And it all comes down to this! The standings are super close headed into our last night of Fall League! As of right now, we have 4 delegates for the finals which take place Nov. 2nd at Main Street Amusements in Lafayette, IN. If a few more of our players who have already done 2 weeks can play tonight we could get bumped up to have a 5th delegate for the finals where they will get to compete for the coveted HOPS Champion Trophy!
League play will be at 8:30 like usual. New machines Dolly Parton, The Flintstones, and Power Play have all been added into the website and can be chosen this week.
Also, remember Sunday we are doing our 4-Strikes tournament as a charity event raising money for Power of the Purse. Power of the Purse is a fundraising campaign that spans almost the entirety of October, which is National Domestic Violence Awareness month. YWCA’s Domestic Violence Intervention & Prevention Program provides life-saving services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in six Indiana counties (Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White). Services include emergency shelter, legal advocacy, case management, support groups, financial assistance and more. There will be a $5 entry fee for the tournament, and the machines will still be on coin drop as well. 100% of all the coin drop and entry fee will be getting donated that day so lets have a big turnout!
You know what day it is! Get down to North End Pub for FREE PINBALL ALL NIGHT LONG! This is a great time to get in some practice before our last night of league play tomorrow, and also to put up as many attempts as you want for the October Selfie Tournament. Those games are America’s Most Haunted, Dracula, and Godzilla! 8 days left this month to put up those scores.
As October starts to wind down let’s get our pinball calendars marked up for November! Every week in November we will have Too Sweet Tuesdays with a tournament in Market Square Lanes from 7-8:30 PM, open to all ages and skill levels, no entry fee, just quarters for the machines which should be $5-$8 for the night total. Then each Thursday at 8:30 PM we will have events going as well.
STARTS NOVEMBER 5th!
Two weeks from today we are kicking off Too Sweet Tuesdays! What is that you ask? Well, it is quite simple, its a Flipper Frenzy pinball tournament running from 7:00-8:30 PM on Tuesday nights at Market Square Lanes! Why not in the North End Pub where we always have our tournaments? Well, let me answer that question for you. We have expanded to having 10+ machines in Market Square Lanes now and most importantly by hosting it on that side of the business, we can make our Tuesday night events open to all ages! So any of you who have some kids you want to get out of the house and playing/ doing something where they have to interact with other humans this is a great opportunity! Also, it gives us a chance to show pinball to some people in a new environment as well. The games on that side of the building are Bobby Orr’s Power Play, World Cup Soccer, Monopoly, Indianapolis 500, Flintstones, Star Wars, Baywatch, Dale Jr. Nascar, Judge Dredd, and WWF Royal Rumble. There will be no entry fee required just the coin drop. The format will keep us moving and playing for the whole 90 minutes and you know exactly how much time you will be committing to the event unlike many of our other formats. I’d estimate it will cost $5-$8 in coin drop for the tournament as all games will be set to $.25 or $.50 cents, and we should be able to get everyone 10-15 games in a night. The winner will be the person with the best win/loss difference and we will have prizes for 1st and last place! After the tournament feel free to stick around and get in some practice or to head to the bar to try out our amazing lineup in there as well.
Hey everyone! I know we are all about having a good time when it comes to playing pinball at North End Pub. We also like to be about helping a good cause. This Sunday we are going to be raising the tournament entry fee to $5 instead of our typical $1 dollar because we will be raising money for Power of the Purse. Power of the Purse is a fundraising campaign that spans almost the entirety of October, which is National Domestic Violence Awareness month. YWCA’s Domestic Violence Intervention & Prevention Program provides life-saving services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in six Indiana counties (Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White). Services include emergency shelter, legal advocacy, case management, support groups, financial assistance and more. In addition to 100% of the entry fee for the tournament being donated, we will also be donating all of the coin-drop from the tournament on Sunday to the cause as well so please feel free to show up early and stay late as all your pinball fun will be helping a great cause this weekend. I hope to see a ton of you there on Sunday!
Oh, and we have completed our pinball expansion and North End Pub and Market Square Lanes now boasting a lineup of over 20 machines with the most recent additions being Dolly Parton, Bobby Orr’s Power Play, and The Flintstones!
Here are the current October Selfie Standings! Remember you have all month long to get some scores entered on America’s Most Haunted, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and GODZILLA! Finals will be the first Monday evening of November.
Don’t forget we have League Night tonight at 8:30 North End Pub! The standings are super close and we only have 3 weeks left! Remember finals this season are in town hosted by our friends over at Main Street Amusements. Right now it is looking like we should get 3 or 4 players to qualify for finals so make sure you are showing up and encouraging your friends to come and play to help us secure those spots for our location in the finals.
See everyone tonight and don’t forget to check out Jurassic Park with the new and updated code on it!
If you missed out last Thursday tonight is your chance for redemption! Get down to North End Pub around 8 PM to get your league games in from last week! Also Godzilla has finished being shopped out with all new LEDs, rubbers, and flippers rebuilt it is playing awesome as is Dracula. Those are two of the three selfie games this month so make sure you check them out. The last selfie game is America’s Most Haunted as we felt it was most appropriate for October!
See all you slackers tonight!
