    Can't wait! Favorite show of the year. I know @djblouw and I organized the Classic Bally Row last year and I think it was a pretty big hit...so this year to keep it fresh we are looking to organize a Classic Stern Row! Anyone out there who wants to be a part of that area let us know! We're looking for Stern Electronics Games from 1977-1982.

    I know I should be able to bring Dragonfist and Ali. What else do you guys and gals have that can join the space?

    Thanks for starting the thread J.m.!

    Kevin and I are actually meeting tonight to discuss some details so more will get filled in soon. Already have a few vendors committed for the show.

    The countdown is on! It’ll be here before we know it...

    I know both of us are really excited for this years show!

    Favorite show of the year.

    +1. I love the relaxed vibe. I really enjoy supporting the show year after year.

    Quoted from Tsskinne:

    ...we are looking to organize a Classic Stern Row!

    Oh sure, the year my only classic Bally would be ready Sadly, I don't have any classic Stern.

    #5 1 year ago

    looking forward to this year!

    #6 1 year ago

    Most likely will have Playmatic Fandango at the show, as PATZ is the party place.

    #7 1 year ago

    Looking forward to this!

    Bring it anyways, all games are welcomed. Of course there is always time to buy a classic Stern and bring that too.

    If it’s what I think it is you better bring it I’ve been waiting literal years to see it!

    It is what you think it is

    #11 1 year ago

    Always look forward to the show. I’m pretty sure I’ll be bringing something. Somehow I don’t think my Rawhide is what you had in mind for the classic Stern row.

    #12 1 year ago
    Quoted from Underspin:

    It is what you think it is

    So okay, what is it? Or is that secret information?

    #13 1 year ago

    And John, you help make it a special show each year with your generous auctioneering services. Kudos in advance!

    I was making a bigger deal than it actually is. 8BD (standard cab, non LE)

    #16 1 year ago

    My favorite show! Cant wait.

    Quoted from Underspin:

    That is a big deal! Quit talking and start chalking!

    #18 1 year ago

    I am getting stoked- no, wait. I might even be Amp'd!

    #19 1 year ago

    Does anyone else need or want to replace some tempered playfield glass?
    Wondering if we can entice a vendor to bring some...
    I only need two (maybe a third) and shipping costs and "custom" quotes from local suppliers seem high...

    Anyone? Anyone?

    #20 1 year ago

    Check with Pinball Life. In past years they've brought glass if you pre-order.

    3 weeks later
    #21 1 year ago

    Can't wait. Getting my Joker Poker ready. hopefully get the tilt issue worked out so it can be in the tourny area. I have 2 pieces of Translight glass, brand new. if anyone is interested. 28.5x21 tempered glass. Also have a DMD, and board from my Rocky and Bullwinkle, put in a color dmd. Let me know and we can work out a deal.

    #22 1 year ago

    Pre sale for tickets has started! A nice little discount if you do the pre sale rather than at the door.

    Please do bring it! I know it may not be the most sought after but I've always wanted to play it. That and Memory Lane and Lectronamo.

    Does anyone know if a vendor or two are planning to bring the new Elvira or will there be 20 examples of Stranger Things?

    I've played Stranger Things Pro at One Well and haven't run into the Elvira yet...

    I can answer this. We usually don’t know what will be there until the week of. Last year we had a mix of stuff from tilt amusements and the pinball refinery. It’s just kind of what’s in stock. I can do my best to ask our vendors what they are thinking though!

    #31 1 year ago

    It was cool to see all the extra parts people brought last year. Definitely looking forward to that section again. Hope people bring their spare boards working or not.

    #32 1 year ago

    What, kinda like this?

    We'll definitely be getting with Alex and Kevin to see about bringing a special item or two this year.

    Leeann and I were also talking about doing discounted "PATZ Show Packages" - were you could save 30% on an entire package of mods, plastic protectors, etc on a particular machine + saving on shipping. We'll be posting more about these packages and special items in the near future.

    Also, if anyone would like to purchase an item or two from us and save on shipping, please contact us at [email protected] to place your order and we'll bring to the show.

    Nevermind.

    Bring whichever game you want.

    Should be a fun tournament.

    #41 1 year ago

    Just wanted to bump this!

    #42 1 year ago

    I hate to ask but pinball events are getting cancelled into May at this point.

    What's going on with PATZ?
    If there is a cancellation for April what are the chances of doing a reschedule in, say July or August?

    #43 1 year ago

    Free mask's and hand sanitizer at the door?

    Use the big gorilla as the sanitizer stand.

    Well we'll be in Kzoo doing something regardless.. gotta love non-refundable hotel reservations.... but really hoping for the best here.

    #47 1 year ago

    I've attended the 'Zoo for the last few years and there are 200 or less in a very large space. I will be going, if it is on. Of course, I will have generous amounts of hand sanitizer and may play with gloves.

    'cause a bunch of old guys getting together won't be a problem.
    Couple weeks will probably tell us a lot with this stuff. Not worried personally, I can survive the flu, but I sure don't want to be a carrier to anyone else.
