  • KIWI PINCADE (PART 12) New Zealand 7TH-10TH MARCH 2019

    Hi everyone

    This is your personal invitation to attend the next Kiwi Pincade! For newbies, Pincade is held sequentially at various locations throughout New Zealand over four days. This year's cities will be Christchurch and Auckland. Although fine tuning to the timetable will come over the next few months, these things are set in concrete:

    1. Starts in Christchurch at 1pm Thursday 7th March 2019 at a commercial location where festivities and a tournament (Wellington Pincade IFPA sanctioned competition) will be held beginning in the early evening. Location is locked in at Arcadia.

    2. Breakfast and pinball at a Christchurch host's home from 9am Friday 8th March until 1pm.

    3. Fly to Auckland (about one hour's flight time) followed by one gamesroom that afternoon/night. Auckland Pincade IFPA sanctioned competition.

    4. Breakfast at the next gamesroom beginning at 9am Saturday 9th March followed by two or three other gamesrooms.

    5. All day Sunday at Pukekohe where three huge tournaments will be held. These are the 4th World System 11 Championships, Pincade Classics and also a Belles and Chimes event. We expect around 100 participants for each of the main tournaments so there will be lots of IFPA points if you play well. Both tournaments will be run concurrently with set playoff times for each.

    6. I used to arrange transport & accommodation, but unfortunately I can no longer do this, due to sheer numbers. If you can organise accommodation & rental cars for you and your mates, that would be appreciated. A good location to stay in Auckland is around the Greenlane/Newmarket area, as it is pretty central and in the middle of all the event locations, and just off the motorway.

    7. There will be a charge to attend like last year. Bronze, Silver and Gold. This helps pay for venue costs, trophies, lanyards and name tags etc. Prices will be the same as previous year's which is $60 to attend the entire weekend. Some breakfasts will be included in your $60. Probably the best deal for a huge pinball event anywhere! Pincade T shirts, hoodies will be available to order, further details to come. I will not accept any Pincade money until 3rd Jan 2019. There will be a late fee charged from 23rd Feb 2109. Details to follow.

    8. I get deluged by emails so to separate my AA mail from my Pincade mail, please contact me on kiwipincade@gmail.com. Of course, I'm happy to answer any questions posted on this thread (which may help others as well).

    9. Last Pincade was a record year with 160 total attendees including 38 from overseas. I expect more next year.

                        I used to enjoy Mega Meat - Sooo many great memories. Like Yee winning a bet and Furballx had to piggyback him around at a gallop.

                              From memory, I think I won two or three bets so [MENTION=2038]furballx[/MENTION] had to piggyback me around the gamesroom each time. But I eventually lost, then I had to piggyback him. I'm about 70kg and I think Furbs has got to be over 105kg soaking wet. All I can say is that I piggybacked him as far as I could. My back has never been the same since.
