I kept everything from my loot bag. I didn't even use the raffle tickets. t-shirt was a thing of beauty this year! I forgot to get a poster so if you could hold onto one for me I'll grab it from you later.

I couldn't make it back on Sunday as I caught a nasty cold which is still kicking my ass. My daughter was practically begging me to go too but I just couldn't. I felt like a neglectful parent.

Great job everyone. Standing ovation to you all. Special thanks to everyone that went out of their way to say hi to me. Chris, (and all) wish we could've talked a bit more.

We and the Friends Got an awesome time, we've talk more than we played, but I think that was the point for us coming at the show! My only downside was that the beer was too hot, I should have bring a better cooler. Josh and Geoff I will wait for the bills for taking advantage of Donny presence at the show, I can't thank enough for bringing such an artist back again in his hometown, I was like a groupie! Didn't have enough time to talk to everyone but we had a really great time.

Just Pictures for now, yet I do have so much to say. Still tired and recovering. Will not be at work tomorrow (wednesday). Back in the saddle on Friday for sure.

So for now I just want to say thank you to Josh and Geoff and ofcourse all who contributed in making this what it was, - simply the best show in Canada so far.

Let's keep it going.

***IMPORTANT REQUEST***

My friend Chris Silver is a great guy, a little goofy on the sides, but I think most of us are. It is a good thing overall that we are that way, makes for colourful exchanges.

Chris lend me a populated playfield from a Gottlieb 1947 "Miss America" for a hands on historical seminar I did at North Star last month and he said I could have all the parts and mechanisms from its underside and he would take the board back and do some wall art.

https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1610&picno=27812

I brought the thing to the Ottawa Pinball Show and Pindude152 stripped it of its parts while I worked the parts booth. But in my haste of packing everything up after the show, I stupidly left the board behind. Chris had already left the show before I did and someone must have picked it up as junk left behind.

Please contact me by PM if you have any knowledge of where Chris' playfield is, I feel pretty bad about it.

I checked with Josh, Cait and PIndude, and they do not have it. It was left near the tables to the left wall when you walk through the entrance, just behind the Alouette parts booth.

Please lmk.

Thanks,

Rob

The thought occurred to me to snap that pic as she was playing. Looked like she was having a bunch of fun.

If this bump doesn't lead to this old & lost piece of wood, then I will have to find a way to compensate Chris for my own negligence, and that is going to be tough. :FP:

yes they were asked. I was out of there at 4am with all the tables put away etc. The staff turned up a few legs and a bagatelle stand but thats it. Someone would have had to grab it or it would have been there.
