Scores and Standings-Week 4

Thanks to everyone who made it out to my place last night-we had a good turnout, including a couple of new members.  Sarah brought James out for his first week, and Devin made it out on a trip home from his research job in Japan.  James, I hope we’ll see you and Sarah out for the rest of the season, and Devin-you’re welcome anytime you’re back in the country.  Glad you could fit some beer and pinball into the trip.

Scores and Standings-Week 2

Thanks to Adam and Denise for having everyone up to their place again, and keeping everyone fed through the evening.  This was one of the quickest league nights that I can remember, with all 6 groups finishing league games in under 90 minutes, which says a lot about the difficulty of Adam’s games.
Congrats to Dave Newman on his first high score in a league game!  High scores this week go to:

Order your ToPL T-shirts now!

Update: T-Shirt deadline has passed. The silk-screened shirts described below are no longer available but we have posted the design on Zazzle for on-demand shirts. Click here to order from Zazzle

 

We are now taking orders for quality league t-shirts.

They feature our new logo on the front and back. The front is smaller than the back version.

These are quality silk-screened shirts with 5 colours. They are being manufactured locally by a quality shop, and each shirt is baked in an oven after the silk screening process to properly cure the ink for longevity.  I visited the shop and chose and inspected a quality shirt to print on. I hope these shirts will last a long time.

My goal with the shirt was to basically create a uniform we can represent in out in public, at tournaments and shows. The big logo on the back facing out as we play, but also the smaller version on front identifying us.

Below is a mock-up of the shirt. They will be charcoal in colour as everyone I spoke with requested a dark colour.

Sizes available are SM – XXXL.

This will be the ONLY time these silk-screened shirts can be ordered as we will likely not be able to get the quantities needed again to run them in the future. I will put the designs on a site like zazzle later for digital on demand printing, but this is the only time to get the quality shirt. You may want to order multiples.

Also there will be a zip-up hoodie available with the topl design on the back for $50.

Orders must be placed by Friday June 13th.

I will accept MONEY at league nights until June 23rd. If you cannot be at league please arrange to send money to someone who can pay for you, or pay by EMT but we need to be paid by then as ToPL does not have an operating float or budget and has no money to inventory shirts.
