Re: Alouette Amusement Gift Card Request

A few gift cards might motivate someone to buy a pin/project from Alouette as well not going to happen. MrHide is correct, - yes I know that is surprising, :shock: but stranger things have happened on MAACA. :D There are very few pinball projects worth spending any of your winter restore time on in...

Marital bliss may be more important than the quantity of pinballs you need to harbour.

But what the hell do I know ? :lol:

I have basically given up on trying to make compromises with others, I already have my hands full just dealing with myself.

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

What a difference an hour makes, huh ? I may well be a freak of nature, or maybe it is just that people around me are keeping to themselves concerning what they are feeling these days, hence causing me to think that I am different for babbling about circumstances making one feel generally weird.

Thanks Robert. Yes, in-line for sure. They look just like what I've got in Fathom. The coils are the main things but yes, the bracket would be a big help. If you have other parts for that assembly (coil stop, plunger, lever etc..) I'll take as much as you have. But, worst case, I may have old ones ...

Josh,

Guy and I will be there by 9 to tear down and help in any way we can.

Forces of nature, not much we can do except keep going after the storm.

Anyone who had parts pre-orders to pick up, they will be available from 9 am to when tear down is complete.
