The Chicago Pinball Mafia was founded in 2004 as an alternative competitive pinball league for the Chicagoland area. While focusing on pinball, CPM is also intended to facilitate social interactions and foster a sense of community among its members.
The mafia typically holds competitions on the third saturday evening of the month, April to October (inclusive). All mafia members must be of legal age and must reside in the greater Chicagoland area.
The mafia is more than happy to encourage the significant others of members to join, especially women.
The mafia does not discriminate based upon income or race.
