Winter league is done- I did not qualify for finals (missed by one point!) but I qualified into B division, compared to a D division placement in every season before this. It's not an apples to apples comparison, because of changes to our league format this season, but what is comparable is that my average score went up by quite a lot - so I'll chalk it a win. And I've got two more seasons to make my goal of getting into finals.
I have played pinball every day save one this year. One day I literally just forgot I was supposed to play pinball!
