Please check out the HULL BOOSTERS FUND RAISER Photo's on their page.
HULL BOOSTERS THANK YOU !
As always, YOU people are the best ! Last night’s Hull Boosters Fund Raiser for the Hull High School athletic and academic programs was another success. This was absolutely made possible by the large crowd of regular core and occasional Fascination loyal players. Our players arrived fairly early and stayed very late into the evening. The Hull Boosters had a pretty good sized crowd to add to the total overall attendance during the evening. But, again, this annual fund raiser was a success because of our Fascination player’s attendance and support. I just wanted to specifically thank everyone that attended and played.
During the fund raiser, we were able to play game contests that paid the winners $100, $50, $40, $35, $30, $25 on multiple occasions. This was exciting for everyone and added some additional fun for the players. Another special thanks goes out to Greg and Peter from the Boosters and Bart Kelley from Fascination for arranging this event.
It goes without saying that our Fascination team ladies were also great as usual. Linda, Patrice and Laura worked the evening collecting, teaching, guiding, supporting, paying and running the festivities. Last, but definitely not least, we appreciate the many hours of machine maintenance and upkeep by Bob this week and during his past 35 years. Our original equipment is 95 years old and Bob keeps it looking only about 50 !
Again, Thank You to everyone that attended the Hull Boosters Fund Raiser on Saturday. You are the Best !

Our FASCINATION game has many unique features and fun facts.
It's the OLDEST operating original equipment game of its kind in America.
It was built and installed on Coney Island in 1918. It was purchased by Lenny Hersch and moved to Nantasket Beach in Hull, Ma. in 1945.
It is the only skilled contest game permitted to pay the winners in CASH throughout the entire country since 1945!
In 2018, it will be 100 years old and still an electromechanical machine.
Since 2012, many new games, contests and increased CASH AWARDS were added to the schedule, along with revising some older and well liked games from the past years.

Just a quick reminder that FASCINATION IS OPEN on Saturday at 6:00 PM in March
Hi Everyone, (030914)
You folks are great. Our player count increased 2 weeks in a row. We had a very good crowd last night and played special games, bonus contests and other special games. Our players enjoyed 3-4-5 ball games during the night. Later at night, the grand finale paid $40 to the winner. We had a bunch of players early in the evening and when a few of them left around 10:00 PM, 6 more players arrived. The attendance, payouts and excitement was very good during the entire evening.
We appreciate your patronage as we continue into our third week next Saturday at 6:00 PM. We will remain open on Saturdays at 6:00 PM throughout March and hopefully on Fridays and Saturdays in April. Remember, we always have free coffee, water and a snack along with soda and candy vending machines. Throughout March, whenever we have 20 players or more, Fascination will purchase free pizza for everyone.
On Saturday, March 8th, Fascination gave out free gift souvenirs to our players. This item was a pocket keychain and LED flashlight with Fascination imprinted on the side. These are very nice gifts and we have more items to give away and award as bonus prizes during the evening’s game play. Please pass the word along to your friends, relatives and neighbors that we are back and open for everyone to enjoy our ‘69th’ year of operation on Nantasket Beach in Hull, Ma. Thanks again for the great crowd last Saturday night.
Past and Current Ownership and Management over our past '69' Years !
Since the death in 2008 of the long time owner, manager and Hull town selectman, Lenny Hersch, the game was purchased in 2009 by the current owner Rick Lawrence.
Fascination is currently leased to operate by Bartly Kelly and managed by Ed with Linda, a long time employee. On very busy nights we get additional support and help from a few other very good people.
Over the years, a number of key employees have worked, managed and maintained the game of Fascination on Nantasket Beach.
Because of 'LENNY' and all of the past and current employees, Fascination has been operating for over '69' years on Nantasket Beach.
We would especially like to thank all of the many, many 'regular or core players' and the huge amount of past and present players that have joined us to participate in the year round fun and contests.
