      Looks like 9 games of Pingolf and 3 games of scores ..... each game will be ranked from 1st to last, giving 12 Total ranked scores.

      Top 10 or top 14 go into a finals knockout playoff.

      Correction ..... the total score from the 9 games of Pingolf will be ranked

      3 scoring Games will be ranked

      Giving a total of 4 ranking scores , not 12

      Ok

      Some update info,

      first dont forget, this is on tomorrow, Saturday 24th August

      There are 10 comp games on freeplay 7 for pin golf and 3 for scores

      also a side comp on Family Guy, $2 a 5 ball game ..... highest score on the day wins half the cashbox. + 2 more pins with maybe a closest to score mini comp.

      Trophies and cash prizes for the main pinball comp, and for the putting comp is a translite + cash prize

      Sausage sizzle and drinks available at $2 ea for a few hrs

      Unlimited mini golf is included in the entry fee of $25

      Also a question was asked as far as rankings go ....... all participants in the pinball comp will be ranked from the qualifying rounds .... the Finals will then be top 14 playoff to determine the top 14 ranking.

      Had a great time yesterday. Played many machines I had never played before and enjoyed them all. Had a hell of a game on Spy Hunter until the game decided I'd had enough and switched over to the next player mid-ball!

      Congrats to Edy, Scotty and David. It seems I'm cursed to never do better than 4th place (3 times now!), but considering my qualification debacle I'm certainly not complaining!

      A big thanks to Edy for organising. So much effort goes into these things and without had working people like Edy the pinball scene would be much worse off.
