Canadian National Pinball Open @ Canada PinCon 2018

Postby MCS » Tue May 01, 2018 12:48 pm

Once again the Canadian National Pinball Open will be held in conjunction with Canada PinCon! Take a break from the show to earn some WPPRs and try your hand at winning some prizes.

Best Game unlimited qualifying will take place on Saturday afternoon with playoffs on Sunday. We'll be doing match play finals to maximize TGP.

Prize for the top "novice" in addition to cash prizes for the finalists.

Details will be posted to the Facebook Event as well as here.

In order for the tournament to be a success, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Specifically, we need games that are solid enough to hold up for six hours of consistent play.

If you've got a machine you're willing to provide, please contact any of MCS, Murphelman, and/or Heisenberg here on MAACA or however else you know how to reach us. :)

Anyone providing a machine for the tournament will get free entry to the show and our gratitude! (And maybe more goodies still TBD...)

Stay tuned for more information and thanks in advance for your assistance with the success of this event!

Thanks to everyone who has generously offered up games for the tournament!

It would be great to have a couple more to keep lines short, so if you plan to bring a game anyway and have one you think will hold up for six hours of play, please consider putting it in the CNPO bank. It may get a lot of play, but it won’t be by children forcefully double flipping. :)

As thanks, you’ll get free admission to the show as well as some free entries for the tournament.

Please message me or Murphelman, if you can help out!

Congratulations to the finalists! Check-in for Main is at 10:45am, Novice has until noon because their round won’t be until Main semi-finals.

Anyone who doesn’t check in will be replaced by the next highest seed.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped out with the tournament whether directly or indirectly, by donating a game or your time or simply participating!

I think it went overall, but welcome any constructive feedback anyone has to pass along.

The results should be posted in the next week or so, but it may take longer because the IFPA website crashed and submissions are on hold at the moment. When available, they’ll be found here: https://www.ifpapinball.com/tournaments ... p?t=25241#

Congratulations to Canadian National Pinball Open 2018 Champion Jason Hamel! After a three-way tiebreaker, Craig Morse finished second, Mark Hauser third, and David Bourque fourth.
