Community Spotlight – InPlay Family Fun Center

Inplay

I wanted to take a moment and recognize a family fun center that has been kept running by the sheer determination of one of the founding members of the Toronto Pinball League.

InPlay now with 2 locations, one in Newmarket and one in Barrie was started by Sarah Brown, I want to say some 10 years ago now.  It is a great location that the league used to visit until we out grew the location.  My last visit, Sarah was still keeping the pinball spirit alive with Medieval Madness, Cirqus Voltaire and Monster Bash at her Newmarket location.

We wish Sarah continued success in her venture and if you are ever in need of a location for a party you should give InPlay a look.

Scores and Standings-week 2

Thanks to Kim for hosting another great TOPL week.  Many of the new people from last week made it out again this time around, so we had a solid 31 players for Kim’s large collection. 

High scores this week went to several people who weren’t Adam:

We’re taking next Monday off for Easter weekend, but we’re at Andrew’s the week after that.  Have a great long weekend, and see everyone in a couple of weeks!

Scores and standings-Week 1

Welcome to the start of another TOPL season!  First, a huge thanks to Luch for hosting this week, which is always one of the busiest weeks of the year.  We had a good number of regulars come out, as well as a couple of folks we hadn’, but what was unprecedented was the number of new players we had this week.  Usually, there are one or two new people in a week, and maybe a group of three or four, but this week we had eight new players out for their first TOPL week (although to be fair, Andrew made it to playoffs).  So welcome to Mike, Julian, Mario, Josh, Andrew, Jeff, Mandle, and Glen-it was great that you all made it out, and hopefully you had a good time.  Remember that your league fees cover you for the entire season, which runs from now until the playoffs in July (tentatively scheduled for July 19).  The only money you’re on the hook for week to week is the host fee ($10), so enjoy the season!

Playoff results-March 2015

Thanks again to Adam and Denise for hosting everyone for the playoffs at their place this past weekend, and for keeping the food coming through the day.  It was a hard fought tournament with 20 rounds of match play, so everyone had a great day of pinball on a wide variety of really tough games.  The earlier start and time change didn’t seem to deter anyone, and we didn’t have any late arrivals who missed out on changing their clocks, so the 21 players who showed up were there for all 20 rounds.  At the end of qualifying, here’s how things stood:
