That is always on the cards. Less chance of tilting and bashing the ball around.

Just returned from visiting the venue. If not for the comp, it is worth leaving the loungeroom and just having a look. Last time I saw so many stunning machines lined up was last century. Blown away.

Apologies for the late update.

This is the third year of the Greg Berry Junior Cup, the kids' comp held in Greg's honor. It was held at the Golden Fleece Hotel, as part of the Argonaut's Pinball Club and the Matchplay Melbourne Comp - the largest in Victoria.

The kids were there on time, and had the following games in the Comp - Aerosmith, Metallica, Game of Thrones and Medieval Madness - all in pristine condition.

Here's what they were competing for - Every year we change the game on the trophy. This year - Big Bang Bar ;



The kids during the competition ;







Group photo of all the kids that competed ;





The Winners ;

1st place - Zack
2nd Place - Emily
3rd Place - Nathan
4th Place - Ryan




Congrats to all the kids that took part - all kids left with either a trophy, a Stern cap, or a medal.

Thanks to Nikki and Geoff for helping out.

Some feedback on the Kids Comp - The game between Zack and Nathan was considered to be one of the highlights of the entire 4 days of competition. On a side note, Zack Foster finished THIRD in the main competition.
