Nick Lane wins Flippin’ with the Greats Buffalo, is bound for Vegas

Through more than four hours of match-play pinball, Nick Lane took first place in the A Division at the Flippin’ with the Greats charity fundraiser on Dec. 13 at Pocketeer Billiards in Buffalo.

By winning, Nick earned a free entry to represent the Buffalo Bills at the Flippin’ with the Greats Grand Final Playoffs, March 27-29, 2015, at the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. These players will compete for WPPR points and $45,000 in prizes including a brand new pinball machine.

In B Division, Andrew LaFica took first place, followed by Joe Libutti, second place and Derek Muench, third place.

The tournament raised $580 for Mike Ditka’s Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, which provides financial grants and ‘pro bono’ medical assistance to retired NFL players in dire need.
