This has been submitted to IFPA for the calendar.    I will confirm here when it has been approved and added to the calendar. The tournament will be a 3 strikes knockout tournament.  I would expect approximately 50 players, so the event should generate a fairly high point total.  As in previous years, there will be trophies provided for the Top 4.  There will be several Side tournaments, also with trophies.  There will be no entry fees, as all trophies will be purchased by host and all IFPA fees will be paid by host.  More detail to follow.

Special Guest Machine Announcement

AS many of you know, friends are often kind enough to being special, rare or new games to my open house.

I am please to announce that Marshall from Little Shop of Games has offered to bring a Willie Wonka LE to the party.  There will be a separate high score tournament on this machine, just for fun and for a trophy I will provide.

I have also encouraged Marshall to bring along any parts he wishes to make available for sale.  If you need anything and want to save on shipping, you might reach out to Marshall in advance of the event to let him know what you need. 

I am very happy that Marshall has continued the tradition started by Curly years ago of bringing new and interesting games to my event to share with the community.

curly bought down a Hulk to ron's years ago...that effort ended up making me get one. don't know if i'm happy or mad about all that, all these years later. :)

have not had a chance to play a wonka. awesome move to get a lot of local eyes on that machine. ;D
