    The schedule has been set for Kiwi Pincade 2018!!

    Kiwi Pincade is held sequentially at various locations throughout New Zealand over four days. This year's two cities will be Wellington and Auckland. Although fine tuning to the timetable will come over the next few months, these things are set in concrete:

    1. Starts in Wellington, Thursday 8th March 2018 1pm at a commercial location where festivities and a tournament (Wellington Pincade IFPA 3 strike competition) will be held beginning in the early evening. Location TBA but probably the Moon Bar.

    2. Friday 9th March 9am until 1pm: Breakfast and pinball at a Wellington host's home or another commercial venue from

    3. Friday 1-3pm: Fly to Auckland (about one hour's flight time) followed by one or two people's gamesroom that afternoon/night.

    4. Saturday 10 March from 9am: Breakfast at the first gamesroom, followed by two or three other gamesrooms around Auckland.

    5. Sunday 11 March from 9am: all day at the RD arcade in Pukekohe where two huge tournaments will be held. These are the Pincade Classics and the 3rd System 11 World Championships. We expect around 100 participants for each tournament so there will be lots of IFPA points if you play well. Both tournaments will be run concurrently with set playoff times for each.

    There will be a charge to attend like last year. Bronze, Silver and Gold. This helps pay for venue costs, trophies, lanyards and name tags etc. We haven't finalized prices but to give you an idea, it will be around $60 to attend the entire weekend. Pincade T shirts, hoodies, raffle tickets will be extra. Some breakfasts will be included in your $60. Crazy bargain time.

    Yee will raffle off a restored Judge Dredd pinball machine on Saturday night. This will be limited to 100 tickets. Ticket price will be $50 each. If the lucky owner doesn't want it, it will be followed by an auction.

    Pincade 2017 was a record year with 160 attendees including 34 from overseas. Come join the fun!!

    If anyone has any questions, fire them up on this tread and I'll answer them for you.

    Cheers!

    Trying to make this happen for my wife and I, the flight to Auckland, is that set up by the event or do we make our own arrangements?

    You make your own bookings for the flights.

    You can fly Air New Zealand or Jetstar, if you book online well in advance it only costs around $39-49 each (nzd). Usually the flights leave 2-230pm.

    As a previous Pincade 8 attendee, I can say with confidence (and as an American, lol) that it is one of the best international pinball events you can ever hope to travel to.

    Awesomely gracious people first off. (Both attending and hosting... )
    Beautiful NZ scenery to be had during your stay whilst traveling to each venue.
    Good eats. (Grass fed beef!)
    RD's collection ALONE is a must visit.
    THE Wayne Anderson!!!
    L&P is delicious.
    Air NZ is probably the best airline ever.

    If anyone in the states is "on the fence" attending such an event like this, just let me know and I'd be happy to push you off of said fence with tales of adventure...or Ad Jonker slideshows.
    Whichever is easier. lol

    They also have Hobbits...

    Found a flight plan that would include the flight between the cities. Now figuring out some other activities while there. Planning some rafting, diving, hiking, and my wife wants the Hobbit tour. Looking to be there at least 10 days. Fly that far, make it worth the flight time.

    One of my favourite beaches. About a hour out of Auckland city worth the drive spend the day exploring that part of auckland. Also Leigh marine reserve in the same area you can see the fish from the rocks. snorkel if you want.

    Well, that's toast. Hope u are doing 2019! My wife has to switch jobs, so with a probable break in her income, and no guarantee she will be able to get the time, looks like I'm out :-((. Will try again for '19, already picked out a lot of extra things to do in NZ too. Hope your show in '18 goes amazing!

    Pincade related - sort of.

    @danni_nz has started up Belles and Chimes in NZ ... the first chapter outside of the USA!

    While we may not have time for an Offical Belles and Chimes Comp during Pincade, the Belles will certainly be getting together!

    Yees is just a fun event. There are going to be some “pinball Olympics” style games there.

    There are 4 other huge comps over the 4 days so plenty of opportunities for Whoppers.

    2/ Sys11 Champs (Sunday)

    Bump!

    Just sent in fees for me & a guest (identity TBD). Planning to spend a few extra days in-country either before or after the event, but haven't quite decided which end yet. May let the flight prices determine that for me. Haven't really settled on which airport to connect through either... SF, LAX? Or try the Hawaiian flight through Honolulu...

    Is anyone planning to coordinate Auck-Welly flights/rides? (pinball party plane??!)

    I dunno about any of you, but i'm already super excited about this. I even just decided to renew my passport several months early to make sure some stupid work travel scheduling doesn't get in the way.

    #43 36 days ago

    Good times. I was wondering last night if you were coming over.

    Re Wellington flights, I haven’t booked them yet but generally we are leaving around the 2pm mark.

    Glad to see some people from usa and canada coming.

    As I might told already, my company requires me full time this year, she walked for a while then now she runs very slowly (private joke inside).

    I am already thinking about 2019... but I never promise.

    Of course it is not a pleasure to have to work instead of having fun in pincade but it is a wise choice (and i am not a wise men sometimes)

    I wish you a lot of fun and I ll check everything going on as I will not defend my titles of the Sydney pinball marathon and Sys 11 comp...

    Good flipping to all and hope to put my arms again on a certain Twilight Zone that is chillin' at the beach house (no roast pork for me in 2018 !!)

    Congrats to Yee and Rd for hosting this wonderful event.
