Big thanks to everybody who made it to Hi-Life for another awesome night of pinball, and congratulations to our champion Darren Ensley, who celebrated his second ever first place tournament finish!
Second place went to Jonathan Z. Bair, who was on fire all evening. Andreas Haugstrup Pedersen took third, and Mark Birsching finished in fourth. Novice champion went to Jared Garvey, who was also our novice champion at last month's Hi-Life tournament and won first place at last week's Set Phasers to Flip (WPPRs). The way he's been playing lately, I don't think Jared will be eligible for novice awards very much longer!
And special thanks to everybody who helps make these events possible, most of all TJ for providing us all these wonderful machines to play, and of course the whole crew at Hi-Life for hosting us! My gratitude goes out also to Mark, for his mid-tournament machine fixes in TJ's absence, Andreas, for creating the awesome MatchPlay software that makes running these tournaments a breeze and for helping out with scorekeeping last night, and Zac for taking a much, much nicer photo of our winners than I had any chance of managing.
