Don't miss Homecookin 2023!

Lou and I are teaming up to have a pinball weekend here in Central Florida! It has been 4 years since I have had an IFPA home tournament and this will be the first official IFPA home tournament for Lou. There will be food and drink at both events but feel free to bring something if you like.

What's Happening?
10/21/23: Randy's Pinbin - Open Target Matchplay with Amazing Race Final
10/22/23: Lou's Lounge - Womens Group Matchplay tournament

Space will be limited! Please follow registration instructions below! Email RSVPs only please!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Full Details:

Open Target Match Play Tournament
Location: Randy's Pinbin
Date: 10/21/23
Start time: Doors open at 12n, Food is delivered at 1 - 1:30pm, Tournament starts at 2pm
Qualifying Format : Target Match Play
Target : 25 points

First 8 to achieve the target advance to the Finals

In the event that several players hit the target in the same round, the person with the highest points will earn a spot.
Position ties will be broken by the number of 1st and 2nd places for each of the completed rounds.
If multiple potential finalists are still tied after above, the tied players will play a single-game tiebreaker to determine which players will advance.

Points : 3,2,1,0 in 4 person groups, 3,1.5,0 in 3 person groups
Pairing : Swiss

Finals Format : Amazing Race

We will use the determined ladder seeding coming out of the Target Matchplay qualifying. The last seed will walk up to the first game and place the highest score they can. They will stay at that game till the next seed plays their first game on the same machine. If player two surpasses player ones score at anytime during their play they will move on to the next machine and start playing their game on that machine. If player two is unable to surpass player ones score they will remain waiting on the game and player three will start their first game, while player one proceeds to play machine two. Whomever has the lowest score and did not proceed to the next machine in line will be eliminated from the competitors. Play will continue until only one stands.

Prizes : Trophies for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place.
