Arachnid Rep Helps in Houston Devastation from Hurricane Harvey

Arachnid Rep, Deondre “Kidd” Cardenas, who lives in Houston, was one of the many who stepped up to help rescue people from their homes and take them to shelter.

One particular incident Kidd will remember was on Sunday, August 27, when he was out in a boat with other rescuers, he noticed an arm waving out of an attic. They used a chainsaw to cut a hole in the house and there was a little girl with her mother and father. Kidd pulled the little girl out and carried her to safety, and then her parents were helped to the boat.

Also helping was Star City Amusement, Roddy, who donated money for food for the rescuers. Elite Entertainment, Mike Brown, was on another boat in Dickerson helping people get out of their homes, and JD Rodriguez, from AVS, donated his time to the local Church by helping with the clean up and feeding people in the area.
Arachnid extends our sympathy to all the people suffering loss from Hurricane Harvey and the devastation that has affected the lives of many.

NGS – No Greater Sacrifice

NGS-winnerThanks to all the players that donated to the No Greater Sacrifice charity. All proceeds were donated to the families of fallen and wounded service members. $5,000 was donated by dart players at Qualifying BullShooter Regionals, the BullShooter Finals and some players mailed entry forms to Arachnid 360. The lucky dart game winner was David Delp out of Roanoke, Virginia. The Galaxy 3 Camouflage Home Game was shipped to the Delps, in Virginia, the week after the BullShooter. David said he is really enjoying the game and getting a lot of practice in! David is married to Lisa Delp (a Women’s A player) and they have nine children. His younger children play darts, so maybe there will be more Delp shooters coming in the future! David and Lisa donated to NGS at the Virginia BullShooter Qualifying Regional filling out many forms for the worthy cause. Congratulations on your win and enjoy your new game!

No Greater Sacrifice and Arachnid 360 are asking for your help in honoring the sacrifices of our Service members by investing in their children through small monetary donations.

With Great Pleasure, Arachnid 360 Owners Announce New Promotions

Arachnid 360 owners Tony Beall, Chris Beall, and Shawn Beall are pleased to announce the promotion of Sam Zammuto to President, Pat Rice to V.P. of Engineering and Innovation, and Mike Gannon to V.P. of Customer Service.

Sam Zammuto joined the Arachnid Sales and Promotion staff in 1982.  Through his direct help the first dart league was formed, he helped design the first soft-tip “Cricket” game, participated in the invention of automated communication, and started the BullShooter World Tour, which is now in its 31st year.  Sam is very well known and respected in the coin-op industry and has been very instrumental in the success and growth of darts around the world.  Tony Beall commented, “Through his supervision, Arachnid has prospered throughout the years and we look forward to our continued growth under his direction as President.”

Pat Rice joined Arachnid in 1992 in the Engineering Department.  He has been a driving force leading the engineering changes to Arachnid’s dart games.  This includes the innovation of the Galaxy II and  the Galaxy 3 Live, and also with Arachnid’s electronic shuffleboards–the Super Shuffle and DiscGlo Shuffle.  With his continued support as V.P. of Engineering and Innovation, his team continues to work to develop products to keep up with the future trend.

Mike Gannon joined Arachnid in 2002 as a Midwest Sales Representative and was later promoted to Sales / Customer Service Manager.  Prior to Arachnid, Mike already had 22 years of coin-op experience and had many industry acquaintances in the marketplace.  Arachnid feels fortunate to have Mike’s expertise in the coin-op industry, while he continues to lead a team of technicians as V.P. of Customer Service.
