Details

We had a total of 42 players, including one comp and one child.  The weather turned out okay after an icy morning.  We backed up the start time one hour to 4pm, then another 30 minutes for a last minute Spider-man repair.  The weather actually warmed up as the night went on and the fire pit was raging hot all night.  For food, we had 22 medium two-topping pizzas from Domino's.  The pizza was demolished as always, but there was even more variety this time around. 

Qualifying had 10 rounds total and resulted in 7 final players.  A 3 and 4 player group were used for semi-finals, with one 4 player group in the finals.  A one game tie-breaker was used to determine 8th place payout.

Other notes:

  • Four players including the eventual 1st, 2nd and 5th place finishers drove from NYC to attend.  Great job guys!
  • Francis and his son Jason had to play each other in a late round.  Both finished tied for 11th place.  Great job for Jason as he continues to play and is starting to challenge many players.
  • The games all held out fine this time around.  Centaur will get a flipper rebuild soon due to its weak right flipper.  AC/DC's color DMD kept going out.  Will have to work on the power cable to prevent that in the future.
  • Steven Bowden pulled off an epic Star Trek shot for 46+ million points.  With 231+ million points, and the third Vengeance mode running, Steven hit the drop target for Sudden Death, then trapped the ball, hit the left ramp to setup the x2 combo shot and hit the vengeance to score the Sudden Death shot worth 10% of his score, that was doubled to 20% due to the combo shot.  Kevin was giving a play-by-play to Eric Schoch when it occurred and immediately lost it with excitement and congratulations to Steven for the epic finisher.  Watching great players pull off those types of mega-shots is fantastic to have at Pinholics.  Way to go Steven!!!!
