GENERAL INFORMATION:

Location – 19 Playford Crescent Salisbury North Adelaide South Australia 5103
. Information and questions from players 12:00pm -2:00pm.

. Tournament: 2:00pm -6:30pm.

. We are running a group match play tournament using matchplay events.

. There will probably be 10 – 12 machines in use on the day.

. Players will be grouped in 4. There will be 4 separate rounds of 3 matches. This means every player will play 12 matches in total minimum.

. In each round the group will play a single game on three different machines and allocated points according to their finishing position: 7/5/3/1 for 4 player groups and 7/4/1 for 3 players groups if necessary. This is the IFPA system of scoring.

. For the first round, grouping will be based on IFPA rankings.

. PLEASE NOTE: After the first round we will use the computer to balance the groups so that players can possibly play each other for the 2nd to 4th rounds.

. We are doing this because the tournament does not require pre-registration.

. At the close of the 4th round, the highest points score will be allocated seeding for the final to ultimately declare a tournament winner.

. Ties will be broken by the number of first place finishes, then by the number of second place finishes and if necessary a single game play-off.

. ENTRY FEE: $25 for the whole event.

. On the day players should have their IFPA # ready, to save time.
