Should be able to make it this week.

Will arrive just after you have lifted and levelled the Fireball table.

Hi Bren, we should manage this end but I will give you a ring if we need a hand.

Good night last Friday.

FIREBALL FEEDBACK -

I really liked this table, the bars were nice and light, ball control was top notch.

Love the build quality and I was really getting into the banking and slingshot options.

This table has re-awakened my love for foosball again.

Paddy,

I really liked the table too and believe it gives us more variety and interest.
My only downside is that it has some of the same random/pinball effect that Tornado Tables have.
But the UPS far outweigh the Downs.

We are currently gaining more players and this new table can only add to the interest.

Thanks to Chris for getting a great deal for us and for installing the table.



Cheers,
Bill

Another super night of table football, really enjoying the mix of garlando and fireball. Finding it very interesting how everyone is adapting to the new table.

Just a cryptic reminder for this week
in honour of the regular crossworders at the Royal Oak

Reasons to come this week are:

Command sphere, explosion (8)
Judy has nothing (8)
Crusoe's friend wins, the regular Royal Oak event (5,6)

Which of course means there will be food, (a variety of) foosball and fun.

My guesses
Batman & Robin are coming with some little green men.
The Fireball table is going to spontaneously combust.
We are going to drink all the Vimto in the pub.

Good night yesterday -

11 in attendance
Alina
Blake
Bill
Brendan
Chris
Dom
Errol
Mark
Paul
Roger
Tony

The first competition was the closest ever - all teams either won 3 lost 2; or won 2 lost 3.
Maybe the compulsory Hallowe'en masks evened matters up!

I'll try to get some photos uploaded.

Next Week - First Friday, PYP and Pork & Stuffing Batches!
(Please let me know if Veggie Option Required)

Cheers,
Bill

Me, Potts, Sarah and maybe two more or so from Keele will be popping down on Friday!

Would it be possible to bring along Laura's coat that she left there ages ago so we can give it back to her :D


Cheers and see you all Friday,

I really hope this is not the ladies coat that was given to Jody for a prize the other month.

Bill?

It'll be fantastic to see the Keelites on Friday.
Please note we now have a Fireball Table as well as the Garlando.

I'll bring Laura's coat.

Best Regards,
Bill

It is the partnered first friday event. I hope to make it to demonstrate the swerve shot, if we come we will probably bring Alex along as well, thus conveniently making an odd number for a bring your partner event!!
