  4. Hey team. Please read the message below from the Brewdog team with some housekeeping notes. The team at Brewdog are incredibly generous hosts and any reports of rude behaviour or breaking of the guidelines below will result in immediate removal from the venue and any following events. Be kind. Play well. Have fun. -------------- It’s BPAC time! We’re so excited to be your hosts over the 10 days of BPAC and just wanted to communicate some housekeeping information with you all to make sure everything runs smoothly. Food Ordering We’ll have a kitchen out the back serving pizzas and burgers throughout the 10 days to make ordering food easy. If you decide to order food from the main restaurant, there will be an allocated ‘food drop’ table for BPAC participants in the main bar. You can collect your meal once it has been delivered to that table, and bring it back out to the BPAC space. However, if you would instead like to sit in the restaurant to eat your meal, please speak to the hosts at the front desk to reserve a table, especially during our peak restaurant service times. Smoking Area This year we’ve added a dedicated smoking area for BPAC participants. Please note all smoking/vaping is limited to either this area, or to the venue’s main smoking area. Bar/Kitchen Opening Times We’ll try and keep the BPAC bar and BPAC kitchen open for you all as much as we can throughout the 10 days. In the event of either of these closing early we’ll announce it over the PA before doing so. Parking You’re welcome to use the venue’s customer car park or street parking, but please refrain from parking in the staff parking area unless authorised by Jimmy or Venue staff. Staff Only Areas We’re so excited to have you all at BrewDog, but please remember we’re a licensed venue. We ask that BPAC participants please refrain from venturing into BrewDog staff only areas, or past the pallet fence. Coffees If your comp starts before the venue opens on any day, please be mindful that coffees/teas etc may not be available straight away, depending on our staff levels as we set up each morning. Once we give the all clear they can be ordered from the main bar (near the coffee machine). See you all on Friday!!!!! Love from Team Brewdog xx

Event Title: Pin-Bowling at Netherworld Event Author: Jimmy Nails Calendar: Community Calendar Event Date: 20/08/22 09:00 AM to 21/08/22 01:00 PM 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. Finals Round -top 16 players to be split into 4 groups as follows: 1, 8, 9, 16 2, 7, 10, 15 3, 6, 11, 14 4, 5, 12, 13 - each group to play 3 randomly chosen pin-bowling frames using pin-bowling scoring - highest seed chooses playing position first, second seed second etc - on subsequent games the person with the lowest pin score from the previous game chooses playing position first, then second lowest score etc - two players with the highest pin-bowling scores in each group advance, 3 rounds in total. 16-8-4 - points do not carry over - ties for placings will be determined by a single pin-bowling frame playoff - grand final will be a best of 5 frames Pin-Bowling at Netherworld
