Pleased to announce the official 2017 Wisconsin Intrastate Pinball League Championship Tourney!
This will be a continuation of the previous two years in that it’s a fun team play based tournament pitting the highest ranked pinball players from the Fox Cities, Madison and Milwaukee pinball leagues in a tournament to crown an intra-state league champion. After the success the previous two years, Madison is host this year.
Note - This is just for a league championship which is exclusively for bragging rights. For the Wisconsin State Championship, the annual IFPA State Championship Series (SCS) which will be in February, 2018.
Here are the details:
Date – Saturday, November 11, 2017 starting at 10 AM
Location –Mark Seidler’s home in Lodi WI (Address to be sent to League TDs)
Fee – $20 per person to cover lunch, beverages, and trophies/plaques
Attendees – 24 total, 8 from each of the three Wisconsin Leagues (Milwaukee, Madison and Fox Cities). Each league can determine whom to include from their respective league based on their league’s standings. Neo will coordinate the Milwaukee league attendees, Ryan will coordinate the Madison league attendees, and Eric will coordinate the Fox Cities league.
Early Day Format: in the early part of the day, we’ll play a total of nine rounds. Each round will have 8 games played. The games will be three player groups, with one member from each of the leagues playing. Player groupings and games will be randomly selected each round and playing order will rotate by league. The winner of the game gets 3 points, second place gets 2 points, and third place gets 1 point. After nine rounds, each league’s point totals will be added to determine which league won. If there is tie for a winner, another round will be played among the leagues that tied.
Later Day Format: (The Mad Twisted Fox Knockout Bash)--After the initial nine rounds are complete, we’ll do a Two-Strike, Group Knockout tournament for fun. This means players will be assembled into 4 player groups(3 when applicable). Players will play one game, and the lowest two scores receive a strike(possibly only the lowest score in 3 player groups). Ranking will be based on individual point totals from the earlier portion of the day. The top eight qualifiers will get a first round bye. Highest seed will have pick of game, then order will be selected by other players based on seeding. These results will be submitted to IFPA.
Possibility of a mini-tournament, but nothing is concrete, as of yet.
