    [NSW] - Southern Hemisphere Pinball Championships 2019 7th-9th June

    Just putting this up to get my arse in gear.

    More details to follow but will follow the same format as the inaugral event in NZ.

    Host: Me

    TDs: Dan and Dave


    Closest accommodation is here: Link still 3.6km from my place though so a car is required. Its cheap and cheerful. The food is good though, and the beer is cold. There is also a shuttle bus that you can call depending on the time.

    If that doesn't suit, you can always stay at the world of entertainment: Mercure Hotel Penrith Panthers | Accommodation Penrith (Penrith Panthers for the non-locals).

    You are also welcome to pitch a tent or park a van up at the barn. Keep in mind that other than a toilet there are no other facilities, so bring lots of deodorant if you choose that option.


    Hopefully we'll have a food man onsite, however don't count on it as he will bail if it rains!

    Otherwise the nearest store bought food is two sets of local shops, one in Mulgoa, one in Wallacia, both about 3-4km from my house.


    There is a bottle-o in both Mulgoa and Wallacia, but don't expect Dan Murphy's pricing! It can be quite steep.

    Drinking on site

    All good, just try to remain respectful of other players and the machines.
