    Great to see a lot of new faces and old faces I haven’t seen since 2019.

    Definitely. Lloyd is the man. I’m really bummed that I couldn’t make it out. Next time. And I’ll bring a nice bottle of single malt scotch.

    Now let’s see some of those high (low) scores being set so we can mock them here on Pinside.

    My first game on Dr. Who

    Part of the video I just uploaded on Pinball Outpost doing a quick walkthrough when I got there at 2:30 forgot to change my camera from 720 to 1080 but you get the idea.

    A very happy 50 to you, Lloyd. Although we've never met, we've chatted throughout the years on RGP and Pinside.

    You've always been a class act and ambassador to the hobby. Please know how much you are appreciated and respected.

    Go easy on the cheese pump tonight. We want you around for another 50.

    Cheers.

    A little screw up on the ribs. They are being picked up now.

    The cheese pump is what got him this far. Stopping now is not a good thing LOL!

    It's because of you Lloyd...I'm hell-bent to get a cheese pump.

    Congrats on 50 years Lloyd! Thanks for helping me out years ago upon a few questions, and all that you do in this hobby for all of us.

    10 slabs of Famous Dave's ribs lasted about 10 minutes. Out of mugs. Pizza in about 25 minutes.

    #169 12 days ago

    Thanks Lloyd, had a great time!
    Congrats on 50th!

    #170 12 days ago

    Congrats LTG

    #171 12 days ago

    Congratulations on the anniversary. I played at your place a number of times when I lived in the TC and always had a great time. You had a Bride of Pinbot at the time and it is why I have my own now.

    #172 12 days ago

    Congratulations on 50 years Lloyd. You a fantastic asset to the entire pinball hobby.

    #173 12 days ago

    Congrats Lloyd ! Here’s to many, many more years !!

    That's a wrap folks. Thank you to all who came and made the day special.

    Congrats on your 50th Lloyd!

    #176 12 days ago

    Congrats on the 50th LTG! Wish I could've been there(I have friends that live only about 20 miles away from Hopkins that I could've stayed with, too!).

    Also, I knew you were a good guy already, but it makes me even happier to see your choice in mustard! I love Plochman's! I tried it once and I was hooked. I think I'm the only guy in my city that has it or even knows about it. Nobody really sells it out here on the west coast so when my mom(who lives in Florida) comes to visit, I make her bring me a few bottles of it. I'm always curious to know what the TSA folks are thinking when they scan her checked luggage.

    Proof that pinball is a renewable resource!

    Congrats on 50 years, Lloyd! (Too bad I’m not still in Eagan, or I would have been there.)

    #178 11 days ago

    Congrats as well Lloyd!

    #179 10 days ago

    Congratulations Lloyd!

    Even as someone just getting into the hobby it is immediately apparent to me what a dedicated, valuable and appreciated resource you are for the community.

    In retrospect, part of me wishes I would have chatted with folks more, but the introverted side of me apparently won out. Had a great time playing, though!

    Congrats and thanks again!

    Quoted from EJS:

    Nice writeup:

    You beat me to it. Todd did a nice write up of the event.

    Todd has many articles in the older Pinball News, Learn How It Works, section.

    Took me awhile to figure out how to find the old site but here it is:

    https://www.pinballnews.com/learn/index.html

    (had to figure it out last month in the middle of a debate on which tournament game was at expo 2000. So glad he kept the old site archived it's neat to look at the turbulence in the expo reports around the turn of the millennium)

    Great article. Loved how extensive it was, all the photos, and Lloyd's hard-earned life chestnuts.

    That was a good article. Love hearing the chronological history of SS Billiards. Some hardships, and some good times.

    Congrats again Lloyd. I’ll be out to hang at some point and have a glass or two of scotch, play some games and chat it up.
