TIM is the new City Champ!

City Champ 2015: PAPA Circuit - Free Gold Watch, SF, CA, USA

Tim Hansen of Sunnyvale, CA, came 2nd last year, and won it all this time around. He played clutch pinball and was a very worthy winner of the hoodie, some cash, and a plaque. Tim was also the top qualifier, and had play order choice throughout the playoffs.

Thank you to all players, volunteers, and others involved. See you again next year!
