If you have not done so already, please RSVP for Marcel/Ian's FLiPS this weekend.  This will help the hosts in planning for drinks and food and of course the tourney.  I see there are some nice trophies for the event.

You can respond to me via email or text or post here.

If you have already posted or responded, thank you!

Thank you Ian and family, and also to Marcel and Dilayla for all your hard work on this.  Very unique tourney format and nice trophies.

7 teams of 2 worked together to try and earn the largest composite score on 12 individual games. In each round 2 games were played.  One game was played by the captain, one by the apprentice. Switching of games between the 2 players on a team was permitted ball to ball if desired.

The catch was that each ball was timed using a Monaco standup driving game played alternately each round by one team. If the ball drained, the player stopped and waited before plunging the next ball.  Otherwise, time was called when the driving game ended. The driving game had a max time of about 90 seconds, so each ball could not exceed that time.  Games were 4 balls, so max game/round time was about 6 minutes.

At the end of 7 rounds the 2 teams that emerged were

Jeff P./Tatiana: top qualifying team  906,085,100
2nd Joel/Ian 764,514,265

Remaining teams

3rd Dave/Dilayla 729,782,577
4th Carlos/Anna 625,563,906
5th Sebastian/Diana 439,945,747
6th Christian/Lola 334,532,931
7th Mike/Jeff G. 295,821,535

(The nonzero last digit was because the Monaco score added to the overall score)

The top 4 players played a single game to determine the final 4 positions and walk away with the trophies.

Final results

1st Joel
2nd Jeff P.
3rd Ian
4th Tatiana

The 4 players that battled for SG were

Christian
Lola
Mike
Jeff G.

Jeff G. Was awarded Super Grover and Mike won the match with a board score on T2!

Thanks to everyone who showed up, and thanks to the hosts.

See everyone next time.
