Announcement : Air hockey this Wednesday

Hey all,

Just wanting to remind you all that we have a match this Wednesday, so please drop by Manitoba’s after 8PM and play a game or two with us!

Also, we have a bit of confusion about match dates. Apparently the folks at Thrillist, who were kind enough to link to us, got the dates wrong. They announced that we have matches on the first and third Mondays of the month. However, we had planned on holding this week’s match on Wednesday.

So if you want to play some Air Hockey, please come to Manitoba’s this Wednesday, not Monday.

In any case, I’ll try to drop by for a little while on Monday just to see if any poor misinformed folk show up.

Pictures from last match, FINALLY!

Hey all,

Air Hockey NYC’s second-ever match will take place on Monday, May 5th at 8PM at Manitoba’s. Since it’ll be Cinco De Mayo, we’ll be celebrating with chips, salsa, tequila, and cervezas. We had a great crowd last time, and are looking forward to another exciting night of air hockey fun and amazement.

Air Hockey NYC Inaugural Match a Success!

Hey all,

So, last Monday, Air Hockey NYC had its first match, which turned out even better than I thought it would. 12 people showed up for the event, and we played many exciting, fast-paced games of air hockey. Some elected to play with a single puck, while others decided to give multi-puck play a go. We found Manitoba’s to be a comfortable and welcoming environment, and very conducive to air hockey excellence. It was a good time for all involved, and I thank everybody for coming out.

Now, some orders of business to attend to :

1) It was suggested that we meet twice a month instead of once a month. I’m totally open to this idea. What do you all think? Would you be available to play air hockey twice a month?

2) Some proposed that we meet on a day other than Monday. I’m not particularly attached to Mondays, but I picked that day because I figured the bar would be empty and they wouldn’t mind us taking over their game room. I think that Tuesday or Wednesday would also work. What do you guys think?

3) I’m thinking of making t-shirts. If I did make them, I’d be selling them at cost, as I’m not interested in turning a profit or anything like that. If I made t-shirts, would you buy one?

And, finally, I’ll post a few pics from the match. Enjoy!
