I know :lol: :lol: 8-)

Kijiji people suck. Trailer sales places suck even more. 4 machines it is unless someone down this way wants to split on renting a larger trailer to haul more pins.

Well, we will see. They may be substituted with other pins at any moment. I am restoring a bunch and they are in the lineup.

And I have to figure out how to move them all. I have no vehicle to do it, and forget about renting a van for that weekend. Everything is booked 3 months in advance.

And I haven't mentioned pulling them out of the basement either...

I will be doing an update tomorrow with lots of great news. I can also get beer tokens again this year for all the contributors.

If anybody has a machine there thinking of bringing and are pretty well 99% sure it would be great if you could post it before I update The Holy List of Pins tomorrow.

I'm bringing Roller Games to The Beast Of The East tomorrow in Montreal. It is the largest women's roller derby on the west side of North America. It will support the derby and advertise Canada PinCon. Look it up and come down. I guarantee a great weekend.

We have a few more maybes by PM and posting. Its still early and people are focused on Allentown for the moment. When that all clears up there will be more concrete additions to the Holy List of Pins. It looks like I can get all the contributors 1 beer token for each working machine again. For now, have a great weekend. :)

I can consider bringing Bullwinkle and Stargate but only if I can get help to haul them out of my basement and back down after Pincon.
I may also need help with transportation if my dad's van is not available.
Rocky & Bullwinkle, Stargate, F14 Tomcat (in restoration)

I am adding 2 "floaters" which could replace any of the others I am bringing...

Stern Freefall (for Dr.Dude....)
Bally Dolly Parton (just picked up today)

Dolly needs plastic surgery but nothing I can't handle.

43 Game Count!
+39 TBA (To be announced)
+10 Maybe
+? P1AG (Player One Amusement Group)

Which brings us so far to a possible 92 game count.

We have just under 1 month to go until Canada PinCon. After the Allentown dust settles The Holy List will pick up. Until then I've decided to add my list of variables. The TBA's are confirmed quantities from suppliers who are confirmed to bring, but not sure which games to load up yet. The Maybe's are people who need help loading, transporting pins or are not sure of their work schedule. Help a contributor out and split on gas. Make our event guys. Games can be brought to Hawkesbury to my place and stored until the event at what point I can transport them to the convention. Bring them anytime. I can also store them for a while after the show if you are unable to transport them back home that weekend. A reminder, loading and unloading at the Vankleek Hill Arena is easy peasy. Drive in, unload and drive out.

God bless Sparky who has my 1984 Wico Af-Tor up and running. This game is rare as hell and a lot of fun to play with many unique features. It will be added to the Holy List of Pins. :D

Most likely will bring one or two machines, titles not 100% confirmed yet.
Possibly (depending when repairs and testing are completed):
- 1965 Midway Play Ball pitch and bat
- 1963 Gottlieb Gigi

Looking forward to the show!

Chris,

I will bring the Bally 1935 "BUMPER". Mainly because I can easily fit it into my car by myself, and that it is a cool landmark game that should not only serve as a place for me to sort my Montreal Pinball paperwork.

Surprising fact about Bumper is that the play field glass is 21" x 43", same size still used today and for the majority of the pins most of us own, or think we own. lol

In collectors hands, most of the pieces we care about in our permanent collections will outlive us by hopefully being transferred to younger people who will give them a longer life than ours. Bumper will be 100 years old when I am 72 and too old to roll it into a hearse by myself.

Is this why they sometimes call it "a table" ? Maybe I misunderstood something.

Une règle suivi gueri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

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.

I'm pretty sure I will bring
'32 Ballyhoo
Bingo machine (surf club or super wall street) If for some reason I can't bring a bingo I might bring 1939 Keeney Thriller or just some Bally EM title for the free play area
Bally Delta Queen (will be for sale (working budget pin))
and a mystery EM Bally pinball machine (something super rare... Hint: "Big in Japan" but not from Japan)

so 3 pins for sure Plus '32 Ballyhoo

Done. :mrgreen:


51 Game Count!
+39 TBA (To be announced)
+12 Maybe
+? P1AG (Player One Amusement Group)

Which brings us so far to a possible 102 game count.

It appears we will have a special display section and "seminar" type discussion with some ancient machines RAB, Cait001 and Pindude152 will be bringing. These are some rare antiques from the earliest days of commercial pinball. They will have a tent set up in the courtyard encompassing the food court. With trial and error out of the way from the first year's layout I'll be placing the flea market, vendor's village, ticket sales and the special display all in a courtyard surrounding the bars and food court.

We have 20 days to go until Canada PinCon. Just a reminder, games can be brought to Hawkesbury to my place and stored until the event at what point I can transport them to the convention. Bring them anytime. I can also store them for a while after the show if you are unable to transport them back home that weekend. Loading and unloading at the Vankleek Hill Arena is easy peasy.
