  • [NSW] - Cancelled - Rumble in the west pinball competition

    Hello AAers,

    I am extremely excited to announce the Rumble in the west pinball competition!


    Main pinball competition

    TD: Andrew (Cardini) Ferguson

    Location: 30 Holbeche Rd, Arndell Park NSW


    Saturday 25th April 2020

    10am – 6pm Main tournament qualifying

    Sunday 26th April 2020
    10am Finals.

    Ticketing: There is a small amount of complexity with the ticketing so please bear with me.
    (Note: Food and drink at the event will be sold separately)

    You can buy a normal entry ticket to the event ($60) which does not include your pinball comp entry fees ($30). Or, if you just want to play in the pinball comp you can buy a special pinball comp ticket ($40.00) that does include your entry fee.
    However with the special pinball comp ticket you wont be able to access any other areas or activities at Rumble in the west.

    Ticket types:

    $100.00 (+booking fee) Super Rumble Ticket: Access to all areas and activities including pinball for both days.

    $40.00 (+booking fee) Early bird Single day ticket. Available till March 25th (regular price $60.00). Access to all areas and activities for one day (does not include pinball comp entry fees $30.00).

    $40.00 (+booking fee) Pinball competition ticket. Access to bar/food and comp area for pinball only, comp fees included. This ticket is for pinball competition players and will not grant access to any other area or activity. This ticket grants entry for both days, however if you don't make the finals you won't have access to play any games on the Sunday. You can spectate, or you can purchase an event ticket on the day.

    Tickets available through eventbrite here.

    The tournament will be run during the Rumble in the west event at the 30 Holbeche Rd, Arndell Park NSW.

    Due to increased public concern regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to cancel Rumble in the West (Saturday 25th April and Sunday 26th April) refunds available for all tickets. We are very disappointed to have come to this decision because we have invested a lot of time, effort and money into this event, however we feel at this stage we have no choice.

    As disappointing as this is, the health and well-being of our community comes first. We’d love to reschedule this event later, however things are too uncertain right now to make plans. We will keep you updated and we appreciate the support we have received.

    We will stay active on social media; we love working on pinballs and arcade games so you can expect to see more of what we get upto.
