Details

We had a total of 49 players, including one comp and one child.  The weather turned out fantastic, although windy, the fire pit was raging hot all night.  For food, we had 18 medium two-topping pizzas from Domino's.  The pizza was demolished but not as quickly as last time.  Snacks included the normal chips and sodas, which also disappeared quickly.  No keg this time as I forgot and ran out of time to get it on Saturday.  Seemed to work well without it though, so we may skip that in the future.

Qualifying had 11 rounds total and resulted in 6 final players.  Two 3 player groups were used for semi-finals, with one 4 player group in the finals.  A tie-breaker was needed to determine 7th through 9th place due to 7th and 8th receiving prize payout.

Jose Chong brought his streaming gear and we live-streamed World Cup Soccer the entire night.  We had some interesting charaters show up on the live feed.  You'll have to watch to find out.  Here is the link to the entire video on YouTube.

Other notes:

  • Cristin Gasson and Edan Grossman were the only players to reach the finals both times in 2016.  Congratulations on a well played tournament!
  • The last person left at 4am - now that was a pinball party!
  • Kevin Kuntz came in from Richmond and dominated the tournament.  Kevin was also the 2015-16 North Carolina IFPA State Champion.  Congratulations!
