Ladies and gentlemen the Bat City Open 2019 returns for it’s fourth year June 21th - June 23rd this year with more Circuit flavor!
Buffalo Billiards and the Bat City Pinball club are honored to be back on the Stern Pro Circuit for the 2019 season.
The basics so far:
Colin MacAlpine - Tournament Director
Matchplay format. Qualifying on Saturday with A,B, and Novice finals on Sunday (PAPA Style format).
Total field and games per round still TBD pending game availability. Cost still TBD.
That’s all we have for right now.
More details to come as we firm up all the rest of the important stuff.
Thanks for asking. Have you been eavesdropping on our Slack channel?
This week. Should post by this Friday. Anticipating tickets going on sale next Saturday.
Essentially, it’s the same match play format as last year, but with more players and more pins. Woohoooo!
On Friday evening, we’re planning on running a Flip Frenzy tourney as the warm-up instead of a Strikes event.
Once again, Dos Equis has generously sponsored the Bat City Pinball Club, significantly adding to the prize purse.

Is this correct as it means that these random players will get more payout than the players getting 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I understand the desire for random payouts too keep it interesting for the lower skilled players that come but it seems like top 4 of the tournament should get more than a random number pulled player.
Flip Frenzy Prize Structure:
– 50% paid out to the top 4 finishers (60-25-10-5)
– 50% paid out to 3 random non finals players
– 33% (21st-40th)
– 33% (41st- and above)
