Friday, December 3 at AMCC (940 Vimy Rd) 6:30pm start time $2 entry: Casual League starts back up.

We will play 8 games with 4 points going to 1st, 3 points for 2nd and 2 points for 3rd and 1 point for 4th. At the end of 8 games, the 3 with the most points win 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

Saturday, January 15, 2022 at Phantom Amusement 7:00pm start time $2 entry : Manitoba Pinball League 4th season

The Manitoba Pinball League is a monthly event. Each month we play 8 games against random opponents each round. 5 points going to 1st, 3 points for 2nd and 2 points for 3rd, and 1 point for 4th. Point totals for each event get added to your running total. After 10 events the top 16 point earners qualify for the playoffs. Your top 8 scores will count for the final tally. This allows you to miss a month or two and bounce back from a bad event.

2022 marks the return of IFPA points. Play in the league and tournaments to earn IFPA points based on placement in an event. Top 16 in December compete for the Provincial Championship. Where the winner represents Manitoba at The North American Championship.
