    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.

    Ask Hanley how well attend his non-sanctioned tournaments are.

    In the GTA no IFPA means lower attendance for sure.

    Quoted from Law:

    The OP mentioned that someone (probably Adam) asked him to post a picture of the winner to the fb group where they listed the event when the results were submitted. Probably a good idea but not a requirement afaik. On second look, it might've just been the winner announced and not necessarily a picture.

    I didn't do that

    His results are waiting for him to pay the $1 fee, I was looking for information about his league on the website he provided so I could verify the TGP, I couldn't find anything. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and moved the results through our system awaiting his payment. Then I sent him an email letting him know that if he wants to submit his league again I'm going to require more information on the actual league, this being his provided URL:


    I found lots of information on Corn-hole tournaments and chill cook-offs but nothing about his league.

    Quoted from jwilson:

    I dunno, High Park Team League gets 20+ people with no points. I'd be happy with 20.

    Team leagues are different, they are filling a different niche. Sanctioned events can't have teams.

    That being said in the right area and correct promotion you could for sure build yourself a player base without Sanction. But Sanction in the GTA means you are tapping into a player base looking for more opportunities to qualify for the PCS without having to do any of the work of actually promoting your event and finding people who just want to play pinball.
