Too bad it’s on the same day as Ohio Women’s state championships! Plus it is the day after the State Championship series tourneys on Jan.18th…

In October 2017 we formed the first Belles & Chimes Chapter in the Carolina’s (Charlotte) which runs events at Abari Game Bar. It has been announced that The Basement Arcade Bar located just outside Charlotte in Concord will start to run women’s events under Belles & Chimes kicking off Jan. 5 2020. This should introduce more women to pinball and competitive pinball which is great. Unfortunately the most women we’ve ever had qualify for the NC SCS is 1 each year. This event is the day after SCS because it will leverage the same game bank / setup. I surveyed the top women’s players in the Carolina’s using the custom rankings below regarding a date and they approved it. If you know of any friends, family etc. that live in the area and can help spread the word we would appreciate it. We’d love to fill up the 32 spots and have a fun day of competitive pinball. Thanks!

That’s awesome you’re having an Ohio Women’s state championship! We’ll be running one in North Carolina in 2021.

Congrats!!! Great sponsorship and hope it’s an awesome event!
