Such a well run tournament! Having it in its own private area last time made it even better.

Question: If I won B last year, that means I have to qualify for A or nothing this year, right?


#3

Hello @pinballr, Thanks for the compliment!

If you played in B last year you can qualify and play in B this year as long as you’re not IFPA rank restricted. We plan to restrict B to participants ranked ~500 and higher.


#4

Is there a games list yet?
