Correction... For the last 2 years, i have used 60$ for prizes, and give a minimum of 170$ (70% of the earnings with 24 people) minimum. If less than 24, I paid out of pocket. I have since the beginning.

Regardless. I am done with this debate.

selon moi ce meet devrait pas compter MPL
si on regarde une dizaine reguliers de MPL sur 32 invités cela fausse un peu le "tournoi annuel"
j ai rien contre les gens qui viennent pas tres souvent mais ceux qui prennent cela au serieux se retrouve penalises ( je n en fais pas partie ).
Robert j ai rien contre ton concept et je trouve cela different et pas mauvais dans un sens
mais moi la bouffe et les filles ou quoi que ce soit c est pas l important!
revenons a la base jouer pinball! on couvre juste les frais de la personne qui recoit et les prix (10$) that s it!
anyways je serai pas pour une raison totalement etrangere a ce que je viens de dire...
je pense que ce type de soirees ont une raison d etre mais ne devraient pas etre un meet qui compte pour MPL
Plutot un genre d evenement special genre Joute du pirate ou klk chose comme cela...
J espere ne froisser personne puis si c est le cas y a des fers a repasser pour defroisser en special chez Walmart! :mrgreen:

This thread can now be locked since there will be no such meeting as detailed in the first post above, mostly for the sake of the MPL’s point system to count this month and not to miss a beat for those who really care about the points. A more conservative & regular meeting will take place on the 24th in order for the points to be tabulated. The show must go on as they say, and it wouldn’t be fair on my part to not fulfill the promised event & date. The rules are a necessary part of any organization, that is a hard fact to deny. But there are always exceptions to the rules in any organization worth growing.

Example : The MPL at Starburst Montreal which I pushed for with the help of my co-worker Michel, and worked hard to convince our corporate bosses to hold at the season’s end in their Montreal showroom with brand new machines never collects the fees for hosting and gives it all back to the league to encourage growth. So as suggested I will take it down a notch from now on and accommodate the league and its rules going forward for both these events.

See the new thread for the October meeting once this one is locked. I will post in the traditional fashion of how the October MPL will roll at the Montreal Pinball shop. This locked thread will be one for the books, (and the recycling bin) the one meeting that got away and could have been extra-ordinary and broke new ground.

I wouldn't go as far as that. But I see that I have passed my usefulness in the league. Vote yourselves a new league president in a couple of weeks. With my day job, 3 kids, and all the jobs I have at home, time is thin and I just don't care about the bullshit anymore.

RAB stated to me a while back that I knew nothing about running a site and that I was holding everything back. Maybe he's right...

So as of today, the league leadership is transfered in the interim to Splitskull, and you all can vote a new league president.

Coup d'état successful. LOL I am out.

Damn, I hope I didn't fix all these machines for nothing. The 24th is still on in my book. Just no waitresses, no real food and 10 bucks to get in, limit of 24 guests so I have kicked off all the noobies from the list.

Can I start the official meeting thread now ?

And can we throw another retirement party for Sparky until he comes back ?

@Sparky. Jesus.. again with the retirement... ok. You can retire until Nov meeting. :)

@MrH. maybe next year.

@Rob IMO don't need to eliminate your invitees. It's your place, you can invite whoever you wish. It's is not the first or last time MPL nights will have non regulars in them. The more people play pinball the better.

I'll close this thread, so Rob can make a new one.
