Pinball tournament als garage May 5th 6th
« on: November 24, 2017, 02:04:23 AM »
starting to plan for a 3rd ancient city rumble at als in deland. details are as follows

may 5th and 6th 2018

als house in deland fl

match play event starting saturday the 5th at 10am, and sunday the 6th starting at 9am

format is as follows-

- 4 player rounds from start based on florida standings, seeded in order. (first group in first round would be 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th ranked in florida playing together. then rest are following same format)

- each round honors will be given to highest seeded player in group to choose game or position, and so on. after that game is complete, the choice moves to the next player that started on initial game. following the same format until 4 games have been played in that round, with a first choice coming from every player in round.

- round scoring is as follows for games played    1st = 4 points, 2nd = 3 points, 3rd = 2 points, 4th = 1 point.    maximum scoring per round is 16 points and minimum is 4.

- in each round the first 3 games played must be from each era. EM, early solid state (84'-94'), and modern/current. (tna counts as early ss)
which means that the last game in grouping could be from any era.

- we will play as many rounds as time will allow until 1pm sunday an then break off into respective finals groupings. finals will be seeded in swiss pairings. example being 1st, 8th, 9th, 16th. this is based on 16 people.

- finals will consist of a minimum of half the field. there are no byes

theres no entry fee for this tournament, however with the ifpa endorsement fee and the utilization of the amenities from al we are setting an entry fee of 10$. we will try and round up some prizes/trophies at the very least.

if you've made it to an ACPR tournament in the past then you know that its a great format that makes for a fun but competitive event for all. we've done our best to bring it to a more centralized location that is accommodation for more attendance, as well as making it more about fun than money. that being said, we would love to have  this become an annual event that fills a spring/summer slot in the schedule that is currently void. any feedback is appreciated!
