News, events, announcements and gossip... Directly from our gameroom, these short posts are intended to keep you up to date!
A fresh new season under the same leaking roof
After a short summer break, caused by the high temperatures that make it less comfortable to play in our gameroom, it looks like the pinball season in the Koog has begun again!
People are starting to find their ways to the Koog for our Friday Night Pinball
again. Little has changed to both the concept or the collection, since before our summer break; The concept still being "approximately 20 machines on free play and a lot of nice people to play against and talk to
", and the collection
hasn't undergone any mayor changes in the last couple of months.
The roof, the roof...
The biggest problem at the moment is still the leaking roof. Heavy rain can really spoil the fun as part of the gameroom must then be closed and the machines covered with plastic sheats. We are planning to do a complete refurnishing job in the gameroom, somewhere next month. Hopefully we will be done before the start of the competition, depending on wether the roof will be repaired by then.
Travelling pinball fans, welcome!
Fortunately, this friday the weather was good and the complete collection of pinball machines playable again. Amongst the vistors there were some foreign guests (from Scotland and Germany) who, after reading about Friday Night Pinball here on the site, wanted to come over and see (and play) the collection. They combined their visit to the Koog with vacation or business plans. Perhaps a good idea for our other readers?
Koog Competition, 3th edition
In november the 3th edition of our own Koog Competition starts. [oktober update: Competition starts in januari 2005]
A completely new playing system, some new players, a couple of new machines and hopefuly a completely new roof. Right now, we are working on the software that will be used to make a better organisation with the new rules possible. The players from last year will get an e-mail with more information and a request to sign up soon. New players can send an e-mail too our Koog Competition Information
for more information or to sign up. The requests will be prossesed by the "first in" rules.
As said earlier, the next couple of weeks will see some changes for the Koog (besides the new roof) so stay tuned. Let us know if you have any suggestions or if you would like information about the Koog.
