We are proud to introduce Belles & Chimes CLE, Northeast Ohio’s first women’s pinball club.
We aim to provide a welcoming social environment for women of any age and skill level to join in on the pinball fun! Pinball has experienced a massive resurgence in the past few years – especially in the Cleveland area – and we strive to create a fun community centered around these classic games.
Our second season will meet at Superelectric Pinball Parlor (6500 Detroit Avenue). Superelectric has a regularly rotating selection of pinball machines, both classic and modern. Our season opener tournament/party, as well as any educational events, will be held at Happy Dog at Euclid Tavern (11625 Euclid Avenue).
SEASON 2 – HOW IT WORKS
Returning members: $10 season dues, paid on the first night you play.
New members: $5 season dues, paid on the first night you play.
All money is put back into the club for end-of-season prizes.
Our “Let’s Go to the Beach” Tropical Tournament (8/24 @ 8pm at Happy Dog at the Euclid Tavern) is FREE [no entry fee, games on coin drop], and there is no obligation to sign up for the club at that point.
Season Two consists of six bi-weekly club nights. On these nights, you will play four games in a group or three or four. In four player groups, the person with the highest score on a machine earns 5 points; the second highest score earns 3 points; the second lowest score earns 2 points; the lowest score earns 1 point. In three player groups, the points are distributed 5-3-1. After four games, your total points are tallied for the night. See below for a sample score sheet:
After our six meetings, the points will be tallied, and divisions will be created for the final tournament. There will be one drop week (lowest point week automatically erased). NOTE: you must play in at least three club nights to be eligible for finals!
