    How much of a discount for two 10X6 vendor spaces? Would combine them for a 10X12 space. Regular price is $30 each. Thinking about maybe bringing some parts and projects instead of freeplay games.

    I'm hoping to bring two EM machines; most likely Gottlieb wedgeheads.
    Still have a Bally "Mad World" which is mostly working and has a fantastic playfield which I will bring to anyone interested. PM for details.

    Quoted from docquest:

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

    I booked a room in Albany a month ago for a little over $100. Don't know if any are still available though. Albany isn't very far away from the show.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Good news--a food truck will be at the show on Saturday for lunch and dinner:

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Friday Food
    I will be ordering pizzas for participants/vendors/volunteers/staff for dinner on Friday.
    If you want in, it will be $5 per person for pizza and soda. Please visit the check-in table and pay by 4:15pm. The pizzas will then be ordered and should arrive by about 5pm.
    They will just be cheese pizzas, unless enough people specify a topping preference.
    Saturday Food
    A food truck will be on-site for lunch and dinner. Same details as posted earlier.

    Sounds good.

    Had great fun, and sold my "Kings & Queens" after the show. Thanks to all, especially Adam and his crew. Looking forward to next year's show.
    Still have that blue ribbon "Hurdy Gurdy" available. Hope to see you all at York.

    Quoted from PinsideMike:

    Good to see growth. I noticed something that might need to be addressed/possibly skews the data on several machines. There was lines because kids would come up and spam the start button starting usually 2-4 player games. Some people would play through all of the games, some would drain the other 3 players, and a handful would reset the machine if there was excessive players started and abandoned mid play.

    Kids were constantly resetting my two EMs after playing one ball, or somewhere during a game. I'd like to wire in a switch so that the game can only be restarted when in game over mode.

    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    had believed some EMs are damaged by having a ball sitting there unplayed for extended periods of time.

    Yeah, the gate coil can overheat. That's another thing that I had to constantly watch for on my "Kings & Queens". Kids would push the start button, then walk away. I had specific instructions on the game, but that didn't help much.
    No more manual ball lift games for me at Pintastic or this show.

    Quoted from zacaj:

    no one reads instructions

    Yeah, you're right about that. Not only kids, but adults as well.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    I still have a few show shirts left--$8 each plus shipping. Grab one now before they're gone forever!
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/2018-saratoga-pinball-ampamp-arcade-show-t-shirts-shipping

    $8.00!!! I should have taken three then for the $25 gift certificate I traded for one!

    A few more. I brought the two wedgeheads. Both have since been sold. I didn't take very many photos which is strange for me.
