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.
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
Some games in play that night were
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.
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.
