IFPA Colorado State Championship 2018-19

Today at 10:30am the top 24 players in Colorado will be battling at the 1up Colfax in a single elimination, best-of-seven bracket for the title of IFPA Colorado State Champion!

You can follow along with the winner’s bracket here. If you’d also like to see how the other 23 positions shake out, there are consolation brackets here.

The Great Reset 2019 at Wonderland

All of the Grand Champion scores have been reset at Wonderland Brewing! Those who have the GC score on each of the 12 machines at the end of January will win a free t-shirt and a beer! (Limit one t-shirt per person, though multiple beers can be won.)

I’m really loving this new hobby Neil has – screen printing.

Who doesn’t want to win this t-shirt??

2018 TWIPY Awards

Voting is now open for the 2018 TWIPY Awards (This Week in Pinball Yearly Awards). Run by This Week in Pinball, the TWIPY Awards recognize the efforts of game designers, artists, animators, manufacturers, podcasters, streamers, journalists and home-brewers as voted on by the pinball community. That’s you!

The TWIPY ballot is up and if you have a second, click this link and vote for “Colorado Pinball Collective” under “Favorite Pinball Twitch Streamer” (at the top of the second page). 

I mean how great was the NYE broadcast? All dolled up and keeping things classy while Paul talked about his dad always wearing clip-on ties, how that influenced his 1st formal dance attire and his date’s reaction. 

And then of course there was the 12 days of Xstreamas. I think we’ll all remember the hard lesson learned from eating blackberries on your in-law’s white couch.

So no pressure, but if you happen to enjoy the stream, all the wonderful Colorado collectors and incredible players who have played with us and the PinPals that result from all the streaming – we’d love a nod. Or vote for your actual favorite. 😉 #whocars

Be sure to write-in your favorite Colorado pinball location too!
