in March. Its worth the $20 to me, and great to see people put up great scores.
    I have a question though!
    Does score keeping interfere with participating in the tournaments? Would you be excluded from any event you score keep?

    Absolutely! That guy was totally busting his ass every time I saw him and did a really nice job. I dropped a 5 into the tip jar the first day and really should have given more the following days.
