@djreddog, congrats on all the work you’ve been putting into the Delaware scene over the past several months… really seems like you’re rocking it.

Thanks Joe. I officially started the tournament pinball scene in September of 2017 and the attendance has exceeded all expectations. The support from the surrounding states is tremendous and greatly appreciated. I lot of tournaments in the tri-state area run either a 3 or 4 strike knockout format and I believe my format of group match play is the enticing factor for the players.

I’m still amazed we had 27 kids attend our kids tournament last year.

I’m hoping with the creation of the Delaware Tour Championship circuit this year that even more people we recognize Delaware as a tournament hotbed. Based on attendance for the first 3 events, the Tour Championship should easily pay $800 to first place!

If you have any additional advice, please share because not only am I new to tournament directing, I’m also new to the tournament scene.

Hi Chad, am I in time to snag the last spot for the tournament? I’m sending you my deposit now.

Thanks,
Sanjay

Sanjay,

You initially missed the cut off by a matter of minutes. However, due to popular demand, we have decided to add more spots for the April Affray event! So now you are tasked with finding 3 more people to sign up :grinning:

Thanks, I’ll put the word out in my area! :slight_smile:

April Affray is sold out for a second time! This will be First State Flippers largest tournament to date with 48 players! Game list has been slightly adjusted. See below for player list and game list. Don’t forget it’s BYOBeverage. We will break around 415pm for about 30-45 minutes to give everyone time to eat and give us time to setup for finals. Can’t wait to see everyone! Also, I’ll be DJing at The Starboard on 4/27 if anyone wants to come down and party with me! Thanks again to everyone for making this event a success!!!
