Rookie move…I forgot to take a photo. Trust me, they were all smiling.

Tournament broadcast now archived on our You Tube channel.

The tournament was broadcasted on our Twitch Channel and I’ve also archived the video on You Tube. The You Tube video has handy links in the description that helps you navigate to the start of each game and find the player you’d like to watch. Click ‘See More’ in the video’s description to see those timestamped links.

If you enjoyed watching, be sure to tune into our live coverage of the Women’s World Championship, North American Championship and Pin-Masters events all going down at Game Exchange March 5-8, 2020. So make sure you follow our Twitch Channel to be notified when we go live!

The final standings have been submitted (though not approved as of yet) to the IFPA and all players will receive Women’s WPPRs for their participation which will contribute to their rank in the Colorado Women’s State Championship standings.

And if you’re out of the loop – Yes! Colorado Women’s State Championship is now a thing. I will make a separate post with all the details you need to know for how to qualify and how to ensure your women’s leagues and tournaments contribute to the state standings.

CPC’s Creative Powerhouse: Paul “Spielberg” Preston

Colorado Pinball Collective’s Twitch stream just hit the 200th episode mark last Friday, April 19, 2019. To ring in the occasion Paul made another of his fantastic intro videos. In case you missed it live, I thought I’d post it here for all to enjoy.

Can you spot yourself in the video?

200th Episode Intro Video

Fun fact – in high school, when Paul wasn’t playing Addams Family at the local “Small” (aka small mall) in Bowling Green, OH, he was writing plays and making films that made his dear mother blush. Next time you run into him, ask him about the Paul and Opie movies or the “radio spot” (aka live broadcast from the principal’s office during the morning announcements) he wrote advertising his senior year play.

And if you still haven’t seen our Wednesday and Friday intro videos, I’ve posted those here as well.

And who could forget Xstream-mas?

Paul put on a real tour de force during the 11 days of Xstream-mas – streaming every day of his winter break from work, with Snow joining him for a special New Year’s Eve stream to cap the event.
