  • Houseball 2020 #4 , part 2

    Gday Folks, lets try this again. When restrictions got tougher right before the scheduled date for Houseball #4, im sure everyone was as disappointed as i was. We are back to 30 person gatherings at homes again so we are on track for Houseball to continue.

    Dave and Sandy have graciously offered to host again so hopefully we're going ahead this time.

    Date is Saturday October 17th.

    Please reply to this thread to secure your place as circumstances may have changed for some since the original thread.

    Comp details.
    4 hours of qualifying with a 2 p.m start. Finals to be held after dinner. Please get your comp games finished ASAP so you have plenty of time to socialise afterwards.
    Score sheets will be on each machine with attendees names on them.

    We are changing up the format a little in 2020 to keep it interesting. There will still be an 'A' and 'B' Division as per 2019 with equal prizes in both.
    You play 6 games on the nominated machines with your best 5 results going towards your final standing.
    The top 4 placed players will go through to the 'A' division finals . The highest 4 from the second half of the field will go into the 'B' division finals.
    Finals will be on 3 randomly chosen machines with the 7,5,3,1 format of awarding points. Single round and the person with the most points wins. Tiebreakers are decided by the Matchplay software with the highest seed being given the win.

    House rules.
    Please remember that Houseball is a social event, we are not playing for sheep stations. Please show the hosts and their machines the utmost respect as without them this event ceases to be a thing.
    Please remove all rings/bracelets when playing.
    You will be asked to leave if you are found abusing machines/other players.
    Smokers please ensure you leave no butts around the place. The host should be able to tell you where it is ok to smoke.
    And lastly, a bit of friendly banter is encouraged.

    ** Please note ** People will be asked to maintain social distancing and i will endeavour to provide hand sanitiser. If you have a small personal bottle of hand sanitiser it would be great to bring along with you on the day.

    ** If you have any cold/flu symptoms , please don't attend **

    With the 30 person limit on home gatherings we will have a reserves list if we have more interest.

    Food and costs.
    Dinner TBA but most likely pizza. $10 covers food per person.
    $5 to cover the hosts expenses.
    $5 into the prize pool.
    Total $20 for the event.

    Pins for the comp
    Metal Man
    Mach Two 2.0
    IO Moon
    1 other TBA

    Plus there are 10 other machines so plenty to play when not socialising.
