Dear Florida Pinball Fans and Fellow Asylum Inmates--

JUST ONE MONTH AWAY-- our April 21st 2nd Annual Pinball Asylum IFPA-Sanctioned Pin-Golf Tournament and FUNDRAISER is just one month away!

AND WE NEED PLAYERS!  For the IFPA to recognize us as a TRUE PIN-MASTERS CIRCUIT event, we need 32 Pro Players minimum!  Right now we only have 23!

SO IF YOU ARE READING THIS, please sign up for Pin-Golf TODAY!           

AND EXACTLY WHAT IS PIN-GOLF YOU ASK? Pin-Golf is popular type of tournament where 18 (or 9) pinball games are utilized, with each designated a “hole” or “pin-hole” with a requisite target score (or par) to be achieved. Once the target score is achieved during play on a machine, the player stops playing, and records the number of the ball he achieved the target on. For example, if you achieve the Target Score on your first ball, you score a 1 on the hole. Lowest score for the round wins.

AMATEUR DIVISION (9-Holes, $30.00) and PROFESSIONAL DIVISION (18-Holes, $50.00, for IFPA Points) are available. Separate trophies for each division. Note: If you've previously played Pro Division in any tourney at The Pinball Asylum, then you are restricted to Pro for this tournament.  Note: VIP Registration ended on 3/10.

Please contact us if you need the RSVP link to sign-up!-- info@pinballasylum.com

ALSO-- Like last year, we will have six (6) "SIDE BET" SPECIAL Machines for PRIZES-- these machines can all be played for high-scores: 2 Games for $5.00, 5 Games for $10.00, or 12 Games for $20.00. These can be PRE-PURCHASED when you register for the tournament.  PRIZES this year will include $50/$100 gift certificates to local eateries, Norman Love Chocolates, gift certificates for pinball parts, pinball memorabilia, Asylum swag-bags, etc.

Doors open at 10:00am, and the first groups will start their rounds at 10:30am. The PRO tournament ends at 6:00pm, and AMATEUR ends at 4:00, with the last rounds sold 45 minutes before ending times. Pro Finals start at 7:00, and AMATEUR at 5:00.

Look forward to seeing you all come out and support The Pinball Asylum!

Best,
David & Matt B. (Tournament Directors)
Matt M. (Head Grounds Keeper & Resident Genius)
Mike (Ranger & Golf Cart Maintenance)
Jeff (Starter & Caddy Wrangler)

There is a slight miscalculation in the points.  I’ve already notified David and he said he will address the issue :)
