5-Point Manitou Arcade Ticket Found on Sidewalk
June 30, 2002
MANITOU SPRINGS, CO -- A 5-point value Manitou Arcade ticket was found on the sidewalk
of Canon Avenue this Sunday afternoon.
Lodged inside a crevice on the concrete pavement
near the Cliff House, the ticket was first noticed by Steve, and with nobody else in sight, he decided to keep it based on the principle of "finder's keepers."
"Aren't you working towards that prize?" said Adryen Huber of Parker,
"It must be your lucky day."
"Get out the camera. This is news. How awesome!" Steve exclaimed.
Earlier in the afternoon, Steve was also given
seven tickets from friends
Adryen and Marie - tickets they won playing
skeeball. The newly acquired tickets increased Steve's accumulation to 113 tickets.
He needs just 102 more to obtain the cactus mug that he has been
coveting in her heart throughout the summer.
While hosting his friends Adryen and Marie (who live in Parker, Colorado),
Steve did not play skeeball, twenty-one, the horse racing derby or any other games
that would have gained him tickets. Instead, he played air
hockey with Adryen and enjoyed two games of Centipede. Steve did walk
past two Ms. Pac Man machines, but has
refrained from playing since he
gained the high score at the Ancient Mariner, a nearby tavern.
