Hi!

So excited to be hosting my first OPL event on Sunday November 26th!

For those of you who do not know me, from 1979 to 1983, I grew up on the arcade floor during the golden age of pinball.

My father would drop me off every Saturday morning at Mister Arcade at Bank and Alta Vista while he did his weekly errands.

He left me with my $2 allowance to spend, I had to learn quickly how to make the most of my pinball playing time.

Fast forward 35 years and in February 2015 I bought my very first PIN, my all time favourite; a 1984 Bally Midway EBD, (thank you Jason M!!)

Sunday November 26th I will be hosting my first OPL, very hard to host after an event at Jason's, my venue is smaller, but it will still be fun.

So far, I will have 8 Pins, set up on 2 floors. I will have seven of my own pins and one is being loaned from Semicolin (Stern Meteor) to make 8! (TY so much Colin !!)

I have room in the living room for 2 more PINs if anyone would be interested in lending a PIN and co-hosting the NOV OPL with me.

Grey Cup is at 6PM, (the only day I was free), so we are starting things a little earlier.

Doors open at 9am.

Tournament starts at 11am.

Lunch will be served.

Next week I will post the November 26th line up

More fun surprises to come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Craig.

I hung out there quite a bit as well. Mainly Friday and Saturday nights in the early 90's. I absolutely loved that place. I was sorry to see it go. Black hole was the first pin I ever played and I still enjoy it very much today. It was great looking at all the hot rods and modded cars in the parking lot on the weekends too. That was back in my bike days. What a great spot to play. Oh, I remember playing play that arcade hologram game called Time Traveler there too. It was the first game I remember dumping loonie after loonie into it. I don't know if that game would have ever paid for itself. I haven't seen one since then either.

I've been searching the internet for a couple years now looking for the original logo (white font/blue sign) I know it was just Mr. Arcade (or was it Mister?) but I wanted to do a run of t-shirts with "A Family Affair" and the family washroom symbol like was on the sign. I haven't been able to find a photo though and most of the family symbols are rounded and I think the figures were all straight and square on the sign. Plus I remember the Dad being on the left for some reason...
