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.
In 2012 and now into 2013, 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.

Past and Current Ownership and Management over our past '68' 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 15 year employee. On very busy nights we get additional support and help from a few others.
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 '68' 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.

Hi Everyone, (11-17-2013)
First of all, I want to THANK all those that showed up last Saturday and played in our last Open Tournament of 2013. Although we did not have a very large crowd, it was fun, exciting and very competitive. We paid the winners of each of the 50 games and the winners of each 10 game series and the top four overall finishers. The final results were as follows: 1st Place=Gert, 2nd Place=Kathy, 3rd Place=Irene and 4th Place=Fred. We have never had a repeat winner of one of these Open Tournaments and two of them participated Saturday. Following the tournament, we had regular game play with lots of bonus action and cash awards. The tournament players were joined by a number of Fascination visitors to make a good size group and some really nice game contest cash prizes. Thank you again for supporting Fascination as we move forward through this winter on Fridays at 7:00 PM and Saturdays at 6:00 PM.
When you’re HOT – you’re HOT !
When you’re GOOD–You’re GOOD!
When you’re BOTH –
You’re AWESOME ! (Gert)
Saturday nights Open Tournament was very competitive with Gert winning a total of 9 games out of the 50 game contest.(almost 20% wow) Our 2nd through 4th place finishers won 8,7 and 6 games each. There was a very good mix of competitors from young to older and experienced to fairly new players. Fascination is a game of skill and it surely helps to have a little luck along the way. When the tournament was over, Gert remained HOT by winning a number of 3-ball, 4-ball and 5-balls regular game contests against a larger group of players than we had in the tournament. THEN, she followed up on her highly skillful night by winning the Grand Finally Winner Take All Cash game. There was a lot of competition throughout the evening as always, but this evening belonged to Gert ! Our newest Open Tournament Champion of 2013.
(Not that it matters – But, did I mention that Gert is the oldest player that comes to Fascination to compete with all of you
See you again next Friday with Bart and Saturday with Ed and Linda. Remember to bring your friends, relative and neighbors to enjoy the competition, fun, excitement, challenge and All Cash Prizes.
