Yes, that’s right you heard that correctly. After getting multiple suggestions that we should do something like this, we are having a go at organizing a pinball tournament among downtown businesses, to kick off within the week. This will be a very socially distant tournament – business owners or representatives can come in to the arcade at any point to set their own scores without any sort of group in the arcade. This will be a double elimination style tournament with multiple rounds, and different games featured in each round.
We will be keeping track of scores and posting updates on our facebook page, as well as keeping a giant updated winners bracket in our score. Right now the tournament’s first round is shaping up as follows:
1. WILLOW & BIRCH vs. SPRINGFIELD VINTAGE
2. GALLINA’S PIZZA vs. CORRINE’S CLOSET
3. MAYOR LANGFELDER vs. RESOURCE ONE
4. KRISTI MITCHELL PHOTOGRAPHY vs. LA PIAZZA
5. REVERIE APPAREL vs. PRAIRIE ARCHIVES
6. GOOD HEART TATTOO vs. ABRAHAM LINCOLN
7. DAISY JANE’S vs. DOWNTOWN SPRINGFIELD INC.
8. MURPHY’S LOFT vs. CUSTOM CUP
9. THE PHARMACY GALLERY vs. PURE PERFORMANCE FITNESS CENTER
10. WILD ROSE vs. PUBLIC MARKET
Round 1 features the most popular pinball game Medieval Madness, and participants have from August 21st through September 6th to set their high scores.
The winner of the tournament will get an official “downtown Springfield pinball champion 2020” trophy to put on display in their own business.
