And the Winner Is… Nick Kahn!
30 minutes to go in Round 5. I thought I was home free. Then, my opponent shows up to play. She confidently kicks my butt.
One of my favorite things to see while working at the front desk is all the people who stare into the gallery but then decide not to enter. It’s like they are afraid to have fun, or they think that they aren’t allowed to have fun. Yes, art can be fun. And yes, you are allowed to be a part of that fun. Come play skee-ball!
Become a part of 2 works of art by visiting the gallery today. In addition to the usual skeeball games, Sal Randolph is typing up a “combat log” of the games. Also, it’s a great opportunity to see a manual typewriter in the flesh.
I tried playing a few games on my knees today, as suggested by the internet. Didn’t work. Luckily, I realized that before playing my official game for round 2.
Wanna know some skeeball strategy secrets? I am a bit wary of sharing these while I’m still in the tournament, but it would be a shame if I waited until I got knocked out and then ended up winning the tournament and never sharing these tips:
- Being short is key, so try playing while on your knees.
- Bank shots, once you find your lane’s sweet spot, can increase consistency.
- Try sliding the ball like in air hockey rather than tossing it like in bowling.
At least, those are all tips that these guys recommend – http://www.inflatablekingdom.com/events/skee-ball-tips-tricks-and-info-for-skee-ball-enthusiasts/
Well that’s it for today. Remember that even though we haven’t emailed you yet, the 2nd round has begun and you CAN record your 2nd round scores now. A few people already have.
You’d think that CFG staff would have a huge advantage in this tournament because we’re in the gallery all the time. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case for me so far. Every time I’ve been working at And The Winner Is…, all the machines have been busy almost constantly and I’ve been spending all my time busy at the desk. If only less people would show up, maybe I’d get a break to practice my skee-ball skills…
