Fun day of playing in pinball tournaments, visiting with friends, and eating good food on Father's Day, Sun June 18th, in southwest Louisiana. Plans are to have the main tournament be a single elimination, best 3 out of 5 matches type format, and to also have 3 or 4 smaller side tournaments, with some side tournaments being played on only specific machines such as Revenge From Mars, Safecracker, and Varkon. Tournaments will be registered with IFPA and players will earn WPPR points, which the IFPA tracks. Should a machine break down during a tournament, then the tournament director will select another machine to use, so that the tournament can continue. There will be a mixture of pinball machines dating from the 1970's up through 2014 or possibly newer modern models, one or more e-m type machines, classic solid state type, and modern dmd machines.
Bring whatever snacks and drinks you want. The main meat food will be provided for players (smoked beef briskets and sausage I believe). A $10 entry fee per player provides entry into all tournaments (main and all side tournaments), and to enjoy some of the main meat dish. The $10 entry fees will be used to cover costs of trophies, prizes, and the main meat dishes. There will not be any cash prize payouts. Early arrival time is 10 am, practice time from 10 to 11:15 am, with main tournament starting around 11:30 am. Note that this tournament is at a private residence in a neighborhood in sw part of Lake Charles, LA, so please consider car-pooling if possible. Parking will be somewhat limited.
