      ACS 2018 Adelaide

      AMD presents The IFPA Australian Championship Series 2017
      Adelaide 9-11 February 2018

      2018 is Adelaide's turn to host the ACS. We plan to put on an amazing event for you!

      AMD, Australia's official Stern pinball distributor, is the major sponsor for the event and is providing $3,000 in prize money for the players.

      Amusement Worx, Adelaide's distributor of Jersey Jack, Planetary Pinball, Stern and American Pinball machines, is a gold sponsor, supplying in kind support via transportation & tech support over 5 days.

      We have found the perfect venue for the ACS right in the heart of the Adelaide CBD. The venue has plenty of room, lots of power, a hipster bar, a funky little restaurant. The proprietor loves pinball so we are getting a crazy cheap rate - The Jade is a Silver sponsor!

      The Jade
      142-160 Flinders St, Adelaide SA 5000
      +61 473 260 048

      1,000's of rooms of accomodation are within walking distance, as are hundreds of restaurants and cafes.

      Food: Phat Buddha Rolls at our venue will be open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11:30am - 2:30pm. Friday. (NB: They donít do breakfast. The Cambodian Cheeseburgers are particularly great!)

      The venue has no issues with people bringing in food for breakfast and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday, they ask that people are courteous and clean up after themselves. The venue opens at 8:30am.

      The Flinders Street Project (276 Flinders St, the Hutt St end) is just down the road and they serve breakfast from 8am on the weekend. There are a hundred restaurants within 1km so plenty of options.

      Parking station round the corner from the venue, flat rate $8 fri after 6pm and all day sat/sun. Thu/Fri early bird in by 9:30am $18. Closes midnight.

      That date sounds good to me Greg. Venue sounds great as well. Could you say the suburb you were thinking of holding it? I have found that Airbnb has been a cheap option for accomodation for trips to Brisbane and Melbourne recently. Ends up being cheaper than a hotel room.

      Does it have air conditioning in there? Could be a scorcher in Adelaide in February

      Not even sure if I will qualify for this year but sounds like you have done a lot of work so far organising this.

      Thanks, Pat. I hope you make the cut, it won't be the same without you

      The suburb is Adelaide, 160 Flinders St https://goo.gl/maps/YQRmSgLxKDu AirBNB and loads of serviced apartments, probably cheap because uni students aren't back yet. Yes, it has aircon.

      One of the possible pinball locations inside, although we'll probably use a bigger location inside that was once a nightclub, it has seating, heaps of power, good aircon

      Looks great and I appreciate all of the effort you and the guys are putting in to host it this year. Great work.

      I won't be competing this year as I've taken the year off chasing points, but I'm 99% sure I'm coming along anyway for the SA hospitality!

      We'd love to have your presence, Mark, there will be 2 tournaments for all comers (probably Fri and Sat nights) in addition to the ACS.

      Any chance of any Pinball Hire tournaments or others being held the same week? Would consider heading over for longer if there is.

      Last year, I floated the idea of holding the ACS a little later, in March. That's because, generally, we don't have the final IFPA rankings until the second or third week of January. Especially for people on the cusp, where they cannot be sure whether they are in our out (depending on points and cancellations by other people), that can make it difficult to find accommodation and flights at a reasonable price.

      So, I'd still suggest, say, the first week in March rather than February.

      Cheers,

      Michi.
      May the pinballs tumble in your direction!

      Changing it to first week in March might interfere with Pincade for people wanting to go to this awesome event
