Do you enjoy playing pinball? Do you have good eye-hand coordination ? Have you mastered ball control, the single flipper hit, and the flip trap? Do you get sweaty hands and an adrenaline rush at the pull of the plunger? Then you might be just the person to join the Canal Street Arcade and Deli Pinball League.
We asked Michelle “Sully” Sullivan to tell us about h0w the league got started and why she’s playing in the league and here’s what she had to say:
“Late last summer I fell in love with playing Pinball. As a person with epilepsy, pinball wasn’t something that I thought I could enjoy. The fear that the flashing lights that might trigger a seizure kept me away. I am now 20 years seizure free and decided to give it a try. A competition and terrific friendship began, with several other pinball enthusiast constantly trying to outscore one another. One competitor, is the owner of Canal Street Arcade and Deli. I approached Rob about starting a pinball league. The league was formed and the sponsorship of Tito’s was obtained. The best part about pinball is that anyone can play. The league is full of people from different backgrounds all coming to compete and socialize. The next league starts 04/16/2018! Come and unleash your Pinball Wizard!”
