The objectives are posted on the back boxes of each hole but I’m also making the 9-hole course objectives available online.
The top 8 players advance to Finals. Good luck and play well!
IFPA 16 will be streaming on Twitch Friday through Sunday starting at (my best guess) 2am Mountain. Yep, it’s in Milan this year so it’s an early broadcast start for us. All streams will also be archived on You Tube. Be sure to cheer on Escher!

Boulder’s mixing things up for the next league. It will be 5 regular season weeks, plus a finals. Each week of the regular season will be a completely different format. (All weeks are on Wednesday nights, always at 7:30pm, starting on June 12th and it’s $20 to join).
Ryan will be too busy scorekeeping to play. Who will sit on the throne?
June 12th: Pingolf. Play in twosomes across 9 holes. All games set to 5 balls with an objective. See how many balls (strokes) it takes to reach the objective. Lowest total stroke total for the evening wins.
June 19th: Group Knockout. Four player groups. Each player gets 5 strikes. 0 strikes for 1st place, 1 strike for 2nd or 3rd, and 2 strikes for 4th. Continue playing rounds until only one player remains.
June 26th: Flip Frenzy. 90 minutes of rapid-fire two player games with only a few minute break between each match. Final standings are total wins minus losses. Win your matches, but be quick about it!
July 3rd: Monthly Tournament, no league
July 10th: Round Robin w/ finals. Split into two groups and play each other player in your group. Top two from each group advance to a single elim bracket.
July 17th: Herb high score. Unlimited attempts across the bank of games for 120 minutes. 100-90-85-84 scoring for each game, your best four scores count.
Each week, your finishing position will award you points as follows:
1st 100 & $15
2nd 80 & $10
3rd 60 & $5
After the 5 regular season weeks are up, the next week will be a finals, and you’ll be ranked by *total points scored* across the five weeks. The top 8 will be in the A Division Finals, and the rest will be in the B Division finals.
WPPRs will be awarded based on *finals* finishing position.
The B Division Finals format will be the same, although may be subject to change depending on the total number of players.
The A Division Finals will be a ladder. Seeds 5-8 will play a four player match. The loser is eliminated in 8th. Then the 4 seed will join the remaining players. The loser is eliminated in 7th. Etc, until only one player remains.
League dues are $20 per player. Money will be paid out to the top 3 places each week: $15 for 1st, $10 for 2nd, $5 for 3rd. The finals prize pool will be made up of the remaining funds.
Blizzard League meets every Monday at 7pm starting tonight through August 5th. It’s $40 and you must be able to make 7 of the 10 weeks to be eligible to participate in League Finals on Monday August 12th. That means if you can’t make it tonight – short notice, I know – there will still be 9 weeks remaining so you can still play!
For those familiar with our Twitch stream but have not yet played in the Blizzard Pinball League, you’ll have the pleasure of playing alongside such greats as detimemachine, pezjohnson and lordhowardhurtz. What could possibly be a finer time??
To join the league just show up on league night, ideally by 6:30 so that Kevin McCarthy (league director) has ample time to put you on the roster. You can find more details and contact info for Blizzard here.
Just a friendly reminder that Blizzard will be hosting a PinGolf tournament this Sunday, June 9th at 1:00pm SHARP!
Be sure to RSVP is you haven’t done so already by emailing Snow here. If all 36 spots are not claimed ahead of time, we will allow players to sign-up at the door, up until we hit the 36 player cap.
Cash for the top 8 finishers. Super sweet trophies for the top 4!
