Remember last year when we told you about the Flip Cup Guys and their sanctioning of the inaugural World’s Largest Flip Cup Tournament (WLFCT)? Well , they are back at it again, this year they are moving the tournament to none other than Las Vegas, Nevada. And not only will it be held in Sin City but the tournament will be held inside the Hooters Casino Hotel on October 11, 2009.
The second annual tournament will feature 64-teams consisting of six players playing in an NCAA March madness style bracket of eliminations. Six-person teams and spectators can sign-up at Flip Cup Guys. (Registration has only been open for three days and they already have 11 states represented in the tournament field.) Registration fees are $30 per player or $25 per spectator and include entry to the tournament, a 3-hour open beer bar and free game play beer. Take a look at last year’s tournament held in New York City,
