Rare jongens die Amerikanen - IFPA 17

Bericht door Den Duze » 01 apr 2020, 17:20

Terwijl men over de gehele wereld alles uitstelt/afgelast zie ik volgend bericht mbt IFPA 17 :shock:

To ensure the competitive pinball community stays safe and does all it can to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the IFPA has made the difficult decision to change the date and location of the IFPA17 World Pinball Championship.

Originally scheduled for May 29th-31st, 2020 at The Pinball Asylum in Fort Myers, Florida, the IFPA is moving up the dates of IFPA17 before the pandemic gets worse. The new date for IFPA17 will be April 24-26th, 2020. Due to the current travel restrictions, the site for IFPA17 has moved to IFPA Headquarters in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

With the move of IFPA17 to Illinois comes the COVID-19 state orders that the IFPA will need to follow. Yesterday, Governor JB Pritzker extended the stay-at-home order through to the end of April statewide.

With that order in place, the IFPA will look to fill the field of IFPA17 with all ranked players currently following the stay-at-home order within IFPA HQ. Amanda Sharpe, once ranked as high as 2177th in the world back in August 2010, hasn’t play in an IFPA sanctioned event since 2015 and is currently not ranked. Other members at IFPA HQ including Colin, Charlotte and Evan Sharpe are also unranked. This leaves Josh Sharpe as the lone eligible participant for the IFPA17 World Pinball Championship.

It’s an extremely tough decision to make, but the IFPA feels that it’s best for everyone for the organization to move forward in this manner. We look forward to awarding Josh Sharpe with his first Major Championship victory after the tournament concludes on April 26th.

Rare jongens ....
