Here are the shows I'm planning on being set up at this year. A bit late posting this, some may get added, some may get dropped as things fall into place this year.
Midwest Gaming Classic
Wisconsin Center, Milwaukee WI
Golden State Pinball Festival
Lodi Grape Festival Fairgrounds, Lodi CA
Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show
May 31st-June 2nd
Tacoma Convention Center, Tacoma WA
Pinball Expo Chicago
Westin Chicago Northshore
Houston Arcade Expo
I will be offering my arsenal of parts, mods, testers, tools, board and game repair, and of course, install of my anyPin NVRAM Battery Eliminators.
anyPin NVRAM Battery Eliminator Install-
For those bringing games to the show for others to enjoy in the free play area, I'm offering free anyPin install for the games you bring to the show. Bring me the board from the game, and your anyPin NVRAM, and I'll hand it back to you with a professionally installed RAM socket and no more batteries will ever be required for your game again.
I'll offer the same install for anyone bringing me their CPU at the show, but don't have it there in the free play area, for only $15.
Board and Game Repair-
Everything is first come first served, no appointments. Not everything may get done at the show. If it doesn't get done at the show, it will be shipped back to you after it's finished. Priority will always go to games that are at the show. I usually get pretty swamped pretty quickly, so please don't bring me a board Saturday evening and expect it to be done at the show.
Currently Bally/Williams WPC boards will be done at these shows with the possibility of System 11 and DE/Sega boards done at the show depending on how busy I get. No sound boards will be done at shows.
All anyPin NVRAM Battery Eliminator installs will be done at the show.
One new and kind of cool thing I'm doing this year is Pinball Recycling. I'll have a bucket for folks to deposit their old, used, unwanted pinballs into. The balls will be assessed, really bad balls will go to a metal recycler. Some will go to home brew projects like large gumball machines, art projects and the like. The really exceptional ones may get sold as show souvenirs after being cleaned and polished up. All proceeds from any such sales will go to Taro's Legacy Fund charity.
