Hi everyone, it's Megan Sprague from Ottawa. I'm taking over the reigns from Monty for the O-Town Throwdown, which will indeed be happening during the Ottawa Pinball & Gameroom Show at the Nepean Sportsplex, September 22-23. This IFPA-sanctioned event will be an unlimited, best game qualifying format on Saturday with PAPA-style match play finals on Sunday. Everyone will get two (2) free entries with show admission. Additional entries are $3 each or 2 for $5. When not playing entries, you can take advantage of dozens of pinball and arcade machines set on free play, visit the Pin History booth to learn about the origins of the hobby (complete with some classic games), explore vendor booths and the flea market, and even meet Dirty Donny!

Anyone who donates a machine will get a free weekend pass in addition to eligibility for the volunteer hour.
