TBPL June Meetup at Vector Bar & Arcade [IFPA Tournament]
« on: May 25, 2018, 12:20:54 PM »
After a long nap TBPL is well rested and ready for some pinball. We are starting back up our monthly tournaments every third sunday, and will be rotating the hosting location between Replay Amusement Museum, Vector Bar & Arcade, and Lowry Parcade. The first of these events will be June 17th at Vector Bar & Arcade. These tournaments will be IFPA sponsored events.

---

Come join the Tampa Bay Pinball League for our monthly tournament, which is held every third Sunday between three locations. We will be welcoming Vector Bar & Arcade to the local circuit, which currently has ten pinball games, a choice selection of arcade games, and a nice offering of craft beers, coffees, and teas.

Doors open at 11am, and we will start promptly at 2pm. Total cost of the tournament will be $10, with $9 going towards the pot, and $1 going to the IFPA. The games at Vector will be on Free Play for the entire month of June.

We will be using the group knockout format with 3 strikes. Bottom 2 players in each group will receive a strike (4 Player group = 3rd/4th get strikes. 3 Player group = 2nd/3rd get strikes)

Tournament will begin PROMPTLY at 2PM.

This will be for IFPA points.

I have faith that you and several other of the west coasters will fill it quickly  :)

I travel to the west coast often for work-I am looking forward to stopping by :)
