          Tournament fee: $30 per person

          This will be a Herb Qualifying event.​

          - Players will play a total of 15 games from a bank of around 20-25 different machines, with all scores to count towards qualifying score.​
          - Players choose any of the games to play, and no machine may be played more than once.
          - Players must notify a scoring official and nominate their machine before starting a game, otherwise they will end up with a score of zero for that game.
          - All games are to be played as single player only.​
          - The linear points scoring system for each machine will be used (100,99,98...etc).
          - The Top 16 players will advance to a Head to Head Strikes final.​
          - Ties for any placings in the Top 16 (except 16th place) will be broken by the player with the highest individual game points score (ie. 100 points).​
          - Ties for 16th place will be broken by a single game playoff on a machine to be drawn at random.​

          - Finals will kick off at 9pm Friday 24th May.​
          - Top 16 players will be allocated 'lives' according to their qualifying position as follows:​
          1st-2nd - 5 lives​
          3rd-6th - 4 lives​
          7th-10th - 3 lives​
          11th-16th - 2 lives​

          Qualifying: Saturday 25th May from 10am
          Finals: Sunday 26th May from 10am

          Tournament fee: $50

          This a Group Matchplay Format

          * All qualifiers will be placed into groups of 4 chosen at random (4 player games)
          * Each group will be assigned 3 games at random and will be using the PAPA points system (4/2/1/0) for each game.

          * There will be a total of 5 qualifying rounds (15 games per player). After each round, new groupings will be selected, according to points earned in the tournament to date
          * Second & subsequent rounds will be based on Swiss format (Players will be paired against players with the same win-loss record. No attempts will be made to pair players against previously unfaced opponents (adjacent pairing is used)).

          * All games will be played as a 4-player game (unless machine is unable to allow it and/or notified otherwise by a Tournament Director).
          * Matchplay software will allocate the games and order for each match. Ties for any placings in the Top 16 will be determined by the number of 1st place finishes, then by 2nd place finishes, then by a single game playoff (if required).

          * Finals will be played via a 4-player group elimination bracket. Each round will be contested as a 3 game series, using the PAPA points system (4/2/1/0).
          * Matchplay will allocate machine choices for all matches throughout the finals.
          * Groups will be determined using the Slaughter method. In all instances, the Top 2 players in each group will advance to the next round. A single game playoff on a machine allocated by Matchplay will be used to break any ties.

          Quarter Finals:
          * 16 players in 4 groups of 4, using 'Slaughter' method.
          * Top 2 players in each group on points will advance to the Semi finals. A single game playoff will be used to break ties, on a machine to be allocated by the Matchplay software.

          Semi Finals:
          * 8 players in 2 groups of 4, again using 'Slaughter' method.
          * Top 2 players in each group on points will advance to the Grand Final. A single game playoff will be used to break ties, on a machine to be allocated by the Matchplay software.

          Grand Final:
          * The 4 remaining players will play a final 3-game series, with the same points allocation as above, to determine the tournament winner.

          There will be loads of cash & prizes up for grabs for the Cooly Classic, including trophies for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place, among others.

                Nice updated schedule Lambo. Good to see the Frenzy sneaking in there.

                Please put me down for:

                Cooly Classic
                3 Strikes
                Flip Frenzy


                  In for all (besides the ladies event), and happy to help with scoring.

                      I'm confused how after a few suggestions last year were made regarding the timing of the women's comp that it has been made in what seems to be a more difficult time for them to compete in both. So how will both competitions work with both on at the same time, and what steps will be taken to ensure they both do work?

                      Anyway, count me in for the Classic and Frenzy. Will see accommodation costs for the rest.

                        NOT HAVING A WINGE
                        MAYBE I AM
                        I thought that I had already replied to say I am in?
                        Is there another bloody thread?
                        Have booked accommodation elsewhere as the quoted price worked out at $130 per sleep
                        Where did I reply last time?
                        This forum can be very confusing at times.
                        Either way I am in for all events and will wear a dress if I can play with the girls? lol


                          Please count in me for the lot.

                          May the pinballs tumble in your direction!


                            Clothes just like colours, do not indicate gender. Pretty accepting group though I reckon so if you want to wear a dress for comfort I reckon you should feel free to do so.


                              Updated info in the first post of this thread, including a link to all format information. 3 strikes and Women's comp info coming soon.
