Southern Coin-Op presents Pinball in Pelham 3, January 27th, 2018. It's been over a year but we're back! The entry fee is $30. Practice will be available from 8:30-10:00 AM Central time. Tourney begins promptly at 10:15am. Format is group match-play with IFPA scoring(4 player group 7,5,3,1 or 3 player group 7,4,1). Each player will play six rounds of three games for a total of eighteen games. There are no finals, just highest point total wins! Our first two tournaments had 38 players each. Help us put this one over the top!
Details: Seeding in the first round is random. All rounds after that the seeding is Swiss pairing (players will be paired with players who have similar points totals). Games will be assigned using the balanced method, meaning every effort is made to put you on different games 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 possibly 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 of the games will be new this year. We expect somewhere between 30-45 games in the tourney! If anyone would like to volunteer a pin for the tourney please contact Mike Gray at email@example.com or 205-563-3784.
