We are always looking at how to improve things with the site and event information.
One thing we are testing out is a new way of posting the Events. Currently there is a new page with Trial Calendar and its using Google Calendars. There is a link on the page to add this calendar to either iCal or Google Calendar so you have the most current version active at all time on your end.
We have also added a Code of Conduct to the site which is your IFPA rules with a few extra additions as well. Please take a moment to read it.
We are also setting up a firstname.lastname@example.org email so that if you have issues / concerns at an event and would prefer to email us we can help you from there.
And lastly some people have an issue clicking on a link on your smart device, if you have auto rotate active, pivot the device into landscape and you should be able to click your link, again a code issue. Will also mention on the trial calendar page in landscape you get a little blurb added to the date box as there is a bit more room to populate it.
Another PCS day has come & gone. We celebrated birthdays, we ate some wonderful food, & we of course played some friendly, yet competitive pinball in order to crown a Manitoba champion.
Congratulations to Drew S who captured the 2020 IFPA Manitoba PCS title! Drew went 4-0, 4-2, 4-3, & 4-0 en route to the championship. Drew defeated defending champion Jay W, who took 2nd place & the silver plaque. 3rd place & the bronze plaque went to Ian G who defeated Garth B in the bronze match.
Happy birthday to Grant, who celebrated his birthday on PCS day! And Happy birthday to Marcel who will be celebrating on Tuesday!
A big thank you to Mark of Phantom Amusement & his wife who graciously hosted us for the 2020 IFPA Manitoba Provincial Championship Series in their brand new house.

TONIGHT, watch the CBC local news at 6pm, as I (Jay) will be shown on a segment called Eye On Manitoba which will probably air around 635pm. We went to the Good Will Social Club this afternoon & talked about pinball, my journey winning the PCS, how to play, & more.
