Well, I should be able to get a lot done as I am home Friday. I have 7 pins set up right now. 3 of those need slight tuning. I would like to have way more set up but that would be unrealistic. I could probably realistically get 3-4 more set up. And just clean all the shit up.

OK, so I got some things done before I left for Toronto... The place is still an embarrassing mess of machines, but I do have some machines running OK. I even got Old Chicago running at 95%. She sometimes stays stuck in the bonus count loop, and player 3 and 4 might count the 1000 asnd 10000 reels at the same time, but it's to be expected when it hasn't run in years.

But this weekend I will try and clean up the rest.

We'll let Mike and Josh be players 3&4 to make it more even.

Man... I needed to see da boyz!!! Been too long!

I want to thank Chris, Josh and Mike for coming over, and inspiring me to get the gameroom up, or at least some of it for now. 7 pins up and running, Two almost there, and potentially 7-8 more next time. ;)

I think Devil Riders was a hit, but Robot won top honors tonight!!

I can<t wait for the next wall-jump!

Tomorrow is the day for another gathering of borderland crew. Who will win this epic battle for pinball supremacy?

Thanks for the great night Josh. The egg sandwiches were awesome!!! :mrgreen:

For anyone who doesn't necessarily understand, the Borderland Pinball Collective (BPC) operates differently than the local leagues. We are 4 collectors in the middle of nowhere between Ontario and Quebec. We don't keep score or have regular dates. Whenever we can get together every month or so we do it. We do not keep score. We drink beer, socialize and not just talk about pinball but anything in general. Oddly I think there are roughly 50 machines between us.

If anyone has pinball machines and lives within a 30 minute radius of Hawkesbury you're welcome to join. Other than that, if anybody would like to come and hang out for an evening with us you're more than welcome when you see this posting. The next meeting will be at Farmboy's place the first weekend in March.

Later :mrgreen:

Your welcome Chris. Always a good time when we get together even when sparky lucks out and wins a game or two.

Great time with great friends on great pinballs while having great conversations and drinking shitty near-beer, priceless. Lol

Thanks again guys!!!

As for winning a few games, as I recall I did hear the familiar 3 knocks on five occasions when I played. Lol

An odd good playing day for me. Lol
