Re: Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 - Official Thread

what about having a "giveaway" table where we can all bring our old parts and tools we don't want/need any more and just want them to go to someone who might use them? We could all just empty out the surplus in our workshops that we don't want to even bother selling, but just want it to h...

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

It is difficult to play the game if you are trying to conform... And you don't wish to. It is hard to change the game without conforming first... And then, it might be anarchy. I have anarchy for breakfast. I’m not a fan of my job and I do not conform. I do what I need to and produce more than requ...

The History of Nickels and Dimes

The one thing I know is Gottliebs Black Hole was the first pinball machine ever to demand a $.50 gameplay. Does anybody know this the timing, game, or history behind pinball machines turning from nickels, to dimes, to quarters or even loonies for that matter? What did Americans use besides one dolla...

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

I watched a movie and ate leftovers. Drank a lot of water. Did my best not to loose patience. Celebrated my wifes birthday for the 4th time this weekend. Enjoyed the sound of silence when everyone finally went to sleep. Watched some youtube video's on kick out holes. Thought about my income taxes. ...

Re: Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 - Official Thread

Just a little update. I’m looking into making some sort of arrangement with Beau’s Brewery again.

We have about 2.5 months before the Hawkesbury Flea Fair. It’s still early. Anybody wish to state they’re bringing a machine to give us a little something to look forward to?

My advice to anyone who has never been there, you have to go at least once. It is such a spectacular environment with such a diverse range of machines to please everybody. The food is fantastic and it’s located just outside of the sky dome which makes it great to kick about downtown Toronto for a wh...

Rob an unlicensed Star Wars. Retheming you’re probably robbing a licensed product anyway. Might as well grab something cool. I have a ton of vintage Star Wars stuff you can throw in it.

They returned the next year to Canada PinCon 2018 where they made the decision to get an EM family pin for their home. As...

The winner can be titled in the thread after the flea fair. No tournament or anything, just find the cur...
