    I'm happy to say that we got Idaho on the map this year. We're working on the details now. The format is specified in the rules: single elimination for each round, based on best 4 out of 7 games, each game on different pin if possible.

    It's pretty clear to me how to determine placement for 1st through 4th. Anyone know how you're supposed to pair up players and determine 9th through 16? Those are all the people who lose their first (7-game) match. Same for the players who lose their second match, and will be ranked 5th through 8th.

    Finally, does anyone how to handle a no-show? I assume someone gets a by round, but who?

    Marcus, thank you for taking the time to write all of that. It is a big help and I'll probably print it out as a reference. (An app would be ideal for this)
    How many pins do you have available, and do you have any advice for using them efficiently to keep things moving? I know the higher seeded player gets to choose pin or position. We are hoping to have 8 pins available.

    My understanding is that everyone plays on Saturday Feb 11. My tournament co-director has Nat'l Guard duties that day, so we're not starting until 5pm.

    My daughter, 15 year old Aviana Smith won Idaho.

    Are there any write-ups on previous national championships, specifically which games were selected? There is a lot of first-timer excitement happening at my house. We're wondering if EM games might be used, if ball-saves are turned on or off, tilt settings, etc..

    btw there was an article about the Idaho finals on the Idaho Statesman newspaper webpage - http://www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/article132303289.html.

    Awesome - thank you for that link

    We are flying in on Wednesday, and staying at one of the Marriotts near the freeway close to the Fun Billiards place. Does anyone know where we can squeeze in some pinball near there before or after? Pinball Map shows nothing in Mesquite. The expo thing at the convention center doesn't look that tempting either really. So, what is there to do nearby? Anyone local want to show us their private collection? I'll return the favor if you come to Boise.

    The games - are extra balls allowed to be played, or are they typically turned off or not allowed?
    The venue - is there a spectator area with monitors? Can people come in and watch for free?

    We are planning to go to Nickelrama on Wednesday afternoon (March 15). Would love to meet up with other players.
