July 14th – 15th, 2012 at the Playdium in Mississauga, Canada

Well, last time it really was on with Donkey Kong, because there was a Donkey Kong high score challenge along with the main pinball tournament. This July, the Canadian Pinball Championships will return!

At the 2009 event, there were over 130 pinballers in the tournament at the Playdium store where they sell arcade games. This time, it’s being held at the nearby Playdium amusement center, which by the looks of the website seems to be similar to a Dave and Buster’s or a Jillian’s (local references, FTW).

I’m ready to go! It’s only a relatively short flight and a passport away from me, so I’m looking forward to seeing further details.
