Elite U of O Flipcup Athletes
Once in a generation, the good lord reaches down from heaven and imparts his blessing on a unique soul. For all of us reading this today, that person is Casey Fucking Enstrom. He is the teet from which our tailgating thirst is quenched. The mountain spring of which the waterfall cascades down the landscape, and the rectum of which the perfect shit was shat.
The inventor of the famous R.F.I.D beer ballast system, Casey's impact on the tailgating world cannot be comprehended by the human mind. As the co-founder of Flipgate, Casey is one of two people in the known universe to physically give birth to a two ton party bus equipped with enough electronics to make Las Vegas say "Wow, that's a lot of electronics!"
It is Casey's dedication to a strict "No Problem" policy that separates Flipgate from other party crews. Originally imparted to a young Charles Enstrom back in the dark ages by Mike Walzl at Lake Shasta, it is his unwavering faith to this ancient creed that makes Flipgate a place where everyone can have a good time. Young, old, male, female or even Kardashian, all are welcome to our Flipgate home.
And no puking on the bus!
Corey Proctor, Chiropractor, is a legend in the tailgating community. As a founding member of Flipgate, Corey is not only a pillar in the chiropractic community, but an admired and revered consultant to all those dedicated to the field of tailgating.
Know to his friends as ‘Nitro’ - Corey shows both the party skills to pound a pint of ale in 5 seconds, but also the zen like patience to wait 25 minutes for a fucking pint of McMenamins Irish Stout on nitro. Of course as everyone knows, nitrogenation imparts a creamier, smoother texture to a beer, resulting in a finish that will soothe even the wildest beast.
When Corey is not working on the complex muscular physiques of elite Olympic athletes, he is busy creating and implementing ideas to make each tailgate a legendary experience that even the most seasoned veteran would write home to mom about.
His many skills have been well documented since the dawn of of time. A trick flip cup artist, he is a 5th degree black belt in the ’no-peekie,’ ’Sit-sie,’ and ‘reversie’ flipping styles. He has also developed a special breathing technique, that allows him to sit in a 101 degree hot tub for hours at a time.
His dedication to his craft makes Corey Proctor, Chiropractor, a Tailgating God amongst boys.
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!
Rhian Enstrom, a.k.a. T-Bone, is the self-proclaimed Flip Mother of the 'gate. A Flipgate OG, Rhian loves the smell of Jell-O shots in the morning, but only when accompanied by little chocolate donuts, and of course...scones.
Rhian spends her off-season searching for funky fresh hits to add to the bus ride mix, and practicing her reversie-no-peekie skills at her dining room table. She is looking forward to Team Snipe taking the coveted Golden Cup trophy two years in a row.
Rhian has a life goal of downing a 72 ounce steak. Go Ducks!
Kelsey: Flipgate's lil' sis. Desperately seeking nickname. Best known for making the local news, shown double-fisting champagne and Bud Light at 8am in the Masonic Lot. Loves to get razzed. Generally a slow pay. Excels at sneaking in a halftime nap, particularly in front of the Arctic Cove mister-fan. Kelsey is especially proud of having never puked in the bus...though there have been a few close calls (sorry about the bushes in front of your house, Rhian and Casey). "Taco Bell! Taco Bell! Taco Bell!"
As the Executive Chef of Flipgate, BJ’s contribution to our tailgate extends beyond the realm of spots D1 and D2. Known by many for his ability to marinate his meat, it is often that BJ finds himself at home spending hours upon hours prepping to feed a bus full of ravenous drunk idiots. If you are in the mood for artisanal cheeses with organic caprese salad, BJ’s got you covered. If you want Kalua pork over fried rice, BJ’s your man. Or if all you want is some raw chicken or maybe a burnt hot dog, he can do that too. BJ works that grill like a pimp works his ho.
Sean (aka: Hitman) Is the worlds leading authority on Partying All Night. Combining a mix of smoking and drinking, Sean parties well with those around him. With a strong passion for bus rides, flip cup, football, and pushing rickshaws, he is always down to party. CEO of DSTAS (Drink Smoke Take A Shot) a non profit organization that specializes in feeling good!
Heather is a South African immigrant, but is a Duck at heart! With close ties to elite DUCK ALUMNI, Heather is know for random tailgate appearances, 1,000 yard stares, and preferring sprints to marathons. She can talk an old mason out of his last can of oil to ensure that ALL bus amenities are running smoothly. It's rare for her to turndown a game of FLIP, and she is experienced in making special beer runs. She throws a great spiral, tears down THE GATE, and when all opt for Taco Bell... she's all about that beef jerky! No treble!
Anthony is a chosen Flipgate Champion known for christening the bus and devouring the virginity of this sacred vehicle. Also having his fluid way with front left tire on occasion, Anthony knows the bus in and out. He currently holds a valid CDL license to drive drunk assholes home from a long day at the Gate. Anthony also obtained the record for most tailgates without owning an actual bus. He's the king of raging with the ability of manhandling a Crunch Wrap Supreme while still getting his beauty sleep on the ride home. Markey is absolutely a Flipgate All-Star!
Sarah, founder of "Back-Right", began her Flipgate career in 2008 during the pre-bus era, from the humble days of C18/C19 to the glory days of the present located at D1/D2. Over the past several years she has become one of the top flipcup players in North America (ranked 5th overall in North America, and 3rd overall USA last year). She excels in the "one time" flip that has earned her the honor of team anchor as well as the nicknames "Game 7" and "Sniper".
You can find her at the 'Gate sharing her talents as sous chef, discount double-checker, queen of resting bitch face, CTO and water control engineer. Watch for her avoiding throngs of pervs, yelling at people to use two hands, letting bungees fly, taking money from strangers and flipping those cups.
Sniper, no sniping!
