Re: OPGS GoFundMe Created!

Wow! This is awesome guys! We just broke through the $2500 barrier!

Thank you for posting to IFPA, Pinside! That's sure to help out!

I will see if I can add the IFPA info and the Video to the GoFundMe page!

Awesome stuff! Keep it coming!

Re: OPGS GoFundMe Created!

The show doesn't have much of a Pinside presence, but if there is a 2019 edition I will put my Pinside weight behind it. I was excited to check it out this year for the first time. I want to visit every Canadian pinball show :). Thanks for the support! This was the reason I didn't post to Pinside a...

Re: OPGS GoFundMe Created!

It would be good to have a clearly defined goal/amount though, there should not be an artificial increase, then increase again, then again. If josh and his team can sort out an amount, post it then we can work towards that goal as we have done today I agree. Josh has disclosed a whopping $7K as his...

Re: Ottawa Geek Market extends free admission to OPGS VIP pass holders

VIPs who went to the Sportsplex got a goodie bag containing laminated weekend pass, t-shirt, etc. I drove to Ottawa from Montreal with my gf and we had purchased 2 VIP passes, but when we got to the Sportsplex, it was completely closed down so we couldn't even go inside. We never received any goodi...

Re: Opgs is done son

Even though it didn't happen, I'd still like to purchase a poster for this years show. I've already reached out to P1AG for quotes on some NIB pins. I know I can't afford them right now, but the more I wait the less I seem to be afford the pins from the 90's era as well. I may as well start hassling...
