FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES Info Page for IFPA/SCS Players
« on: August 22, 2015, 07:55:51 AM »
Welcome! You are on the FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES info page.


NOTE: This is a unique division of FLiPS distinctly separate from the private FLiPS Membership.   Participation in FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES is not a guarantee of a specific membership level in FLiPS, nor are FLiPS Members or Prospects required to be part of FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES.


Please read the FAQ section of FLiPS for new changes effective January 1, 2016. 

Any questions please contact Jeff Palmer (pinballcorpse) via PM on this site. 

What is this new division?

The FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES consists of IFPA ranked players (www.ifpapinball.com) who over the most recent 12 months have demonstrated their support of FLiPS by wearing official FLiPS apparel while participating in IFPA tourneys in Florida.

The purpose of the FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES is to show pride in our pinball club and encourage more participation in competitive pinball at IFPA events in Florida and the State Championship Series (SCS).

Our motto:

"We play more pinball in one tournament than most people play in their lifetime"


These conditions MUST be met to be part of the FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES:

1) Your name must appear on the IFPA website in the most current SCS standings for Florida. (It's easy! For as little as $5 at most IFPA tourneys, you can play one tourney game and your name would be part of the ranking system.)

2) You must provide or post a photo of yourself in an official FLiPS shirt at an IFPA tourney anywhere in Florida. (If you need or want an official FLiPS shirt, please send a PM)


That's it.  Very simple. 


What if I live out of state and play in Florida tourneys.  Can I be part of the FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES

The IFPA has no rule about residency and the SCS.

Philosophically, a FLiPS SPECIAL FORCES player should mostly reside in Florida. Most competitors want the people battling it out for the SCS to live in the same state where they would potentially win the trophy.


-------------------------------
Ok, what do I do now?

For the 2015 SCS season, players have until December 31 to get involved and submit or post a photo in their FLiPS shirt at a tourney. 

Go to  www.ifpapinball.com  for a list of upcoming tourneys which are open to ANYONE.  You can also find your state ranking under the IFPA Championship Series Tab.

The next big multi-day show in 2015 with an IFPA event is Free Play Florida November 20-22.  Look for other IFPA events advertised at the Pinball Lounge, The Pinball Asylum and other venues in Florida.

Support competitive pinball in Florida!

The list has been revised to add Carlos Porta to the official top 16 in the SCS in Florida.  The results of the Pinball Lounge Tourney recently posted, and Carlos moved up to 15th in the SCS with his 3rd place finish earning him 7.83 points. 

Good Job!

I am VERY proud of our club's performance at Pinburgh! The FLiPS players had the SECOND highest winning percentage of all club affiliations participating in Pinburgh.  Special acknowledgement to Carlos Porta LOS for being the MVP!
