First of all, hope everyone is staying safe, and staying inside your home… If you are learning something new, then hopefully that is going well for you, also people who are cleaning up their houses/fixing up their games/etc. those things will pay off, in the sense that you will have done your spring cleaning early. If your out working, then please be careful.
Anyways though onto the meat of why i am posting…. Awhile ago (the end of March) I got a letter from the director of Play More Pinball in Arizona. Heres what she said.
Dear AZ Pinball Community,
I miss seeing your faces at our regular pinball events.
So the IFPA has suspended all their operations and sanctioning of tournaments for the foreseeable future. I have updated the revelant pages as I am going to ASSUME we will not have a may tournament, and June tournament will NOT be happening. Arcades/barcades/etc. should be open BUT the IFPA i am going to assume isn’t going to “flip a switch” and everything will come online at once. So like i said I have updated everything currently as of now. Some barcades (not locally sorry) have resorted to renting out their pinball machines. I am keeping an eye out on the Arizona pinball and classic arcade pages.
Hopefully this news will end up not being true and i wasted my time posting this but i fear thats what will happen.
