Keep Rupert's Kids Cool

Saturday, August 31, 2019, 7:00 PM

"Keep Rupert's Kids Cool" A tournament presented by PinVault to raise the funds necessary to properly air condition Rupert's Kids Arcade! Date: Saturday August 31st, 2019 Time: Doors open at NOON for check-in and practice play. Tournament qualifying starts promptly at 2:00. Tournament finals start at 5:30. Location: PinVault - 1043 Virginia Ave. Indianapolis, IN 46203 Format: We'll run a three hour qualifying tournament using the "Flipper Frenzy, Pinball, Pinball, Pinball" format. We'll have multiple tournament directors on site for hands on instructions,but essentially, you'll be playing head to head two player games. The computer will select your game and your opponent. For each player, the computer will develop a pattern of two games back to back, followed by a short break of 3 to 5 minutes. (That's just enough time to hit the restroom and/or grab another drink). At the end of the qualifying period, the top 16 players will play in a PAPA style group bracket finals tournament. (Groups of four players will play three games. Points will be awarded 7-5-3-1 based on the result of each game. The top two in each group will advance to the next round to repeat the process.) This event is fully sanctioned by the IFPA. For anyone who doesn't qualify for the finals, plan to stick around and have some fun! The games will still be on free play and we'll also have additional side competitions to raise money for Rupert's. These will include 50/50 high score challenges as well as organized runs of "STALL BALL." How to Play: The goal is to raise as much money for Rupert's Kids as possible.  Once a player has purchased their $10 "Tournament Play" ticket on Eventbrite, their name will be added to the tournament participant list. In order to maximize the donations generated, we recommend sharing the Eventbrite link with your friends and family via Facebook, or whatever it is you crazy kids are using to stay in touch these days. Have your friends and family simply buy as many "Player Support/Donation" tickets in your name as they'd like. We'll also be accepting cash and checks on the day of, too. The player who raises the most money for Rupert's Kids will receive a special prize the day of the tournament. $50.00 in total donations will cover your entry fee into the tournament. In the event you don't raise $50.00 in donations, you can still play in the event for a simple $10.00 donation. *Since the games will be set to "Free Play" for the entire day, we'll be charging a one time fee of $5.00 on the day of to cover all the pinball action for the day. (This money simply helps to offset the maintenance costs on the machines.) Anyone who raises at least $100 in donations will have the $5.00 cost waived by the PinVault!
