Just a reminder that I will be hosting the “Last Chance - Free Points Grab” pinball tournament on Saturday, December 30, 2017 starting at 10:00 AM in Neenah, WI at my house. I figure this would be a good tournament to wrap up 2017. Additionally, I’ll be hosting the 2017 Wisconsin State Championship Series (SCS) on January 20, 2018, so anyone that may qualify for the WI SCS may want to come to this tournament to get familiar with the game line up.
Cost will be $25 per person and will include refreshments and lunch, payouts, and charity donation. Please send me a private message and I’ll sign you up – I’ll be capping attendance at 40 players and I'm down to less than 10 spots available.
All entry fees left after payouts and dinner/refreshments will be donated to the Salvation Army.
The day will consist of two distinct tournaments.
The first tournament will have everyone playing 10 qualifying games and the scores compiled and ranked. The top half of the field will make playoffs (with byes for top seeds as necessary). Playoffs will be four player groupings playing three games, scoring 7-5-3-1. Top two players advance, bottom two players are eliminated. This will continue until a champion is crowned. For any ties for seeding or in playoffs, a playoff game on an early solid state game chosen by the TD will be played to determine the winner.
After the first tournament is complete, we’ll move into the second tournament which will be a basic three-strikes and you’re out. We’ll have four player groupings (and maybe an occasional 3 player grouping). In a four player grouping, the bottom two scoring players will receive strikes; in a three player grouping, the lowest scoring player will receive a strike. This will continue until only one player is left without 3 strikes.
We’ll probably have a one game side tournament as well that will be announced at the tournament.
As usual, we’ll stick with IFPA for rulings. As for other rules: Please keep any illegal drugs off my property. If you choose to indulge in a spirited beverage, please do so responsibly. Please keep profanity to a dull roar as I do have young kids. The basement does get warm, even in the winter, so dress accordingly.

• 1st place - $50
