NES Wins Metallica Bay Area Launch Party!
57 players showed up for the Metallica launch party, proving once again the Bay Area is a force to be reckoned with on the pinball scene. This event almost didn’t happen, but TJ Beyer and the IFPA made sure we could represent. Thanks to everyone who came out and proved it all worth it.
Repeat Pin a Go Go Champion Josh Lehan
Thanks to Per Schwarzenberger, Josh Warren, Dylan Eichenbaum, Ashley Woodworth, and Damien Charletty for helping with registration and score-keeping duties. Thanks also go to STERN Pinball and the Pacific Pinball Museum for providing prizes for the event.
I’ll have full results up in the next few days, but in the meantime, some quick results:
