November Nefarious, the final event of the Tour Championship is now in the books! A big thanks goes out to all 52 people who attended yesterday’s event. This was the largest event ever for Delaware Pinball! Without your support these events don’t happen! I hope everyone had a blast yesterday. The tournament started at 1:10pm, and once we overcame numerous game break downs in Round 1, the rest of the day ran smooth. Rounds averaged 31 minutes and we got 7 rounds in, with the final round ending at 4:45pm. Our quickest round was Round #3 which only lasted 24 minutes! As for game play, our longest average playing game was Metallica Premium at 24:34! Average game time was 19:38!
Congratulations to all of the winners as well!! Once again we had some new faces collecting cash at this event and we had 7 new players attending a First State Flippers event for the first time!!! Reminder that the final event is the Delaware Tour Championship being held on 12/1 at Joe Fox’s house. The top 32 players qualify for this event. Lastly, IFPA results were submitted this morning for November Nefarious
Also, I want to make sure everyone that participates in a First State Flippers tournament is fully aware of the breakdown of the money received for the tournament. I want everything to be transparent.
As mentioned before, $4 from each entry paid is being set aside for the end of the year prize fund for the “Delaware Tour Championship”, which will be held on 12/1 as mentioned above. We collected $208 from the November Nefarious event and that now brings the current total prize pool money after 6 events to $1072!!!
We also held another 50/50 raffle drawing during event #6. The purpose of the 50/50 raffle is to take half of the proceeds and put that aside for the winner of the Delaware State Championship Series. First State Flippers will help “sponsor” the winner of the SCS and whatever money we take in from the 50/50 will go to that person to help cover expenses, flight, lodging, etc to attend the Nationals in Las Vegas next year. We sold $214 in 50/50 tickets at Event #6 with Jeffrey Shropshire being the winner for the second time this year and collecting $107. After 6 events we have now raised $524 from the 50/50 raffle and this money will go a long ways to help out with expenses for the Delaware State Champion!!!
As for our Bounty Envelopes, we had all 8 bounty envelopes collected by the end of round 5. We gave out a total of $50 in bounties at this event!
Final overall results are posted below. Chad Hastings took home 1st place in “A Division”, Charlie Bucks took home 1st in “B Division” and Brian LeBlanc took home 1st in “C Division”.
In addition to that I have updated the Delaware Tour Championship standings and posted the final results (see photos).With a 1st place victory yesterday, Chad Hastings surpassed Joe Fox Jr and is the new #1 seed heading into the Tour Championship. Our final standings ended up with 3 players tied for the 32nd and final spot. Those players were Tom DeStasio, David Schumeister, and Ryan Altemose. Per the Tour Championship Rules, the tiebreaker for the 32nd position will be determined by whichever player has the highest finish in a “tour event” this season. If a tie remains after a single event, the next highest finish will be considered. This process will repeat until the tie is broken, or a coin flip is required. Tom’s highest finish was 8th place in Event #1. Ryan’s highest finish was 15th place in Event #2. David’s highest finish was last night at Event #6 with an 8th place finish. That means that we had to go to a second event to break the tie between Tom and David. Tom’s next best finish was 28th place at Event #6 and David’s next best finish was 24th place at Event #2. That means David Schumeister gets the 32nd spot for the Delaware Tour Championship!
