Spring 2020 Canceled

March 16, 2020 by Maura

It is with tremendous regret that we announce WE MUST CANCEL THE REMAINDER OF THE SPRING 2020 SFPD SEASON.

As most of you know, the CDC has recommended limiting gatherings of greater than 50 people for the next eight weeks. For the safety of our community, we will comply with this recommendation. Below are answers to some frequently asked questions.

What about my dues? Our plan for now is to carry our full membership list with dues fully paid through the Fall 2020 season.

What if I don’t intend to participate in the Fall season? We will provide a full refund of your dues for the Spring season.

What about finals? We will watch how things develop for the next eight weeks. If it is plausible, we may add a finals tournament some time in the summer.

What about my WPPRs? If a finals tournament is not possible, we may submit results of the season so far as they are to the IFPA.

How can I support my favorite pinball owners and operators?

Free Gold Watch offers gift certificates. These are available in person only. Talk to Matt.

Outer Orbit has a link for gratuities for staff on their website.

Greg Creech is offering monthly pinball machine rentals for $300/mo including delivery and set-up. He also has a Patreon page set up.

Where can I keep in touch with the SFPD and the Bay Area Pinball community? We will be offering most updates via our Slack channel #sfpd and, less frequently, via this email. Of course, you can contact the SFPD Commissioners via sfpins@sfpins.org.

Who is the winner of the SFPD Spirit Award? It’s all of you! Thank you so much for your patience and support during this challenging and historical event.

Sincerely, Andreas, Derek, Maura and Russ The Commissioners
