    Hey mates. Please see below the full event calendar for the 10 Day BPAC Showcase 2019!!!

    List is subject to change but we are confident everything will run as listed.

    Webpage and artwork for all events is coming along swimmingly.

    Below are a few notes on ticketing. Most notably being that the All Access pass will be on sale from April 2nd. More details below brothers and sisters.

    Ticketing overview:
    - you do not need to put your name down for any of the events on Aussie Arcade or Pinside
    - all tickets sales will be done through eventbrite in the coming months. Even if you have listed your name on AA as attending or 'all in' you still must purchase tickets
    - AA will regularly be updated with an attending list from eventbrite sales
    - all event lanyards, pre-paid merchandise, swag and gate entry passes can be collected from Netherworld from Tuesday the 30th of July
    - all event entry fees include one free gate pass into the Ekka Showgrounds for the relevant day
    - the barcode from each gate pass will be logged to the relevant competitor so gate passes can not be sold, swapped and if lost can be easily cancelled and replaced
    - all event sales will close on Sunday the 28th of July at midnight. Any ticketing requests after this date must be sent via email to jimmy@netherworldarcade.com
    - "The All Access All Pinball All Day' lanyard will be on sale from midday on the 2nd of April for 2 weeks only
    - after this time all events will be sold through individual Eventbrite links

    The All Access All Pinball All Day Lanyard aka The Zipper price is $300 and includes:
    - entry into all pinball IFPA endorsed events and pinball side comps across the 10 days
    - 10 gate passes to the Ekka showgrounds
    - Brisbane Masters t-shirt
    - limited edition pin
    - bunch of swag from our generous sponsors

    I hope you guys and gals find this calendar as exciting as we do.

    Ticket purchase links and more coming soon

    Love from the BPAC Massive

    People here keep asking me for details about BPAC and i'm all "What's that? You mean Brisbane Masters??"
    Anyway, there is significant interest among the Portland people who aren't satisfied with their Pinburgh waitlist status.
    Are there hotel (or other) deals I should be recommending to them this year?
    It also sounds like some may be considering a larger Aussie trip with BPAC at the core and may be looking for good add-on suggestions.

    Hey mates. Just a note that the entire BPAC Showcase is OPEN TO ALL AGES though there will be a couple of stipulations.

    The Stockmans Bar next to the pinball and arcade space is closed to under 18's after 8pm each night. BUT, any paid up junior players are able to stay in the gaming area post 8pm provided they have a guardian and are wearing a wrist band.

    Netherworld will also be giving special consideration to junior players that week and allow under 18's competitors in to the venue for the Brisbane Pinball Club on the Wednesday night.

    Huzzah!

    Hey mates

    Just in preparation for the 10 Day Zipper Pass going on sale Tuesday that includes all major and side pinball comps, I thought I would break down the cost of the other events so you can get a clear view of the savings.

    Basically, the full cost for all the main and side pinball comps would be $365 or $395 if you play in the women's comp (not including coin drop for the Pump & Dump or buy ins for the Stall Ball Cup).

    The Zipper Pass gives you all main and side pinball comps for $300 (excluding coin drop for the Pump & Dump or buy ins for the Stall Ball Cup) plus a Brisbane Masters t-shirt, limited edition pin and a bunch of swag from our sponsors.

    9th - Pump & Dump - $10 (coin drop extra)
    10th - Classics Pinball - $40
    10th - Classic Flip Frenzy - $30
    11th - Fair Strikes - $30
    11th - Split Flipper - $10
    12th - Pincadia Mini Matchplay - $15
    13th - Brisbane Pinball Club at Netherworld - $15
    14th - Tweed/Coolangatta Pinball Club - $20
    15th - Herb Warm Up - $50
    15th - 3 Strikes - $20
    16th - QUEENS-Land Womens Championshp - $30
    16th - Random Pairs Side Comp - $10
    17th - Masters - $75
    17th - Stall Ball Cup - $10 (plus buy for each game)
    18th - Closing Party Flip Frenzy - $30

    As for the amount of tickets available, The Zipper pass is limited to 60 as that is the maximum amount of tickets available for the Classics Flip Frenzy. All other comps can handle around 150 players.

    Just a reminder too folks that every event entry fee includes one free gate pass for the Ekka showgrounds.

    If you have any other questions let me know mates.
