Here is a video from last year’s event which was produced by CBS affiliate WKMG. Sure, they commit the “audio sin of pinball journalism”, but the coverage was still good.

Tournament Schedule:

Friday 7pm – 12 midnight
Saturday 10am – 12 midnight

Sunday 9am – 5pm

The Southern Pinball Festival Tournament is a PAPA Circuit Event. Players can earn points to try to qualify for the PAPA Circuit Final which will be held the day before Pinburgh, 2013.

My recent T-5th place finish at Pinball Expo has vaulted me into a tie for 19th place on the PAPA Circuit standings. It has surprisingly put me in the hunt to qualify for the Circuit Final. That’s one reason why I am thinking about going to this event.
