    Announcing the next event for Pinball for Change. Many thanks to Rob, aka Spiro Agnew for offering his collection and home to host this event. Address will be given to confirmed participants closer to the date.

    Tuesday December 29th - Doors at 7:30, Matches start at 8 pm. Format will be the same as the last event, a 4 strike elimination tournament. Tiebreak matches will again take place if players are eliminated in the same round. Brackelope will be used to generate matches and track the tournament.

    Due to size of the location, the number of participants is again being limited to 16. A waitlist will again be kept should the tournament be fully subscribed.

    Cost is $25, in which $15 will be donated to my family's ongoing effort to raise $5000 to provide Primary Education for 100 Children in Ecuador through Free the Children, and the other $10 will be put towards a prize pool for the top 4 players.

    If you are interested in registering, please pm me along with a direct email address I can contact you with.

    I can't make it but will be happy to supply another raffle prize. I as going to offer some prizes for a big draw in celebration of PBRev's 3rd anniversary, but this cause is more important. :)

    And we've been IFPA approved, so WPPR points are available as well.

    For anyone trying to make the Ontario PCS this year, this looks like it will be the last opportunity for 2015 so keep that in mind as well if you are close to the bubble:

    Happy to be hosting this. The lineup is likely to change between now and the date, but I've got a good mix of 90s Williams DMD, System 11 and 70s EMs. Likely something to please everyone. Unless you like modern Sterns...I have none of those.

    Welcome aboard Brian. I think that leaves us with 1 spot remaining. If you want it, snag it soon boys!

    PFC 2 went off without a hitch last night.

    I want to thank Rob (spiroagnew) and Marta for opening their lovely home and collection to us to play. An excellent variety of games kept everyone on their toes.

    With the Grey Goose Rollergames challenge (thanks for the donation Rob) we raised exactly $400 towards the cause.

    IFPA results are pending submission as the website won't allow me to post currently. Working on that with them.

    Thanks again - more to come but we're over $1500 raised as a pinball community and for that I thank you all!

    Great to see all the games get a proper workout. No breakers popped. No catastrophic fails.

    A couple stuck balls, a temperamental ball count unit on an EM and a handful of broken rubbers (they don't make'em as good as they used to folks) were the only snags during a smooth running evening.

    It was a pleasure to help out a good cause, and I look forward to hosting again!
