    My wife and I loved the mini show. It wasn't as loud as it would be with all the people and the running machines of a full show. It was also amazing that there was no wait anywhere so I got to play dozens of different machines.

    I would also go to a full show. An all-day thing would be cool, but since I'm local it was definitely worth the short drive for a 4 hour stint.

    Thanks for putting on the mini shows Clay. I went with a small group last Saturday and we had a blast! Can't wait for the next one, be it full or mini, I am in!

    Edit: And they are gone.

    I've got two reservations for the VFW show this Saturday from 3-7 pm. We cannot make it now. Anyone interested?
    You can PayPal me the $20 for the reservations and I will have Clay switch them to your name.

    First come, first serve.

    This is the last weekend of the mini shows....

    #505 25 days ago

    Myself and my brother in law Were first time attendees this evening. The show was absolutely fantastic. Aside from the random chick with no mask screaming F-Bombs at her boyfriend, We were both very impressed with not only the massive amount of games, but the condition Of each game, and overall feel for the venue and setup. Couldn’t have been more then 20-25 people max. Got to play every game As many times as I wanted, and still had games On my list I wasn’t able to get to.... It truly is a pinheads dream. 4 hrs flew by and even met some nice folks from Indy. God I wish this place was open year round!! Great job Clay and staff.... Can’t wait until next year!!!

    Get that farmer across the road to grow weed and you won't be able to get rid of us.

    Go East one or two properties for your needs....

    Just got back from the last mini show. My first time there. My mind is blown. Thanks to Clay and company for all the work and dedication to make this happen. So many great games and they were all working perfectly. I will absolutely be back.

    #509 23 days ago

    Clay and the Orange shirts thank you for allowing us, the unwashed masses to come experience pinball nirvana. Thank you for still running something for the public during all this craziness. Thank you for your weekends. The wife and I decided at the last minute to come up this Sunday and use our reservations. We wanted to support VFW pinball any way we could and we figured cold hard cash was the perfect way to do that. On the drive up we discussed that at least we would contribute to keep such an awesome collection going regardless if a show was held or not. Please let the pinball community take care of something that is truly one of a kind. Thank you once again.

    Attended on Saturday, and it was great. Four hours goes quick.
    Although it was great, I think I prefer the "big show" to the "small show".
    It was really great to just walk up and play any game at any time. But I did miss talking to people and seeing folks that I haven't seen in months.
    The idea of texting Clay for any problems seems great, but never had to test the system as I never had a problem with even a single game.
    I really like the atmosphere of lots of people and lots of games being played. Few people and pretty quiet is great, but very different.
    Surprised to see the new addition on the building farthest back, and even more games than before. The size of the facility and number of games is getting to be astounding.
    It was interesting to actually hear the sound on each game, rather than the constant loud background from lots of people and games.
    Very weird to walk up to games that aren't even turned on already and start playing in an arcade type setting.
    Still, I think I prefer a bigger show with lots of people, food, t-shirts, and the whole deal.
    Very happy that Clay and crew figured out a way to do something, but hope you can go back to the big show.
    Thanks to the VFW crew!

    I did not realize that Michigan was such a hotbed for revolutionaries.
    I am betting TheLAW was running undercover for the FBI
    to help bring down the "plot".

    Everyone stay safe there.

    Terry Nichols/Tim Mcvie anyone? Big goddamn state and they are everywhere. I'm no friends with right wing wack jobs that's for sure...can't say The Man loves me that much either

    Google Norm Olson/ Michigan Militia for details. They have been in the news before.

    Came out on the 27th, in the morning, and it was awesome.

    I will admit that I've never been to the full show at the VFW, and I'm less than an hour away. However, having that collection almost to myself was really fun. I got to play anything I wanted for as many games as I wanted, and I could mostly enjoy the music and sound effects as well (I do wish the TNA was turned up a little more).
    I am fairly new to this hobby, and I plan on visiting the VFW ANYTIME it's open to the public.

    I'm also more than happy to volunteer if any additional hands are ever needed..
