We have changed the plans for our side Classics tournament. Last year we worked with the Pinball.edu Charity on the Classics event, but we were unable to do so this year due to scheduling conflicts. This year, our Classic tournament will be held on Saturday morning from 10:30-1:30 PM. The format will be 3-Strike Group Knockout. (All players will play at least 3 rounds. If you get 3rd or 4th place in a group you’ll receive a strike. Once you have 3 strikes you are eliminated from the tournament.)

The Classics Tournament will be limited to 40 participants, and have an entry fee of $20. In-person registration for this classics tournament will open at 5 PM on Friday, Nov. 17.

I’m very interested in attending. Please understand, it’s a long way to go and expensive for many, but I hear the venue is fantastic! My only concern is that with the Classics being limited to only (the first) 40) that leaves many of us with only one tourney to play. It might hurt attendance as consideration will have to be made if it’s worth the time/cost for one event and a hope of playing a 2nd. The lure of the 2 tourneys had interested me.


Thanks for the feedback , we are trying to make the best out of this issue that came up this past weekend. we were trying to make it fair for all to have sign ups on the Friday so plenty of participants can get their qualifying games in on Friday for main and then play in classics on Saturday . It will be hard to try to do both on Saturday without getting some of the games in main on Friday . With that said having 40 participants in classics will lessen the lines for main on Saturday . I hated this happened so late in process but hopefully it will work out , fingers crossed. Thanks

Congrats to Trentaur for winning open and Debbie for winning Classics! Trent has locked up top Circuit seed.


Bob disregard the results. I am working on the other eight. Got in late will take care of it asap


Okay, I’ll wait for your fix to update my master file. The top 40 portion that I put online just tonight should still be good, though, since that lower batch won’t impact those positions based on who’s in it in whatever order. Thanks.


Sounds good


Top 24 and me TD. Thanks to all who participated , helped and made this a great pinball tournament in North Carolina
