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

As it always is before a trade show, things are pretty hectic in the preparation stages of it all. Many of you know this, yet even an old dog like myself is still blown away by the amount of effort, time and energy it takes to get things lined up and not mess up anyone's pre-orders, requests and let...

Re: OPGS Set-up Schedule

Ideally, looking to leave work on Friday for Ottawa around 4PM, should be able to slip by traffic (yeah right, wishfull thinking). The reality is probably closer to my leaving Montreal at 4AM on Saturday morning. :FP: I will have the bosses' camper van filled to the ceiling with parts & stuff an...

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

What a day yesterday. Just amazing, and loaded with fun, hard work and accomplishments. That is the way I like my days to unfold if I can help it at all. On the road from 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM and loving it. Since I feel like rambling tonight as I get ready for the big week ahead filled with "plan...

Re: Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

I need a leg bracket for a firepower. The part inside the cab that accepts the bolts. Already packed for the parts table as is is a very popular item at the show. I usually bring 50 and they sell out, will bring more this year. Price is 3.00 each I believe, maybe less. http://www.pbresource.com/hho...

So, regardless of a daily grind, my batteries are recharged thanks to a few minutes with Doctor Pincon and his evil minion Connor. LOL Take a detour to see a friend. Life is fragile.

Re: 2019 Ottawa Pinball Show

Between the preorders to R.A.B. and all the parts that will be there to sift through, the OPGS show is my time to stock up on everything I need for all of my winter projects. Oh and if anyone has any longer wood clamps (like 1-3 feet long) I'm looking to buy some used. I think that this year's show...
