from Doug on the other forum:
Returning events for the 2016-17 Circuit are:
PAPA World Championships
Catcus Jack's Silverball Showdown
Pittsburgh Pinball Open
Southern Fried (Pinvasion)
The scheduling decisions are now based on player feedback from the surveys we sent out. The above events were either exempt (because its a PAPA event) or were the ones we received the best feedback from the players in the surveys we sent out after each event. The 3 events rated just below those have a chance to stay on the Circuit through the poll we are currently running.
The bottom 4 events from the survey's from last Circuit season were removed from the Circuit. This includes Free Play Florida. These events can re-nominate their tournaments for the next Circuit season.
The top 8 events from the voting, will be added to the Circuit schedule.
