Another fab night at MYC on the f4f Tornado included Tom Curtis fresh from getting a load of points at Oxford and visiting foosball superstars Sarah B and Joe B. Also the local Olchfa school crowd, Cameron, Lewis, Matt , Ben and David and three MYC locals, Porkie, Garry and Pam.

We had 3 events, a double elimination singles first to 5, a double elimination DYP first to 5 and a Hereford v’s Swansea doubles grudge match first to 9.

In the singles event, Joe sent Tom C into the looser bracket, and then Local hero Matt sent Joe B and Sarah B into the looser bracket….wow! Naturally I’d been there some time already :D - well done Ben. In a close and tense final Matt overcame Joe. Well done Matt. Matt tried to stay calm and look cool, but we all know he was totally chuffed over the moon city.

In the doubles event Me and Matt just lost out to Tom C and David in the final. Well done David. The lack of a Hereford player in the doubles (DYP) final lead to a grudge match where me and Tom took on Joe and Sarah first to 9. At 8-2 all was going swimmingly and then Tom decides to switch for some 3 bar action. At 8-7 he was still confident, and rightly so because he did finally manage to score the winning goal somehow despite Sarah’s attempts to distract him through numerous means including trying to get him drunk. Swansea 1 Hereford 0.

When the bar closed it was all back to hotel Jinxsi for beer and pizza. Joe, Sarah and Tom stayed over and my 9 year old Olivia gave them all a Garlando lesson this am over tea and toast. Good times indeed.

Haha cheers for the comments guys, I had an absolutely wicked night! Definitely wasn’t expecting the standard that I saw, and you all rightfully put me into place rather quickly! Hehe. The atmosphere and the banter was spot on, and I especially enjoyed the hotel Jinksi beer and pizza times .

I recommend anyone around the area to go along, I guarantee you’ll be made to feel very welcome-but rubbish at foos hehe. I defo hope to come again soon so Olivia can show me how to play  and I get someone drunk enough to beat hehe.

Thanks again! X x

Haha, if the drunk enough comment was aimed at me then you just have to turn up a few minutes before closing because 1 drink tends to do the trick haha!

I Really hope you guys come down again soon, and we can come up to you some time which would be awesome as well.

Luck clearly har har har. Matt should totally get an account on here.
My footy match is at 3pm on sunday so it really depends on how long the match goes on for, then for me to get home, showered and then up to the club.

Can you talk to the Olchfa crowd about Sunday and arrange a time and then just let me know, I can get there anytime.

Hey Tom RS footy 200 quid from Boris, you said you were looking for a table...I'd like to buy one myself and put it in the club on free play but I imagine by the time I talk to all the committees involved they'll all be solt.

Are the universities back yet cos if they are maybe we can get the swansea uni contingent down as well.

well if your football starts at 3 then you'll be finished by 5 then max 2 hours to shower and chill and then 7 - 7.30 at the club. I'll bring some double elimination charts and we can run an event. it would be cool to see how good the uni players are cos I am looking to take a 7 seater to Bristol and we need to book places

Just me and Tom at MYC tonight, so we played solid for about 3.5 hours on the tornado. First off we played the outstanding MYC title, first to 5 best of 3…..Tom won. Hopefully Matt will challenge Tom on Sunday for this title. Then we played the first to 9 title….Tom won. Then we invented a new event – the marathon, first to 9 best of 3…Tom won. (though, I did get a game). Then Tom slaughtered me at goalie wars, then he won at 5 bar wars, and then he won at “no slow” (ball not allowed to stop first to 5 best of 3). But then I won at 3 bar wars…hurrah! At last. Then we played who can get the ball into the smallest hole…and the result is obvious if you ever played Tom.
