Week 4 is in the books! Matt, Keith, and Terry all had dominating nights within their groups each coming away with solid victories. Below are the full results from last night.
And with those results in all of the Selfie League standings have been updated as well. Remember tonight is the last day of the month so any scores you want submitted need to be sent in by this evening, get down to MSA and make a strong last effort to move up in those rankings. Finals will be next Wednesday at 7:30 PM.
Games for Week 5, unofficial space theme week, are Space Shuttle, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Big Lebowski, and Theatre of Magic! How many leagues across the country can say they are playing a Lebowski as part of their league?!?! Thanks again Dan!
And lastly, if you are heading down to MSA at any point this week after today you may as well start snapping some of those selfies for the December games! The Big Lebowski, Ghostbusters Premium, Eight Ball Deluxe, Family Guy, and Spanish Eyes.
We are officially just 1 week from the start of the newest season of Lafayette Pinball League! We meet Tuesday, November 1st at 7:30 PM at Main Street Amusements!

We will continue with our requirement of playing in a minimum of 3 weeks to be eligible for the finals event. You will be seeded based on your best 8 weeks out of the 10, meaning your 2 lowest weeks are dropped. Other than the just about everything else is remaining the same as always.

As always I encourage people to spread the word, bring a friend, neighbor, kid, stranger, family member, sworn enemy, or whoever to get a few more folks playing some competitive pinball with us. I think we have a good & fun league, and the best location in the country for pinball.
And with that here are your games for week 1!
Games are Avatar LE, Big Indian, Captain Fantastic, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Eight Ball Deluxe!
Thank you and congrats to everyone who made it out to participate in the Fall 2016 Lafayette Pinball League Finals last night at Main Street Amusements!

Darcy Thomas made a very strong showing with a 3rd place finish and Dan St. John rounded out our final four coming in 4th.
Here are the full results:
I also tried to take some pictures of everyone playing in the early rounds, I apologize if I missed anyone, but I feel like league is important to all of us for a variety of reasons and it was nice to try to capture the fun moments. Plus you know this means there is a Winter Season hype video coming…
Reminder that next week will be the Monthly 3-strikes tournament. I will be gone on vacation, but the tournament will still be run through Brackelope as usual. Still starts at 8PM and is 3 strikes format with a $5 entry fee.
Our winter league starts back up November 1st at 7:30 PM. View the calendar here.
Lastly I’ve contacted Double Danger Pinball who did our logo and shirts for Main Street Mayhem, as well as the newest batch of Main Street Amusement shirts about designing a league logo for us that we could use on a shirt and custom awards in the future. I’m including a brief poll, a simple yes or no response.
Hey guys, nice attendance last night and some very close games across the board. Here are the results from last evening and the current league standings with two weeks of regular season play left! The two amigos had huge nights with Dan I. posting up 18.5 points and Craig just behind with 17 points both winning their respective groups. Ron and Tommy were the other group winners on the night all with close totals. Matt and Keith remain at the top of the heap, but with two weeks left it’s still anyone’s season to win!
Next week is the 3rd Tuesday of the month so that means it’s time for the monthly 3 strikes tournament! Remember this tournament starts at 8:00 PM sharp, and cost $5 to play in! Last player without 3 strikes (loses) is the champion, and all entry fee money is paid back to the top 4 finishers!
Lastly, Saturday and Sunday is Main Street Mayhem! It is a two day matchplay tournament. Over the two days you will play 10 rounds of competitive pinball, 3 games per round! That means 30 games of pinball over 2 days! Playing in the tournament gets you a sweet shirt, custom sticker, and a chance to win cash prizes and awesome custom plaques all designed for us by Double Danger Pinball! Signing up for the tournament only takes a few minutes and the format is guaranteed to be fun for all who attend! REGISTER HERE! Below are the tournament banks that will be used and a picture of the official tournament logo that will be featured on the shirts, stickers, and awards!
Okay, last night we had a lower attendance rate than usual but that was expected for the post holiday date, next week I’m sure we will see a few more faces back at MSA!
For week 5 Tom Vandenburg and Brian Bauer come away as the MVPs both posting 17.5 points and winning their respective groups! They were closely trailed by Keith Alyea and Darcy Thomas who were nipping at their heels with 17 points each. Tom was the winner in Group 1, Darcy in Group 2, and Brian in Group 3!
As far as overall standings go Matt and Keith are at the top with Matt edging Keith out by just a 1/2 point right now! Here are the full week 5 results and overall standings for Fall Season!
Games for week 6 are Avatar LE, Eight Ball Deluxe, Star Wars Episode 1, Transformers LE, and Spanish Eyes! Since Eight Ball Deluxe and Transformers LE are featured in the Selfie League for September we will go ahead and play extra balls on those two games!
See everyone next week! Also remember next Saturday and Sunday, September 17th-18th is Main Street Mayhem! If you haven’t signed up to play I strongly encourage you to as it will be a very fun two days of pinball. If you really don’t want to play, but still want to check it out I am sure we could use some volunteers to help during the tournament to help report stuck balls, game malfunctions, and other useful contributions. Let me know if you are interested in volunteering, or if you need help getting registered for the tournament!
