Hello Florida Pinball Family, and Fellow Asylum Inmates!

If you read our email announcing dates for The Point Monsters Championship yesterday morning, and the IFPA announcement yesterday afternoon you might have been thinking the same thing we were thinking:

1. What perfectly bad timing to start IFPA sanctioning just 9 days after Point Monsters!
2. Point Monsters needs to have POINTS!
3. Someone needs to change their dates!

Since our email to IFPA President Josh Sharpe did NOT result in his agreeing to change the start of IFPA Sanctioning (Ha, nice try!), we have decided to move the 8th Edition of The Point Monster's Championship, to August 6-8, 2021.

Yes, friends, there will be IFPA points for the Point Monster's this year!

All other things remain the same, and the details in the previous thread are repeated below for clarity.

We hope all of you-- and especially the 20+ players already signed up-- plan to come out for these new dates!

David, Matt, Matt, Mike, Jeff, Scott, Eric, and Todd

The Main Tournament requires PRE-REGISTRATION and is limited to 60 players.The Classics Tournament can be PRE-PAID for a discount-- when you register-- or just sign-up and pay when you arrive.
