    Quoted from jwilson:

    I've been toying with the idea of starting a league and figured offering IFPA points would be a draw, but from this thread it sounds like more of a drag than anything - all the bookkeeping, money collecting and forwarding, etc. to what benefit?
    I'm personally not interested in the points, I'd only do it if it put more fingers at flippers.

    If you are starting a new league, it may help to attract players, so don't rule it out. It depends on your location and how active tournaments are, so ask around your local pinball friends to figure that part out.

    I run the Atlanta Head-2-Head league, and the IFPA 'bookkeeping' is far from a drag. It took me all of 10 minutes to load my 2018 events. We use Matchplay to run the tournaments and I just upload the output file to submit results.

    It takes way more time and effort to manage membership, scheduling locations, and actually running the events themselves. The IFPA filing is less than 5% of the total effort.

    In Atlanta, points are definitely a draw, and has helped grow the competition scene here. AH2H has almost doubled in size in the last 12 months, and we have long waiting and substitution lists too.
