The Playing Locations File All of the foosball playing locations I've managed to collect, mostly locations in the USA, but some entries for other countries are listed. This is the older file that is autoposted to RSTS; It is not current. The latest versions is now at The Foosball Source from Clay Gump, who now keeps the N. American playing locations, so if you have any updates or changes you wish to make, don't e-mail me, but go to the Foosball Source, and use Clay's handy on-line editing form to add playing locations. I may add international locations at post it to RSTS in the future (3/98).
