We had a new Pinholics record of 59 players. The weather was cold but the light snow from the morning had metled, and the fire was burning tall and hot all night. For food, we used the carry-out deal from Domino's again, this time getting 22 large 3 toppings pizzas that turned out to be plenty for everyone (we had 3 leftover pizzas). Didn't get enough sodas this time, they went fast, so we'll get more next time.
Qualifying had 10 rounds total with one play-in game for 3 strike players resulting in 8 players in the finals.
- Steven Bowden, of FunWithBonus.com, won his fourth overall and second consecutive Pinholics Anonymous tournament. Steven again had 3 strikes going into the play-in round, made it into semi-finals and took it down in 3 games out of 4 in the finals!
- Jose Chong again brought his streaming gear and we had it setup on the newest member of the Pinholics collection: Star Wars. The fourth and final game of the finals was played on Star Wars and can be viewed here: OneiPodOnePinball Final Game Stream
- Jack-bot was moved to the utility room and was in the tournament
- Spider-man Black on loan in the garage was on open play all day and night
