You might be interested in my pancakes then.

I can toss them far higher than Nick's balls!

I was rather expecting some wag to remind us that pancakes should always be thin and if they are thick enough to toss, the only place to toss them is in the bin!

Well what do you expect from a wag? A wag also comes from the tail end.
It's good to squawk!

You mean these? The greater plumed pancake tosser and The codman-crested spheroid tosser both spotted in the Greater Manchester region.

I'm back!-Both from recent software malfunctions and the Marvelous Mayfest!! - Must go again.... :D :D ..But, just to return to the proper thread I mentioned using the clear window material for just the purpose that Chris mentions, namely the admission of light to the playboard area. However, by blanking the back part you still achieve blackout for hands-in-front. My rigs always have a skylight. As to open-top booths of old, I seem to recall an old photo of such a rig with a large umbrella sticking out of the top! - On the subject of weather, I have used the rain a few times to build an audience by dint of announcing that I am having a go at the 'Most umbrellas in front of the booth' record - strangely, it does work! - English sense of humour I suppose! :lol: :lol:
