      Join us on a Tuesday evening from 6pm for Belles and Chimes women's pinball meetup in the Netherworld!
      Belles and Chimes (www.bellesandchimespinball.com) is a group of meetups established in 2013 that happens around the world to provide a casual, inclusive space to learn and play pinball with like minded folks.
      It’s hosted by denizens Beck and Belinda - Beck’s just starting to learn the ins and outs of pinball while Belinda’s been playing competitively for years.
      There's no strict format - all you need to do is meet up, grab a drink and play!
      It will happen monthly on Tuesdays throughout the year. It's free to join in and is open to women and non-binary persons of all skills levels.

What's Split Flipper? You take a flipper each and work together - that's team work!   Registration is at 6pm for a 7pm start for a 3 Strikes comp on Sunday the 12th of December. Entry is $30 per pair which comes with your first drink each. Grab tickets via events.humanitix.com/nwpinballprom   We’ll be doing formal photos for all attendees with a prom photographer and will almost definitely spin a slow dance on the decks at some point.
