Danish Culture Festival* and Pinball Tournament

November 23, 2010

Did you know Denmark is a Monarchy?  By royal decree the citizens there are only allowed to eat french fries with mayonnaise.  Mads Kristensen, our visiting Danish player, will be on-hand at the Pacific Pinball Museum to answer all your Danish culture questions.  He will be wearing his traditional wooden shoes and Leiderhosen and will be singing the popular Danish pop song: “It ain’t fries without the mayo, oh no, oh no”.

Besides that there will be a pinball tournament.  The pinball tournament is FREE for everyone with regular admission to Pacific Pinball Museum.  If you have ever thought about competing in a tournament, this is a great way to give it a try.  Remember: we start at 7pm sharp, but the museum opens at 2PM that day so come as early as you like.  Traditional Danish foods will be offered, such as Little Caesar’s Pizza and Sierra Nevada beer.  All yours for free just for showing up and entering the tournament!

*Culture Festival limited to Danish Pinball Culture

Silly Details:

No cash prizes! But eternal fame – and your name on the wall of the museum. And maybe some T-shirts, PPM Club cards and cool stuff we find on the side of the road on the way there.  Also, this is IFPA-sanctioned so you can earn world pinball player ranking points.

FORMAT:

All players will play one game on three machines. Please note ONE GAME
on each.

The 9 players with the best average position on the three machines
will advance to the A-finals as will the three players with a
high score on one machine.

And since we want this to be an international event we have reserved four
spots in the finals for players holding a foreign passport. PAPERS PLEAZE.  No just kidding.

MACHINES (subject to change if conditions necessitate, such as Fire, Theft, Monsoon, mechanical breakdown, etc):

A-Bank:
El Dorado
Time Machine
Avatar

B-Bank: (if turnout is large or if a A-bank machine breaks)
Volley
High Speed
Iron Man
