    I assume Expobrawl is on again this year. Can anyone confirm this? It's one of the things I most look forward to each year at Expo.

    Yes. Chris sent out emails on Sept 14th. It didn't have costs in the email so I sent him an email asking for the details and haven't heard back yet. So sent him a FB message. Maybe he'll see that one.

    This is what he sent:

    Registration for ExpoBrawl 2015 is open!

    As in 2014, this is a pin golf event that will be played on Friday 10/16
    in the morning.

    Teams will consist of two players and two teams will play together to
    help validate scores for the other team. We will start the entire field
    at the same time. The number of courses and holes will depend on the
    number of players.

    Pinball Expo wristbands must be purchased separately and are required to
    enter the hall in order to participate in ExpoBrawl 2015.

    If you have already emailed about registration I will get back with you
    in the next couple of days.

    I have emailed multiple times and still no reply.

    My biggest question is WHAT TIME will this all happen? I want to be able to head over to pinexplosion and PBL by 1:30-2 but if the finals are really running till 5pm then I have no interest in playing.

    I remember last year getting knocked out early from playoff and being at PBL by 1:00 at latest.

    I never got such an email having participated in E-Brawl the last few years. Thanks for the update.

    The email info is different than what is posted here

    Also sent an email with no response

    Not surprising as the info for the main expo tourney is in the same state of misinformation.

    That looks like info from two years ago that hasn't been updated. They changed the format to Pingolf last year. No shirt and no lunch to get the prices down.

    The pingolf was fun, but I preferred the more traditional style tournament.

    Agree.

    Maybe keep pingolf for the qualifying round but I much prefer a head to head style for the playoffs

    What made Expobrawl fun and different was that it was a team tournament. With the pingolf format, it's basically every man for themselves.

    #11 4 years ago

    ExpoBrawl Golf format for the playoffs needs to change. Using score from qualifying and adding to it made playing in the playoffs non-rewarding for some teams as they couldn't move up at all no matter how they played in the playoffs. Hope they changed that for 2015.

    Anyone heard anything yet from organizers?

    absolutely nothing.

    I am starting to think the team event is not going to happen and I should just make other plans.

    #14 4 years ago

    Hey guys, I'm helping Chris with it this year. It is definitely on! Let me check and see if I have more details. I'll post up what I can from memory; apologies in advance if I've got it a bit wrong.

    *edit* new thread here, with info in the first post so people won't have to dig:
