What a terrific weekend! The 2015 Houston Arcade & Pinball Expo Tournament was a huge success! We raised $500 for Flip Off Hunger. TigerLaw has graciously agreed to match our donation, so we raised $1,000 for Flip Off Hunger. That is over 3,000 meals for hungry families over this holidays season! Thanks to all of my tournament players for helping support a very important cause!
The show awarded over $3,000 in cash and prizes. We had a top 20 player (Joshua Henderson), top 40 player (Bob Matthews), top 60 player (Colin MacAlpine) and two top 90 players (Phil Grimaldi, Jon Drew).
Joshua Henderson won the Main Event A Division tournament.
Preston Moncla, current IFPA Texas State Champion, came in second.
Mark Meserve came in third.
Jessica Shepherd came in fourth.
For the second time in Houston Expo history, we had a woman in the top 4 of our main event. Jessica Shepherd fought her way through some very tough competition to get to the Top 4. She also won a 1st place trophy & cash for being the top qualified woman in our event. Congratulations to Jessica for her amazing tournament weekend!
I will write up another post with all the winners from this weekend!
Looking forward to next year!
