O-Town Throwdown Pinball Tournament @ OPGS 2019 - September 21/22

Postby MCS » Fri Aug 09, 2019 9:05 pm

Once again I will be running the O-Town Throwdown, which will take place during the Ottawa Pinball & Gameroom Show at the Nepean Sportsplex, September 21-22.

The tournament is going to be an IFPA-sanctioned unlimited, best game qualifying format on Saturday with PAPA-style match play format playoffs on Sunday.

Details can be found on the Facebook event page.

Rules for the tournament are available here: O-Town Throwdown 2019 Tournament Rules

The volunteer schedule is here: O-Town Throwdown 2019 Volunteer Schedule

If you would like to volunteer, please sign up for open time slots or let me know your preference and I can add you to the schedule. We also need reliable machines to use for the tournament! Thanks in advance to everyone willing to help out.

Items of note:
  • All volunteers will earn 4 free entries for every hour they volunteer.
  • There will be an hour at the end of qualifying exclusively for people who volunteer two hours of their time or who donate a machine to the tournament.
  • Anyone who donates a machine will get a free weekend pass in addition to eligibility for the volunteer hour.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments! Hope to see you there. :)

Thanks, Jason!

Still in need of games for the tournament (preferrably an EM at this point) and volunteers for scorekeeping. Please sign up here: O-Town Throwdown 2019 Volunteer Schedule or send me a message

Volunteers who donate two hours of their time not only get 8 free entries (4 per hour), but also access to the exclusive volunteer qualifying hour from 8-9pm!

My Disco will be there. It can go in the tournament if Sparky and Chris Silver say it is solid enough. Currently at Chris Silver's and I will pick it up and bring it to the show.

If not, I can bring another EM that will be tournament worthy.

Meh. It is a 2-player and it has it's quirks.

If a solid EM is needed, I can bring maybe Centigrade 37 instead of Rolling Stones and put it in the tournament.
Stage 5B. All except for NIB crap.
