Foos Pulse

July 4th – Celebrating Freedom to Play Foosball


Happy Fourth of July to one and all! After taking the last year off from writing the Foos Pulse, it’s time to fire up the neurons and put fingers to keys…aka…pen to paper. And…just because there’s been no Foos Pulse doesn’t mean interest in foosball has diminished whatsoever. There continues to be plenty of activity on a weekly basis, all of which can be found by visiting ArizonaFooscall.com and clicking on Coming Events or Leagues.

Tornado Foosball Table Giveaway Weekend July 6-8

As we all know, you can’t improve your game unless you spend time on the table practicing, and practicing, and practicing a little more. Well, here is an awesome opportunity for some lucky fooser to become the owner of their own foosball table. The following excerpt is reprinted from a 6/24/2018 post from our aforementioned website.

One of our local foosers, Stephen Taylor, has decided to be a serious bad ass and give away his old practice table to a lucky fooser! The prize table is a Tornado Whirlwind home model. Steve has requested that the table be given to a new player with less than a 4.0 league rating.

DETAILS:

  • Table will be awarded via a lottery style drawing on July 8, 2018 at the Loft Again.

  • To be eligible for the drawing, players must have a local league rating below 4.0*

  • Players will receive one entry/ticket for each sponsored event they participate in on the weekend of July 6 - 8. (Max 3 entries.)


* Player must have average league rating of < 4.0 for the month preceding the event (June 6 - July 6).

If you’re looking to improve your game, and you don’t have a table, you definitely need to get out Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (July 6-8) to collect your entries for your chance at taking home a table. And…please make sure you give Steve a big thanks for offering up his table for the good of the sport.

Summer Foosball League

We just wrapped up the fifth week of the 2018 season. This year we’ve got 15 teams participating in two conferences, Eastern and Western, and their only remains one unbeaten team, the Bearded Kartel.
