A clean 16 team bracket with tons of guest players from across the region. Thanks to Ron, Roger, Kim, Mike, Tony, and Cheryl for making the trip down south! It was great seeing Don P back on the table, and we're always excited to see when a Vikings home game brings TJ's game to town.
Dave and John have now won two straight. Anyone going to break their streak in December?

Special props and thanks to my partner TJ, who put on a show on as he carried me through the finals (including a game where he scored all 5 from the back....4 clean... but we'll absolutely count the push kick that Nate O blocked but ricocheted in to seal it). Amazing playing!
- Thanks to Jimmy, Suzie, Joey, Brandon and Jimmy's Pro Billiards for sponsoring and hosting the event, and for great service all night.
- Thanks to Matt H and Jim F for helping with sign ups.
- A HUGE thank you to Jessie D for running the bring and draw brackets. She did an amazing job keeping it rolling through the Cup final, and we wrapped up the draw by midnight.
- Thanks to Tom H for providing his home table for our peak foosball month (we'll see you after the honeymoon!).
- Thanks as always to the 40 plus foosers that showed up to make the event such a success! The talent, sportsmanship, and camaraderie of our scene is on display every month with the great players in this scene and it makes the hard work of running these things worth it each time!
See you all back at Jimmy's on Wednesday 11/21 for the big Thanksgiving Eve Draw Your Partner, and at MN Cup 2019.
