Hi guys,

Thanks for all of interest in the previous post regarding a residential club in Brisbane. It was really positive and great to see that others are also happy to host future meets. I have emailed with Dan Robar and he says it sounds great so should be fine for IFPA endorsement. Please see previous thread for details on end of year prizes http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthread.php/70503-A-Residential-Style-League-Club-in-Brisbane-2015/page2 . For a name, I thought Houseball suits, let me know if any objections.

The first meet will be held at my place at Kangaroo Point on Saturday the 31st of January. The tournament will kick off at 6PM but feel free to come round anytime after 5PM for a drink and to have a bit of practice. We will have to finish up by 10PM at the latest. Please PM for address or any other details or contact me on my mobile 0401 879 301. The lineup for the night will be:

Stern Star Trek Pro
Gottlieb Sinbad
Gottlieb Buck Rogers
Gottlieb Pinball Pool
Gottlieb Charlies Angels

I hope you will enjoy playing the System 1 Gottlieb's - I think they're great games. Once we have an idea of numbers I'll organise pizza for the night. BYO alcohol.

Please PM me or text/call me if you would like to attend or have any questions. Please also PM me if you would be interested in hosting the second meet. Thanks very much and looking forward to it!

Cheers
Jack

Haha no, I just put two and two together (playing pinball at peoples' houses). Also, isn't 'house ball' a term for when a ball goes straight down the middle from a plunge without even getting a flipper on it?

Yes, exactly. So the name is twofold.
Early in the year Richard was adamantly pitching the idea of a name change from Wildball to Houseball. It didn't happen because I think many of the members were fond of their name, but I'm sure he will be happy to learn that someone is using the name. hehe. :D

Ah man sorry haha I didn't mean to plagiarise. I can change the name to something else if RGR would like.

All good to go ahead Dunc. Anyone who has replied to the thread or has PM'd is locked in. I'll have to cap it at 32 if we get up to that many. Looking forward to the first meet and to future meets throughout the year. Hopefully we can successfully replicate Wildball in Brisbane.

Had a blast, drank beer and sucked at pinball as per usual. Well done on a great meet Jack and Sally, it was well organised and a lot of fun. I didn't check, but I am pretty damn sure I would have posted the lowest score on Pinball Pool :)

Hey hutch,

A left field curiosity question...

Do you and Sally have any affinity to

this song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1tAYmMjLdY)?

I don't particularly like the band or their style of music, but their song above is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.

I so much wanted to make it to your place on the weekend to play some pinnys and have a bit of fun, but the ****ry I was born in, and have never left, excludes me from buying a plane ticket to anywhere.

I'm really cranky, but reading all the nice words in this Thread about 'Jack and Sally', alleviates my crankiness because it reminds me of a beautiful song.

Cheers,

G
