The 2019 Manitoba Pinball League season has officially concluded. Congratulations to Ian G who is our new MPL champion!!!!! Ian won 4 games to 2 against Marcel T who took 2nd place.

3rd went to Jay W who won 2-1 against Grant Z who was looking to make it 2 3rd places in a row after finishing 3rd in the 2018 MPL championship, & who was looking to find his pants too I think.¬†ūüėČ

The remaining places went as follows:

5th – David Morris
6th – Drew S
7th – Samara M
8th – Rick E

9th – Michael C, Derek W, Dave W, Lance W, Garth B, Dan F, David Mi, Jody L

Jay W also received his plaque for finishing the season in 1st place with the most league points.

Congratulations to ALL!!!!! There were a lot of strong games played in the 3rd & final rounds, even in a losing cause. Thank you all for making the 2019 season one to remember. We look forward to seeing you in 2020!

In the meantime, there is still at least 1 more tournament in 2019. Next up, some MPL players will be heading down to Fargo to play with our friends across the border in the Fargo Billiards Strike Tournament on Saturday November 30th. Although the vehicle heading down is currently full, feel free to drive down & join the crew. Or if you’re interested in joining should a spot in the vehicle open up, contact David – you can email: dave@manitobapinball.com

On Sunday, November 24 we will crown a winner of the league playoffs. Later that night there is a different league crowing a winner. To help everyone watch the Grey Cup we are hoping to complete as many rounds as possible on Friday, November 22.

I am reposting this as Blue and Gold look good on a jersey it might be hard to read on a website.
