I had a fantastic time! Was great to see everyone out and there were some true battles on the pins! We busted 4 pins! Get to work Geoff! Ha! There was some great conversation to be had and it was just a great night all around. I am already looking forward to next month. Congrats to Craig for beating Geoff in the finals and taking first place! Congrats to Diane for giving me 2 strikes tonight! Awesome venue, great employees and wicked tourney director! Thank you all!

Are these on a regular schedule? Going to be travelling through Ontario the first week of May, and wonder if the planets could align and I'd be in the city for one of these.

Are you planning to keep these tournaments free to join even in the face of IFPA instituting a $1 charge per player?

we have 8 months to think about it, and i still haven't read the hundreds of posts on Pinside and Tilt Forums about it yet, but my initial reaction was that WPPRS are of very little benefit for the majority of the crowd that attends these tournaments - there is only 1 person in the entire city of Ottawa right now that would even qualify for the Ontario Provincials (Phil B) and that's where most of the $1 per player (per tourney submission!) goes to.

one option is changing it into a monthly league format with a finals/playoffs, that way there aren't monthly IFPA tournament submissions incurring $20-$40 charges every time.

we'll see how things shake out!

I spent most of the day cleaning and tweaking my games and everything is 100% (except thing on both Addams Family games).

I spent an hour and a half working on thing on the first Addams and I stopped because the rest of the games are more important than a hand that goes back and forth for nothing. On game 1, the magnet does not pick up the ball, works in test but not in game mode. On game 2, I got the motor working and the magnet does not drop the ball. So thing is disabled on both games, you still get the points. Maybe if the playfield didn't come crashing down on my head when I was trying to fix thing a few months ago I might have fixed it.

I installed a second Addams Family and I was going to bring the Getaway but my lift gate broke.

Yeah, your TAF sucks. You should put it in my car and be free of it. 8-)

Going to be in Ottawa tonight, how early must we arrive to get registered, and how late does it usually run?

hey Evan - we start at 8pm SHARP so show up anytime before then to register.

things typically wrap up by 10:30pm at the latest and that is really just the top 4-8 players that go the distance in the tournament. most of the field is done by 9:30pm i'd say.
