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!

CANCELLED – East-Anglian Pinball Show (Swavesey) @ The White Horse
Jun 27 – Jun 28 all-day
CANCELLED - East-Anglian Pinball Show (Swavesey) @ The White Horse | Swavesey | England | United Kingdom
The most laid-back pinball show returns to the White Horse Inn in Swavesey, near Cambridge.  Every year there is a good mix of games for regular players to enjoy and to tempt those who may be new to pinball into finding out what pinball is all about.
 
Every year we raise funds for our chosen charity through donations and with the excellent prize raffle, with the draw held on Sunday afternoon.
 
The event is also the home of the free-to-enter UK Cup competition and occasionally other rather interesting competitions designed with fun in mind! All are welcome to enter and play for the UK Pinball Cup, and other competitions are suited to all ability levels and are open to all-comers.

Bavarian Pinball Championship 2020
Jul 18 @ 1:00pm
Bavarian Pinball Championship 2020 @ Donauworth | Bavaria | Germany

A maximum of 76 players. Registration is required from 1st May at 20:00. E-mail address for registration will be announced in April. Cost is €20.

The tournament is played in the Swiss System – every player will be there until the start of the semi-finals in the late evening.

The best 8 players move into the semi-finals and play against each other – 1st against 8th, 2nd against 7th, etc. in a “best-of-3” played on 3 different pinball machines (drawn at random).

The winner of each match moves into the final.

The best 4 players will then play a final on 2 machines (7,5,3,1 points). In the event of a tie, the main round place is the tie breaker.

World ranking points will probably be awarded at the tournament (registration in progress).
