I know it’s been quiet here. I regret that I have not been able to try to organize more events; I had hoped to put something together before the end of the year but it apparently just wasn’t meant to be. I would like to acknowledge the ownership at Speedy’s and their willingness to host events in the past. Unfortunately, judging by the (distinct lack of) attendance, it just wasn’t going to work out.
Anyway, a new year brings new beginnings. The Bayou City Pinball League is starting 2022 with a non-tournament, non-competitive social gathering.
Where: Little Dipper, 304 Main Street, Houston, TX
3 24, 7:00pm until we get tired of playing (likely to be at least 10:00 pm, bar closes at 2:00am).
Who: Anyone currently in good standing with the Bayou City Pinball League, 21 or over.
Why: To meet, greet, and play some pinball in preparation for the following months’ tournaments (to be announced shortly).
What pinball games: Spider-Man (Stern), Family Guy, The Walking Dead, The Machine: Bride of Pin-Bot
What to bring: Quarters for games (bar can make change for smaller bills, $1 or $5; all games are 50¢ per play). Credit/debit card for drinks (bar is cashless for drinks). A positive attitude, a great personality, and a willingness to make new friends (of course).
I realize this is a 21+ venue; I do have plans for events where younger players will be welcome in the futrure.
