NEPL Season 15 starts next week!

Season 15 of NEPL is here. The season starts for us next Monday May 15th. We start at 7:30 PM sharp. Please try to come 1/2 hour early to sign up for the season. The season lasts for 8 weeks and finals will be at the end of August. If you can’t make the first week or two no problem. Join us as soon as you can. Only have to make 5 of the 8 weeks to qualify for finals. The cost for the season is $30 for league entry dues plus the suggested $10 weekly donation. All games on freeplay as usual. All money from the $30 dues goes into equal prize money and trophies for all 4 skill divisions plus the New In Box Stern Pinball Machine raffle at the end of the year. You get on entry for each of the 3 seasons you play for the year.

See everyone next week.

Congrats to our first winner Keith Merril, in or series of weekly knockout tournaments. We were amazed with 49 players signing up. 3 strike event took about 3 hours which is impressive for the number of players. If the number of players continues like this we will change the format to 2 strikes to keep the time down for a weeknight event. Thanks to everyone who came and tiltcycle for the great prizes and trophies.
