Yeah, that’s another one on my list, but it is a long grind to reach it. The key is maximizing the lit ramp and orbit inserts to save time. I usually try to get the right ramp triplet done as fast as possible.

I think an Asylum banner is on a lot of the Florida Tournament Players’ lists.  Just a couple months away and there will be another shot at it. :)

The monster trophies and banners are pretty recognizable and desirable in our state  :)

I initially was posing the question more along the lines about game scores, particular modes, etc, but there are certainly other types of bigger picture pinball goals. 

For me:

1) I want to get back into the top 250/Power 100 list. I was there for a very, very brief time last year.

2) I would like to play in more circuit events. (Doing this more helps with 1)

For the region/State:

1) I want to help promote more tournament pinball in South Florida.  Thinking about another introduction to tournament pinball seminar and some beginner only events.

2) I want to create a dedicated space near my home for tournament pinball

3) I want to increase the overall community awareness of Florida Tournament Pinball in the State, not just localized club activities.  The Facebook page is helping with this. 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/960006820809365/

4) And of course support and grow FLiPS events. We already have 2 large annual events that now host IFPA tournaments.
