Wow what a long week its been for me. Trying to make sure all the cards fell into place. It all started back in October when the idea struck me for the GO FOR THE GOLD tourney. Since then there was a lot of planning to make it all come together. The objective was to have a tourney where anyone who loved foosball could play, with big payouts, T-shirts, fliers, prizes, gold and silver coins, extra tables, and the help needed to run a FUN! Promotional type tourney where everyone at any skill level had a chance to bring home some cash and prizes and good memories, without the trophies and money going to the few great players who win every time they play. Win or lose I tried to send something home with everyone especially the under 21 players, the noobs, women, beginners, amateurs, the old schoolers etc. I hope everyone had a great time and if there is anyway that you think I could make it better I welcome your comments, because this will be an annual event designed to give back to the players some of your investment in the weekly tourneys at PRIMETIME.
Unfortunately during the clean-up and tear down of the event the results of the final DYP as well as some t-shirt orders were lost (if you wanted a t-shirt I will make it for you just let me know). Heres what I know, and players help me out with the rest.

The under 21 event
1st place Josh trophy and silver coin
2nd place Amanda trophy and silver coin

Beginner/Amateur BYP/DYP
1st Luke + Whales Silver coins and trophies
2nd Brian + Gene P trophies
3rd Paul + Moose
4th Matt L + Larry
5th+6th Steven + Dick, Mike + Andy
Gold coin Mystery prize Brad P

Super DYP
1st Dillon + Zahn Gold and $500
2nd Matt G + Mike Silver and $250
3rd Tom E. + Whales $150
4th Gene M + Krinkie $100
5th Jansen + Cory $50
6th Gene P + John W $50

I want to thank you all so much for helping and coming to this event especially these people.
Kim my girlfriend and Amanda my daughter who helped set up and get things ready.

Jesse for helping Amanda and Myself getting players to the tables and looking for people etc.

I'll add a few that I remember from the super dyp
Dillon was playing with Chad Zahn
Matt Growth was playing with a new guy I don't recall his name
Gene Paddock And I (team"If we block you long enough 10 balls will find a way into your net" were 5,6
Along with Brian Janson and Gary
I don't remember fourth place they had to play Egan and Whales after us. I blanked it out.

Tim, thanks again for everything you do for foosball. It was a FUN tourney. Hope you have this every year.

Like I've said before, the best part of my game is my partner-picking abilities. Whales played awesome nets last night. Thanks for playin with me Mikey!

Although Enzyte may help some individuals, it does not influence "performance"...just the equipment some men play with. Give a 10 year old boy a top-of-the-line bat and he has the best equipment...it doesn't mean he's a player in the homerun derby if you know what I'm sayin'?

Needless to say, I've been a champion homerun hitter with a Demarini for quite some time.

Bill, Slim Fast is only performance enhancing if it helps one's wrist rotate the handle faster on a roll-over. So in your case, you shouldn't have any problems.

I ****ing hate enzyte!
Never trust a commercial with some dumb bimbo saying "it's real science". (Ask me for this impression in person-I sound just like her!)
Or a commercial that repeats "a pill, that can make a man larger" 15 times in 30 seconds. It's a psychological ploy to take advantage of the gullible. At best you may get some benefit from the placebo effect.
Every 5 years or so a new one of these products pops up for people that want to try something.

Who am I kidding, I'm just pissed it didn't work for me. Joke, just kidding.

If your not satisfied with your junk, get Viagra.

And good job Tim. Had to work so I didn't make it.
