      Introducing the 2017 QLD STATE PINBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
      This event is being held in conjunction with the Brisbane, Netherworld, Saccharomyces, Ipswich and Gold Coast Pinball Clubs

      2017 is shaping up to be a massive year in pinball, especially in the 'sunshine state'. We are really pumped and excited to be able to bring this event to life and crown the next QLD STATE PINBALL CHAMPION.

      The GRAND PRIZE:
      * The winner will win FREE ENTRY into the 2018 ACS Tournament (if eligible) and essentially be QLD's representative at the event.
      * The prize also includes Airfares & Accommodation for up to 2 nights.
      * If the player is ineligible or unable to attend the 2018 ACS, a suitable and equivalent prize will be awarded.

      The only way to get involved in the QLD STATE PINBALL CHAMPIONSHIP is to finish in the Top 3 in any of the above club's monthly IFPA meets during JANUARY-NOVEMBER 2017 including:
      * Brisbane Pinball Club Monthly Tournament (usually held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month)
      * Netherworld Flip Frenzy (usually held on the 1st Saturday of every month)
      * Netherworld Head-to-Head Smackdown (usually held on the 3rd Saturday of every 2nd month)
      * SBC (Saccharomyces) Pinball Tournaments (usually held on the 2nd Sunday of every month)
      * Flipswitch (Ipswich) Monthly Tournaments (usually held on the last Saturday of every month)
      * Gold Coast Pinball Club Monthly Tournaments (usually held on the first Wednesday of every month)
      * Gold Balls League (January-April only)
      * Pinball Grotto Matchplay Series (August-November only)
      There are approximately 68 events for players to participate in at this stage, so there is plenty of opportunity for players to qualify for the big dance! Qualifying by players from other states is also welcome!

      The FINAL for the 2017 QLD STATE PINBALL CHAMPIONSHIP will take place on Sunday 10th December from 9.30am at the HARD ROCK CAFE, SURFERS PARADISE.
      We have been able to secure a great location on the balcony of the venue, due to the great partnership between Timezone Surfers Paradise and Hard Rock Cafe.
      Hopefully this will be an event that will continue on year after year.

      There will be no cost for the players that make the final. This tournament is being supported through the clubs and players that attend each of the club meets throughout 2017.

      There is also plans to run a few social side comps on finals day for any spectators and others possibly interested in getting involved with competitive pinball.

      FINALS QUALIFYING:
      * All qualifiers will be placed into groups of 4*chosen at random*(4 player games)*
      * Each group will be assigned 3 games at random. Each game has the same points ... 7 for 1st, 5 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 1 for 4th*

      * 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
      * Groupings are determined from the scoring in each round thereafter as follows: 1,2,3,4 .... 5,6,7,8 .... 9,10,11,12 .... 13,14,15,16 .... 17,18,19,20 .... 21,22,23,24 .... 25,26,27,28 .... 29,30,31,32 .... and so on, until all players have been grouped.

      * All games will be played as a 4-player game (unless machine is unable to allow it).
      * Matchplay software will allocate the games and order for each match.

      * The top*8 players will advance to the Finals*once completed.* Ties for 8th place will*be broken by a single*head-to-head game*on a machine chosen at random.*

      FINAL:
      * Finals matches will be contested as Best-of-5, single elimination head-to-head matches.
      * Highest seed will always play lowest seed in matches, and so on, until all players have been paired up.
      * Highest seed has either choice of machine or play order.* Machine chosen will remain the same for all 5 games (if required), while play order alternates between games.
      * The winner will be the last remaining player.

      The winner of the QLD State Pinball Championship will win the Grand Prize of Free Entry into the 2018 ACS Tournament wherever it is held (if eligible), plus Airfares & Accommodation for up to 2 nights (extra nights stay are to be paid for by the prize winner).* If the prize winner is ineligible, or is unable to attend the ACS Tournament, a suitable and equivalent prize will be awarded. There will also be other cash and/or prizes for 2nd & 3rd place.

      Holy moly, I'm blown away. Seems like I'll be playing pinball 24x7 this year…

      Is it possible to play too much pinball? (I know, yes, really know deep in my heart, that I can stop anytime I like…)

      When this event was first announced I thought we were going to be driving from venue to venue all day playing pins. Lol.

      No @Michi it is not possible to play too much pinball. Perish the thought. I looked at the IFPA calender, and it is a very crowded year, as far as Qld pinball tournaments go. Love it!!

      Right

      The worst part of it is that I'll have to miss some of the massive number of events. The way it looks, you could play something like 5 or more tournaments a month!

      Sigh… I need to retire, so I can play more pinball. Problem is that, if I retire, I won't be able to afford playing pinball. Life is so cruel…

      Michi.

      Any chance of including the monthly Coolangatta event as well now they have IFPA approval?

      After a quick discussion with @chopchop , the Gold Balls league is now on board with the QLD Championship at the end of the year. While the qualifying period was slated for February-November, we will make an exception to this, as the first Gold Balls meet is on THIS SUNDAY. Therefore, the players who finish in the Top 3 will be the first players to qualify for the QLD STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.

      This also means that players will now have an extra 4 chances to qualify for the Championship.

      Thank you to Dr. John for getting involved with the tournament this weekend and look forward to catching up with you this Sunday.
