    Today on the pinball calendar, all eyes turn to the Gold Coast, as The Park at Coomera hosts the Big Bash Target Matchplay event.

    Qualifying consists of a number of Group Matchplay rounds until a number of players reach a Target point score. Those finalists will continue in a further Group Matchplay format to determine the 2021 Big Bash Tournament winner.

    There's still heaps of space available for players to join in.

    The action kicks off from 10.30am and costs $30 to enter. Doors will open from 10am.

    Matchplay scoring link for today - https://matchplay.live/w10dn

    Please note that Westfield does charge for parking after 2-4 hours, time depending on whether you are a registered user of the Westfield app. Those heading from Brisbane to the Gold Coast can catch the Gold Coast train directly to Coomera station, which is a short walk across the road from the shopping centre.
    If I'm correctly interpreting rumours - there might be some twitch feed of this event (Dr John's channel)?

      I am not aware of this, but wouldn't rule it out.

      • I hope it does get streamed, such a perfect opportunity to promote the event and Masters play for those locked down interstate.

        • Just wondering if Pincadia and Pinball Haus and Netherworld locations are open normally during the BPAC event for heavy in between play practise, and anything special like after hours and overnight play capabilities etc.
          The Brisban-ites have gotten a lot of live play practice over the last 6 days for the Masters lucky them! lol.

            Fingers crossed Netherworld and other places will be open for general play on their pins from Friday. That will all depend on if the restrictions are lifted or not.

                  • Thursday. Day 7. BPAC 2021. 2 events. We are back at BrewDog @ Murarrie.

                    The 'Warm-Up' event qualifying opens today from 4.30pm over at BrewDog. How does it work?

                    Play any 15 games from a bank of around 20-25 machines. Must play a minimum of 10 different machines, and can't play any machines more than twice. What games you play is entirely up to you.

                    Players will need to self-queue using the Matchplay program. The link for the Warm Up event is here: https://matchplay.live/700ey

                    You have today and tomorrow to get your 15 games in. Today: 4.30pm-11pm. Tomorrow 10am-6pm. Open to anyone and everyone, plenty of spots still available. $40 entry for those that haven't already pre-paid.

                    Our Main Event for today is the 3-Strikes format, kicking off at 6.30pm. This is a traditional Strikes format, where players are drawn into groups of 3 or 4 on a machine at random. The 3rd & 4th place players in the match receive a Strike. You get to keep playing in the tournament until you have received 3 Strikes.

                    Again, plenty of spots available in this event. $20 entry if you haven't already pre-paid.

                    Catch you at BrewDog later today!

                              • Yes, that is the confirmed machine list for the Brisbane Masters this weekend. Was up until 4am this morning entering them all into machine banks. That was fun
