Thanks to Kim for hosting everyone this week! We had one new member this week, so welcome to Anthony! Scores are up on the PAPA site. Luch is back in the lead for most improved, and Mike Capocci is close to edging out John for second place in the overall points total.
Next week, we’re at 3030 downtown for our first public location since the Pinball Cafe closed down. Remember that there is no host fee for this location, but that games are on coin drop (everyone is responsible for paying for their own league games), and food and drink is your own responsibility. Fortunately, 3030 has a good variety of both available, so you should be covered. See everyone there!
Scores for this week are up, and while Adam and John are still in the 1/2 spots, Mike and Steve M have both moved up a little. Barry has also jumped to the lead for Most Improved.
For this week’s Mystery Score challenge, Adam J and Chris B each won a pair of headphones courtesy of Myles. We’ll be giving away two sets of premium earbuds each week until we’re done with them.
See everyone at Kim’s next week!
TOPL is putting the TO back in the PL by finally heading back downtown again to visit 3030 for a league night on Oct 5th.
As this is a public venue there will be no host fee for the night, but you will be responsible for coin drop at the location. Also 3030 has a great selection of food and beer so make sure you come hungry/thirsty!
For new players who can’t make it out to our more rural locations, this is an opportunity to give Canada’s longest standing pinball league a try. League fees are waived for new members if you have never attended a league night before.
Also as a reminder a Williams Disco Fever will be given away at our playoffs at the end of this season, and just by attending on Oct 5th that gets you another shot to win this machine!
Finally we will also be doing a Mystery Tshirt draw on that night and giving away one of the TOPL Grey Colored TShirts!
For anyone not familiar with our regular league nights, players are put in the groups of 3 or 4 so we need players to show up before 8pm to sign in as groupings will be created at 8pm sharp and play will begin as soon as sheets have been completed.
Look forward to seeing everyone at 3030!
Mike, Adam and Chris

Want to take a moment and recognize some new sponsors to the league!
First Kim Darwoski, Kim donated a Tshirt to the league that was misplaced but $30 has been provided to make up the cost of the misplaced shirt. Once the run of white shirts has been sold out, we have plans to do another run of color TOPL shirts and at that time we will purchase a shirt with Kim’s donation to giveaway as part of our Mystery Score Giveaway! So thanks very much for that Kim.
Next Myles Cameron has graciously donated 10 sets of headphones to the league! We will be giving these away 2 sets per week for the next 5 weeks again via Mystery score. Thanks very much to Myles for the donation!
Finally Mike Luciani has donated another $100 to the league again to increase the food available at the league Playoffs!
Thanks to each and every one of our sponsors! Your support is very much appreciated.
If you have something you would like to donate to the league, please let myself, Luch or Chris know and we will work with you to see it best benefit everyone in the league!

Thanks to Jim for hosting again this week! The pinball problem reports from the playoffs definitely helped, since it meant a whole bunch of issues that everyone found with the games at the last tournament had been fixed. Sometimes, half the problem of keeping these games running is just knowing what is broken and how to reproduce the problem, so remember that if you run into a problem with a game, grab a form and file a problem report. Blank forms are with the score sheets.
Scores for this week are up, and it’s still a pretty close race for points. Note that we’re dropping the 3 lowest weeks right off the bat now, so look at the “adjusted points” to see where you stand. Chris and Luch are both pulling double digits in Most Improved, and Adam appears to be pulling ahead yet again in high scores.
Next week, we’re at Chris’ place in Mississauga, and we’ll be starting a new Mystery Score Giveaway. Myles has donated a bunch of pairs of headphones to the league, so we’ll be giving away two pairs a night until we’re through them. Thanks Myles!
