NorCal Solid State is a hit!

26 players showed up for the first (of hopefully many) NorCal Solid State. We played only Solid States (and 1 EM…) machines and the competition lasted 13 rounds/4 hours. Echa Schneider came over from Oakland and totally killed it! After 13 rounds, she had only accumulated 6 strikes, which was way ahead of the competition. Congrats Echa!

Thanks to all participants for coming out, and extra special thanks to the officials, Andreas and Brian for doing such a great job making sure the rules were followed.

Echa won cash and a very cool shirt from FreeGoldWatch!


Top 8 finishers. Brian, Allison, Echa, Ryan, Simon, Andreas, Per. (Tony had to leave early.)


Damien is trying his luck on Taxi.
