Manitoba Pinball Open League S04S02

Wednesday March 23rd at 7pm at Phantom Amusement at The Forks. It’s $2 to enter plus $6 roughly for coin drop. We will play 6 different pinball machines and score points for each game played. If you finish 1st you get 5 points, 2nd 3 points, 3rd 2 points and 4th 1 point. At the end of the 8 games we add up your points and put that onto the league standings. We play once a month (with the exception of one month to make up for missing January) until October. After 10 league nights we add up all the points (you can either miss two league nights or drop your two worst scores if you attend all of them) and the top 16 players qualify for the playoffs in November for plaques and medals to the top finishers.

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.
