Southern Coin-Op presents Pinball in Pelham 2, November 19th 2016. We’re following up our first tourney with a very similar format. The entry fee is $30. Practice will be available from 8:30-10:00 am. Tourney begins promptly at 10:15am. Format is group match-play with IFPA scoring. Machines will be arranged into banks of three games, with each bank consisting of a DMD, Solid State, and EM. Each player will play six rounds for a total of eighteen games. There are no finals, just highest point total wins!

Details! Seeding in the first round is random. All rounds after that the seeding is based on Swiss pairing, meaning players will be paired with players who have similar points totals. Banks will be assigned using the balanced method, meaning every effort is made to put you on a different bank each round. Tie breaking will be automatic by the software based on your number of wins and second places. However, any ties in the top six positions will be broken by playing a single game chosen at random.

Prizes will be awarded to the top six finishing positions of 38%, 28%, 15%, 8%, 6%, 5%. There will also be door prizes and another pinball machine will be raffled off! There will not be any food provided but we will take a one hour lunch break after the first or second round. So pack a lunch or go to one of the many places to eat within 5 minutes of Southern Coin-Op. The address for Southern Coin-Op is 108-A Hilltop Business Center Drive, Pelham, Alabama 35124.

Many (but not all) of the same games from our first tourney will be there, plus some notable new additions which will be announced soon. If anyone would like to volunteer a pin for the tourney please contact Mike Gray at southerncoinop@yahoo.com or 205-563-3784.

I know its late, but anyone bringing any machines to sell or trade?

I'm dropping off a machine in AL, and have room in my truck both ways.

I've got a HUO Dale Jr, a Gottlieb Outer space, and a Wms Big Deal (77) for sale or trade.

Looking for an early bally SS, especially a Xenon.

Also anyone from ATL need a ride, let me know.

I think there are several games for sale but mostly EM's. I remember Pioneer and Bowl-O had prices on them. Elvis will be in the tourney but is already sold.

The venue reminds me of the beloved Tilt Town in Michigan.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our second tourney! We had 38 players and everything ran pretty smoothly. The only games that broke down that I know of were Meteor, Aztec, and Scared Stiff. Matchplay.live worked perfectly for us and we completed the 6 rounds of 3 games in about 7 hours + 1 hour lunch. I think most everyone had a good time and we must have given away about a dozen door prizes. The winner walked away with $430 cash, all the way down to $60 for 6th place. If you're anywhere near B'ham Alabama you should come to our next one some time in February 2017.
