Skee-ball is a great arcade game that has been around for over 100 years. For those who never went to Chuck-E-Cheese in their younger days or just can't remember that far back, the idea of skee-ball is to score points by rolling a ball down a table with a ramp at the end that launches the ball into one of the holes at the opposite end of the table. Each hole is worth different amounts with the more-difficult holes being worth the most amount of points. Unlike Chuck-E-Cheese, there are no tickets or little prizes if you win, but there is beer.
(FUN: Jackie is one of the most-social participants in skee-ball.)

Because the idea of the River City Sport & Social Club is to play sports and be SOCIAL, all teams should patronize one (OR MORE) of RCSSC’s bar sponsors (Home Team Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Gus', On The Rox) after each game. These establishments care enough to support RCSSC (YOU), so socially supporting one of our sponsors by having a meal or a few drinks is important. Plus, beer-infused post-game downtime is an essential part of the RCSSC social experience, and these sponsors have been kind enough to offer a player special for all social RCSSC players--as long as they have their team shirt on. Who would say no?
(WHY, YES YOU CAN: Of course you can have a brew while playing skee-ball.)
There is one division offered for Skee-ball: Super Social.
Super Social: For skee-ball, there isn't much athleticism involved. The game is more about being social and having a good amount of control over how you roll the ball down the table. Some people put spin on the ball and others just send it hoping for the ball to hop-up to the furthest hole for the most points. To do well in this game, you just have to find your groove and practice beforehand.
(ACES: These gentlemen are ace skee-ballers, as you can see by their matching finish form.)
