    I used to shoot a bit of 10m air-pistol a while back and similar to pinball, there weren't too many people near me shooting. They have a system where you'd shoot your 60 shots, score them and send your result to the guy that compiles it all. There's a history that you can check if you're getting any better and all that. I was wondering if there would be some application for this in pinball? My train of thought is sure there is a list of high scores but if you play one game a thousand times you will get a good score somewhere amongst all those games. What if we say, pick a pin, a date and time submit your best results of say five games. We could have a virtual competition with many players.
    I've never played in any competition before so you guys must send some more suggestions... Is it worth a try or is it a crap idea?

    I was in a similar competition last week, everyone had a week to play 5 games in different locations, picture text the scores to the organizer, and the highest scores win.

    I won that one, so there apparently wasn't too stiff competition.

    Cool, didn't think anybody had ever tried something like this. If there's some interest we should give it a go. Any ideas on game formats?

    There is occasionally an RGP online league. Don't know the details, though.

    I think KLOV has a online league as well. Post two scores a week type thing.
