New IFPA/ Project Pinball Charity Campaign 2015
« on: March 06, 2015, 03:59:05 PM »
The IFPA/ Project Pinball Charity Campaign is back! And giving away a pinball machine.

Josh Sharpe had this to say:

Following the success of last year IFPA/ Project Pinball Charity Campaign fundraiser which raised over $23,000, the IFPA is proud to announce that we are teaming up with Project Pinball to help raise funds for their charity again this year. This IFPA/ Project Pinball Charity Campaign 2015 will not be limited to one month but run the entire year.

The IFPA plans on treating each of these Project Pinball tournaments as a unique event with the point allotment change this year. Each of these tournaments could be worth full value WPPR points decided by the tournament input information as what would be similar to the tournaments you are entering to our site now. Go to the “submit to the IFPA Calendar” link here: http://www.ifpapinball.com/calendar/submit.php, if you're interested in setting up an event and we'll work with you on getting it added to the IFPA calendar. We hope to set up events nationwide and use competitive pinball as a way to help raise funds for this great charity. The tournament must be scheduled 30 days before the tournament is to be held to qualify.

Below is the announcement from Daniel Spolar of the Project Pinball Charity:

After the success of the IFPA/ Project Pinball Charity July Campaign 2014 and the huge support that we received from the pinball community, we are returning with a bigger and better offering for our tournament players.

The IFPA/ Project Pinball Charity Campaign 2015 will be a year long tournament fundraiser event. Plus, we are now offering a chance to win a brand new pinball machine of the winner’s choice for its grand prize as well as other super prizes to be won.

We have been working with the IFPA and have greatly appreciated their help, guidance and insight with the new WPPR point changes and their assistance to bring this to the pinball community. The IFPA will allow WPPR points to given to those participating in this charity drive to help entice players to attend. The IFPA points will be determined by Tournament Director’s information submitted as they would for a regular tournament. No extra WPPR point value will be offered just because this is a charity tournament as it was in the past, but hey, you can win a pinball machine and still help people!
