It was a great time yesterday and every time before that too.  It is always awesome hanging out with the Florida collectors in that setting.  I have a video to post later.  Any idea who won the tournament?  It was too late for me to stay!

More later...

Finals were extremely competitive at this tourney and it took a LONG time to play the rounds. (Which was good to be able to play the games rather than the games playing us).  It was a lot of fun playing a brand new Stern Mustang machine for the first time in a tourney. 

Qualifying was tough as expected. With only 8 slots, the competition was heated with many great Florida players missing the 8 player cutoff.  Great matches in the quarter and semi finals rounds and congrats to my fellow final 4 players Howard, Joe and Dan C.  I enjoy playing with everyone as always.

See everyone at the Asylum in late May.

Jeff

Thanks to Curly for all of these events over the years!  If it really was the final year then it will be missed!!!  We had a blast as always and it was great seeing everyone!

And of course thanks to Curly and Diane for another great event and thanks to all of the volunteers who made it possible. 

Great turnout. Without a doubt, an event that will be missed by many in the community.

Jackie and I had a great time also!  It was a blast to play all those different games.  Had so much practice, ended up  breaking the high score at home on our Grand Prix.   :)  On Sunday of course.  We were wiped out after driving up and back in a day.

Thanks again Curly and everyone that made it happen!  You guys ROCK!!!!

See ya at the next one!
Melanie and Jackie

First I want to thank everyone for coming to our event, it is great seeing everyone enjoying themselves.  I wish I could have kept this event going, but as they say everything must come to a end.  All those that volunteered, I can not thank you enough.  You Guys Rock
