Forth Friday Night Knockout

Forth Friday Night Knockout was a great success at Forth .

We had 26 players in attendance and 16 of the 18 tables were in play for the night.

Here are a few people that came early to get in some practice games prior to the event starting.

 

 

 

Our winners of the night were (left to right)

Grant in 2nd, Trevor in 1st and Dan in 3rd place. Grant really made Trevor work for first place, as he played against him from round 10 to the 15th round.

You can see how everyone placed at the tournament at Matchplay.Events

We have a league night coming up on Thursday Mar 22 2018 at Forth starting at 7pm. Remember to bring 2 dollars for admin fees and about 10 to 12 bucks in loonies and quarters for the coin drop on the machines. Everyone is welcome.

 

Thanks to David Morris of Manitoba Pinball and Mark Jaslowski of Phantom Amusement for providing the pins, and Forth for hosting this popup arcade in their space.

Lightning Arcade Weeknight Knockout!

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!

Provincial Championship Series Winner (PCS)

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.

Hey Folks,

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.
