I will be updating the site this week to address plans for
PAPA 9, among other things. Of course, I welcome feedback here
or via e-mail as well. I also have some pictures I'm sorting,
which will be posted on the site with captions soon.

Thanks go out to everyone who attended, everyone who volunteered,
and everyone who played! It couldn't happen without you!

Memorable moments include Bowen's one-handed LITZ on TZ, and of
course, Keefer's Addams Family incident...

    Just wanted to say that, in addition to being amazed at the speed and
    quality with which you were able to rebuild the facility, I was quite
    pleased by the improved organization (at least in C division which is
    the only place I can speak from experience). I thought it ran much
    more smoothly than last year.

    Thanks to everyone who put in the time and effort to make this thing
    happen.

    I don't think anyone did. We were pleased to just quickly make
    the problem disappear. Although next year we're assigning a
    videographer to tail you 24x7 ;)

    For the record, Keith tapped the lockdown bar in frustration
    after a drain on Addams Family. He does this often and is not
    pounding it, just a tap. The playfield glass, which turned out
    to be plate rather than tempered, shattered quite stunningly.

    Nobody was hurt, and the game was back in service after 15-20
    minutes of cleanup, but tempered would have been less likely to
    break, and definitely would not have been dangerous to anyone.

    The only reason any game had plate glass was if it was sold to
    us that way and we didn't notice. We have a decent stock of new
    tempered glass we use to replace plate glass, or scratched glass.

    Two words: "Casino Camera"

    Does that mean a future Stern game will feature a mode called "Keith's
    Iron Fist"?

    That could be worked into the Marvel Universe pin as Iron Fist was a
    cool 70s kung-fu character.
