Tournament history:
Jim Rzonca and Eric Krol have been putting on table hockey events together in the Chicago area since 2002. The big event each year was the Stiga U.S. Open, held in mid-to-late July. In 2007, the decision was made to add a Coleco event on Friday night. Veteran table hockey player Rich Thill restored several Coleco 5380 games. They're part of what makes the Chicago event unique: you're playing on vintage games that play better than new. We've also used Carleco and Labelle games over the years. Players have come in from all over the U.S. and Canada to join in the fun. It's typically held in the banquet room at the Lemont VFW hall.
