USTHA members woke up today to find that the latest issue of the official newsletter, "The Score," has been published. There's a modern twist: it's now an online publication.

You can check out all the details about the new format and new issue at the USTHA web site.

http://www.ustha.com/


(To our Canadian friends with the CTHA...the organization is working on sending you the same e-mail with the details of how to access the new issue. In the meantime, if you have questions, you can feel free to e-mail me at byline302@yahoo.com and I'll try to help.)

Thank you, Jim.

The real thanks for this one goes out to Stephen Klump and Dom Froome for their contributions to the newsletter, and to Reggie for taking the time to answer some questions. And to Paul Brotz and Ron Marsik for the flashback feature. Glad I snapped a pic of Reggie while in SoCal...had one to use for the newsletter.

Hello all. We've posted the latest issue of "The Score," the official newsletter of the USTHA/CTHA. It's in electronic form.

In this issue:

*Tips on how to quickly figure out how a Stiga game plays (fast or slow, etc)

*A look at tournament organizing with Mike Horan of Binghamton, NY

*Player profile with Jim Rzonca

*And one dreamer weighs in with his view of a World Championship of table hockey. A couple other articles failed to turn up in my inbox by deadline, but hope to get them for the next issue. Check it out:

The web site: http://usthactha.wordpress.com/

Thanks to Messrs. Klump and Froome for their contributions.


To get the password, you've gotta be a USTHA or CTHA member. I tend not to push the membership sales (because I know people don't like a hard sell in the TH world) but only point it out because um, membership has its privileges.

We've also got back issues archived online for members. I think there might be a sample post or two that's not password protected, for those looking to sample.


Best,
Eric

Hello everyone. The new issue of "The Score," the table hockey newsletter of North America, has been posted online over the past week. A late Christmas present, maybe?

We've got four articles this issue: one on practicing tips, a look at the trend toward multi-board tournaments, a player Q and A with John Labianca of Las Vegas, and a column by Canadian Table Hockey Association President John Cooke.

Members of the United States Table Hockey Association got an e-mail tonight telling them how to access the newsletter at http://usthactha.wordpress.com/

Members of the Canadian Table Hockey Association who didn't get an e-mail but want to access the newsletter can feel free to please e-mail me at ericakrol@gmail.com


Happy holidays and best wishes in the new year,

Eric Krol
USTHA President

Hello. We've been planning a new issue of "The Score," the official newsletter of the USTHA/CTHA for quite a while now and have a few stories in various stages of completion. We could always use a few more.

But we'd also like to ask the table hockey community for some story ideas and contributions. That will help us put out the newsletter with more frequency.

Please send your thoughts to ericakrol@gmail.com



Best, Eric

Hello everybody. We've got an early holiday present for the table hockey community. It's a new issue of "The Score," the official newsletter of the Canadian Table Hockey Association and United States Table Hockey Association.

We've got five articles in this issue, which has a loose Canadian Stiga TH theme.

*A message from CTHA President John Cooke

*A story about the CTHA's foray into Facebook by Johnny Canuck.

*A player profile on the talented Eric Desjardins.

*A new feature written by Jeff Mancini of Las Vegas about vintage table hockey games. The debut column is about a specific Eagle game close to Jeff's heart.

*The feature article this time is written by the brilliant Stephen Klump, who really thinks about TH and the mechanics of the game. It's about How to Aim, complete with photo illustrations. It's really something.

I was very happy to act as an editor this time out...asking people to contribute and watching their ideas bear fruit. We can publish more frequently if people contribute their story ideas and talents and time.

Speaking of which, special thanks to John Cooke, Stephen Klump, Johnny Canuck, Eric Desjardins and Jeff Mancini for their contributions in this issue.

If you live in the US, I'll be emailing members with the password.

If you live in Canada, please contact John Cooke for the password. An email also will go out to some CTHA members.

If you already know the password, the web site is here: http://usthactha.wordpress.com/

Or hit me with a private message on here or at ericakrol@gmail.com


Happy holidays to everyone.

Eric
