Ghost Town?
« on: June 10, 2024, 02:10:13 PM »
Does nobody post Local Tournaments anymore? Seems a missed out on a few, and I am sure a bunch of others have as well?

Yes, it seems there is less tournament posting activity in general on the boards (not just The Village).  Florida Tournament Pinball (FTP) on FB gets decent traffic, but I think by now, the tourney players just simply go to IFPA's site and look on those calendars.

Even though there is less posting, there are more Florida tournaments and players than ever-Florida has recently reached Super State status in 2024 (100+ tourneys and 400+unique players).  This is the fastest this has happened since the SCS series began.   There are so many places to play and people out there competing. It is impressive.
