    We know everyone can't make it although we wish you all could! Lots of exciting stuff going on at this years show! Jersey Jack speaking with some surprises for the crowd! Skit-B Predator on display! Greg Freres of Jersey Jack Pinball and Whizbang presenting Big Juicy Melons! And much, much more!

    Might go to pinball at the Zoo???

    5.5 hours from Madison vs. 8 hours makes it tough.

    Going to try.. Hey I have a very bad hip ( actually two), would anyone say anything about a folding stool so I can play the machines?

    Pinball At The Zoo is a great show to attend.

    Bill, absolutely not! We provide 50 foot stools for the little ones so they can stand and play without their parents holding them up. No one is going to give you a problem with a folding stool to sit and play on.

    Awesome.. Believe me, I'd rather not have to use one. I'm really going to try to go again this year..
    Last year the shows were on the same weekend. I hadn't planned on going till I woke up Friday morning and said "Yep.. Sounds fun.!" I did the 2 1/2 hour drive North up to PATZ on Friday. Played till closing and drove to Rochester, Mi.. Another 2 1/2 or so East that night.. Searched and searched for a room to sleep in. Woke up and did 6 hrs Saturday at MPE. Great Weekend of Pinball!

    Bill: I recall talking with you last year. That's great that you were able to hit both shows! We look forward to seeing you again at MPE this year.

    Would anyone be willing to keep an eye out for a set of Johnny Mnemonic or Jurassic Park plastics for me ? I would like to come, but I don't know if I'll be able to make that drive on such short notice. I'd of course Paypal you some money if you saw a set of either/both. Just figured I'd ask!

    NPO, you got a price range ya wanna stay within?

    I'm new as to how much a full set should cost. Can someone educate me on this so I don't sound like a loon by saying something nuts like "As long as it's under $1000..."

    I'll be there all four days, enjoying myself to the hilt!

    On a different note, I wanted to put something out there....

    I've been truly enjoying the wonderful community that's built up here at Pinside. From all the great advice I got a few months ago getting my first pin, to all the cool people I've met through here and this hobby. I've had a few folks invite me into their homes to enjoy their collections, and I've been wanting to find a way to "pay it forward" so-to-speak. So here it is....

    For any of you Pinsiders from out of town looking to come out to MPE, you're welcome to crash at my place anytime Wednesday night through Saturday night. I'm about a 30~40 minute drive from the show, and I've got three extra beds (one of which is spoken for by my brother on Saturday night), two extra couches, and a ton of floor space.

    Please PM me if you are interested / for details.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    What an awesome gesture! Eric is a great guy!

    I will be at the expo with the wife. Most likely going on Saturday. I know it is crowded that day, but it is also the most exciting day with the all the people, events, and kids tournament. Hoping to see people there. I will most likely be wearing a shirt with He-Man on it.

    I'll be there, it was a great show last year. Trying to decide if I have anything interesting to talk about other than with Jack... Anyone have any ideas? (Unreleased product is out of the question unfortunately.)

    So Keefer.. essentially you can only talk about Stern and Melons?

    That's ok, Jack always talks about the unreleased product from the vids and in person that I've seen.

    How about where peeps can get parts, do they have to order from JJP, or can they get them elsewhere?

    I'll be there as well. Last year was a lot of fun. Planning to do Pinbrawl, Pingolf, some Classics, and the main tourney.

    I missed your talk last year but have you ever done anything like an intro to pinball programming where you show how to take a few switches and make them do various things when triggered by doing the code real time? I don't know how time consuming it'd be but I think it'd be really interesting to see and maybe inspire some of the young coders out there.

    If by Melons you mean Whizbang's game, I don't have anything to do with that other than being impressed by the end result. I could talk some about JJP, but unfortunately most of the stuff I'm working on I prefer not to divulge until release.

    Interesting idea. It would be fun to try sometime, but certainly won't happen by this weekend.

    Nah, I just meant Melons in general

    hah! don't be so sure, this obsession takes you places you never thought when first getting in.

    I should be there, maybe sat.

    Isn't it nice that the "short day" is 9 hours (8am-5pm)? At some shows that is a long day.

    If guys want to stop by the warehouse on Friday night i will be there with lots of parts and games for sale. (Northville MI 48167) Also have an AC/DC Premier for sale/play, and should have the AFM color DMD thing up and running. There's about 100 games at the shop, it's worth stopping by for a look, and to rummage through all the parts/plastics and misc. games i have for sale (probably around 10 games.) Email me for details. I'll be there Friday afternoon, Friday evening, and during the day on Saturday and Sunday. Email: cfh at provide.net
