We had a total of 46 players again. The weather was great, and we even had the fire blazing in the evening. For food, we tried out a new carry-out deal from Domino's, and got 18 large 3 toppings pizzas that turned out to be plenty for everyone.
Qualifying had 10 rounds total and resulted in exactly 8 players in the finals without using the play-in round.
- Steven Bowden, of FunWithBonus.com, won his third Pinholics Anonymous tournament. Steven started with 2 strikes in the first 2 rounds, proving that not giving up and continuing to play to win the next is a key to winning!
- Jose Chong brought his streaming gear and we had it setup on The Walking Dead, giving the world a chance to watch the Dead taking down Pinholics players all night.
- All top 4 seeds in the semi-finals did not make it to the finals. Seeds 5 through 8 advanced!
- A handful of players in fact wore costumes, thanks to those that went through the effort. Each player won a prize for their effort:
- Rob Wintler-Cox's costume was THE Eight Ball Champ, and won the Sharkey's Shootout translite
- Stephanie Traub's costume was Wednesday from The Addams Family, and won the Ghostbusters translite
- Shawn Hillman's costume was Ted from Road Show, and in a one game Spider-man Black contest with Alex Jeffrey, won the Star Trek translite
- Alex Jeffrey's costume was a Minion (maybe not pinball related but awesome). He won the WrestleMania translite but deferred for a Pinholics tee shirt
- Cristin Gasson and her kids' costumes were Cat Woman, Batman and Robin and won the WrestleMania translite
- SkateBall joined the Pinholics line-up and replaced Monaco
- LOTR was moved to the utility room and was on open play all night, along with the Spider-man Black on loan in the garage.
