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.

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.
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!

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!
