TONIGHT, watch the CBC local news at 6pm, as I (Jay) will be shown on a segment called Eye On Manitoba which will probably air around 635pm. We went to the Good Will Social Club this afternoon & talked about pinball, my journey winning the PCS, how to play, & more.
CBWT (CBC Winnipeg) on cable, or watch from the CBC Manitoba Facebook page.
This happened as a result of a Facebook post yesterday where CBC asked “What was the top (personal) story in your life this year?” They read my comment on the radio too, which you can read below, or listen to this audio clip:
What was the top story in your life this year? Not a news story, your personal story?
Come celebrate the new year at the Forks! Let’s play some casual pinball together in the evening until just before midnight & then we’ll head outside for the countdown to 2020 & then the new year’s fireworks right at midnight. Drop in anytime at your leisure. Play in the Winter Selfie Challenge. Direct any questions to Jay W.
It was a great night for some championship pinball over at the new Lightning Arcade, as we crowned the second ever women’s league champion in Manitoba.
Congratulations to Jill H on not only being the league points champ, but also winning the MPL women’s league playoffs & securing the 2019 women’s championship! And if you think Jill’s playoff run to gold was as easy as her season run, think again. In the semifinal, Jill & Samara had a fight to the finish going the full 7 games with Jill edging out Samara by a mere 7,000 points in the final game of Split Second. In the final, Jill beat Jody, who claimed her 2nd silver plaque in 2 years.
In the bronze match, Tammy K & Samara M battled down to the final game of Medieval Madness in the best of 3 series, with both players leapfrogging the other & both scoring well over 30 million! In the end, Tammy captured the bronze plaque with a last ball comeback.
And congrats to Michelle F for winning the best Christmas sweater competition! Honourable mentions went to Tiffany V & Franca C.
