Re: Mike Fowler

So glad you were able to go. It is right we should have someone from the Foosball community, to remember the contribution that Mike made to our game, and to remember our friend.

Re: Mike Fowler

So sorry I will not be able to attend Mike’s farewell gig.
A group of us are going to the Bonzini World Championships in France, but we will raise a glass or two to remember Captain Snakey.

The Bricklayers Arms in Putney was were he started to gather a group of regular players. It was so nice to find that Table Football had a home, and it was down to Mik...

Re: HOFC & ICC 2016 Vegas Trip Report

Thank you Rich for taking the time to write that.
I watched some of the antics in the pits. It is a shame they had to be seen by anyone who happened to switch on. No a great advert for a Game we that we hope to attract new players to.

Save the Date? With only 6 weeks notice?
Some chance. Best of luck with that.

Ball ramp for a Tornado

Help needed to source a Ball Ramp for a Tornado table.
If that's not possible, I would appreciate a couple of decent photos of the said item with some dimensions so I can make one.
Most grateful for any help.

Re: Vintage Table on Gumtree

It looks like a Lilliput Table, and probably made in the fifties and not the thirties. The glass top is not original, and was probably added to stop the balls being stolen. I also think that £1500 is way over the top, but Brian Harms may no more..........

Re: Britfoos Forum or Facebook? Discussion

Thoughts from a distance. The player base at the moment is at a very low level. We seem to of lost the spark that makes people want to keep turning up for those big events. I believe that we have just taken a wrong direction for a couple of years. But for all the right reasons. It is great to see th...
