Doors open at 2pm. There will be a $20 flat entry. Unlimited qualifying from 2pm-6pm on a bank of five. 1st place on each game will receive 100pts, 2nd 90pts 3rd 85, 4th 84, 5th 83, etc. Your top four games will count towards your rank.Top 8 will advance to finals. Finals will consist of three sets of four player games, wherein 1st place will get 4pts, 2nd 2pts, 3rd 1pt, 4th 0pts. Two players will be eliminated after each set, and then there will be another round of 4P games with the last four. A one game tie breaker will be used if needed.

Half of the proceeds coming into the tournament will go to Project Pinball, and the other half will be paid out to the top three. There will be some prizes awarded, including a bar tab, project pinball shirts, translites, bracelets, other pinball swag, etc. The games in the tournament will be set to free play.

If it sounds complicated, trust me, once I explain everything in person you will understand. We will be using Karl's software, so you will be able to track your performance and aim to improve scores where needed.

A few concerns were expressed, so I have decided to take the entry down to $20 (the normal price attending a TBPL meetup), and having the pot pay 50% out to the top three, with the other 50% going to Project Pinball. Sorry for the late change, and I hope to see a lot of you guys out. See you tomorrow!

Fantastic tournament. Thanks to Patrick for running it and Robert for hosting it at the Lowry Parcade. Project pinball is a great charity and it was good to see Dan Spolar himself who showed up for the tournament.
Congratulations to Jason Werdrick who won the tournament.

I had a great time also, Big thanks to Owl for setting this up and supporting a great charity. The venue exceeded all expectations and was very festive. If your in the area check Lowry Parcade out, it has something for everyone.

Thanks to Robert for providing food and prizes. And congratulations to Jason for coming in and ramping up the competition. Nice run for Denise and Jim Beam coming in under the cut to put up a impressive run in the finals. Can't wait for the next one!

Good job everyone!

Also, I think Jim Beam answered Scott's question ;)
