Get your cell phones ready. Dialed In is coming to Forth at 171 McDermot Ave. for a LAUNCH PARTY and tournament on Saturday March 17th. We will be taking the game out of the box at 11am. The tournament will start at 1pm and go until 11pm! It will be a top score based tournament. No fee to enter just pay per play. The more you play the better your chances of winning a prize. We will have a Dialed In poster as well as some Jersey Jack Pinball T-Shirts and even some Manitoba Pinball League T-Shirts to give away! The top 5 scores get a prize at 11pm. You don’t have to be there the whole time to claim your prize either. We will contact you if you are not present at the end of the Launch Night. The other games will of course be on as well to keep you occupied between turns on Dialed In as well Forth has a great food and drink menu for one and all. Come on out and lets make this a day to remember for pinball in Manitoba!
We had a great turnout last night at Lighting Arcade. There were 22 people in the tournament and Dave had 13 of his machines in play.
The top 3 winners of the night were:
1st – Garth Babisky
2nd – Dan Feriolo
3rd – Trevor Whatman
A full listing of the players and placing are on Matchplay.Events
A big thank you to Dave for allowing us to play on his personal machines at his home! And here is a message from Dave on how the night went.
Well we had a great time at Lightning Arcade on Thursday night. It took a little longer then normal on a weeknight then I thought it would but we finished up between 11pm – 12am. After the battle was done Garth Babisky came in 1st, and Dan Feriolo came in 2nd (And this was only his 3rd tournament played and first since July last year at the beach) and Trevor Whatman finished 3rd! He has consistently been in the top 3 for the past number of tournaments. I know his eyes are set on 1st but I know it will come soon. We had 4 games go down (one came back Split Second and was used as the second last game in the tournament) and a couple games have things break but still playable and I learned that a couple of my games Star Trek and Medieval Madness the flippers get weak after extended use. So this is going to be addressed by not only rebuilding the flippers but doing a complete rebuild including BRAND NEW flipper coils as well. Space Shuttle was a hit (I don’t know how many times I had to go back to it and add more credits). We will try again in May at Lightning Arcade and the games will be working better than ever I promise!
Who was crowned Manitoba’s first CHAMPION?
Our man Jeff Jonuk placed 1st.
David Morris came in 2nd, and Tervor Whatman, poking out in the back of the shot placed 3rd.
We would have had David popping out in the shot as well, but he is the one taking the photo. If you look close you can see him in the reflection on the trophy.
Thanks to Jason and Angela for allowing us to host the event on their wonderful collection of machines.

Just want to remind you guys of the upcoming tournament at Winnipeg Beach this Saturday July 15th. All the details are on the Events Calendar.
We also have the link for the event. As it goes live you can see who is playing who on what machine and how many strikes they have. This is also handy for the participants at the venue so they can also see where they stand.
We are using Matchplay, and its been doing a great job for us keeping our tournaments flowing smoothly.

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.
