Registration for the IFPA North American Pinball Championship closes tomorrow, Sunday, January 28th at 8pm CST.

We’re going to try to do one better than that, and use the community to track down these missing Champions who have yet to respond to their invite. If you know these people feel free to reach out to them about accepting this invite before it’s too late.

IFPA New Jersey State Champion –> Ken Rossi (FOUND!)
