I’m sorry to say that we are cancelling the Summer season at Lyman’s Tavern due to limited player interest at that location. Since this is the second season in a row that this has happened, I expect we’ll take a break from leagues at that location for awhile.
But fear not, Lyman’s fans! It’s still a cool bar with a great pin lineup, including Aerosmith, Ghostbusters, and the ever-popular Pabst Can Crusher! So instead of a full FSPA league season, we’ll be trying some mini-tournament events there to see if those are a better fit. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements about that.
Meanwhile, it’s not too late for would-be Lyman’s players to join one of the other FSPA league locations this season… VÜK in Bethesda, MD is the closest choice geographically, and that location also enjoys decent Metrorail access via the Bethesda station. Or choose any of our other leagues that catch your eye.
Huge thanks to Ed Most and his entire family for hosting the FSPA party in their gorgeous home! Ed, your hospitality is terrific, and so is your game collection! Looked to me like everyone had a great time. On behalf of the whole league, we really appreciate it!
Congrats to Dave Hubbard for taking down the Two Minutes to Midnight prize with a time of 1:27.91. Denice Thornton (1:41.44) and Jason Bell (1:48.25) were hot on Dave’s tail. Also congrats to Ed “Home Field Advantage” Most for winning the Frozen Flipper challenge with a dominating score of 1,331. Steve Stakem had been leading the pack most of the day with his score of 792, with Caroline Creekman next up with 734. (And though I tease Ed about home field advantage, the truth is that he had no idea what the party contests were until they started, so it’s not like he was practicing!) Party contest prizes this time were FSPA 20th anniversary T-shirts, courtesy of the VBH league.
And that’s officially a wrap on the Spring season!
