Ottawa Pinball Show 2018

Postby MadTitan » Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:28 am

I was getting the nepean sportsplex to draft up a contract for next year, and found out that they are already booked for all of September 2018. the only available dates are thanksgiving weekend Oct-5-7 and Oct- 12-14. I'm obviously thinking of booking the 12-14th but thought I'd throw it out to see the reactions. I know I cant please everybody but I always like to try ;)

I can also start the tedious search for a different venue but I like the fact that the power held up at the sportsplex. let me know your thoughts and I'll get cracking.

The sportsplex is an amazing venue for the show and it should be retained IMO.

It's hard to plan what will happen a year from now but having the show on a long weekend is not the best situation so Oct 12 - 14 is the obvious preferable choice. The only possible 'pinball' conflict is the Pinball Expo in Chicago is the second weekend in October.

I think the venue is, for the most part, more important then the dates.

Fortunately the 2018 Pinball Expo is going to be held Wednesday, October 17th - Sunday, October 20th, so no conflict there even.

Another vote for Oct 12-14 at the Sportsplex.

It's simple. If the guys spend thanksgiving weekend with the family the wives are happy and the guys can do whatever the hell they want the weekend after. That's one reason I planned PinCon after May "24".

12th-14th sounds fine!
Although I'm also OK with the long weekend, especially since I make the drive from MTL.
Venue was really good. I agree with everyone else that it would be great to get it again.

Venue was awesome! Best yet I thought. If I was planning something like this I would probably stay away from the Thanksgiving long weekend. Just thinking that some folks are either going to travel to see family or people will not attend because of having family over for dinner. I personally would make time for either weekend.

The week after Thanksgiving and the week before Expo is pretty good timing for a fall event.
The lack of presence from some of the GTA regular attendees this year was only due to long weekend advance plans long ago confirmed and some personal family requirements that came up on my end.

Looking forward to returning in 2018.
Sounds like it was a great show this year. Well done to all.
