    Did everyone see this clip that made it on to ABCnews?!

    Watching ABC News SA Saturday 6/10/2018 in iviewhttps://iview.abc.net.au/show/abc-news-sa/series/0/video/NU1806S240S00

    Good interviews by Ted and Greg- and the camera caught me doing one of my backwards karate kicks!

    Ps- I’ll post some of the photos I took with my SLR soon
    That was clearly a warm up kick....saving the real stuff for the tourney!
    For the next tournament we are at together I'm going to bring in some safety cones to keep the hazardous work area clear

    Awesome effort Ray. Nice to see you are wearing your Aussie Arcade T-shirt as well.

    Top placings for the Four Strikes Tournament were:

    1st Robert Macauley (with no strikes)
    2nd Greg Siegele
    3rd Chris Dobell

    Here are a few pics taken during the Group Knockout on Saturday Night...

    Best Game Card finals on Sunday...

    Colin plays Rob on Stellar Wars in a 5th game decider for a place in the semi-final round, won by Rob with just a small margin.

    In the final game for the SA Masters, Greg defeats Rob on Lost World to take the main event first prize.

    For a little something different we had a shot at putting ceramic balls into Whitewater (this became a very nasty Whitewater lol) and Seawitch, making for a slightly faster kind of feel. Everyone seemed to like the way ceramic went in Seawitch. The old Stern made it through the whole weekend with only a couple of minor issues, but a dropped plunger link pin put it out in only the last hour of the finals on Sunday. The two most played games for the Best Game Card qualifying were Seawitch and Stellar Wars, with more than 50 plays each over the six hours (there were 22 arenas to choose from for most of the qualifying period)

    The Seawitch made it back to it's home by Monday night where the link was repaired... a couple of us could not resist spending an evening racking up some plays on the old girl, we made an amateur recording of a few games as we enjoyed a couple of wind down bevvies

    Yep they were put in some time ago. I got an email from Luke yesterday letting me know that the results for all Bowland events are now approved and in the hands of the IFPA... they should be up soon. Currently just the weekday events are appearing in IFPA results.

    Thanks for everything, Ray and everyone at Pirie, it was a huge success and a lot of fun!

    Tip for next time: the convention in the pinball world is to call the big one the “main event”
