Twin Cities Tournament

Well folks, a few of us decided to take a trip and participate in a tournament in Minnesota at the Tilt Pinball Bar . It was a bit of a long haul as 6 of us loaded up to leave on Sunday at 4.am to head down for the event at 4.30.pm registration time.

We were in Minneapolis by noon, so we stopped for some lunch and and a wander at the Mall of America. After our leg stretch and refill we headed over to the bar for 2.30pm.

Arriving at Tilt Pinball Bar was great. A huge line up of machines and all of them were priced at $0.25. That is right 25 cents per play! Now you cant go wrong as 6 bucks got me though warm up practice and the tournament itself, leaving me with a few quarters at the end of the night.

There were 53 people playing in the event, and some were ranked in the top 400 of the IFPA standings. Alas we didn’t make it to the top 3, but we did give it our all and enjoyed every minute. People at the location were awesome, food and drink were awesome, and the tables played great.

When we wrapped up at 9.30pm we loaded up for the drive back to Winnipeg. We made a few stops on the way back but got in at 5.30.am Monday. Was a long day, but well worth it.

League Night at Skullspace

We would like to thank everyone who came out last night to play some pinball.

We had 24 people total on site and 10 games. Unfortunately one game went down early in the evening leaving us with 9 to work with, but it was definitely enough.

The new league standing have been posted and there has been some movement in the top 16 rankings. Remember in December the top 16 qualify to be in the playoffs for the league champion.

Again a big thank you to Skullspace for having us on location. The tables will remain onsite for a little while, so please make sure you contact the guys at Skullspace to see when they might be there and if you may be able to drop in with some change and play a few games.

IFPA points and Manitoba PCS (Provincial Championship Series)

Hello and good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. I chatted with the Canadian representative from the IFPA and he clarified some questions I had for us in Manitoba about collecting IFPA points. I asked the question if one or more of us were to travel to Minnesota or Saskatchewan or Alberta or wherever and participate in a IFPA tournament would those points go towards your Manitoba PCS (Provincial Championship Series) top 16 WPPR total. That answer was no and that makes sense. So only IFPA points collected in Manitoba will go towards the top 16 PCS the Saturday following Super Bowl next year in 2018. However any IFPA points collected out of province will indeed improve your overall ranking and put you in the running for that province or state’s PCS. So hopefully that clears up any questions anyone might have regarding our 1st Manitoba PCS coming up in February 2018 (different from the Manitoba Pinball League playoffs which will be held in December 2017). If after reading this and it still doesn’t make sense, please don’t hesitate to email me so I can discuss further with you.

Thanks Dave

We have a tournament coming up at The Good Will Social again. Your will need to buck up a 10 spot to participate and there are a limited number of spaces. Keep in mind that because you need to buy a ticket to get in, you have a chance at winning a cash prize. And sorry you will need to bring some change to play the machines as they will not be on free play.

Also a change of venue for a league night in the future months. We will be making a trek out to Winnipeg Beach. Make sure you have some flip flops and are ready for the heat!
