Many of the state tournaments were listed on challonge so we were able to follow the progress across the country including the River City Flippers members who qualified and played in North Carolina.
The North Carolina State Championship was held in the amazing Flippers arcade. River City Flippers had two members playing in the North Carolina field. Malik came in fourth and Kevin came in tenth.
