Hey Everyone! A good friend of the Lafayette Pinball League, Mark, has purchased a brand new Aerosmith pinball machine from Stern Pinball. He is having two launch tournaments this coming weekend. Friday’s launch party is from 5PM-11PM central time zone at his arcade, Chicago Street Pinball Arcade, in Joliet, IL.
Information and details for Joliet event can be found on the Facebook event page.
Information and details for the Champaign event can be found on the Facebook event page.
I got to stop by and check the game out yesterday and was really impressed with how the game played so I strongly encourage anyone looking for something fun to do Friday night to go and check it out. Mark also has around 30 other pinball machines at the arcade as well including Wizard of Oz, Rob Zombie Spookshow International, X-men LE, White Water, and many others that we don’t have access to around Lafayette and its all you can play for $15 with a few of the games there on loan costing $1 to play, or 3 games for $2.
Details for Sunday’s event which will take place in Champaign, IL will be posted to Chicago Street Pinball Arcade’s Facebook page so go and check it out and give them a “like” so you can get the latest news from their events.
Hey Guys, a friend of mine Erik Wurtenberger from Kentucky is hosting a tournament on June 10th at his house. It is limited to the first 40 players that register. Erik is a great guy and has played in a few of our tournaments as well so many of you have probably already met him. It should be an awesome event and I encourage anyone interested in competitive pinball to give it a shot. You can sign up at the link below, and be sure to include your email so that you will be sent more details as the date of the event gets closer.
Nice solid turnout for Week 1 of the 2017 Spring Season! Thanks especially to our new members Andy, Joe, and Terry. It was really nice to have some new blood out there and I hope you all had a good time during your first week. Below are the full results for the first week as Matt takes home MVP on the night with 17 points, closely followed by Tom with 15, and then Andy and Keith tying for 3rd with 14.5.
Next week’s games are Batman ’66, Black Knight, Captain Fantastic, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Fire!
Tip to new players check out PAPA’s (Professional Amateur Pinball Association) Youtube channel for a ton of video tutorials and tips on how to play certain games. You will be amazed and how quickly they can help you improve and a lot of them are just entertaining.
See you all next Tuesday at 7:30 for week 2! Don’t forget that on March 21st we will be having our Monthly Tournament sponsored by Sun King Brewery out of Indianapolis who has donated an awesome prize package!
