Belles & Chimes operates on the assumption that chapter leaders know best what works for their communities. Therefore, we do not require any specific format or frequency for affiliated leagues.
We are happy to provide suggested formats and technical advice whenever asked, but in general organizers are free to run their chapters as they please as, subject to the following rules:
1. Belles & Chimes events are women only.
2. Chapters should included a link to bellesandchimespinball.com as well as the following language on their website, "about" section of their Facebook page, and in any press release or media contacts about the league: "Belles & Chimes is a nationwide network of women's pinball leagues started in 2013 in Oakland, California."
3. Sexualized imagery should not be used on any promotional materials (posters, flyers, FB event photos, etc.) for Belles & Chimes events.
Get in touch with us by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Women from all over the country travel to compete in a one-day tournament for a brand new-in-box Stern pinball machine! It's always a great time, and a wonderful opportunity to meet lots of other women pinheads.
