Brisbane Pinball Club


Recommended Posts

Next on the BPAC Showcase pinball calendar is the fortnightly Brisbane Pinball Club meet at Netherworld tonight.

 

Event times are different from the usual Tuesday night meet. Qualifying will be open from 2pm, with qualifying games to be wrapped up by 10pm. Top 16 finals will follow shortly after.

 

Please keep in mind with your qualifying that there will be a larger number of players in attendance than usual PLUS the bar will very likely be busier than normal due to the public holiday in Brisbane tomorrow.

 

$15 entry for all (except BPAC Zipper Pass holders).

 

We will also need plenty of extra assistance with scoring, so if you can help through the event, please let me know.

Spent a fair bit of time trying to look at possible tweaks to the finals format in 2020.

The only change will be that finals will be being run on Matchplay. This will change the way matches are put together throughout the rounds. Format still remains the same.

Just one more sleep until the final BPC meet of the year. It's a BPC Christmas party at Netherworld to finish off the year.

We will kick off at 7pm with a social Stall Ball 3-strike event, along with some end of year awards. Just $10 entry and everyone is welcome to join.

 

STALL BALL STRIKES - HOW DOES IT WORK?

All players wishing to play register by 7pm. Players will be sorted into groups of 4 and the object of the game is to 'stall' the ball in a scoop or kickout hole. Once you 'stall' the ball, you hop off the machine, while the next player takes over. You are eliminated from your match if you lose or tilt the ball in play.

 

The first 2 players to lose the ball in play will assume a strike. You are eliminated from the event once you have received 3 strikes.

 

All extra little bits of info, such as how to determine the machines, order of play, what constitutes a stall, etc. will be revealed tomorrow night.

 

BPC AWARDS:

Who will win the annual BPC End Of Year awards? What will be available to win?

Some of the categories include Club MVP, Most Improved Player, Best Female Player, Best Dressed in Christmas Theme and more!

 

Come along tomorrow night to check it out!

 

Oh yeah, don't forget to dress up!!

There were also a number of thank yous that need to be mentioned once again:

 

* Scorers - Jared Morgan, Aaron Lambert, Scott Piper, Thibaut Allender, Nicolas Noben, Jimmy Nails, Joe Wade (and I'm sure others that I've forgotten too). You guys have helped the BPC events run so smoothly every fortnight, and couldn't have done it without you. Thank you.

* Thibaut - Thank you for collating and providing all the data from each BPC meet. This helped greatly when it came to deciding on the awards.

* Netherworld Tech staff - Hugh Dickson & David James. The machines at Netherworld cop an absolute beating every week, and these 2 do a magnificent job in getting them ready each fortnight for us. Legends!!

* Benjamin and all of the Netherworld crew - What a wonderful venue to run these events in each fortnight. One of the best crews on the entire planet, and nothing is ever too much trouble. We cannot thank you guys enough for what you do for us.

* Nicolas Noben - thank you for all of your assistance through the year. The feedback, the scoring, the chats, and everything else in between. Your passion and competitive nature for the sport is second-to-none and helped us get to where we are today. Thank you.

* Joe Wade - the BPC right-hand man. Thank you for always being there, and being such a great welcoming and friendly face every meet. Thank you for providing such great guidance for the new players, and for taking such a huge load off my shoulders. I cannot put into words the level of appreciation I, and I'm sure the BPC as a whole, have for everything you do for the club.

* Jimmy Nails - THE face of pinball in Brisbane. What a year it has been mate. I am proud of where we have got this sport to, and eagerly await to see how much further we can go. Thank you for all that you do for us, the donation of the prizes all through the year, for basically giving up half the venue for us each fortnight, for donating the many prizes, for being the most supportive operator going around. Nothing is ever too much trouble, EVER. What a bloody legend!

* The players!!!!! An average of 45 players per meet - what an awesome year. Thank you each and every single one of you for your support once again. It is great to see so many people coming along each week and sharing the same passion for the great game of pinball. Bring on 2020!!

 

Thank you everyone for a fantastic 2019 of pinball. It has been a blast. I know I haven't always the best person to get along with at times and I don't always get it right, but I am truly thankful to be a part of such a great community. We sometimes take it too seriously, we are passionate, we are competitive, but overall we ENJOY what we do, and that is what matters the most.

 

Merry Christmas to everyone in the BPC and in all of the pinball community. Please stay safe and enjoy the break and have a Happy New Year. Can't wait to see what 2020 has in store.

 

Thank you to Jared Morgan for the providing the pics from last night.

 

CHEERS!!! :cheers:

With today's announcement from the IFPA that events as from today onwards will not attract WPPR points for the foreseeable future, I will be regretfully cancelling tonight's BPC meet at Netherworld.

 

The venue will still be open however, so please continue to support Netherworld where possible, and all of our wonderful venues that support our amazing community, all while upholding and maintaining the most stringent of general hygienic practices.

 

Please stay safe out there and an be sure to keep an eye out on updates as they come to hand in this ever changing world.

BRISBANE PINBALL CLUB EVENTS ARE BACK THIS MONDAY NIGHT!! Check out all the details below.

 

** It is important you read all the details before considering attending. Please note that the event is a pre-purchase event only. While we will be following the regular BPC event format, COVID protocols are still in place, and therefore limits on numbers and pre-purchased tickets will apply. No walk-ins permitted.**

 

The Netherworld is stoked to return from the depths of isolation to host our first pinball comp since before the world turned upside down.

 

Throughout July, we'll be hosting Brisbane Pinball Club on Monday nights when we would normally be closed.

 

We'll be taking the utmost care to keep social distancing and heavy sanitisation in place throughout the evening, in line with current Queensland requirements.

 

The night will be limited to 48 people and will use the normal Brisbane Pinball Club format. You'll qualify over 10 different games with the top 16 going into finals following.

 

The doors and the bar will be open from 4pm but please keep in mind that the kitchen will be closed during the evening, though players are more than welcome to BYO food or get it delivered to the bar!

 

Players will be asked to use their best judgement in keeping a safe distance from each other and will be required to use hand sanitiser before touching a machine each and every time.

 

Tickets for the following weeks will go on sale the Tuesday after each Monday from midday.

 

The $25 ticket price includes competition entry and your first drink! Arrive anytime between 4pm and 7pm to compete. Grab your ticket via https://events.humanitix.com/brisbanepinballclubjuly6th
