Huzzah! Pinball! Ian & I will be there with chimes on. Which machine would people like to try? We are thinking either Black Knight 2000 or Time Machine.

Thoughts? :-D
I would just be happy to see you guys for the first time in a million years. Bring whatever makes you happy and make sure you’re thirsty. :P

Chris,

As expected, I am all pinballed out from last week & the weekend.

Pinballs, parts and people will likley peek my interest once again by June, if not earlier, but - " Meanwhile,... I was still thinking.".

Bally 1936 "Bumper" - North Star 1950 "Richelieu" - Universal 1950 "Feature Bell" - Gottlieb 1952 "Queen of Hearts" - Williams 1960 "Ten Spot" - Gottlieb 1971 "Challenger" - Williams 1973 "OXO" - Bally 1976 "Bonanza"

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more. Un max de 10 machines, pas plus.
Une règle suivi guéri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule until the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman friend from sighing, there will only be memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build that RRSP of memories in order to joyfully cushion the last stages of life.

Personally prefer the exceptional qualities lurking beneath any normal state of affairs. Alas, our day to day is being promoted as extraordinary via a world wide web largely fueled by the new dumb & followed closely by the latest breed of unscrupulous scroundrels & judas goats.

Welcome.
No, you don't need to bring a machine.
No, you don't have to register, just show up and participate. Have fun.
There are accommodations nearby, if not walking distance, then by taxi/uber.
Excellent. We all support the venue by attending and buying their beverages and food and bowling.
Looking forward to seeing you.
Cheers. Salut.
Scott

Would love to go again this year, it was fun the last few times, thanks Chris !

I cannot commit or promise quite yet, work hours have been/will continue to be crazy, and also busy with the family.
Also need to check how this darn pandemic is at the time, hopefully it should get less rampant than now.

Unsure I'd be able to attend both days yet. If I can attend, I would be glad to help with simple repairs if any needed.

Currently fixing a Game Plan Sharp Shooter, if done in time would bring to the show and will be for sale.

Thanks!

Less than a month to go. Now is the time to crawl out of the wood grain, step up and announce if you’ll bring a machine. We are looking for roughly 20 pins to provide the atmosphere. The current list is updated in The Holy List of Pins.

Either way, it will be a good weekend. Obviously, we need the support of the collector community to make a collector event. The outcome defines the possibility in the future of holding another Canada PinCon and putting Canada back on the map of having a strong collector association.

I’m looking forward to seeing you guys there. 8-)

The list isn’t updated. I have posted in both threads stating I am bringing a game and now even a juke yet I wasn’t added. I have also been asked to pick up another MAACA member and a machine from him as well.

It looks like the Olympia Bowl is going to be double booked for a few hours Saturday night of our weekend.

There will be a 50s-60s Rock ‘n’ Roll band playing with an older crowd. 8-)

I’m modifying our layout to hold our machines on the bowling alley side and we’ll be able to enjoy the band for free as well. They won’t be bothering us. That also leaves us with a better flow to hang out in the bar room.

In consideration of this, I will be bringing all pins as planned before I leave with my family.

I will miss attending the entirety of the event.
My pins will be there in advance as planned.

Cheers.
Salut.

Count me in for a game. If there is interest I would also be willing to run an IFPA tournament this time around provided there is enough interest.


Cheers
