Enter the Pinbrawl

portland-pinbrawl-2010-poster-1-web-197x300

WE ARE CURRENTLY AT 127 REGISTRATIONS.

REGISTER HERE AT: http://groundkontrol.com/wordpress/?cat=12


The time is nearly nigh for the 2nd Annual Portland Pinbrawl. So, bone up on your skills – your pinball skills, your pre-registration skills, and your metaphor skills – because soon you’ll be punching suckas in the face left and right, via your scores being higher than theirs.

Details:
Ground Kontrol – 511 NW Couch St.
Sunday April 18, 2010
11am til death
$20 for entry

Machines: There are a lot lot of them. Check the GK site or the Portland Pinball Map for the list.

I don’t have my datapad in front of me, but last year there were like 120 people (128?). This year’ll be about the same, except that shit’s being capped! 128 en toto. Pre-registration is open now, so you better pre-registrate now or die forever, okay? As of this writing there are 61 pre-registered. Still over a month away and it’s nearly half full? That should tell you something right there…

Note that this year it’s going to start a little earlier. 11am SHARP. Very sharp.

There will be two mini-tournaments happening during the main event, run by your favorite hometown heroes, CFF! The mini-tournos will be a split-flipper tournament, and a one-handed tournament. The split-flipper will be on Viking. The one-handed will be on Dr. Who.

There will be a food cart nearby for tasteful all-day grub.

The format for the main event is 1 on 1, best 2 of 3, double elimination.

The grand prize is a Johnny Mnemonic DVD Pinball Machine!

Okay then, see you then! Don’t forget to try your hardest!
