Another night, another record. 83 pinball playing folks showed up for league this time around!
We gave Tony’s Slice House a shot, and except for GrubHubs botching of instructions to bring plates and napkins, it was a hit according to many members.
Next round will be on March 8th. See you!
Round 3 saw 77 players come through the door to FGW. Unfortunately I missed the round due to a pizza eating tour, but I’m sure plenty of fun was had!
See you for round 4 on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd!
A new attendance record for the SFPD was set with 81 people coming to have fun at FGW! Thank you to all participants for making this such a fun event.
Long time members Eric and Louise were nice enough to come by with the newest member of the pinball family: Daniel!
The new playoff format is now decided upon, and it’s visible under the Rules tab.
Next round is on February 8th!
78 players came out for the season 9 opener! It was great fun to see so many new faces (we have 11 rookies this season) and to have a fun time playing pinball again. The big news for the season is that we now don’t use a random draw anymore. Instead, the setting on the MatchPlay software is “balanced”, which means that it tries to pair you with people that you have not previously played before during the season. In theory, you could play 30 different players (10 rounds x 3 players) during the season! Thanks to Andreas for implementing this in MP. I think it’ll make the league better.
I’m still working on the playoff format, but it’s coming together. For a sneak preview, go to the rules tab and scroll down.
If you are curious as to when pizza will be served, go to the schedule tab!
See you on Jan 25th!
See you on Wednesday for the season opener!
League season number 9 starts on January 11th! See the schedule tab for details.
After playing nearly flawless pinball, Brian O’Neill claimed the title of champion of the Winter Series. Well played Brian!
