    Seawitch and Space Station look like being the arenas for this time around

    Edit: Developments led to these games not being available for the entire period. Twilight Zone and Maverick are good to take their place though

                        It was great to see a couple of new players turning out for some pinball entertainment! . We had Dion, fairly new to the area, and enjoys flipping the silver ball, as well as the youngest of generations Tyler. The young lad has developed some flipper skills... and can trap like a demon!

                        Dion works up a score on Batman...

                        Tyler demonstrates how to collect Jackpots...

                        Dion, Andrew and Steve battling it out on Twilight Zone...

                        Nudging isn't as easy from a stool...

                        Swords! ... Challenge Me!

                        Rough drains are agonizing, even for young players!

                        It was a great day, and thankfully no machine issues!

                        The results have now been submitted to the IFPA.
