    Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

    The River City Monthly Tournament

    Every time I see this, all I can think of is...

    Hey Everyone! I wanted to share a Google Calendar that I've put together that lists regional tournaments and leagues. It's in Google Calendar as a public calendar. If there is anything you think is missing, please drop a note to

    WFMZ came out last night to do a story on the monthly tournament. Enjoy.

    Wow, they made it an entire 1m 20s before using the term "pinball wizard". That's about a minute longer than normally happens during a pinball related news story.

    Great story though. Hopefully it helps grow your league. We got a bunch of new players after our news story ran shortly after I started our league. It definitely helped. Too bad they didn't throw up an email address for you guys / gals or something.

    Kicking up an old thread.

    I just wanted to send an update that we're in the middle of the Winter 2018 Season of the PHILA Pinball regional league and to spread the word that qualifying is still open.

    We have 33 machines at 11 different locations, and you can play and post scores any time these locations are open. It's Best Game qualifying, and your best 8 games count. Top 32 will qualify for A Division Finals, and everyone else is welcome to play in the B Division Side Tournament.

    Here's a (slightly over the top) promotional video for the PHILA Pinball League Winter 2018 Season.

    Entry fee is only $10, and you can visit our website at: -> Main Pinside Thread -> Main Site -> Facebook Group

    The River City Pinball league will kick off our Summer Season Thursday, June 28th, 2018 at 7:00pm with a dedicated night for league orientation. If you're new to pinball, or just want to see what we're all about, we'd love for you to join us for a no commitment night of pinball.

    The league officially starts Thursday July 5th, 2018 at 7:00pm. The league runs for a total of 9 weeks, 8 weeks of regular play followed by a finals week. We follow the FSPA rule set and use the PAPA online scoring system.

    Registration fee is $25 for returning players and $20 for new players. Bring a friend and we'll take $5 off your registration fee for each friend you refer.

    We play all of our games at the River City Blues Club, located at 819 South Cameron Street, Harrisburg PA 17104. 100% of the registration fees are returned in the form of trophies and cash prizes.

    You can visit our Facebook page at or find us on the web at

    The lineup *should* be Iron Maiden, AC/DC, AFMr, Star Wars, TZ, Rolling Stones and Kiss.
