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

The casual league is a great place to experience competitive pinball. The rules on asking for help on games are reduced to help learn the games. In the past we had several children come out to play in the casual league.

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.

2022 Women’s League Season begins

 

March League Nights Postponed

In light of recent events with the coronavirus pandemic, the MPL staff had a discussion & came to the difficult decision to postpone the next 3 events, at public locations. With ALL the facts, it was clear this was the best thing to do. The following will be postponed: Friday March 13 – casual league Saturday March 14 – open league Monday March 16 – women’s league We have come to this conclusion for a few reasons:

• The public nature of the 2 locations where these events will be held.

• David Morris’ situation – Dave has a cold but was ordered to leave work today & get tested for the coronavirus – he is now in isolation until test results come back in 1-3 days.

• Dave will not be around to add another machine, fix machines, or give change, which may be problematic at a facility with just 6 machines

We will poll league members & reassess the situation closer to the date of the next tournament. These 3 league nights are NOT canceled, & will be rescheduled, to be announced later.
