    We are excited to announce the Belles of Space City! A chapter of Belles and Chimes in Houston, TX.

    Our first event will be March 10th @ 3pm at The Game Preserve in the Woodlands, TX. We will meet the 2nd Saturday of the month, I have attached a "save the dates" flyer for our tournaments through the summer.

    Women of all skill levels and ages are invited to come and play. The tournament is free, however, if you are not a member of The Game Preserve there is a $15 dollar entry fee (all games are on free play).

    We have some great prizes to give away, and everyone that participates (not just the tournament winners) will have the opportunity to win something.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Perhaps we can plan a weekend over in Houston soon so she can join y’all in the event. Do y’all have a May event planned?

    tigerlaw yes come spend a weekend in Houston! Our May event is scheduled for Saturday, May 12th, and I believe there will be a co-ed event Sunday May 13th at Einstein's in Katy (it's always the 2nd Sunday, but not sure since that Sunday is Mother's Day, I'll get back to you). Feel free to PM me if you need any more information. We would love to have y'all come visit.

    Quoted from Frax:

    You can now feasibly have players pushing out the 'elites' just by volume of play instead of quality of wins in the women's world

    It's just like the open ranking, only the top 20 events are used. In comparing points value, one of our players got 3rd in our women's event and got 2.67 points, when she got 3rd in our co-ed event 3 days later she got 5.22 points. Don't know if that answers your question... but it's some information for you.

    Quoted from PavBall:

    My husband and I are hosting some IFPA events on June 23rd.

    I know I won't be able to make the June event , but I will let our ladies know about it. Maybe if y'all have something scheduled for July we can try to plan a trip.

    Please let me know when you plan on coming, I will have a t-shirt, dollar game kit, and beer waiting for you!
