OK, and how about if we want to give a hand for transporting games?
Can someone just send me a pm for places I have to go to pick up a few games for other members or what other method are you thinking about??

Whatever you guys want to do to bring more pins. Keep it fun. When it turns into a job it's not worth it.

I love the social side of the hobby myself. Went to visit a buddy on Saturday. Looked at his pins, talked about pins and all said and done didn't even play a single game. Lol

I really only play pinball. I'm lucky I could use my cell phone to do text messages and take silly pictures to send to my brother-in-law.. LOL

My web guy is a little pre-disposed at the moment.

Vids are 100% welcome. As you can probably see, Canada PinCon is not following the norm when it comes to your average exposition or show. With a live band, large screens and roller derby presence, I'm trying to expand the atmosphere and make things more entertaining and interactive.

I'm looking forward to more vids and vid lovers. That leaves more pins open for me. ;)

Update: I have secure a truck to transport my machines to & from the show. There should be room for other peoples machines if anyone else would like transport. :)

If you can bring your machine to my house, I will be happy to deliver to the show (& back). Be assured that I treat every machine as if it were my own, so your babies will be as safe as can be. I even try to avoid potholes. :)

So will there be a roller derby match going on at the arena?? That'd be amazing.

There won't be a match. We did a cross promotion with their big event a couple weeks ago. I've been trying to blend the pinball and roller derby subcultures together. I've "married" them up with North Star and things are going well.

They will be there to hang out and enjoy our event. They might have sale tables to sell amongst each other.

Roller derby. Fond memories of the 70s. I remember watching it on the black and white TV and jumping head first on the sofa propelled by my bursting level of adrenaline, my young mind totally unaware this was a show, not a fight.

Pinball, Roller Derby and Bowling, a perfect trio screaming for 70s nostalgia. All you are missing is the Drive In cinema. :thumbup

Also while playing in the pinball tournament you get randomly hip-checked once per game and have to scramble back to your feet to save your ball.

We have a great selection of pins and more to come. I have PMs from guys trying to get their machine convention ready before they post.

Starburst (Player One Amusements) have yet to announce what they will be bringing but they will be bringing every blockbuster they can get their hands on.

Let show the States that were not just some Mickey Mouse country up north. Bring more machines. I have the space and I have the power.
