PinGolf Tournament – March 20, 2014

Participants will play 9 pinball machines, with each machine assigned a point-based PAR. The less balls it takes to reach the pre-determined points on each machine the better your score will be! Each pin will be set up to give you 5 balls per turn.

As an example, The Addams Family may be a PAR 3 set at 50 million points. You get 10M on your first ball. You play your 2nd ball and score a total of 45M points. Now comes the drama, you need to get 5M more points on ball 3 to PAR the hole. If it takes you 4 balls to get 50M points your score will be recored as a 4, and so on. Each player will receive a score card to record the number of balls or “strokes” they needed on each machine.

We will also have several “Hole In One” pins for even more excitement!

Entry is only $20 and is limited to the first 25 people who email us.

The top three finishers will win some great D&D prizes!

Prior to the tournament we will email you a complete list of rules.

Warms ups start at 5:45pm, and the tournament begins at 6:30pm. See you there!
