New Monthly Tournament – Colorado Springs!

Help spread the word! Every so often I meet a pinball fan from Colorado Springs and they feel like they’re all alone. I’ve always responded that it’s not true and now I have a post to prove it!

North Side Social – First Sundays Monthly Tournament
Starting Sunday March 1st @ 2pm
$5 to enter plus cost of games
Format: 3 strikes

The format will be 3-strikes for the first tournament and subject to change for future months based on player feedback. $5 to enter and your IFPA fee is sponsored so cheers to Russell and the crew at North Side!

There is a good chance that Colorado Springs could also see its first pinball league as their player base starts to grow so if that’s something of interest to you, make sure you attend this Sunday and let Russell know you want to play!

Congratulations to the winners!
First – Laura McCarthy

Third – Summer Puente
Fourth – Hannah Martinez (first time competing!)
Rookie move…I forgot to take a photo. Trust me, they were all smiling.

Tournament broadcast now archived on our You Tube channel.

The tournament was broadcasted on our Twitch Channel and I’ve also archived the video on You Tube. The You Tube video has handy links in the description that helps you navigate to the start of each game and find the player you’d like to watch. Click ‘See More’ in the video’s description to see those timestamped links.

If you enjoyed watching, be sure to tune into our live coverage of the Women’s World Championship, North American Championship and Pin-Masters events all going down at Game Exchange March 5-8, 2020. So make sure you follow our Twitch Channel to be notified when we go live!

The final standings have been submitted (though not approved as of yet) to the IFPA and all players will receive Women’s WPPRs for their participation which will contribute to their rank in the Colorado Women’s State Championship standings.

And if you’re out of the loop – Yes! Colorado Women’s State Championship is now a thing. I will make a separate post with all the details you need to know for how to qualify and how to ensure your women’s leagues and tournaments contribute to the state standings.

Want to qualify for the Wyoming state championship?

You only need to attend a couple events. If you win this one, then that will probably do it. Just sayin’.

Did you know that Colorado will be hosting the Women’s World Championship this year? There are even two ladies from Colorado competing!

Did you know that Colorado will be holding a Women’s State Championship next year? Want to know how all this works? Come to this tournament and get the skinny on all the exciting changes the IFPA’s Women’s Advisory Board has brought to the table.

Talent not required to participate! You just gotta be a lady who loves pinball. The point of this tournament is to get the women from all corners of Colorado together, to learn about the opportunities for women in competitive pinball and for us to test our streaming equipment, production and commentary chops before the March NACS/Women’s World Championship/Pin-Masters tournaments.
