Re: OPL May 27@TwilightZone

Made it safely back to Ottawa!

Unfortunately I’m probably out this month. Plan to attend the pre-IFPA15 events in Toronto.

Re: Toronto: Tilt Arcade

You obviously weren't there on a Friday or Saturday night! I went on Good Friday and the place was packed. Felt much less crowded than the last location, though, which was nice. Definitely worth a visit, but I recommend avoiding peak times, if you can. Unless you feel like watching individuals put i...

LF: Bally #555 wedge lamp sockets

Does anyone happen to have a few old Bally #555 wedge lamp sockets kicking around? I'm looking for three, ideally, but have an immediate need for one. It's for the lights behind the middle stand-up targets on my Elektra. The metal of the bracket got fatigued and snapped off. See photo below. image1(...

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

I’m sitting at the airport in New Orleans waiting for my flight to board after spending Mardi Gras here with some wonderful friends. It was a trip we talked about doing for years, but kept putting off. Then we realized we’d never do it unless we just booked it and made it work. So we did. And has it...

Thanks, Guy! I can't take all of the credit, though, because cait001 is the one who founded PWO and still does most of the organizing. I'm just doing my part to promote it.

Stay tuned for an event I have in the works for March... :)

I know there's at least one IFPA15 Pre-Event already scheduled for that weekend: https://www.ifpapinball.com/tournaments/view.php?t=22969# Not sure how many others are in the works or if that will draw people away from PinCon.

Re: Headed to Toronto

I don't think the limiting factor is the tournament but rather the physical space. It's not exactly "spill outside" weather! But like I said, message Walt. I'm sure the desire to welcome is there, it just may not be practical.

Re: Headed to Toronto

Pretty sure the tournament at Bluffs is full, but message Walt to confirm. Otherwise I second Badger’s recommendations. 3030 has a few machines as well, but if you’re in that area, might as well go to Cabin Fever.

I don't think so. There's one at Cabin Fever in Toronto (or was last time I was there) but haven't seen one in Ottawa yet.
