Pinburgh 2012

Postby PatC on Thu Sep 29, 2011 10:46 am

Pinburgh 2012 will be held at the PAPA World Headquarters March 30 through April 1, 2012.

The tournament entry fee remains unchanged, at $100. You can also pre-order token rolls, and each $10 roll results in a $15 donation to the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society.

The tournament is expected to be the world's largest match-play pinball championship. We have retained the overall experience from last year, but tweaked it with some improvements based on player feedback.

Full details of the event are available at:

http://papa.org/pinburgh2012/

Note that some details may change, but the dates are certainly fixed. You
are invited to pre-register at the following URL:

Pat . . . it's been a long time since we've spent 18 hours a day together.

Looks like flights have come down from their unreasonable $700 to a still expensive, but more reasonable $450 on Delta.

Come on dammit! Where are y'all :)

If you liked Cascadia Cup you will LOVE Pinburgh. If you get a chance, please pre-register, since it will help drive other people to join in. My goal is to have over 200 players at Pinburgh this year... we can handle it!

Thanks and I hope to come back to Portland soon.

My last post was stupid so I deleted it.

Awesome guys, and thanks.

I am planning to post the list of registered players on November 30 (four-month warning!) and the longer that list is, the more players react and sign up too :)

Keep having a blast out there. Any dates picked yet for next year's Slabtown, Pinbrawl, Cascadia?

Showdown is February 17th-19th, Pinbrawl is April 22nd, Pintoberfest will be the first weekend in October, Cascadia Cup will be the first weekend in November (daylight savings time)

Cascadia might be moving to a Washington/Seattle area location. We are floating the idea of having it be a roaming Cascadia tournament.

I will get them all officially posted and RGP2'd soon.

The first list of Pinburgh 2012 players has been posted:

http://papa.org/blog/2011/12/sign-up-for-pinburgh

Almost 100 players have already signed up, over 3 months in advance.

Hope to see you and I'm hoping to make it out for Showdown. (Will know soon, but it's a likely yes.) Apparently there is a poster, and I'm wanted dead or live catch!

Isaac and I are booked at the Extended stay only because it was really cheap for me to book with Hotel miles. Where are others staying? Who all is coming from Portland? Rhodes, Paul, Pat, Noah? Just curious.

I have space for a 3rd person in Isaac and my room. Just called the hotel they said no charge and would provide an air mattress. If that helps.
