On Saturday August 1st, 2015, the 4th annual TPSF flip cup tournament, Flipnik 2015, was held at Milltown Tavern. The event brought together 20 four person teams to compete in the competition for hand-crafted championship trophies and t-shirts. The competition began with Pool play, divided into 5 pools with 4 teams each. Several teams went undefeated during pool play, including We Like it When You Go Down, The Big Frobowskis, Flips For Nips, The Flipstones, and BIMP. In fact, Flips For Nips didn’t lose a single game in pool play (forshadowing?)
In single-elimination Bracket Play, All 20 teams moved on and were seeded based on their records in pool play. Two underdog teams, 2 Girls 1 Flipcup and TMNT, who were both 1-2 in pool play advanced to the Final Four. To join them there, were B’s Bangin Beyotches (2-1) and Flips For Nips (3-0). In fact, the latter two teams met in the Championship Match, which was a 4 out of 7 game Survivor-style match in which players were eliminated until there was 1 participant left to determine the winner! Flips For Nips came out victorious and took home the Championship Trophies!
In addition to the great competition, there was lots of other fun and entertainment throughout the afternoon. The Flipstones (a la Barny Rubble) took home the Best Team Costume/Theme while several other prizes were given out to spectators and fans alike.
Even more awesome, the lovely Amanda Walk sold Jell-O shots during the event and South Season Company sold burgers and dogs, with all of that money going to support Best Buddies of Georgia! In just a few short hours, we raised $560 to support this great charity!
