What a treat it will be for all the players who indeed make the trip . . . . Quebec has Martin Labelle and Carlo & Friends . . . the USA has Rich Thill and Dwayne Stegner . . . what is it about the south side of Chicago that creates these dedicated table hockey artists?

Enjoy this folks . . . you see what you are missing if you don't make the trip. Do these glorious games not scream out to be played? I can hear the song all the way to Breezy Point!

Bravo Rich Thill Cheers Your labors are much appreciated my friend! Not Worthy

Will that other "weaver of gold" from Southern California grace us with his work?

Thanks Rich for the tremendous work!

"Mr." Thill,

Your works of art look great! Having played in Dec 2006, on LTHL's Coleco 5340's, I can vouch to the TH world that the Coleco boards in Chicago are rock solid & smooth.

Usually playing on any TH game you can only use your hand and wrist muscles. But, about an hour into playing in Lemont and against Rzonca who comes at the game like a Rhino with six arms, I found that I too could put all I had into it, i.e. use my biceps. Yet, I don't recall the game moving.

I can also vouch that their underboard leveling system allows the puck to travel across the board...as smooooooooooothhh as if it were on iced glass.

The TH league and other logos on the boards are the Coup de Grāce!

JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! Clapping

I can't wait to see and touch them in person.

Like you said Jim, I like the Vettes. I like the 69' Corvettes. I like all old Muscle Cars. My favortie is the 69 Camaro Pace Car. SS/RS white with orange racing strips and a orange and black houndstooth interior. That orange and black Thill Coleco kinda reminds me of that Camaro. VROOooommm....

This SUPERBIRD will probably put them both to shame though.



Wait till you get a look under the hood of Thill's COLECO'S!

Believe it or not, I had a 1970 Chevelle Malibu, 327 cu that we bored out, Cragar 15" OR 16" deep dish super stock (SS) wheels in the back, Dunlop GT Qualifier tires, bronze paint, black with silver flecks on the raised portion of the hood and a black vinyl roof, polished chrome all-around. I got alot of compliments on that car. Someday I'll dig in my old photo box to see if I have a good photo of it.

WOW! Those games are unbelievable! LONG LIVE THE THILL!!!!!!

Jim, are those painted 2 x 4s' that the levelers are going thru? I've got a 5170 model that I need to level. I'm worried about bending the frame of the game when I screw those L-brackets in though. Do I need to build a new frame to sit the existing game into? Any suggestions?

Bevel a straight thick peice of 3/4 oak or a rigid strip of heavy guage sheet metal. Form it, fit it then locate leveler holes. You will get it. We aint cuttin diamonds here! LOL!!!

Thank you for your well wishes and we look forward to meeting you Neil!
