The Manitoba pinball tournament season has begun. We had 18 players including a few new people come out to the curling club along with many of the regulars & veterans, including at least 2 out of town veterans who regularly come a long way to make this truly the Manitoba Pinball League.
We welcomed back David Morris with a card signed by many league members. And it must’ve been a source of inspiration because Dave was the tournament winner! Dave & Jay W went head to head in a final 2 with Dave having only 1 strike to Jay’s 2 strikes. Jay won on Monopoly & was riding a streak of 6 1st places in a row. In the final deciding round, it came down to the very last ball in a close game of The Addams Family, but Dave was able to end Jay’s streak for the win.
Ian G & Grant Z played a 3rd place match on Space Shuttle, with Ian winning & taking the final spot on the podium.
Honourable mention goes to Hugh L who finished in 5th place in his 1st ever MPL tournament!
