    Quoted from Meegis:

    Now begins the yearly debate....
    Do I swap off my winter wheels before making the drive out there or not.?
    Hmm

    May 5th in Ann Arbor has possibility of snow? Sad face.

    #302 1 year ago

    I ASSume he meant the whole Canadia thing? My Summer Tires have been on for weeks.

    #303 1 year ago

    Looking for Friday tickets... PM if you have any.

    #304 1 year ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I ASSume he meant the whole Canadia thing? My Summer Tires have been on for weeks.

    We got snow yesterday... nothing stuck, but it was snowing again. Temperatures are still around zero overnight and winter tires are safer in those temperatures. With that said I'll swap before I head out.

    #305 1 year ago

    I've swapped prior to the drive every year so far, and likely will again.

    Just always on my mind as I drive through some pretty rural stretches where weather can be demanding.

    Quoted from Meegis:

    Throw a pair in the trunk, that is if you have wheel rims to go with 'em.

    Quoted from pinwiztom:

    My trunk is the size of a shoebox. I couldn't even fit one wheel in there.... Let alone 4. Hahhaha.

    working on a couple more italian pinballs for the vfw show, me and the law should have them done.

    The Law and I should have them done .

    #310 1 year ago

    Va bene. Got any names or are they secret?

    #311 1 year ago

    Getting pumped for the show again this year. Will be my 4th year in attendance and I have been singing the praises since my first time out.

    Thanks to everyone who works so hard to make this happen.

    I even have friends coming in from Alabama and Florida just for the show, so I'll be in the parking lot with bombers of CBS and KBS ready to enjoy the weekend.

    Cheers!

    #312 1 year ago

    11 days to go, what a deal.

    Will Abel (Gary) be there with Wonka?

    #314 1 year ago

    We tried to get a Wonka but were unable to obtain one. The VFW did get a Beatles and will be there ready to play.

    #315 1 year ago
    Quoted from MiSC90:

    We tried to get a Wanka but were unable to obtain one. The VFW did get a Beatles and will be there ready to play.

    Wanka eh..... I am a professional if anyone needs tips or tricks.

    #316 1 year ago

    Black knight 3 will also be there.

    #317 1 year ago

    I have 3 Saturday and 2 Sunday ticket to sell for face value (my family was coming down for an overnight, but our kid's sports got in the way). PM me. I will e-mail per Clay's instructions once we work it out.

    #318 1 year ago

    Those won’t last long.

    #319 1 year ago

    I still have a Sunday ticket and EM ticket available as well.

    #320 1 year ago

    Any chance of an Oktoberfest being there???

    #321 1 year ago

    We have decided it is time to move on from my original Black Knight. It's pretty nice looking but eventually ran into some sort of board problems and no longer functions. I'm attaching a photo. I live an hour or so from the Ann Arbor Show this weekend and if anyone was interested in it I can bring it to the show Friday morning and hopefully leave it there for exchange or find a time when we could meet there.

    Send me a message and we can discuss more details, more photos, and a price.

    The show is NEXT weekend.... Don't mix the dates up

    #323 1 year ago

    Well, my son who's graduating from UM told me he's hanging out with his friends Friday, so I can go to VFW on Friday. I was able to get an EM tourney spot and now I just need a Friday pass. Please PM, if you have a spot to transfer.

    Thanks. I'm stoked I don't have to miss the event completely this year.

    2 to 5 inches of snow in the forecast for this Sunday (4/28)! Should melt off pretty fast, though. Looks like it will be highs of about 60° for all three days of the show. Chance of rain Friday morning, then party cloudy the rest of the time.

    #328 1 year ago

    Cooler outside weather is better in my mind when it comes to filling a room full of machines that run hot with humans that heat up... with that said last year was the warmest VFW I remember and the place was amazingly cool, I was really impressed and when I think about it I don't ever remember overheating at VFW, the HVAC runs as well as the machines do! Looking forward to it again this year.

    This was one of the reasons the show was moved from the weekend of/after Mother's Day. To ensure cooler weather.

    #330 1 year ago

    Agreed. 60° should be perfect!

    Quoted from abelelectronics:

    Big news for anyone attending the Ann Arbor Pinball show. We will have a prototype Willy Wonka LE at the show. We are taking preorders for all models right now. Contact me if you have any interest.

    Quoted from MichiganDad:

    ticket to sell for face value

    Just made me wonder if scalping VFW tickets is now a thing just like all concerts nowadays.

    #337 1 year ago
    Quoted from polyacanthus:

    Just made me wonder if scalping VFW tickets is now a thing just like all concerts nowadays.

    I needed a couple of tickets for the last show for a friend and had to pay a scalper (a former member of the club) above face value for the tickets.

    Quoted from polyacanthus:

    I hope not. It was likely me overthinking it. I am down to just 2 Sunday tickets if anyone needs one.

    Why is Beatles so short?

    #345 1 year ago

    Single level.
    Like Seawitch.
    Like TNA.

    #346 1 year ago
    Quoted from Jjsmooth:

    Yes, I know, but it's roughly the same cabinet as what it's next to.

    I was playing a Beatles tonight and it wasn't significantly different from it's surroundings.

    Just looks really short in that pic

    #347 1 year ago

    Still have a ticket for Fri, Sat and Sunday. I've had surgery so can't go, just looking to get back what I paid.

    Thanks, Kris

    What a douche move. I would say that if someone is offering you tickets but holding them out at a higher than face value price trying to make a profit, then let Clay know. He could then just refund there $5 reserve fee and release the tickets to those who really want to go.

    The legs mount higher on the cabinet. Game is not nearly as steep as new games.
