Thank you Eric and Sophie for opening your home and hosting the FLiPS event.  Very enjoyable time and unique collection of games. Nice twist switching from old school games to modern games later in the day. 

Great turnout of people traveling to compete.  It was nice to see some west coast and mid-state folks.  Special thanks to Brian D. For his help running the event.

Thanks again everyone!

42 competitors

Final 4

1 Jeff Palmer

Hurray Eric and Sophie for such a great event! Thanks for opening your great new game room to us! And what a tremendous effort to pull it all together this past week! (And, finally, congratulations to you both on your wedding! I apologize for not saying so much earlier.)

And to another Eric (Stone),

You showed that two strikes is not "done". Now, for me, three strikes was "done".

I am happy so many new folks did so well. I like seeing new faces on the leaderboards.
