Hey folks! It's that time of year again...that time of year where we make announcements about the NW Pinball Championships!
- This year we are changing the Open and Novice divisions over from the traditional Best Game format to the "ex-PAPA" or "PAPA 19 and earlier" format! We did this because we like that format a lot, and miss it now that PAPA isn't using it anymore. Classics will remain Best Game. As before, we'll be using the Never Drains Manager tournament software for queueing and scorekeeping.
- Ticket cost is TBD. We will crunch the numbers and attempt to figure out a cost that keeps the average per-player spend to roughly the same amount as it has been before.
- We're back on the PAPA Circuit! That's right, NWPC2017 is a PAPA Circuit event!
