After qualifying, four finalists will compete in a head-to-head tournament like the full tournament and will receive certificates.

Juniors may only enter twice times with their highest score counting.

Golf… with pinball machines? It’s a fun way to play! Each game has a goal, and you get one “stroke” for each ball you play on your way to get that goal. You may have to play two games to score high enough, or you may get it on your first ball! You will get to pick which half of the field you are going to play on, so choose wisely! As always, play as many times as you want, as long as time allows! All entries must be COMPLETED by 11:30pm. In the case of a tie for first, those players will move to a single ball play-off at that time, with the winner placing top! Winners receive a certificate for their play!

Friday, April 12th, 2019 from 6:00pm until 11:30pm
