Event: SLAP, Crackle, and Popbumpers

On Saturday, April 29th, we’ll be holding another competitive pinball event. SLAP, Crackle, and Pop Bumper is event 1 of 6 of the Salt Lake Area Pinballers Interconnected Tournament (SLAP IT!)  It will consist of a 12 person “A” Division as well as a “B” division where the remaining players will compete.  Divisions are based at the start of the Series based on WPPR points on the IFPA website.  The bottom 2 finishers of Division A will Swap Positions with the top 2 finishers of the B division after each tournament.

Each tournament will be a stand alone event and  will consist of 8 x 4 player matches.  Scoring will be awarded in the following way:
1st = 4 points
2nd = 2 points
3rd = 1 point
4th = 0 points

At the end of the night the player from each division with, of course, the highest score will be declared the winner!  All ties will be decided by a 1 game head to head match to determine final results (3 or 4 way ties will be determined by a 3 or 4 player game.

At the end of each individual tournament each player will be awarded points based on their finishing spot.
1 for 1st
2 for 2nd
3 for 3rd

12 for 12th  (12 will be the default score for anyone finishing below 12th in the “B” division or for absent players.

The top 5 out of 6 results will be used to calculate end of year awards.  Each event will have a certain amount dedicated to the end of year awards.  SLAP IT will have several charity events that may alter how much from each event is being added to the end of year awards.  All distribution amounts will be listed in advance.
