CANCELLED – Flippermania 2020 @ Pinball Universe
Jun 6 – Jun 15 all-day
CANCELLED - Flippermania 2020 @ Pinball Universe | Bünde | Nordrhein-Westfalen | Germany

Dear pinball friends,

The GPA proudly presents…

With great pleasure I would like to announce to you that there is a very high probability that this pinball event will take place again in 2020.
The weekend would be June 6th and 7th, 2020 at Pinball Universe in Bünde featuring artist Doug Watson. So, pinballs, listening to the guest, eating together, etc. etc. Technology talk is also not possible and there will be no tournament.

The entrance fee will be € 40.00 for GPA members and € 65.00 for non-GPA members.
This includes the buffet meal on Saturday similar to 2018.
We cover the full travel expenses from Doug Watson – Economy Plus from SFO to Germany with Lufthansa – several days hotel, Essen travel expenses, as well as the real expenses of PU for cleaning etc. We do not have to pay rent to PU!

As soon as Doug has booked the flight I will announce registration details

Even if you have never thought about Doug before Panthera, Barracora but also BK2000, T2 and Indiana Jones.
It pays to take items with you to sign and, unlike Elvira, autographs for the show visitors cost NOTHING.

PS: The number of visitors will be limited to 120!

Pinball Alps Tournament @ Osteria Belverde
Jul 18 – Jul 19 all-day
Pinball Alps Tournament @ Osteria Belverde | Campello | Ticino | Switzerland

This is the highest pinball tournament as we know in Europe (maybe in the world), taking place in the Osteria Belverde at 2,000m altitude at the middle station of the chair lift.

Depending on the weather the pinballs will be placed either on the inside or the outside of the Osteria Belverde.

The gaming area inside is very large and gives enough space to have enough distance between the players. On the outside the terrace is also very large and has enough seating to enjoy and wait between the games.

Everybody who enjoys pinball and nature is warmly welcomed to join us in a beautiful scenery in the middle of the alps.
