Grew up playing pinball, played it every chance I got over the years, but it never occurred to me that I could own one in my house. Went to the Pinball Museum in Ashevlle, NC last year by sheer chance, and it suddenly dawned on me that I could buy one. Bought Cyclone first, my favorite game that I played all the time at Lenox Mall after moving to Atlanta in 1990. Mentioned to a co-worker that I bought a pin, and he said that Dana, who I worked with for years, and her husband Joel, were into pinball and were part of some show that was happening in 2014...turned out to be SFGE! Joel helped me a lot with getting into the hobby and the rest is history...the games that I've discovered and played have been amazing and even better are the great people I have met in such a short time.
