Flipside Selfie League – Season 2
When: May 8 – July 3rd
Cost: $10 plus quarters for games
League Finals: July 10th at 6:30pm
Selfie League Season 2 begins Wednesday, May 8th!
This league is designed to be super easy-going and informal. Just like the competitive league, registration is just $10. All registration fees are paid out in cash prizes to 1st/2nd/3rd place at the end of the season, and you get free dinner on the final tournament night along with trophies and sweet swag! Here’s how it works:
Each Wednesday for the next nine weeks, we will announce two games to be played that week.
You have the whole week to play those games—scores will be accepted through the end of the following Tuesday. Come in anytime!
Play until you have the score you want, then submit a photo of your score. It’s that easy! We absolutely welcome all ages and all skill levels. This is our “fun” league, so have a blast on your own schedule.

This League is Open to ALL Abilities!
Don’t be shy! This league is open to all abilities and is the best way to improve your skills – not to mention make new friends as pinball leagues are very social events!
Turns out that as much as our hobby is growing, it’s still a small community which makes it pretty easy to get to know everyone quickly. And we’re worth getting to know, if I do say so myself. 😉
Colorado Pinball Club’s next meeting is Saturday, May 4th, at 12 noon. Joe will be hosting at his place. He lives just between Castle Rock and Parker. Joe’s collection of games is wide-ranging, from Bingos to DMD. He also has some great restoration techniques that he may show us if we are lucky.
IMPORTANT, we’re looking for a head-count AND asking you to bring a snack or side like a potluck. Joe will provide the drinks (some beers, too) unless you want something special. Contact Lem Scarbrough at Lem_Scar@yahoo.com for the address, or 303-907-0555. Lem is getting shirts printed up (the image is from the shirt design). When you email or call for the address Lem can give you the details. There are different colors and styles available. Please come out to the meeting, it will be a good one!!
