    New for 2018! The ArkLaTex Pinball club announces the ArLaTex Pinball League. I’m commiting to organize some competitive Pinball for the region and You participation is wanted.
    Our Mississippi friends are most welcome. The more the merrier.

    No collection is two small. For our very small group, anyone with a game that is willing to host would be helpful. Public locations in the Shreveport Bossier area are slim, but present. Thanks to our local operator, we have some places to play that offer food and drink. Several of our members have nice collections and may be willing to host larger events.

    For now, there will be two IFPA tournaments in Shreveport this year. Feb and September, both in Shreveport.
    In addition, I’m hoping to run a league with 4 seasons for 2018. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Format and location are TBA at this point. Please input your suggestions and ideas here.

    While we are collecting ideas, please submit any public locations you think would be good. Even better, add a photo of the games if you have been there and played them.

    I’ve met a lot of great people in the last six years through Pinball. I’m looking forward to meeting many more.

    Thanks to all of you making Pinball fun!

    Following the format that HAAG used for scoring the league events would seem best.

    Give everyone a fixed number of attempts on the league machines for that week with their top score counting and ranking them on each machine (with first place getting 100 points on the machine, second place 99 points on the machine, etc) and use the same application HAAG used to tally scores and give league standings week to week.

    I’m in! I have a small collection, but I’d be happy to get together.

    Sorry. Just sharing my work misery this weekend.

    I plan to call Cointaker tomorrow and check the status of the parts

    https://matchplay.events/ is excellent, affordable tournament software.

    The best-game format TigerLaw is talking about is available with the premium features ($30/year) and I believe there's a 90 day free trial.

    Marcus has also recommended this one. I believe I’ll give it a go for 2018 and pay the fee to have all the features. Mobile phone submission is really helpful.

    Hi Nevus,

    If you haven't already done so, you may want to go ahead and get your N LA pinball league registered with IFPA pretty soon, so you can get started on your 2018 league action in late Jan or early Feb. Per IFPA they want registr done 30 days in adv of start of league play if you want to earn IFPA points.
    More info here:

    I see that a Lake Charles pinball league already appears on IFPA Leagues map & list.
