And start it up all over again

Happy Christmas, dear bunny_hugger. With you it must be.


OK, it wasn't a frantic week on my mathematics blog. It was as low-impact as they get but I need low impact right now. Here's what you might have seen there:

And I bet you'd like to be able to answer the question What's Going On In Judge Parker? for October - December 2017 and I'm the one who can fill you in. Now back to Texas:

Trophies for the International Flipper Pinball Association's national championship. We were not up for this, but one of the guys we were there with, ADM, was.

Trophies for the International Flipper Pinball Association Pin Masters side tournament, a two-day pin-golf match that would be all the competitive pinball I'd get to play.


SAM_0171.jpg

National Championship trophy, festooned with miniature state flags. And I like that Michigan and New Jersey get represented on the front there.

Instructions! Josh Sharpe lays down the rules for the world and women's championship play.

What they play for: the Key to all the Stern Games. I have no idea where this went.

And who they are playing: the brackets for the United States pinball championship. I knew three of these people! Two of them could even recognize me! And went to college at the same time as Sean ``The Storm'' Grant, New York's representative and the number 3(?) seed there.
