Thank you to all who assisted with scoring tonight.  With 43 players in attendance tonight, the extra scorers came in very handy 🙂

Our next official BPC meet is on Tuesday 2nd November, however don't forget that we will be hosting a Group Matchplay next Tuesday night from 6.30pm.  Tickets must be pre-purchased via Eventbrite (see link below), as we have to run a cap of 40 players max.

Our BPC Christmas Party takes place from 7pm this Tuesday evening (14th Dec) at Netherworld.

We'll kick off with a Group Stall Ball Strikes mini comp, then hand out some awards and see where the night goes from there.

One of the major awards to be given out again this year is the Rob Burnes' Memorial Player's Player award. This is a 'fan vote' award given to the Player who is chosen/voted as the 'All-Rounder' of the Club. The one who is always there helping out, assisting the newcomers, leads by example and who always does it with a smile on their face.

You can vote for your Player's Player by clicking on the link to this survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8NMFK3D

Free entry and free drink for all players this Tuesday night

A massive shout out needs to go to Jimmy Nails & co at Netherworld for once again providing us with a wonderful venue every fortnight, and of course to our players who keep turning up. The pinball community is one of, if not the best communities going around, and I am proud to be a part of and gotten to know you all over these years.

A Merry Christmas goes out to each and every single one of you. I hope everyone gets to enjoy their holidays and look forward to seeing everyone again in the New Year. Please stay safe out there and we'll see you back for our first meet on Tuesday 4th January.

Happy New Year everyone! Hope everyone has had a great break.

 

We are back for our first BPC meet for 2022 tomorrow night (4th Jan) at Netherworld.

 

Slightly different format for this one folks:

 

Qualifying:

Still 10 games, however qualifying times have been cut back to 4pm-8.30pm. No new games can start after 8.30pm. Time may be extended at the discretion of the TD.,

 

Finals:

Top 8 will advance to Main finals and will be played as a simultaneous Group Matchplay.

9th-16th will qualify for a B Division final, and will be played as a Group Matchplay elimination.

 

Top 8 finalists PLUS winner & runner-up of B Division finals will win cash.

 

$15 entry, cash payments only on arrival.

 

Don't forget as per current QLD Gov guidelines, proof of vaccination must be shown on arrival to the venue, and masks must be worn at all times, except when sitting to eat and/or drink.

How did you think the new finals format went?  Being the first one, there were some minor teething problems, however we're doing the next 2 meets with that format, so hopefully we will get used it by then 🙂  Let me know what you thought.

Next BPC meet willl be on from 4pm on Tuesday 18th January.  See you there!

Results from last night's BPC meet:

 

That was a late finish tonight! Latest finish since we started using this format, and it wasn't due to machine breakdowns or player delays.... Group 2's Semi Final went for just over one hour, with massive games on Bally Game Show, Godzilla and Rick & Morty to a degree. Group 1 finished their Semi Final + a 2-player tie-breaker before Group 2 had even started Ball 3!

To top it off, Group 2 then had a 3-way tie for 2nd place, so we had to have one more game to determine the last finalist - which was randomly drawn out to be a near 40-minute game on Godzilla.

Anyway, after some magical games by all of the finalists, we got there in the end. Congratulations to Chris on not only qualifying in first spot, but for also taking out the win once again.

 

Top 8 final placings:

1st - Chris Jennings
2nd - Zack Foster
3rd - Paul Ehrich
4th - Paul Chamberlin
5th - Philip Dudley
6th - Scott Piper
7th - Jimmy Nails
8th - Rob Milla

 

B division final winners:

1st - Adam Newton
2nd - Jared Morgan

 

High scores during qualifying:

Batman '66 (Prem) - 769,850,140 - Philip Dudley
Black Knight: SOR (Pro) - 95,852,900 - Pierakim Lambda
Godzilla (Prem) - 357,702,470 - Chris Jennings
Rick & Morty - 27,488,906 - Zack Foster
Seawitch (5-ball) - 1,566,090 - Philip Dudley
Space Invaders (3-ball) - 800,200 - Jimmy Nails
The Bally Game Show - 18,524,920 - Scott Piper
The Mandalorian (Prem) - 203,301,920 - Jimmy Nails
