Pinball Tournament Winners

Winners of a pinball tournament with Treasure Valley Pinball. This might be the first time my face has been in a post on this blog. I won the Ghost Busters pinball machine translite (kind of like the backglass on a pinball machine). Gerry was the best player and took first place. The tournament was at Woodland Empire. My husband and I are founders of Treasure Valley Pinball and we host tournaments monthly.

Monument Relocated

This marker used to be right beside the Boise River. It was relocated to the grounds of a nearby hotel when the pathway along the river was redone.
