June 13, 2013

Francisco concentrates…

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:

    Huge thanks to you and TJ and everyone else who was involved. It was such a packed affair and I had my worst game of Metallica ever, but still pretty damn great to participate :)
