      Adelaide Group Matchplay Easter Tournament

      GENERAL INFORMATION:

      Location - 11 Stonewell Common, Northgate

      1. Registration and warm up 4:00-4.30 sharp.

      2. Information and questions from players 4.30-4.40.

      3. Tournament: 4.40-9.30.

      4. We are running a group match play tournament using matchplay events.

      5. There will probably be about 12 machines in use on the night.

      6. Players will be grouped in 4. There will be 4 separate rounds of 3 matches. This means every player will play 12 matches in total minimum.

      8. In each round the group will play a single game on three different machines and allocated points according to their finishing position: 7/5/3/1 for 4 player groups and 7/4/1 for 3 players groups if necessary. This is the IFPA system of scoring.

      9. For the first round, grouping will be based on IFPA rankings.

      10. PLEASE NOTE: After the first round we will use the computer to balance the groups so that players can possibly play each other for the 2nd to 4th rounds.

      11. We are doing this because the tournament does not require pre-registration.

      12. At the close of the 4th round, the highest points score will be allocated seeeding for the final to ultimately declare a tournament winner.

      13. Ties will be broken by the number of first place finishes, then by the number of second place finishes and if necessary a single game play-off.

      14. ENTRY FEE: $0 for the whole night.

      15. On the night players should have their IFPA # ready, to save time.

      Many thanks to Julien for hosting another awesome event.
      Thanks also to @mcaussie for his work as TD, plus notching up his second career tourney win!

      Julien's pinball events are probably the closest you will get in SA to an IFPA tourney that has a social meet feel.
      This is evidenced by the event attracting @Darksoul & @judgeboz who haven't played in an IFPA tourney since 2012!!
      On a personal note it was great to finally meet Brad, who was very welcoming when I first joined Aussie Arcade.

      To all those who attended, thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

      Cheers
