Hi everyone , with a busy start to the year we have finally managed to secure our first Houseball for 2023. Thanks Ray for offering to host.
We will be following the same format as previous years but here are the basics.
Qualifying starts at 2p.m and goes for 4 hours so you have plenty of time to get your games in. We like to encourage everyone to try getting their games in early because asthe beer and socialising flows people tend to forget they haven't played all their games and we have to chase them up so we can close off the comp.
You will play a total of 6 games on designated machines, which i or the host will post a list of closer to the day. Sometimes it might be 1 game on 6 different machines or maybe 2 games on one and 4 and others. This will depend on the number of machines hosts have available on the day so we can have a few 'free play' games available to all.
Your best 5 games will go towards your total points for the day.
Finals start at 6p.m or just after dinner.
Top 4 players will be in the 'A' division finals and we also have a 'B' division final for the highest places of the second half of the field.
Points earned at each Houseball go towards the final standings for the year which earn you the perpetual Houseball trophy. Some esteemed names on that list🙂
We ask you to remove rings/bracelets so as to not damage the machines and anyone found abusing the machines will be asked to leave. Remember, without our hosts Houseball cant go on so lets please respect their house and pins.
For smokers there will be a designated area where the host can point you to on the day for smoking. Please clean up after yourself.
We generally limit the number of players to 30 , but this can change at the hosts discretion.
Cost for the day is $20 which covers food, prize money and hosts expenses. Dinner is usually pizza but we change it up sometimes.
