Canadian Kong-Off?

Last weekend, arcade Donkey Kong players gathered in Banning CA to participate in the annual "Kong Off" tournament - this year was number 7. During the stream, Billy Mitchell mentioned that he's been talking with someone in Montreal who wants him to come out and help with promotion (for hi...

Re: Midway-Adventureland in Ottawa Closed

Prices are way too high at this point fpr what is there but as reality sets the prices will drop. They are open to offers, selling price of most of the remaining items will be a fraction of the aaking price. A very cheap claw or redemption game would be fun in a game room if somebody had the room D...

If anyone is able to post updates about what they've found on site or how sales are handled, that would be great. I'll try to make it out to see what's up.

Re: Midway-Adventureland in Ottawa Closed

That's a real bummer to hear. I see it was open for Family Day so this doesn't look like a closure that had any pre-announcements although maybe I missed it. Not sure what this means for staff unless this was discussed internally and not a surprise. Did you learn of the closure through the owner?

Holy crap - a Disc of Tron Environmental at TARG?? Wow. That would be incredible. One of my faves, you can't beat the enviro experience. It's a very fun game straight from the movie. Can't wait to see this.

Re: Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 Early Notice

The regulars at the bar will be there. 8 to 10 of them and any locals that might have intended on bowling. I can quietly tell the locals, but I don't want it to turn into a Woodstock version of PinCon. What needs to be done to make this work? I guess it doesn't have to be a sanctioned event - why n...

Re: Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 Early Notice

That's awesome news Chris. It was a great time at the Olympia Bowl - I got a fair amount of bowling in with my daughter so we'll be competing for top score in between checking out the pins again this year.

Re: OPGS Game List

Any chance you could borrow that sweet Missile Command cabaret you have at TARG? We could make a nice mini row.

I'll bring Ms. Pac Man mini directly, and a Pac-Man mini (multigame) with Xylog's help.

Re: Stern Lazer Lord auction on ebay

Time share pin - I like it!

Would be great to get this to next year's OPGS...

I'll follow here - could be conditionally be in for group buy, although the full Lazer Lord went for $7800 US I think. Could be some deep pockets out there.
