Again, BIG THANKS to to Keith (Arcade Doctor) for putting this on! It was a blast to compete and more competitors should enter next year! If you didn't get a chance to play them, I should also mention that the games Keith brought for the tournament were in amazing physical and mechanical condition! It was a treat to be able to play these games, especially that gorgeous GREEN frogger!

Also, thanks to LittleWest (Bradley) for volunteering and recording scores ALL DAY Saturday!

Nice work gentlemen!

I want to thank Keith for having the contest, I just wish more people had signed up. I hadnt intended on competing myself, but when I saw the lineup I couldnt resist, even though I havent physically touched a Missle Command in 20+ years ???

I got as much enjoyment out of watching Steve, Doug and David playing as I did working the controls myself. All the games had a 20 minute time limit on them and I think the only time it came into play was on Steves 1 and only game of frogger, which no one could ever come close to.

Like Steve was saying, all of Keiths machine were FANTASTIC, beautiful cabinets, bright monitors, tight controls, very fun to play. After playing all day Saturday I even went back and got some more time on them after the tourniment

One of my favorite moments of the weekend came when my time expired on Frogger and littlewest was standing right next to me and said, "Sir. Please step away from the game now."

Classic!

I hadn't planned on competing as I am a very average player on most games.  I figured I would give it a try though since there wasn't that many people who signed up and I wanted to support the cause.  I didn't even know there were cash prizes until it was almost over!  Not that I could have done much better on my scores but sure would have tried harder.  It was a really good time though and I'm glad I did give it a shot.

I'm in the same boat as Doug.  I didn't plan on participating, but I'm glad I did.  It was fun.  I was surprised to find that I faired OK on a couple games.  Thanks for organizing it!

I loved that frogger machine, joystick was amazing, but I always though 3 frogs was tournament, I guess its 5? I managed 38k after the tournament on it which is my personal best!

That is funny. I remember having to say that bitd when I was trying to get someone off a machine so I could play.

Congrats to the winners!

I would have liked to participate but had other obligations on Saturday.  I'm sure there were others so maybe next year we can double the participation.
