Pie and Fudge snowboarding Episode 2- Full Moon Monster Hunters

YouTube Preview Image

Trailer Tom aka TT aka Pie, and Ffej Knar aka Fudge, aka the Pigeon Enthusiast head up to snowboard in the moonlight in the backcountry of the Rocky Mountains. 


Filmed on March 11, 2017 (the night before a full moon). Pie and Fudge meet up with a full moon research team in search of a strange creature that prowls at night during full moon cycles.

Full moon fever is on full blast while snowboarding in the dark.
Monster hunters gather around a campfire to share stories of the beast.

A rare glimpse of the creature was caught on film that night, but lowlight capabilities of the cameras made it difficult to get a clear look at the beast.

Nate Dogggg returns for first chair Loveland Opening Day 2016-2017

Nate Dogggg First Chair Loveland Opening Day 2016-2017
 video link:

YouTube Preview Image

November 1, 2016
Nate Dogggg and Tom drive to Loveland to see how snowmaking is coming along as the forecast is expected to be cooler than most of October. 

Nate and Tom forecast the resort is a week from opening as the snowmakers at Loveland have been making great progress despite the warm temperatures.

November 4, 2016
Loveland announced they will not open the weekend of November 5, 2016 , but will make an opening day announcement on Monday November 7.


November 7, 2016
Loveland announced in a press release that opening day of the 2016-2017 snowboard season will officially be Thursday November 10, 2016


November 9, 2016
Nate Dogggg and Zach Griffin (aka Z-Griff) arrive at the Loveland parking lot at 3pm and officially get in line for 1st chair at 3:15pm. Trailer Tom arrives just before midnight.

Here is a link to some footage Zach shot of the triumphant return of Nate Dogggg’s return to first chair and getting in line at Loveland.

We met and became friends with a crew that is now know as the “pajama squad”. A group of friends that met at Loveland 3 years ago. Olivia Hall, Michael Kin, and Abby Meyers. The trio had animal themed onesie pajamas that they wore all night and onto the slops. 2nd chair honors go to Olivia Hall, Michael Kin, and Abby Meyers. 



Oct 10, 2016 (Opening Day Loveland)

Another great success for the PinPin crew for 1st chair at opening day at the second resort in North America to officially open for the season as A-Basin won the race as first to open.

Here is a link to some footage Tom shot of the A-Basin Opening Day Nate Dogggg’s retirement from 20 consecutive first to open in the Nation streak.

Tom had a mini Star wars pinball machine on the chairlift. 

This year first chair at Loveland was officially held by Nate Dogggg, Z-Griff, and Trailer Tom.

Thanks to all that supported us in our 1st chair efforts!

The first chair experience Arapahoe Basin Opening Day 2016-2017 season

1st Chair Arapahoe Basin October 21, 2016 Opening Day of the 2016-2017 season Trailer Tom and Justin SmithGroPro Camera Footage

Mission for 1st chair of the 2016-2017 Snowboard Season
1) October 11, 2016

Trailer Tom and Justin Smith drive to Loveland and Arapahoe Basin and take pictures and gather dates and report to Nate Dogggg.

It is decided that it will be next week before either resort has enough snow to open.

2) Wednesday October 19, 2016

Two days before opening day.

Nate Dogggg finds a Facebook announcement from Arapahoe Basin’s COO Alan Henceroth that says ABasin will open for the season on Friday October 21. Nate Dogggg notifies the first char team of the official opening date.

Justin Smith is the first to arrive in line at Arapahoe Basin at 3:30pm. He is joined shortly after by Zach Griffin (aka Z-Griff), and Trailer Tom makes it to Arapahoe Basin around 10:30pm

The first char team experiences a cold first night in line with temperatures dipping to about 20 degrees with a light but steady wind and all snowguns on full blast.

3) Thursday October 20, 2016

One day until opening day.

The 4th member for the 4 man chair lift Seth Hill arrives at Arapahoe Basin parking lot to join the first chair team (aka Nate Dogggg 1st Chair STAFF, aka the 4G Network)

Trailer Tom, Z-Griff, Justin Smith, and Seth Hill , play the Flash pinball machine and snowboard themed Monopoly to pass the time as they await opening day.

Around 11pm about a dozen cars arrive on “the beach” the parking area at the base of the Black Mountain Express lift.

Excitement builds as a snowboard family reunion of sorts takes place when more and more enthusiasts gather around the base of the lift to celebrate the big opening day.

4) Friday October 21, 2016

Opening Day is upon us once again. Arapahoe Basin Celebrates 70 years.

Justin Smith, Zach Griffin (Z-Griff), Seth Hill, and Trailer Tom are the first chair crew for the 4 man lift ride at 9am.

Special thanks to all of the ABasin employees, and awesome friends that were willing to brave the chilly all night sift, and of course Ace Accetturo, Gretchen Pleshaw, Mr Epic, Cesar Hermosillo, Ashley Prill, Patrick O’Sullivan, Mike Gagliardi, Kelly, David Pleshaw

We could not have done it without the hard work and leadership of the king of first chair himself Nate Dogggg for all the pre first chair preparation.

date announced for 6th Annual PinPin Women Only Pinball Tournament Las Vegas PHoF

Women only Vegas Pinball Tournament Flyer 6

Facebook event link:
https://www.facebook.com/events/573933382787324/

6th Annual PinPin Women Only Pinball Tournament Las Vegas PHoF

1st place is a brand new in box Stern Pinball Machine shipped to you, plus a trophy!

2nd place= Cash plus trophy
3rd place =Cash plus trophy

This years tournament will take place on a Saturday.

Here are more details…

-PinPin Women’s Only Pinball Tournament-

What : Girls Only Pinball Tournament

When/Date: Saturday, May 20, 2017

What Time: Arrive at the Pinball hall of Fame to check in at 11:00am Tournament Starts at Noon on Saturday, May 20, 2017

Registration: Registration will take place at the Pinball Hall of Fame day of the tournament. Possibly some pre-registartion during the PinPin Open (Men and Women) tourney on May 19, 2017

Who can enter: Female Competitors ONLY. An open men and women’s tournament will be held on Friday the day before this women’s only event (also at the PHoF).

Where: Pinball Hall of Fame
1610 E. Tropicana
Las Vegas NV 89119

Entry Fee: $40.00 Plus cost of games played** 40 bucks gets you into the tournament, and some “PinPin” Pinball film Swag upon arrival at the tournament while supplies last.

**(Players pay out of their own pocket for every game they play in the tournament. )
Format: Double Elimination.
Games: All Pinball Games at Pinball Hall of Fame can be used in the tournament. Must be a pinball machine that is able to keep score See this link for a list of games:
pinballmuseum.org/

How it works: To begin the tournament, players are randomly matched up for one-on-one rounds, by drawing names out of a hat. Each round is best 2 out of 3.

Each round will begin with a coin flip. Ultimately the coin flip will result in what player will pick “A and what player will pick “B”. The winner of the coin flip will have first choice of A,B, or C; Loser gets second leftover choice of A or B.
A= what machine will be played,
B= order of play (going first or second),
C=pass your choice to the other person. (to have your opponent make first choice)

The LOSER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round, gets first choice of again, A,B, or C. The WINNER of each game played during the best 2 out of 3 round gets second leftover choice of again A or B.

You are only allowed to pick your “favorite machine” one time throughout the tournament. In other words, throughout the tournament players can not pick the same pinball machine twice, and players have to pick an open machine to play. No picking your “ace in the hole” machine over and over and over again.

Example: If Tom chooses to play Attack From Mars, Tom can not CHOOSE Attack From Mars for the remainder of the tournament. Tom could end up playing Attack From Mars later in the tournament if Toms opponent were to choose Attack From Mars.

Extra Balls: Will be plunged and not played. No flipping, before or after ball is plunged. You can line up a skill shot with the plunger, but no flipping before ball is launched.

Only 3 balls per game will be scored: Some of the pinball machines have 5 balls per play. To speed up the pace of the tournament, only 3 balls out of the 5 balls will be scored to determine the winner of the match. (some older games have 5 balls, some of the new Sterns at the Pinball Hall of Fame are set to 5 balls)

Final Round: During the final round the winner of the losers bracket will play the winner of the winners bracket. The winner of the losers bracket must beat the winner of the winners bracket TWICE (must win 2 whole ROUNDS) to win 1st place in the tournament.

In this format, even if you loose every time you step up to a machine you will at very least get to play 4 times in the tournament.

During tournament play for purposes of Player Conduct, Machine Malfunction, Stuck Balls, Errors, or Rulings, all final decisions will be made on a case by case basis by Tournament director and host Trailer Tom.

You may play the best ball of your life and your score may not count, due to game malfunction. As the saying goes “That’s pinball” and keep in mind we are playing games that are “on location”.

P.S. Tournament Rule notes/updates for this year are as follows….

NO MAJOR CHANGES.

The limitation of games to 3 balls (5 ball games will only be scored to end of ball 3) is still in effect.

No kind of “have to pick an EM Electro-Mechanical” rule

There is now a ONE MINUTE time limit on making your selection of game. Must play an open game (no waiting for your favorite machine)

In the unlikely event that the tournament can not be completed by the time the PHoF closes on Saturday, the tournament will spill over into the next day.

Slam tilt will most likely result in the player that committed the slam tilt to lose and the player that did not slam tilt to win unless an obvious machine malfunction occurred.

Games may not work 100% so if a game becomes unplayable during at match, a new game may have to be selected.

As this is a tournament oat a location that is open to the public, guys are allowed to “coach” their ladies when their ladies are not in the middle of playing a ball. In other words, tournament directors can not regulate talking, just don’t stand over a ladies shoulder while she is playing a ball and coach on what shots to hit. Ladies are perfectly capable to play the games on their own for frigs sake!

On Site Methods of payment:
1) Cash and only Cash- Will be accepted during on-site registration and is our only available method of payment.
