    A buddy of mine could be bringing an Interflip Dragon EM. If he does, it will be for sale.

    I've played in the papa tourney at LAX the last four years. There's never been any pre-reg. Just show up and register and buy your entries. Unless they change, it's always been 3/$10. Those can be used in the Main or Classics, or both, anyway you choose. And it is definitely a circuit event. The very first event on the 2017 circuit!

    BTW, of course you have to pay for your entry into the show to play in the tourney. I highly recommend getting the weekend pass in advance to save a few bucks.

    Just an FYI about the hotel. I've stayed there 4 years running and it's really not good. The walls and doors are paper thin. Couple that with the very long hallways and you get constant walking traffic and noise outside your room. I rarely get enough sleep when I stay there. Not trying to be negative, just telling it like it is. This year we are staying at the Louisville Marriott East which is only about 2-3 blocks away. Best rate I could find was 127/night and I think it will be worth it.

    Yeah, if your lucky enough to get a room in the back, we call it the tower of power, LOL. It's actually pretty quiet and there is an extra floor that the rest of the hotel doesn't have. I've only been lucky enough to get one of those rooms once.

    A little birdie told me they Pricelined the Ramada for $42/night.....

    Hey, can anyone local give a guess as to how far of a walk it is from the Marriott to the show? Thanks.

    #224 2 years ago

    I think you're talking about the Ramada.

    Quoted from zaterminator:

    I have an Interflip Dragon for sale I can deliver to the show. Overall, it is in excellent condition. PM if you would like to see pictures or a video.

    I've played this Dragon and it's really nice. Plays great. Can be delivered to the show. BAO!

    Quoted from mizary:

    Anyone have a link to the final standings? I know the final 4 in mains were the Rosas and Trent and ?, and I know that Trent won. I know they will eventually show up on ifpa site. But I am also curious about the payouts. There was some finals info on https://www.pbchallenge.net/lax/ but the site doesn't seem to be working now. And the YAPSS app only has qualifying info.
    I know 9-16 in Classics finals got $100. And 5-8 in B division got $50.
    What did Trent get for winning? I wonder how much money they took in. Wish you could see voided entries like in the INDISC system. But overall the YAPSS app and system worked great - no issues at all.
    Was a great show. This was the biggest tourney I'd ever played in. I loved the Classics - I'd never played in a Classics tourney before. The main bank chewed me up. Especially that TWD machine. I regret giving up on it. Wish I'd bought at least 3 more entries just so I could have had another chance at that game. I played it 4 times and got 11m 5m 5m and 18m. Had Prison MB lit on TWO of those attempts, once even on ball two and failed to start it. heh. Only had one well walker MB which is how I got my 18m. I am fine with doing poorly on games like Atlantis which I didn't know at all. But TWD? I know I can crush that game.
    And finally thanks to everyone that helped make this tourney happen. The PAPA guys, the score keepers, techs, etc. The show ran smooth as silk and everyone I can in contact with was super nice and helpful. This was the most fun 4 days of pinball in my life. Let's see if pinburgh can top it!

    Finals brackets are at the link above. Click results, then finals, then the second "Main A" (the first one is no good). They did not/have not put in any data from the final 4 match. The new software worked well but was a bit hard to navigate through. I was told it was PAPA's proprietary software and this was it's first time being used. A div finishing order was Trent, Rosa Sr., Myself(Chris Warren), Rosa Jr. I don't know the other prizes but 3rd place was $500.

    That TWD had zero ball saver and an extremely tight tilt. No wonder scores were so low. I had a 30M score that was like 9th after the first day of qualifying. I eventually got 88M, a score that seems laughable until you realize it was 13th best for the whole weekend of qualifying. They slightly loosened the tilt just before the first round of finals on Saturday night. Players were still giving warnings to the following players.

    I was playing Dragon and saw a guy behind me. Offered to play 2 player game with him. He said OK. So I put two games up, played my first ball, then he played his first ball. I played my 2nd ball, the he proceeded to play 3 or 4 balls in a row. Just didn't get the concept....

    Anyone know the status of the tournament. I read that the LAX tourney was no longer on the Stern Pro Circuit. Will there even be a tourney?
