Quoted from OLDPINGUY:
I will be at the bar holding it up!
As usual. Hey it's a thankless job but somebody gotta do it.
Tourney got off to a rocky start but its chugging along now. Wish there were a few more pins in the tourney area, 5 for main and 3 for classics, all games count. But I thank Donny and his team for all the hard work to make this tourney happen. The level of competition is through the roof. Players from both coasts and everywhere in between.
Got in just a bit ago....looking good, well run, the gangs all here!
Tourney going strong...a new game for me, Dungeons and Dragons.
Weathers great, foods amazing, and well the Bar in the middle.....
We will see who has a hangover tomorrow.
Great seeing everyone!
The fine folks at Stern, and Curly at Little Shop of Games, helps make a great Show,
along with our hosts and staff....
A good turnout for Tron movie night, and lots of kids....love the kids, and the joy in their faces!
Lets face it, we have a great hobby, made better with good people who share our passion!
Thanks for the pics, John.
Was definitely a fun start. The hotel is really nice. I'm by the pool this year instead of the tower and I like it.
I'm a little hungover BTW.
I ended up bringing Abra Ca Dabra, Target Alpha and Sinbad. I intended to bring BSD but the Mist multiball stopped working the night before the show, so I brought Sinbad instead.
My first pinball show. Had a blast with my daughter today. Played a bunch of pins I haven't played in years and a few I've never played (whoa nellie, full throttle, game of thrones, Americas most haunted). Thanks to everyone who brought games.
Not sure why they thought 5 pins for a tourney, with 3 for EMs, with all counting, would be enough for a huge tourney?!? Southern Fried had twice that many, at least. I heard people were waiting a 1/2 hour to play each game??
I hope this changes because I was hoping to come next year but heard the tourney was a major problem....
I'm pretty sure they had seven machines in the main tournament and four in the classics last year. The way they expanded the main hall this year there was less room for the tournament area. I heard rumors of a bigger venue next year. With all the out of state players who showed up this year, they really did need more games.
Can anyone find any results for the Papa Circuit tourney that took place at FPF2015? I can't find anything, not even on their facebook page.
