Details

We had another incredible turnout with 71 players, that included at least 8 cancellations due to the weather on Saturday.  The weather turned out horrible, probably the worst yet in the 6 years of Pinholics Anonymous tournaments.  However, everyone took it in stride and the garage became a good hangout area with a little water to deal with.  Players hung out everywhere including the back deck.  For food, we used the carry-out deal from Domino's again, this time getting 21 large 3 toppings pizzas that turned out to be just enough for everyone.  Players got a chance to ask for specific toppings and it worked out great.

Qualifying had 11 rounds total with one play-in game for six 3-strike players vying for 5 spots in 8 player finals.

Other notes:

  • We did a 50/50 raffle to help increase the prize pool, which ended up at $560 compared to $380 in September ($280 to the winner and $280 to the prize pool).  Congratulations to Rob Hurley who won the raffle, which turned out to be more than 3rd place in the tournament.
  • A new Pinholics Anonymous Champion was crowned as David Horner finally broke through and took home the big prize.  He won effectively a head-to-head match against Gilles Melanson for the last game on Star Wars to win it.  Chris Newsom took 3rd and Kevin Stone ended up in 4th.
  • David's performance jumped him from 82nd in Pintervention standings to around 13th, and moved him from around 28th in VA States to top 5 (roughly).  Last big Virginia event of the year, what a good time to hit a home run.
  • Final results:  1st - David Horner, 2nd - Gilles Melanson, 3rd - Chris Newsom, 4th - Kevin Stone.  Kevin did not win any money, so fourth place winnings went to Justin Day, and all other winnings moved down a spot, with Rose Weingartner who took 9th place winning 8th place prize money.
