    324 best, average 339. I'm 51 too.
    Maybe it is the few days I'm younger than you or the beers I had on the way home at the Gremily!?
    Interestingly, every attempt since has been higher individually and on average.

    I have propelled the ball along the proper trajectory and been rewarded

    So the above was last night on my iPad after the equivalent of 1 standard drink in the system.
    This morning at work on the PC with a mouse and the equivalent of 1 standard coffee in the system.

    218 best, average 248.

    I reckon the use of the mouse makes a big difference.

    Next time we meet Nick for sure. Not sure when I'll get to a Melbourne meet or comp though.

    Just really curious, I have played pinball since my early teens and have always considered them a reflex machine. Quick reflexes, you play well.
    I figure the reverse as well, you play pinball, you will improve your reflexes. For this reason I ask, all you pinball players that play regularly, do you think these quicker reflexes from excising them playing pinball has increased your reflex times in real life?
    I believe in my case it certainly has.
