Dutch Pinball Open 2013
Posted on November 4, 2013
Last weekend the Dutch Pinball Open was held and Pinball Magazine was present with a small stand. The lovely Melanie Morren hosted the stand on Saturday, together with editor Jonathan Joosten. Ciske Vreuls and Errol Klein from www.zeldzameflippers.nl brought in a Sharpshooter and a Party Animal pinball machine, which were set up on each side of the stand. Apparently not everybody understood why those games, so here’s the reasoning: Sharpshooter is designed by Roger Sharpe, who featured in the cover story of Pinball Magazine No. 1. Party Animal is an early Dennis Nordman design, who is featured in the cover story of Pinball Magazine No. 2.
As for the tournament Zach Shapre, son of the earlier mentioned Roger Sharpe, won from Dutch Taco Wouters in a best of three final. Zach won on Indianapolis 500, Taco won on Scared Stiff and Zach won on Spiderman. Congratulations!
