Just got home from chicago expo....a few observations. Great show, great people, so glad to have the opportunity. But, it needs more machines! Too many machines were pulled by 5pm on sat. I get people have schedules, machines get sold, etc. but it just needs more machines. Families, the future of the hobby, come on saturday! To spend $120 on admission for a family of four and find theres effectively only a handful of good pins is disappointing. And The good ones were clogged up with wait lines, leaving only marginally maintained ones open for play. No pinbot, no black knight, but four copies of a so-so game? And if you bring a pin, and thank you for doing so, but make sure it runs and has been cared for. Too many machines with bad coils, warped playfields, and other issues. Have some pride! I know machines are pricey and maintanence is continuous, i do have one myself, but please do what you can. Ill get off the soap box, just a thought or two. Thank you to all those who help make these possible. It truly is appreciated.
