    make it look like it just came out of the movie The BTTF De Lorean Fully authentic movie memorabilia Pick a date Still less complicated than the insides of a pinball machine These kids weren t even born when any of the movies were released What use is the De Lorean without Doc Brown Naturally the South Coast Slam featured a number of competitive events The main one was the Super Slam Showdown which attracted 105 competitors who played a single game on five out of the eight available machines Mike Parkins registers some additional players Scores were recorded on player cards and everyone had the opportunity to play a Do or Die game which replaced one of their previous scores Current rankings were shown on a 40 inch LCD monitor The popularity of the tournament led to daunting looking queues for some of the machines but they were generally quite fast moving and nearly everyone got to play all their games during the qualifying period which ran until 4pm Once all the scores had been entered the three highest scorers on each machine progressed to the play offs Where some players qualified more than once fourth placed players were added until a total of 24 qualifiers were found This resulted in the top four players on all eight machines actually making it through Players wait their turn to play Those 24 Super Slam Showdown qualifiers were Super Slam Showdown qualifiers Adam Thomson Alain Boulieu Andrew Foster Andrew Shillabeer CJ Brown Craig Pullen David Dutton Franck Bona Graham Owen Greg Mott Jean Philippe Passarieu Jim Lindsay Justin Walker Lukasz Romanowski Mark Potter Martin Ayub Michel Dailly Nathan Garwood Nick Marshall Richard Rothwell Jackson Stephane Swaenepoel Thomas Evrenos Tim Slow Will Dutton They were then paired up by way of a draw to play best of three matches on machines of their choice Each player chose one machine with a randomly selected machine chosen for them if it was a tie after two games The play offs begin The twelve survivors from the first round of play offs were Super Slam Showdown quarter finalists Adam Thomson Alain Boulieu Andrew Shillabeer David Dutton Greg Mott Jean Philippe Passarieu Lukasz Romanowski Martin Ayub Michel Dailly Richard Rothwell Jackson Thomas Evrenos Will Dutton Another round of best of three matches saw the number remaining fall to six with just one more win needed to reach the final Super Slam Showdown semi finalists Alain Boulieu David Dutton Greg Mott Lukasz Romanowski Michel Dailly Richard Rothwell Jackson The penultimate round saw wins for Alain Lukasz and Michel so they went into the three game final while David Greg and Richard played a single game to decide 4th 6th places The three finalists Alain Boulieu Lukasz Romanowski and Michel Dailly In the final each player could choose a machine on which to play a three player game but the choice of play positions was up to the other players The winner of the game scored 5 points second place scored 2 points and the third placed player scored no points Whoever had the most points after the three games would be the winner The first game was played on Alain s choice of Junkyard Alain starts the final on Junkyard It proved to be a good choice for Alain as he took the win with 16 7M to Lukasz s 10 6M and Michel s 4 4M So after one game Alain had 5 points Lukasz 2 points and Michel 0 points Next came Lukasz s choice of AC DC Lukasz plays on the second machine in the final AC DC After two balls it was relatively close with Lukasz leading with 17 8M to Alain s 11 8M and Michel s 8 1M But the third ball changed all that Spectators watching the final Lukasz had a blistering last ball and pushed his score up to an unassailable 112 7M Alain got closest with his 24 2M with Michel again in third on 9 9M So Alain and Lukasz both had 7 points from one win and one second place Michel couldn t end up anything but third but whoever finished highest in the third game between Lukasz and Alain would win That third machine was chosen by Michel and was Indianapolis 500 Michel starts the last game of the final As with the first two games Michel chose his game wisely putting up a third ball score of 529 5M Lukasz was player two and came close to Michel on 444 9M Alain only had 29M after his first two balls following a couple of unlucky early drains Could he claw his way back and overtake Lukasz s score to win the final Unfortunately his bad luck so far on Indianapolis 500 stayed with him and he drained his third ball with a little over 30M on the scoreboard giving the win to Lukasz who ended on 9 points Alain was second on 7 points and Michel third on 5 points Alain and Lukasz shake hands at the end of the final Tournament organiser Martin Ayub presented the specially made trophies designed and built by Woodtech In addition Lukasz won a pair of high quality Bowers Wilkins headphones Third place Michel Dailly Second place Alain Boulieu First place Lukasz Romanowski Saturday was also the day of the
