UNYRB at the
in Syracuse, NY
in April 2007.
FIGURE 5. NERC match winner pog,
The pogs are actually
wooden ice cream spoons
Dave stamped with either a
Beetle, Ant, or Flea symbol
(remember the innovative
minds!). If you look closely
at the Flea pog, you'll
notice it has what appears
to be a plastic eye glued to
it. Dave assured me it was
not a plastic eye. He claims
it is a small robotic flea in a
glass case (Figure 8).
I really enjoy and
cherish my pog collection
and hope that more event
organizers will start
awarding match winner
