Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of imbibing Beau's at the House of Targ, playing some decent pins with good pal, Jason/The Evener (and losing), and rockin' out to an awesome 'The Who' cover-band, The Start.

Good times.

.... despite the darn tornadoes. Sh!t happens, hope for the best.

Re: WTB SUper Chexx Ice

Keep in mind that the first one is a Chexx and not a Super Chexx. No shots on goal. But the same gameplay and, yes, same dome. http://pinrepair.com/arcade/chexx.htm Also, the Chexx base does NOT split and has a footprint of 36" square. This has proved annoyingly difficult to get down basement s...
