3 years ago

I first played pinball around 1970 when I was 5 years old. I had to stand on a milk cartoon to play, but I was hooked. They had tables at our Boy's Club in Providence, RI and I played all the damn time. Loved the game and loved the arcades that I went to as I got older. I always wanted a table but for the last few decades we transferred every 3 years for my job, so too difficult to do, especially with a small shipping weight allowance.

I finally bought my first table a while back, a 1976 Williams Space Mission, and followed it up by getting my hands on a 1972 Bally Fireball. I bought a new STERN Metallica PRO in January 2016 and in April I bought a Walking Dead Pro.  And you know, it becomes more than a hobby.  Then came Grand Lizard, Ghost Busters, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Batman66, Tales From the Crypt, Aerosmith,  AFM Remake SE and at Christmas an AC/DC Premium VE.  Along the line sold Fireball and Creech.  It’s a fun hobby and being recently retired from IT the skills are transferable to working on pins.  I find Bowen Kern's PAPA tutorial videos on YouTube have been very useful--even though I still suck in league play and in competitions!
