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! As always thank you to Dan St. John for allowing us to use his amazing location to host our league events. A big congratulations goes out to our new Champion Matt Peace as well as to the repeat Runner-Up Tom Vandenberg! 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!
I posted these to the Facebook event page and Pinside yesterday but here you go! I made one slight change as I had forgot to include Space Shuttle, that has replaced Spanish Eyes being duplicated in two separate banks which I am sure is a relief to many of you!
Hope to see many of you at league tonight and at the tournament this weekend!
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!
Hey everyone, had another good turnout last night and some highly competitive games, hope everyone had a good time. Here are the standings after two weeks! Matt sits at the top of the heap, followed closely by Tom, Tommy and Craig.
Games for week 3 (8/23/2016) are Game of Thrones Premium, Medieval Madness, Monopoly, Power Play, and Spanish Eyes.
Tutorials will be added in the coming days for each of the games.
Remember that next week is the monthly tournament. As always it will start at 8:00PM, cost is $5 to enter, and the format is 3-strikes elimination. You will be pitted against a random opponent on a random game, everyone continues playing until there is only one person left without 3 strikes. Hope everyone can make it!
Hey guys! Just wanted to send a big thanks out to everyone who showed up for week 1! It was awesome to see everyone again and hopefully we can keep our numbers growing so feel free to bring a friend tomorrow for week 2. Jeff thanks for making the drive and checking out league, glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you coming back more and more.
Below are the standings after week 1. Matt Peace was 1/2 point shy of completing a perfect week which has not happened since we began keeping our stats via PinPortal! Also Joe had to leave due to an emergency, he had not completed Family Guy or Spider-Man when he left, he went back and played those games on Thursday and I will get those scores entered asap, it should only have a mild impact on overall standings.
The games for week 2 are as follows Eight Ball Deluxe, Avatar LE, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Demolition Man, and Harlem Globetrotters!
Here are tutorials for the games in case anyone needs some pointers before tomorrow night!
Lastly here are the updated standings for Super-Selfie League for August! Matt is sitting at the top right now with some dominant scores, who can knock him off?!
We had quite the shakeup in the standings following some great week 5 performances. Keith, the reigning league champion, moved into first place. Nipping on his heels is a three way tie for 2nd between Craig, Tom, and Dan St. John. Matt, Tommy, and Terry all drop from group 1 down to group 2. Dan Isaacson had the biggest week posting up a huge 18 points. Matt came away with the win in group 1 with 15, and Craig in group 2 with 17. We have three weeks remaining in the Spring Season.
Games for week 6 are Captain Fantastic, Harlem Globetrotters, Spider-Man VE, Star Wars Ep. 1, and The Getaway: High Speed II.
Lastly next Tuesday is the cutoff for May Super-Selfie League scores, and the finals will be played the very next night on Wednesday, June 1st. There have been some massive scores posted this month and thank you guys a ton for the increased participation.
We had a low turnout last night due to some illness and some vacations, but we still had a good time. Seven players participated in the three strikes tournament Dan S., Dan I., Craig, Chris, Matt, Ron, and Tommy. Ron finished the night with an early exit coming in 7th place. Dan. I and Chris pulled out a tie for 5th place. Dan S. and Craig finished in a tie for 3rd place. Tommy edged Matt out in the finals on Amigo for his second monthly tournament victory of the year. Be sure to get down to MSA and check out Amigo before it leaves the store as Dan informed us that it has been sold. Also Olympic Hockey is playing awesome and out on the floor, it was included in last night’s tournament and had some heated battles. Before playing the game decide if you want to play for score or goals as a unique way to mix up the competition. Reminder that games for week 5 of Lafayette Pinball League are listed below and we will see you all there next Tuesday!
