2020 Hawkesbury Flea Fair

Post by Chris Silver »

Early March, snow on the ground and a sunny day. Sounds like a good time to bring up the Hawkesbury Flea Fair and look forward to spring.

So.... the first weekend in June (June 6-7) as always since 2014 look forward to another full fledged action packed Flea Fair. There's a twist. We'll probably be holding it at Gottlieb Rob's private playland in Alfred Ontario 15 minutes up the road from Hawkesbury. He even has his own unused private campground right beside his place. Rob has a super cool closed down retro restaurant from the 1980's with his private residence attached and an ultra modern complete security system. At the moment, the restaurant is full of project pins and should be ready by the Flea Fair.The Hawkesbury Flea fair is always FREE.

If anyone wants to prepare an IFPA sanctioned tournament, shoot me a post or PM. We can easily throw up Canada PinCon's - Canadian National Pinball Open (CNPO) banner. Wanna bring your camper trailer? Bring your camper trailer. Want to set a table an sell some goods? Sell them. Have a band? Bring your band. Wanna BBQ or do a tailgate? Do it. Its a private residence so BYOB. There's a few decent places to eat in town. There will definitely be a few more machines for sale than normal.

More information will follow soon. Ask any and all questions. At the very least, if Rob's place isn't ready in time we will be back at the bowling alley with all its glory. Get vready and plan it out cause here it comes.

:D :D :D

1) how many pins do you have there already?
2) what assistance is needed in getting them all 100%?
3) how many more can we fit??
4) is that my Panthera backglass? ;)

Great lineup already!

There are too many pins there already. After renovations will know better.

Rob is a master at making them work. Cleaning and tweaking would be great.

How many more to fit? Whatever anyone is selling and whatever would be wanted for the tournament. If someone has something really cool they would like to bring just for the hell of it, will look when we get closer.

Your Panthera backglass is still at my place in the box.

I will try. No promises. I am booked for travel every day until end of April, and I have games to finish for some. Also, I plan to take some time to help Rob renovate.

Amazing to hear! Keep us informed as renovations go. :)
Funny that there are two Panthera glasses there and one with you. when it rains it pours I guess. :)

I would bring a few of my rarer oddball machines. Like, the kind of things I might not trust the general public around OPGS with, but would be more confident with the Flearfair crowd since it's mostly collectors.

Can I just go and not bring any parts ?

I would like to put up a tent in the back yard of this "kitch" hideout on old highway 17 and fall asleep to Bob Dylan songs after I get tired of talking pinball.



Any objections ?

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more no less. Toujours a 10 machines, pas moins pas plus.
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.

P.S. A man needs something to do besides contemplate how crazy everyone has become in a world of overly exaggerated self-importance upheld and maintained by the new dumb.

RAB - Just having you there is enough. Us getting together is all that matters. I have a few hours of Dylan if you need while you defuse in your private retreat.

Caitlyn - There are 2 Pantheras there with one of them being mine. It will eventually be for sale, but for the summer it will be my garage pin (concept stolen from Azathot). 8-) :lol: Your glass is safely wrapped up at Borderland HQ.

Gwlayne - The tournament all depends on if someone wants to host it. I'm not a tourney guy, but I want to make sure everyone has the ability to do anything they want pinball related. It adds to the content of the event. I just make the call, everyone makes the moment.

Tim - Gottlieb Rob is converting the back storage rooms and freezer area into another gameroom and workshop. He'll be opening the wall to enlarge his playland.

Colin - :D
