CANCELLED – Wednesday Night League at Speedy’s starting August 18

UPDATE: League has been cancelled. The original announcement prior to cancellation is left intact below for historical interest only.

In case you missed the big announcement, IFPA endorsements are back! Come be a part of Bayou City Pinball League’s first IFPA-endorsed and WPPR-ranked weekly league starting August 18, at Speedy’s Fast Track, 11440 Hempstead Road, Houston, Texas (see map below). Meetings will be Wednesday nights: August 18, 25, then September 1, 8, at 7:00 pm, with playoffs on September 15 with start time TBD (likely 7:00 pm as well but may be moved up to 6:30 pm). Space will be limited to twenty-four (24) players. (Once 24 unique players have registered and played at least one week, priority will be given to returning players over new players.)

Format for each weekly meet will be four games of group match play with 7-5-3-1/7-4-1 scoring per weekly meet. The lowest score of the four weeks will be dropped. Format for the playoffs will also be match play with A division and B division sizes as set forth in the rulebook. Players who play in at least two of the four weeks will be eligible for playoffs.

For this season, the IFPA endorsement fees of $1 per player will be sponsored by Q Factor Entertainment and no dues will be collected, with the only cost to play being the “coin drop” (price per game).

Upcoming events for August

For those that missed the announcement, IFPA will resume endorsing events in August.

There are events in the planning process. Expect a weekly league (5-week mini-season) on Wednesday or Thursday night starting in late August or possibly early September, and possibly a couple of tournaments (which may become regular events) in September. Stay tuned…
