Also a big thanks to all involved in making a really great show. :)
Nice to see familiar faces and a bunch of people having fun from 5 to 75. Tons of smiles :D
I promise to bring a pin next year.
Here's a few pictures I took on Saturday.

Lol. La première chose que j'ai pensé quand j'ai vu le nuage de boucane au dessus des machines, c'était que Capersville avait rôti une bobine.

Thanks to all for putting this all together. Vankleek Hill was an absolute zoo but finally getting to Pincon was worth it. Saw all the Volkswagens in the parking lot and recognized a few names on your shirts. The Atari Pong tables were neat. Great afternoon. :D

What a great show! Thanks Chris for putting this together again!

Thanks to all that brought machines, I actually got to play some this year and that was great.

The flee market was one of the best or maybe I am just the craziest one for buying soooo much stuff. Thanks to everyone that lugged all that stuff for us to go through, it is like going to a candy store for the first time.

The all time best part is to get together with the regulars and meet so many new people. Hopefully this will happen again!

Until then...See you in September at the Ottawa Pinball show at the Nepean Sports plex.

Had a great weekend at Pincon!

Big big thanks to all the people who made this show happen.

It's becoming an annual tradition and my official kick off to summer to pack up and head out to Pincon to party and play pinball! I love it! So many laughs.

Stephanie's was rocking like we were in Allentown with the yuenglings LOL!

Here's the only pic I took all weekend. Me and TZ getting loose at Beau's. We didn't miss the shuttle this year buddy!

Cheers!

Sincere and heartfelt THANKS to Chris and all the volunteers & helpers who organized the show, it was amazing and I had a blast!

Big THANKS to all who brought games for all of us to enjoy, I played many games I had never seen or played before. FUN!

And, THANK YOU to all who brought parts and projects for us to purchase, I bought many parts again at this show.

Was nice to see new games there, I enjoyed playing PONG.

The Pinball History/Museum section was nicely done, thanks to RAB, pindude152 and Cait for this.

It was great to reconnect and catch-up with the many pinball afficionados there.

Thanks again, looking forward to the Ottawa Show in September, and to the next PinCon in June 2019 !

Sincerely,
-Sylvain.

I can not say enough about how great it was to see everyone smiling at PinCon this year. And I can not say enough about how generous a man Chris is, in and through his efforts to put on this home brewed grass roots show. And I can not say enough about the wonderful people I am blessed to know and share some of my time with at events like this. Passions prevail and shine in people's eyes when they are doing what they love. And I can not say enough about how important it is to participate in life itself with an intent and presence that makes life extraordinary.

This show was a success on the so many levels, personal, professional and public.

And foremost, thanks to the community for keeping itself together. We really need eachother and should never take our cohesion for granted. Only together can we actively reach out to the outside world and promote the idea and the natural fact that being playful is the best and most positive part of our human nature. I truly believe this.

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

Really awesome seeing everyone come out for a fun weekend. Thanks to everyone that brought games... these shows wouldn't happen if you didn't.

Flea market was awesome... and I came home with way too much stuff... marquees, playfield glass, a manual, tools... and a game.

That's one more pic than I have! LOL.

Was a great time. Shout out to Chris for organizing and putting together a fantastic event. Hats off to Rob for setting up his pinball outside our motel room and letting a bunch of drunks play pinball and chew the fat on Saturday night to Sunday morning ;-) -- that was a blast.

What a fantastic weekend. Loved seeing everyone and chatting. Saturday, for me, was all about people and I was busy saying hi and chatting all day -- and maybe a few sodas ;-)

Sunday was recovery and play pinball.

Thanks again, Chris. Outstanding.

Thanks to Starburst, Playdium , PlayerOne or whatever..for bringing all these new titles year over year.

Fortunately. Breakfast at Stephanie's was awesome. I had crêpe suzette flambée in Grand Marnier!
