At the age of 13 at Grand Casino in either Gulf Shores or Biloxi. The arcade there was MASSIVE, and they had 15+ pins. Saw a Jurassic Park pin, and I loved seeing the dino eat the ball. I had tried to play Police Force and Whirlwind, but JP was the one that opened the door for me. Didn't play much again until 1995 at a place called QZar, and in the lobby they had an AFM. After that, I knew one day I'd get into the hobby. Fast forward to 2012, got my EE degree and commission in the Air Force, and I finally had the income to start getting games and begin the plunge into the hobby!
