    Yay! Glad to see it's going to happen again. I will again volunteer to help in any way I can.

    Tagging albanytim and lawlor_and_order, as they both know more about how tournaments run than I do...

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Unfortunately, the prices for most hotels get fairly expensive in Saratoga during the summer

    They will also fill up quickly, especially for a weekend. If you intend to stay overnight, you're best off booking your room NOW.

    I like the design for the shirt... but please don't make orange the only option. I'd prefer grey & white options, and I know lots prefer black.

    Quoted from docquest:

    Any out of towners find a decent priced hotel that's not too far away?

    You should be able to find something in Albany fairly easily. When it comes to Saratoga, August, and Inexpensive, you can only pick two.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Would anyone be willing to chip in a few bucks for pizzas on Friday?

    Sure. Still trying to navigate the logistics of getting a game there too.

    All around great show-- thanks Adam!

    I already mentioned this to him, but I'll throw it out there for the rest of you to see. My only complaint is that people don't pay attention to out of order signs. Someone broke the ball lifter on my 1932 Mills Official-- it must have gotten slightly jammed, and they tried to force it, bending part of the lifter (mercifully, I was able to fix it when I got home). When it was brought to my attention, I made an out of order sign. I come back a little while later, and the sign has been taken off and is on the ground behind the machine, and someone is trying to play. I put the sign back on. Just a few minutes later, I see a fellow trying to play the game with the sign still there, covering a quarter of the backglass. WTF? My suggestion to Adam was that we have "official" out of order signs printed in advance... something better than a hand lettered sign.

    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    This one is my fault I had seen the sign but I didn’t see anything wrong with it, and just pressing the ball lifter worked just fine, I didn’t have to force it or anything so I wasn’t sure who had placed the sign and wondered if perhaps someone didn’t know how to use it, assuming it was broken.
    Official Out-Of-Order signs are great!! I would very much like to see these, and a process for dealing with broken games to prevent more severe damage.
    I’m sorry that misunderstanding happened and I’m glad it wasn’t anything too serious! Again, my apologies for removing the sign at one point!

    No worries, the damage was already done at that point. Those official out of order signs should probably note that no one should be removing the sign without the owner ok-ing it. I do also realize that mine was the only completely mechanical machine there, so it's not like I could have unplugged it-- I should have thrown a cover over it or something.
