    Join us in the Netherworld for 10 glorious frames of pinball, as we play Pin Bowling! At your own pace, you'll play 10 frames/games of pinball - a new game for every frame. Each game will have a 10 pin target - get it in your first ball, you get a strike. Get it in your second, you pick up a spare. Finish the game with less than that and you'll score between 1 to 9 pins depending on your result. Final scoring works the same as bowling. Qualifying happens on Saturday the 20th of August fom 9am to 4pm, with the top 16 players proceeding to the finals at 9am the following day. Prizes awarded to the top 3. Ticket details coming soon -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tournament Name: Pin Bowling at Netherworld Tournament Location: Netherworld - 186 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley QLD 4006 Tournament Date: 20th and 21st of August 2022 Tournament Time: Sat - 9am to 4pm & Sun 9am to 1pm Format Details: Pin Bowling qualifying and 4 player matchplay finals Quick Overview 10 bowling frames to be played anytime between 9am and 4pm on Saturday 14th of September Scores must be verified by approved scorer: James Angliss David James Benjamin Nichols Top 16 to advance to finals on Sunday 9am to 1pm Finals 4 player matchplay 3 game rounds pin-bowling scoring top 2 advance from each group 16-8-4 1. Qualifying Rounds - players will complete 10 pin-bowling frames across 10 machines - although the player can complete the frames in any order, the scores will be entered in order using bowling calculations so any sequential strikes and spares will accumulate and increase scores - in pin bowling you are aiming for a score which converts to pins knocked down per ball bowled - there will be a chart on each game to convert your pin score to the number of pins - an example of how a frame works is: - the first ball on the pinball game is ball 1 of bowling and your only chance to score a strike - duckpin bowling scoring is used, balls 2 and 3 determine your second and third ball in the bowling alley - reach the ten pin target in ball one, score a strike (strike reward - add the score from next 2 balls to frame) - finish with the 10 pin score after balls 2, score a spare (spare reward - add the score from next ball to frame) - finishing the 10 pin score with your 3rd ball gives no reward - if you have less than 10 pins after 3 balls, you score that number - players must write down the pins scored from each ball as they go - here is an example using Game of Thrones: 15 M = 1 pin 30 M = 2 pins 45 M = 3 pins 60 M = 4 pins 75 M = 5 pins 90 M = 6 pins 120 M = 7 pins 150 M = 8 pins 180 M = 9 pins 250 M = 10 pins 2.
