This event will be held concurrently with the San Francisco City Champ playoffs at Free Gold Watch in San Francisco, and so you'll have the opportunity to catch some world class play in between your own tournament games. Everyone is welcome to join the fun!
Sunday, December 18th, 2016, 12:00pm.
Registration is open from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. Players may sign up and begin playing the course anytime between noon and 1.
If a player wants to start later than 1pm, they may do so, subject to the following conditions.
Free for players who participated in the City Champ tournament on Saturday. For everyone else, $10. Players will also be responsible for the cost of games played during the tournament.
Objective based pin-golf followed by playoffs.
In groups, participants will play through a 9 hole course, with each hole being a different pinball machine. Every game will have an objective posted (example: destroy two saucers on Attack from Mars), and the player's goal is to accomplish that objective in the fewest balls possible. Each ball played on the machine counts as a stroke, and the players with the fewest strokes after completing the course will advance to finals.
Not sure yet! But we will try to post something closer to the event.
Following the qualifying round, the top 4 qualifiers* will advance to playoffs. Playoff format will be more pin-golf! Finalists will play through a mini-course of 4 holes using pin0golf scoring. At the end of the course, players will be ranked against one another based on how many strokes the course took them to complete.
* If we have more than 40 players, playoffs format will be modified to accommodate at least 10% of participants.
We'll have awards and cash prizes (assuming there are any cash entries) for first through fourth place.
This tournament is open to anyone who wants to play! Players of all skill levels, even total beginners, are encouraged to participate. We're here to have fun.
This tournament is sanctioned by the International Flipper Pinball Association and will award points towards your World Pinball Player Ranking. If you don't have a ranking, you will after you play in the tournament!
No food will be provided at the tournament venue, but players are welcome to bring snacks from home for themselves, or to share. There are many places to grab a bite to eat in the immediate vicinity.
