I don't have the knowledge or experience to run a tournament but I can certainly pitch in and help with score-taking, etc.

Re: PINBALL IS A DRUG

Hey, I hear you guys know where to get good pinball. (scratches my arm furiously) Can you hook me up with some good EM or early solid state? I need to shoot some straight into a vein.

Re: Is Sparky okay?

I feel terrible about this situation. Sparky replaced the flipper bats on my EB at pincon. For various reasons (vacation, stripped leg bolts, life in general, other pinballs to play) I only got it back on its legs last week. Guess what I found inside the cabinet...a whole assortment of flipper bats ...

Re: Canada PinCon - Call Out

I'd be happy to pitch in for an Ottawa to Hbury truck as well. I have two pins at my place that want to go to pincon, but I only have room for one in my vehicle. I am available on the Friday to help with the loading of any machines which need it!

Re: Canada PinCon - Holy List of Games

Eightball Champ is a beautiful fun game. It would be nice to see one at the convention. Are you saying the Stern Magic at your place is MaskedVillianPinball's and you only have room for one? That is correct, MVP's Stern Magic is currently living at my place. The other pin I would like to bring is a...

Re: 1979 Stern Magic FOR SALE

This table is currently residing at my place on a temporary pinball swap program. Anyone interested is welcome to come over and give it a spin, pm me and maybe we can set something up. Magic is a surprisingly well-playing early Stern SS pinball. I only say "surprisingly" because a lot of t...

Guys, is that really necessary? I know there are (to put it mildly) irreconcilable differences with the host. I'm a customer there, half a dozen of my closest friends are at the pub on the regular.

If democracy permits, I will be there It was a blast to rediscover this title at Friday's free play night! Good call on making it a 3 ball tourney. There were often people waiting to play it on Friday and this was only partially explained by its novelty....folks were having long epic games on it (so...

Re: Win a Pinball Machine (again) Ottawa Pinball Medics Arcade Double IFPA Tournament Feb 19th

Stoked for tomorrow! I have not played Kiss in decades so I had to do some research on pinside to refresh my memory. That Lady Luck is a sweet prize, I had the pleasure of playing a ball or two when she came to life last Wednesday.

Keep on flipping, folks.

A big thanks to all of you!! I am sure we will get to the bottom of this.

Re: Harlem Globetrotters Solenoid Issues

Agreed: I diagnosed the bridge based on multiple solenoids failing, especially the kickout. A weak kickout is just the kind of thing a failing bridge will cause (while the other solenoids will still "kind of" work). When it was doing it at my place, this was the symptom....all the solenoi...
