Fresh off the heels of Expo and the recent thread stating that GW had a large number of pins removed, it's been announced there will now be a regular monthly tournament. On the first Tuesday of each month GW and IFPA are doing a tournament! I'm excited to see Chicago having regular open play now and maybe this means pinball is not being phased out at GW! Who's up for going and making a presence for Pinside? I'll be there.
Here's the post from RGP:
"The IFPA, Gameworks and the Chicago Pinball League are pleased to
announce the start of a new monthly tournament at the Schaumburg
Gameworks location. The tournament will take place on the first
Tuesday of each month at 7pm, starting on December 6th.
Entry fee is $5 plus the cost of games. Tournament format is a best of
3, single elimination head-to-head bracket. Games and seeding will be
chosen at random.
All cash from entry fees will be paid out to the top 4 finishers each
month, with additional prizes like Gameworks game cards and Stern
goodies available as well. World Pinball Player Rankings points will
also be awarded for all participants.
Pre-registration is encouraged so we can prepare for how many players
to expect. Please contact the IFPA at 'ifpapinball at gmail dot com'
for any questions, and to sign up for December’s tournament if you’re
