    First State Flippers will be hosting a BBQ at Chad & Marianne's house on 7/27, and coincidentally there will also be a pinball tournament going on!! This event will be a laid back social event focusing on the BBQ cook out and fellowship, with some tournament pinball sprinkled in.

    NOTE - The event will be capped at 32 entries and 6 of those entries are reserved for the First State Flippers team. That leaves 26 spots. You must submit a deposit of $20 to secure your entry spot. First come first served. Please use Friends & Family via Paypal and send to firststateflippers@gmail.com

    Tournament Details:

    When: 7/27/19

    Where: 147 Paysan Lane, Magnolia DE, 19962 (Chad & Mariannes house)

    Time: 12PM SHARP START TIME (games will go on at 10am for practice and will turn off at 11:45AM so we can start announcements). Qualifying will consist of 2 sessions. Session 1 will go from 12pm to 1:30pm, and then we will break for 15 minutes. Session 2 of qualifying will go from 1:45pm to 3:15pm(no games will start after 3:15PM). After session 2, we will then break for 2 to 2.5 hours to enjoy a nice BBQ. I will be grilling everything from hot dogs, to burgers, to chicken, to steak skewers. If you want to bring a covered side dish, please feel free. While we break for the BBQ, we will have yard games setup like Volleyball, Badminton, Corn Hole, and Pole Bash. After everyone eats and drinks, we will start Finals sometime between 5:30-6pm.

    Cost: $35 ($25 will go to the prize fund & trophies. $1 to IFPA. $9 will go towards all refreshments for the BBQ).

    Format: Flip Frenzy for qualifying broken out into 2 sessions. Session 1 will go from 12pm to 1:30pm, and then we will break for 15 minutes. Session 2 of qualifying will go from 1:45pm to 3:15pm(no games will start after 3:15PM). Games will be played in head to head matches with a queue system. After 3 hours of qualifying the top 8 based on "net wins" will move on to the "A" division finals(finals format TBD). "Net Wins" is determined by the number of wins minus the number of losses.
    Tiebreakers will be decided by "most wins" and "fewest losses"

    Finals Format: To be determined still. We will definitely have the Top 8 moving on to the "A" finals, but still deciding on something fun for multiple division finals.

    Format Rules:
    1. Players may not concede the game prior to the start of ball 3
    2. In the event that a registered player is late at the start of a match, that player will be moved to the end of the queue and will also receive a loss for that match.

    Yesterday, First State Flippers hosted our first ever BBQ, which also just happened to have a thing called a pinball tournament going on and it was a huge success. Thanks to all 28 players who came out and endure the heat! The food spread was simply amazing as well as the adult libations. The Bourbon crushes and the Vodka Popsicles were a smashing hit!

    As for the tournament, we did 3 hours of qualifying using the Flip Frenzy Format, with David Ross snagging the most wins. After qualifying the top 8 advanced to the "A" Finals to play in a 60 minute Flip Frenzy and the rest of the field advanced to the "B" finals and played a group format 2-strike tournament.

    In our "A" division finals, we had a tie after 60 minutes of Flip Frenzy between Lou Nemphos and Jeff Mack. They got to play a 1 game playoff on Grand Lizard with Lou narrowly pulling out the win and securing his first ever First State Flippers win. Over in our "B" division finals our final game came down to Pete Tsipouras battling out against Marianne Pangia on Caribbean Cruise with Pete pulling out the victory. Congratulations to all of our winners yesterday!!

    We also had a huge 50/50 drawing yesterday as we took in $175 and each winner got $87!! We also had some door prizes donated by Mrs. Pin's Podcast, First State Flippers, Jersey Jack, and Rage Tilt. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the door prizes!

    IFPA results were submitted today. Thanks again to everyone who comes and supports First State Flippers, it's greatly appreciated!!!

    Wow. I didn’t even think the heat would get you out of your signature pants. Haha. Sounds like the flip frenzy went well.

    Haha! Well I played all day in my swaggy pants, and then when I went outside to start grilling around 4pm, it was just too much heat. I qualified 2nd, then fizzled in the Finals and I'm going to blame that on the shorts!
