Throwing an idea out there:

How about Florida Tournament Pinball (FTP) and use a derivative of the classic STP logo (see attachment)

Instead of their slogan "The Racer's Edge" it can be "The Player's Edge"

As much as I dislike Facebook it is commonly used for communicating tournament and league info.

Note there is an IFPA calendar available, the most convenient and accurate way of tracking scheduled IFPA rated tournaments.  https://www.ifpapinball.com/calendar/

If you were to ask my preference I would go for Meetup for regularly scheduled pinball events... much better at calendaring and push notifications of reminders and forum communications, with the bonus of managing RSVPs.

I set up a Calendar as a test, but someone with knowledge of Facebook really needs to take the lead and create a Facebook group with various levels of access.

Kurt had started the thread back in August and the implication from his first post, at least in mind, was that he would be putting it together and many of us would be contributing. 

I'll be glad to help however I can, LMK what is needed.

I set up a shell on Facebook for the current tourney directors I know of in Florida.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/960006820809365/?ref=ts&fref=ts

Right now I invited

Cody Miller
Dan Spolar
Donny White
Joe Geneau
Josh Beam
Kurt Van Zyl

Since these are the current tourney directors in the state I know of.  John I doesn't do FB, so he is not on there.

I think the idea should be to get a calendar on there so we can all add IFPA events, (not club or league meetings that don't have IFPA points) .  I don't know how to, but Kurt said he could.

We can then start adding people from the Florida IFPA list and see if we can find them on Facebook.

I'm not sure how the admin or moderator functions work, but at least we have a shell.  Keep in mind I am not looking for it to be "my site" and I don't want to be the sole moderator or administrator.

I had to pick a name and figured we can change if need be.  The page photo can also change.  As I said it is a shell.

I figured 2017 is right around the corner and we should have something up. 

Again, I'm always available to help out tourney pinball in our state.

This will be a great asset to the Florida pinball community. With so many choices and tournaments available it will be nice to see when to request time off from work, plan a family vacation around a major tournament. Thanks to all who are contributing, it is much appreciated.

Calendar is implemented on FB now.  TDs and players can see what is coming up.

I find looking at the actual calendar easier than line by line entries.
