PHILA Pinball Updates for 2018-02-16

Hey Everyone!  I wanted to share some quick updates on games.

* We’ve gotten word that Batman 66 is “on loan” and will be back on-location at some point.
* JunkYard’s right flipper is severely not in line with the lane, so we are marking it as “not playable” in our tracking sheet.  You are welcome to try to play a game on it and submit scores, but the current state of the flipper makes the game unplayable.

The PHILA League adheres to Section 8 of the IFPA/PAPA Ruleset:

Scores will be kept on a disabled machine if the tournament is >50% through the qualifying process. If the tournament is <50% through the qualifying process, all scores will be considered void.

All machines in the contest, with the exception of JunkYard and Batman 66 have reached this 50% requirement.  These games are now “locked in” and will count regardless of whether they go down or are removed between now and the end of the contest.  JunkYard needs 13 more days to count, and Batman needs  12 more days to count.  If it becomes mathmatically impossible for either game to make the 50% threshold, we will remove it from the standings at that point.
