    I thoroughly sucked at Pinburgh but wanted to make a post thanking all the Tournament Directors & Techs. Working at a big tournament like Pinburgh is a thankless job. The tournament directors were fair and professional and the techs were outstanding. When you flipped that light to get help someone always came running.

    This is a big thank you to everyone who helped put the event together. I hope other players appreciate it as much as I do.

    Couldn't agree more. My first Pinburgh, I also sucked - but what an amazing experience. I imagine setting up something this large to be a logistical nightmare, but there were no hiccups that happened to me or that I heard about. The techs, the TDs, all worked so hard and made it the coolest event I've ever been to.

    It was my first as well - I can only go up from here

    #7 2 years ago

    Quarterfinals on. Not sure exactly when that will be. I just subscribe to them on YouTube and get a notification when they go live.

    Got to say I really enjoyed the PapaTV youtube live broadcasts of the finals of A Division at Pinburgh.
    I was rooting for Jim Belsito, but Keith came thru in the end
    again.

    I was completely blown away by the quality of the games. They really played great. He tech crew was amazing.

    The tournament directors were also fantastic. Of the 10 groups I was in, we needed both the tech team a couple of times, and we needed the TDs once for a ruling. They were right there for us and handled things as fairly as possible.

    And I know they are not staff, but I appreciate the other players too. I met some great people and had fun playing pinball with them all.

    Near the end, the running usually slows down a notch

    The spacing of the games and the widening of the aisles much improved from last year. Placement of the tech alert lights to the center of the venue facing the tech tables allowed much faster response times.

    The best improvement overall was the pre-checkin location and expanded times. Easy close by parking available and great food at Harris Grill. Hope Harris Grill is used again.
