Wow! What an amazing event. Participation in our inaugural women’s tournament exceeded expectations with 45 women battling it out. We would like to thank all the Space City League members who contributed games for our mega-booth as well as Titan Pinball who loaned us a game so we could include more players. Titan, Eight Bit Dreams and Speedy’s also contributed prizes. We would especially like to thank Jennings Orthodontics for sponsoring the event. Congratulations to our champions!
