Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 Early Notice

Post by Chris Silver »

Good morning everyone,

Its Saturday 4:50am and I have sleeping issues. I figured I'd toss up some early info just to give you guys something to look forward to and read with your morning coffee.

We will be holding the 2019 Hawkesbury Flea Fair this year at the Olympia Bowl in Hawkesbury again. I believe this venue from 2016 was one of the most memorable and best times had by all. We had over 220 collectors and some great moments. It will be the first weekend in June as always since 2014.

* This event will be closed from the public (collectors only) as it was prior to Canada PinCon.
* I'll be extending the Olympia Bowl's liquor license to the outer grounds of the property.
* Camping trailers are welcome to remain onsite in the parking lot over night as long as they remain attached to their vehicles.
* I welcome someone to operate the CNPO - Canadian National Pinball Open in the private room.
* Bowling will be available at a very decent price for the whole family.
* I've made sure the event is absolutely free for everyone. The only thing we have to do is buy beer. If you don't drink, buy your friend
a beer. If you're too cheap to buy a $4.50 bottle of beer - stay home lol. If you're honestly too poor, I'll will buy you a beer.
* It's totally not a requirement, but I'd like to put a secured donation box in the facility offering the ability to donate $5 to the bowling
alley for their generosity. Ray who is the nicest man on the planet owns the bowling alley side and I'd like to make sure he gets a little
something. I'm sure you guys remember Dan who leases the bar selling bbq (2 meats and fries for $5). That was insanely generous of
him. Obviously he didn't profit. He wanted to make sure we had a great time.


I will make an official post about the 2019 Hawkesbury Flea Fair in the near future. I have more information, ideas and plans to expand on. Enjoy your coffee and we'll talk soon.

That's awesome news Chris. It was a great time at the Olympia Bowl - I got a fair amount of bowling in with my daughter so we'll be competing for top score in between checking out the pins again this year.

Sounds great, Chris! One small thing: you can't have a sanctioned tournament at a closed event. You'd need to open up the CNPO to anyone who wants to participate, if it's going to be for points.

The regulars at the bar will be there. 8 to 10 of them and any locals that might have intended on bowling.

I can quietly tell the locals, but I don't want it to turn into a Woodstock version of PinCon.

What needs to be done to make this work?

Only one. ;)

Keep it simple keep it fun. If you're selling machines then bring as many as you want. There's no fees. If you bring me your Spirit that would leave more room in your game room when you get home. Lol

I guess it doesn't have to be a sanctioned event - why not a Maaca-only tourney to determine who will reign as the Hawkesbury Flea Fair 2019 champ?

Only one game to bring?! That’s to easy. I’m going to be carrying the game to the bowling alley on my back to make up for the lack of work bringing in multiple games.

If anyone decides to have a tournament and run a tournament, I will try my best to accommodate them by modifying the Flea Fair to hold whatever kind of event they want.

How broad is your definition of collector? The games I own are in no way gamefloor-ready, so I would only be able to contribute financially.

You don't need to bring anything and you don't need to pay anything. It's just for us people who own pinball/arcade machines to have a social get together. There will also be new and used parts for sale from other collectors. Come on down.
