    Not sure how much beer talk is in jest and how much is real... if I bring beer it’s ok to drink and share in food and parking areas?

    Quoted from c508:

    Not sure how much beer talk is in jest and how much is real... if I bring beer it’s ok to drink and share in food and parking areas?

    Last year my group took a few breaks and 'tailgated' in the parking lot, as did others. We were respectful of the property and picked up after ourselves and had no issues. I am not sure about carrying a drink to the food/eating areas... we just kept that activity at my truck.

    #409 1 year ago

    No food or drink is allowed inside. And don't use the property as a trash can. And don't start fights or run into stuff/people. That's about all the rules i can think of in regards to the outside property.

    Tickets for the Saturday tournament are up for sale.
    http://vfwpinball.com/?page_id=179

    Format details:

    Non-Stop Head to Head Tournament
    The tournament will be 3 hours of nearly non-stop head to head games. We will begin at 8:00 PM.

    The tournament will begin with a random opponent on a randomly chosen machine (3-4 people will initially not have an opponent but will instead be placed in the queue).
    Each pair will play 1 game on their chosen machine. When the game is over both players will report the outcome to the scorekeeper.

    The loser will then be paired up with the next person in the queue and a random machine will be drawn for them. Everyone in the queue moves up 1 spot in the queue. The winner will go to the back of the queue.

    After 3 hours the top 8 based on winning percentage will go on to finals. Finals will be groups of 4 with PAPA style scoring (4,2,1,0). Each group will play 3 games with the top 2 from each group advancing.

    Please note you do not need a show ticket to play in the tournament.

    #427 1 year ago

    The saturday night tournament is now available on the http://vfwpinball.com/?page_id=179 tickets page. Starts at 8pm saturday night (after the show closes, so it does not conflict). Flat entry cost. Should run to about midnight. This is a way to get more pinball playing saturday. Also you don't need a saturday day ticket to play in the tournament... these are independent things.

    #428 1 year ago

    btw, while not specified on the vfwpinball.com website, the cost of the saturday night tournament is $25 and is limited to 64 participants (this part is specified)

    if the tournament sells out, I may drag something cool and pinball related out of my coffers to offer up as a random draw prize (and 'no, it's not a run-dmd clock'. those days are long gone

    Quoted from frobozz:

    Repeating a request I made earlier (to crickets...)
    OK, still looking to get a Williams woodrail over to the folks at The Strong in Rochester. If I get it to the VFW before the show weekend, is there anyone coming to the show who is heading back east in that direction, who could deliver it to Jeremy at The Strong?
    Thanks.

    Still crickets? Come on, I bet Jeremy would give you a behind the scenes tour if you brought him this game!

    Can we play other games while waiting in the queue or do we just have sit back? If so how long would be waiting if we won and were in the back? Just looking to maximize play time. Thought someone told me you have to wait outside or something like that in the past. Just wanting clarification before purchasing two, thank you

    #433 1 year ago

    I've played similar style tournaments and I would say no you can't play other machines while waiting in queue and the wait is usually a minute or 3 at most.

    #434 1 year ago

    Not in the past no. Unfair advantage and would slow everything down

    remember that you are purchasing a ticket for the saturday evening tournament, not additional play time in the main hall.

    unlike the friday morning [strikes] tournament, NO players are eliminated until the 3 hours of head-to-head action are over. (I know that some people purchase a friday tournament ticket to get eliminated quickly just to have access to the showcase's other games earlier).

    more details will follow shortly, but I can state that I do not believe that anyone will be standing around for very long between matches.

    That's encouraging! Not sure when I'm hauling Firefly there, sometime before the show obviously, but if I bring along the woodrail and then it DOESN'T get hauled out of there during the show, I have to listen to Clay whine about it endlessly, so the more certain a plan I have the better. Thanks.

    Okay I’ll wait to talk to my friend to see if she is interested. Hopefully tickets last until tonight. I know we have thought about visiting some of the local places like Marvin’s and those that stay open later with alcohol. We just don’t like to stand around, hence why we decided to attend this show instead of TPF.

    No you need to be in the queue. The wait time should be only a few minutes, the line will move quickly.

    Reset barcade in Toledo, Ohio is less than 60 miles away, straight South on US 23. Open until 2:00 am. Full bar and kitchen. Lots of classic videos on free play. Three pins on coin play. Baywatch, Roadshow and The Simpsons. Played decent.
    Bands play after 10:00 pm at the attached meat market (Bar 145) bar next door. It is Toledo.....
