Good news and bad news…
Bad news: due to low attendance and falling too far behind the original schedule, I am cancelling the current league season as such.
Good news: The remaining events will become non-competitive social gatherings in hopes of finding enough players to hold a new league season starting in May or June with tournaments at other venues to follow and accompany that league season. I have not updated the images on the events yet but that is the status. With the transition the starting time won’t be as strictly enforced; I plan to be at Poison Girl before 7:30pm and until at least 9:00pm. Same location, same approximate times, just a non-competitive setting with nothing reported to the IFPA for the time being.
In the same vein of good news, I would like to emphasize that I am not giving up on the league. The new logo is almost done, I will be making some final revisions over the weekend based on feedback I have received.
I am still looking for new pinball venues and people willing to step up and be tournament directors/league officials. At some point I will also be looking for a graphic designer, possibly even two or three people to share the responsibility of doing the graphic design. I’m capable but I will need to place most of my energy into other things.
Looking forward to next Monday night. I hope to see you there!
