To Celebrate 1 Year of the Pinball Orlando Players Club, we're inviting all past champions to Participate in a Special Tournament that Day!

More Rules to follow, but we hope to have it consist of at least 2 rounds of 5 Games, with a PAPA style points system (similar to the last POPs event Tournament)

Still working out the details, but Randy was gracious enough to agree to also host our Tournament of Champions

Most likely a bit before the Full POPs on the 3rd (or earlier, probably 12-3pmish, details TDA).

The list of Champions on the Cup is...

Spencer (Miracleman)
Kurt Van Zyl
Julia Neumann
Al Neumann
John I
Buck Stine
Matt
Johnny (Chilidog)

Please RSVP guys if you can make the date.  We will have to plan groups and such around the number of participants and if everyone can make it. 

This decides who keeps the 2013 Cup as we will retire it for a new one!

Thanks again!

Cool.  This sounds like a great idea.  Fortunately I don't see anything on the horizon that would keep me from being there either!

That is a tough list of competitors too.

"I'M OKAY TO GO!"

I enjoyed the new points system at Brian's, but I think if started a bit earlier it would be more fun to do the TOP 2 from each round move on.

Dang.  Well I guess you guess are spared...  I have to go back to Los Angeles and will be on the plane back on the 3rd.  Oh well barring a change of plans the POPS 2013 Cup will not reside at my house.

I am waiting to hear details from Buck regarding the IFPA tourney they have advertised for this POPs event.

Hmmmm. I heard a rumor of this, but I didn't think it would be this soon.  I hope a lot of thought has been put into this, because I hate to see a "for fun" event turned into something it wasn't meant to be.

I was surprised to see it on the IFPA calendar as well. That is why I asked Buck what was going on.

sorry to hear that John :(.  Let me know if anything changes!

If everything goes fairly smooth like previous events, it should be great!

I'll be on a plane home from LA.   I almost took a red eye to be home on Saturday, but I can't sleep well on planes so I would have been toast all day anyway.  Good luck in the Tournament.  I'll look forward to hearing the results.
