Thanks to everyone who made it out to my place this week, and also to those that bought Girl Guide cookies from my daughter. It wasn’t intentional scheduling, but things worked out so that they got delivered this past weekend, and she thought it’d be a good chance to make a few sales. The whole setup was her idea and doing.
Scores are up on the PAPA site, and the top 5 positions are still only separated by 3 points. Josh is still leading the handicap race and most improved.
Next week we’re out at Bluffs pinball-have a great week everyone!
A big thanks to Jim for not only hosting this week, but taking care of the scores/groups as well. The impending snowstorm (which didn’t actually end up being that bad) kept most of us at home, but there were still 15 players who made it out this week, which still counts! Scores are up on the PAPA site, and for those that missed this week-this is why we drop the three lowest scores.
This season is actually the closest we’ve had in a while, with John and Brian tied for the lead, and Steve, Adam, and Josh all within 4 points of John. No real movement on the most improved standings this week, with Charles and Josh still in the lead.
Next week we’re out at Chris’ place in Mississauga, and hopefully we get another snowmelt before then. Have a great week!
Thanks to Andrew for hosting this week! We tried something a little different this week, since we had even groups for the first time in a while, and let groups pick their own games instead of drawing them at the start. It seemed to work out OK, but I’d be interested in any feedback you might have on it. It’s not something we can do every week (since we need a median for 3 player groups), but we can look at doing this more often in the future if we have the flexibility.
Scores are up on the PAPA site, and John is still in the season points lead. Newman is now ahead of Josh in the Handicap race, and Charles is now in the Most Improved top position.
Next week we’re out to Jim’s place-have a great week everyone!
Thanks to Josh for hosting this week! Scores are up on the PAPA site, and John is maintaining his lead in the season point totals. Josh and Henrik are now tied when the handicap system is considered, and not surprisingly, both of them are doing well in the most improved race as well.
We’re back out in the same neighbourhood next week at Andrew’s place for week 8-have a great week everyone!
Thanks to Kim for hosting this week! Scores are up on the PAPA site now, and the top 7 players are all within 4 points of each other. Josh continues to lead the Most Improved race, as well as the Handicap total.
Speaking of Josh, he’s hosting in 2 weeks, since we’re taking next week off for the Family Day long weekend. See everyone in 2 weeks!
Thanks to Adam for hosting this week! Scores are up on the PAPA site, and we can now start tracking most improved for the season. Josh is out to an early lead this time around, while also tied for the season lead with John, and leading the handicap race. We’ll see if he can keep the pace up for another 9 weeks.
Next week we’re out to Kim’s place-hope to see everyone there!
Thanks to Luch for hosting this week! Scores are up in the usual place, although keep in mind that with dropping the lowest 3 scores, the overall results are a little skewed at this point, since 4 weeks in, only your best score shows up in that column. One more week and we can also start tracking Most Improved for the season.
Next week we’re playing at Adam’s place-have a great week everyone!
Thanks to the whole crew at Tilt for hosting us this week! It’s not often that we get a new public location in the area, but this one worked out really well from all accounts. There was also a decent crowd of non-TOPL folks in the bar last night, which hopefully bodes well for its success. Scores are up on the PAPA site, and Jack is now in the lead for the season, breaking Charles’ 2 week hold on the top spot.
Also, just a reminder to everyone that we’re planning on running our machine giveaway again this year. The plan is simple-for every week you come out, you get an entry into the draw, and at the end of the year, we give away a game to the winner. Everyone except Adam has a chance of winning, and all you have to do to enter is come out to league nights that you were probably going to come to anyway, because pinball. We’re still on the hunt for a suitable game, but the plan is to do the draw at the final playoffs of the year, like we have for the past 2 years now.
Next Monday we’re playing at Luch’s place-have a great week everyone!
After a couple of weeks off for Christmas and New Year’s, TOPL is back for another season. Thanks to Nick for hosting this week! Scores are up on the PAPA site, and one week in Charles is winning the season.
Dates for most of the rest of the season should be on the website, Facebook, and Yahoo (through week 11), and the last few weeks should be filled in soon if you want to really plan ahead. We’re at Eddie’s new location next week-hope to see everyone there!
Remember how we said we were going to give away a pinball machine at the end of 2016? Well, the drawing was this weekend at playoffs, and the winner was Andy McNab:
Congratulations to Andy-enjoy your new game!
We’re already planning what to do for next year’s draw. Remember that all you need to do to enter is to come out to league nights-every event gets you a draw into the end of the year prize pool.
Special thanks to Adam for finding the game and fixing it up to working condition.
