For any Kansas City Pinsiders interested in playing some pinball this weekend, there is going to be a pinball tournament this Saturday at 3:30PM at the 403 Club, 403 North 5th St, Kansas City, KS 66101. I'm not putting it on myself, but I'm planning on playing and want to get some good competition to show up. If there is a decent turn out then the plan is to have this tournament on the first Saturday of every month. Match play, entry fee is $5, games are not set to free play so you will need some quarters. If you want to practice early, they have Bram Stoker's Dracula, Indy 500, Batman Forever, Rollergames, Apollo 13, and Goldeneye set up, and one of the players will be bringing in his Lethal Weapon 3 just for the tournament. All the machines are maintained regularly and play very well compared to other pinballs that you might find on location (but the tilt mechanisms are set very sensitive, just FYI).
This is a bar and it is normally 21+, but minors are welcome if accompanied by a parent. Artie (the owner) has agreed to add $50 to the prize pool so if you finish in the money you should get a nice payoff.
