How is the taxi/bus network in B'ham? there are some cheap hotels with parking and breakfast 3 miles from the centre in edgbaston or is it worth paying more & sacrificing parking/breakfast to be in walking distance on the sat night...

Just wanted to say looking forward to hosting Shine and UKCS this Sunday

Hopefully get to see some of you on Saturday day/night

I'm going to clean the machines and re level on Friday - but as its a commercial venue machines will be used from the point of cleaning till the event so if the machine been moved around please feel free to level or move them back into place.

I apologise in advanced if there are any issues/faults with the machines @Pick Holder is due in to give them a once over and fix any issues on Wednesday... On the day any issues report any issues to @Matt Vince for Shine machines and @DanLewell for UKCS and they will make any calls...

@Matt Vince and @DanLewell will be based upstairs in the new area so head up there to register etc - Upstairs will be closed to the pubic so everyone can base themselves up there!

As Tilt does not serve food please feel free to bring outside food in to eat upstairs but I kindly ask to tidy up afterwards - I'll put a bin bag upstairs for everyone to use etc

However I kindly ask not to bring outside drinks in unless for special dietary requirements etc

ONLY SERIOUS NOTE - We are open to the public, even though Sunday is generally a quieter day - If someone starts playing a machine wait for them to finish their game etc... I will be printing signs off to inform the public and also my staff will inform them as they come in...

Is there a list of machines that will be used for Shine & UKCS? And is the Shine format the same as last year (i.e. play all machines once, record scores, hand in and top x go into playoffs)
Thanks

There is a list of games (and players) on the Tilt website.

The format will be very similar to previous years, but with more a couple less qualifying games and more people qualifying for the finals.

I will put out a more detailed post later.

The format of the competition will be as follows:

All players choose 10 out of 12 machines to play to qualify for the finals. The top 24 (assuming over 48 players) will qualify, with the top 8 getting a bye into the quarter final.

The finals will be seeded head 2 head best of 3 in all rounds except the final which will be 3 games in a 4 player mini league.

We have had lots of great prizes donated by the members of our very generous community for the raffle. Tickets will be available on the day!
