First State Flippers Presents: The first ever Delaware Tour Championship!

First State Flippers is on a mission to make Delaware a hotbed for tournament pinball. In order to accomplish that I believe the Tour Championship is a step in the right direction and fellow pinballers will hopefully agree! Details of the Delaware Tour Championship are below:

  • First State Flippers will be hosting 6 Delaware IFPA events in 2018 (dates listed below)
  • Each event will award “tour points” based off of overall finish at each event
  • Each event will have $4 per entry deducted and allocated to the “Tour Championship” prize fund
  • At the end of the year, the top 32 players based off of “tour points” will qualify for the Tour Championship finale with ONE STIPULATION, players must attend AT LEAST 3 of the Delaware events in order to participate in the Tour Championship
  • The Tour Championship finale will be held on 12/1
  • The Tour Championship finale IS IFPA SANCTIONED
  • The Tour Championship prize pool is currently estimated to be around $1500 for the finale
  • The Tour Championship finale will have a $20 entry fee, with 100% of that entry fee being returned to the Tour Championship prize fund
  • The Tour Championship finale will pay out the top 4 positions only
  • The Tour Championship winner will be taking home an estimated $800 cash for 1st place
  • Second place will take home an estimated $350
  • Third place will take home an estimated $200
  • Fourth place will take home an estimated $150
  • THIS IS AN IFPA CIRCUIT SERIES

And now for some numbers for everyone to see for 2018 in regards to Delaware Tournament Pinball! All numbers are based on 6 events with an average of 36 entries per event:

  • $7500 in total fees will be collected
  • $216 total IFPA fees will be collected
  • $864 total in Tour Championship fees will be collected
  • $1080 total expense fees will be collected (food, beverage, etc)
  • $5340 total prize fund money remaining after all fees deducted (trophy fees still need to come out of total prize fund)
  • NOTE - All numbers subject to change and based on past averages

Finally, the First State Flippers wants to try and help support our future Delaware State Pinball Champion winners by assisting them with expenses for flights and hotel for the Nationals that are held in Vegas each year. In doing so, we will be holding 50/50 raffles at each event this year with hopes of raising money for the 2018-2019 champion. 50% of the proceeds will go to the winner of the 50/50, and the remaining proceeds will be awarded to the winner of next years Delaware State Championship. Let’s make pinball great again in the State of Delaware!
