    Security may need to be increased in the tournament area. One competitor could be arriving armed:

    Quoted from Jared:

    Big Bang Bar! NOW UP FOR AUCTION! SELLER TOLD US HE WONT TAKE LESS THAN 22,000! SO... BIDDING BEGINS AT 22,000!! ... anyone... ... we cant go lower... come on... uhhh... NEXT. lol

    That sounds a lot better than 40 bids that take it up to $20k and then no sale. What a waste of everyone's time.
    I think reserves are for sucks. It's your minimum price, so set it as the minimum or don't auction and waste everyone's time.

    Anyone driving Austin to Dallas today watch the news/traffic. A bridge collapse in Salado is blocking I-35:

    If no one has grabbed it maybe PM Eliz72 since they just decided to come in from Wisconsin last minute.

    I 2nd that - Quicksilver was amazing (serious bass from the speaker(s)) and Embryon was beyond gorgeous. Wish there had been more classic Sterns like last year...

    Quoted from swampfire:

    I want to know what speaker was in that Quicksilver. I shot the saucer over and over just to hear that awesome sound.

    Spinners were great too. TPF site says it was brought by Bill Stahly so maybe you can track him down to ask. He also had the excellent Xenon next to it (that I think won an award). Cool clear apron on it.

    EDIT: he appears to be Pinsider DOTHEDOO

    To clarify the B/C playoff situation (as best I can because it is complicated, which I think is due to trying to maximize points under the new IFPA rules) those people came from the top 40 qualifiers

    From the top 40 they pulled from the bottom of the group so if you were in the lower 18 and lost a game you went to C playoffs. The next 12 people were added to rounds 3 & 4 and anyone losing in those rounds went to the B playoffs. Starting in round 5 (where players 5 to 10 are added) anyone who loses is out. So it's one and done for a top 10 player but then they also have 4 byes and don't risk a first round Cinderella story taking them out.
