    Robin and I were just talking about starting a sticky thread about the Chicago expo. If there are going to be a few of us going this would be a cool way to meet up in person.

    I assume Saturday is going to be the busy day. I understand the pinside tee-shirts are on sale, so maybe we could order one if you don't have one already and wear it on Saturday so we can identify each other. Just a thought - throw out some other ideas or let us know if you'll be going.

    I'll be there, and it would be great to meet some of my fellow Pinsiders. I've already got the t-shirt, so I'm all set.

    Not going to Chicago but would love a t-shirt. Where can we order them from?

    Thanks Thokennedy -- just found the link myself by searching. Seems like this should be something that is advertised on the home page. I don't see it anywhere except in the forum link. Might sell a few more shirts if every pinsider knew they were available!

    I ll be there for 2 days all day friday and all day sat. Last year I only went for one day, It just wasnt enough time

    I plan on going Saturday with my two brother-in-laws and maybe my son. I've been checking the buy/sell spreadsheet on the expo website - cool idea, hopefully I'll be bringing home my first game!

    Anyone know if you have to pay the registration fee for a three year old?

    Actually the t-shirts are not on sale, I just found a way to sell them for the cost price! Hehe, we were actually making a $3 commission on each shirt sold - I removed this. The more people wearing Pinside shirts, the better - right? I always hope to one day see someone walking down the street or at a pinball party or whatever in a Pinside shirt, that would be cool!

    Thanks for the suggestion to put a link to the shop on our homepage. I have added a nice little graphic halfway down the homepage so people can now actually find them.

    Anyways back on topic, Chicago is a bit out of my driving range but I hope there will be a cool little Pinside gathering (don't forget to take some photos, Tom)!

    Robin - the new graphic looks good. Hope it draws some more sales!

    #10 9 years ago

    I will be going. Hope to see some of you there as well!

    I might drive out on Saturday. it will be my first. I am still pretty new to this hobby but, I am getting into it fast.

    Robin - Here's a pic from the last Allentown - I am on the right sporting a Pinside tee :-p

    Ok it's the STTNG one, warp speed baby!

    Hey that's excellent, never seen any photos of people wearing Pinside shirts up until now

    I'm currently looking at a different supplier for the official Pinside logo shirts called Spreadshirt. Our current partner, Printfection, only does digital printing, a technique where the print fades over time (unless you wash you shirt).

    We are looking at creating shirts with flock and flex printing techniques that will last much much longer.

    My wife and I will be there. It will be our first time at the expo. We plan to take it all in starting with the Stern Factory tour Thursday and stay at the Westin till Saturday. I will also bring some Boards that need repair and my BOP playfield for HSA to restore. Does anyone know who will be at the autograph session on Saturday?
