Monongahfest 2015 Pinball Tournament
Saturday, August 15, 2015

Monongah Volunteer Fire Department Building
134 Bridge Street, Monongah, WV

Doors open at 9:00am. Qualifying starts at 9:30am. Qualifying ends immediately at 3:00pm. Any games started prior to 3:00pm will be allowed to finish.

Scoring will be done in best game format in order to determine seeding for Finals.

Best game format: Players can play games as much as they want during the qualifying time period. Only a player's best score on each machine will be counted. You will be ranked based on your best scores from all of the games.

The cost to enter the tournament will be $15, which will allow for unlimited entries.
At the end of qualifying, the Top 16 players will make the Finals. Should there happen to NOT be 16 total players, the Top 8 will make the Finals.

Finals will consist of a head-to-head “Best Of Five Games” format, with the alignment for the pairings as follows: 1-16, 2-15, 3-14, 4-13, 5-12, 6-11, 7-10, 8-9 (for 16 Finalists) or 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5 (for 8 Finalists). Highest seed for each pairing will choose machine or order with other player selecting the remaining choice. This will hold true throughout Finals. Player selecting machine may not select same machine two rounds in a row.

100% of entry fee monies will be paid out to Top Finishers in the following order:
1st Place: 50%, 2nd Place: 25%, 3rd Place: 10%, 4th Place: 5%

Payouts will be determined by participation. All entry fees will be paid out in cash and prizes. 
Top qualifier will receive 10% of the prize pool. Top 4 Finalists will split the remaining prize pool at the following percentages.
1st place - 50% 2nd place - 25% 3rd place - 15% 4th place - 10%

This is an IFPA sanctioned event.

Good luck!

Despite being in WV, it's too far for me to get out that early. I'd be sleeping by the time lunch came around.

No problem there, Coyote! We usually do 4-5 tournaments a year, so maybe you can make it out to one of them. Monongahfest is a GREAT event, though. Having lived five miles from it for years, I never knew exactly what it was until last year: a GREAT small town celebration with TONS of good food, fun and festivities. So happy that we get to go back with a tournament again this year. Great facility and the Monongah VFD building and people are FIRST CLASS!

We will not let you sleep Coyote, and you will get a chance to meet some local pinheads in the process. You should be here. =D

I am sure someone will put you up or we can split a hotel.
