    Quoted from fireball2:

    Just got both machines I'm bringing all dialed in. Ready to go. Staying at the Hilton across the way all weekend (Fri-Monday morning). Gonna be in Oaktown Thursday afternoon/night: Maybe a trip to PPM.
    Is there a Pinside meetup in the offing? I'll have my not-stinking badge. Speaking of...PracticalSteve: Meet @ Nightrider? YO Miguel351: Meet @ Fore?
    No PismoArcade this year ;(
    Anybody else around here bringing machines?

    Sounds good! When I know what time I will get there (saturday only) I will set up a time to meet at Night Rider! My cell number is (510) 774-0572, you can text me any time at the show as well.

    I am also bummed there is no Pismo Arcade this year as well.

    Wow! I'm really feeling the love. Thanks, Steve. Hope it's a terrific CalEx!

    Any idea if gble will be there?

    #107 3 years ago

    fingers crossed that marco brings a couple pros and premiums

    Quoted from fireball2:

    YO Miguel351: Meet @ Fore?

    I'll be there multiple times throughout the show until I beat it. Just look for the Duck Dynasty lookin' dude walking around, if I'm not playing it. I'll have my Pinside badge on but mof knows what I look like, too. If you see me NOT playing it, just grab me and we'll go play it!

    #109 3 years ago

    Loved PAGG - new to CA extreme. How packed is it typically Sat am first thing vs rest of the day?
    Bringing my kid who is super respectful to the games, just want to make sure he gets a good crack at pins and vids.
    Would later in day be better? Or worse?
    Thanks gents.
    Coming either way!

    Quoted from Vino:

    I think early Saturday is your best bet...also laaate Saturday. If you are just there for Saturday, best get there when the gates open for prereg people (1/2 hour before official start) if you are prereg'ed.
    Yer boy will have PLENTY of vid opportunities.

    haha. 100grand is tough on this one. My best so far as I worked on it is about 70ish

    Only a one player, but we could alternate games baby.

    I'll have my cowpoke hat on and a beer in my 7/11 cup.

    Imo and experience at these shows around dinner time like 6pm or so is usually best if you want free reign on games. Late at night can be packed, especially at CAX from what I saw last year and when it first opens there is sometimes a rush, especially on Day 1

    Our ACDC Pro in the booth will be for sale just a note

    #113 3 years ago

    See everyone there in the morning looking forward to this!

    #114 3 years ago

    My kid asked how early can we get up tomorrow. Thanks for the tips - wearing me badge!

    #115 3 years ago

    You can almost see night rider from the front door. A bit to the right. Across from that giant video game called killer queen. I'll start hanging around there about 430 or so. The line-up looks good this year. Marco brought two Ghostbusters. Saw amh too. One guy has a bunch of project ems for sale. Gonna be fun.

    #116 3 years ago

    A few pics of what is to be another OUTSTANDING CAX!

    I will swing by night rider around then, I always wear a black trucker hat and will have my badge

    #119 3 years ago

    Will throw you a text at the show later MOF

    #120 3 years ago

    Anyone at Dwights talk right now? Would love to hear more about the GB wizard mode.

    #121 3 years ago

    I'm here until at least 11- going solo now. Hit me up if you want to play some games. Maybe some friendly dollar games?

    #122 3 years ago

    Just woke up from long nap. Headed down at 9:15
    I will be in my Zingy Bingy shirt.

    #123 3 years ago

    Was glad to meet fireball2 finally at the show...
    His Night Rider EM got the most play from me at the show. Finally flipped it...
    -mof

    #124 3 years ago

    Agreed, that Night Rider and hanging with fireball 2 was a huge highlight!

    Great seeing JVSPIN and MOF! Great meeting Vic!

    Really liked playing Viking, strange world and was surprised by Monte Carlo!

    I think my next DMD might be shadow, played a couple of really nice ones. How much they going for now?

    #125 3 years ago

    Thanks gentleman... it was a pleasure. Saw Sparky today too. Pinsiders represent. That pimped out shadow made me want one too. New sys11 fave: Mousing Around. Yes, that Viking was fun. And Deadly Weapon rules no matter what anybody sez. Also Spyhunter the video game. Only downers: no whoa nellie and no multimorphic p3. Seems less crowded than usual. Also more broken machines than usual. And that haunted house STILL isn't working.

    #128 3 years ago

    Congrats to Keith Elwin... another 1st place...

    The last couple vpcabs vertigo machines in our booth are heavily discounted so we don't have to take home! Can't post this discounted of a price online so come by and see!

    Yep....Love that pic.

    #131 3 years ago

    Other CAX highlights for me: Late-night gaming with Maxpin, talking 70's with MoF, an after-the-show loading dock out of the blue deal for an Expressway (finally!), that guy Paul (i think?) who helped me unload (a first for me for CAX; they could learn from PAGG), the seemingly smaller, more polite crowd this year (I had a lot more multi-person games with strangers this year), and Title Fight. I need one. Now. And Night Rider held up like a champ. Just a slight eos adjustment for the right flipper on Sunday morning (so many plays!), and she was strong again.

    Waiting for PAGG now...

    Quoted from genex:

    i think i may bring my AMH if no one else is bringing one

    txs so much for bringing the amh, my first time seeing or playing it.

    Eden and I couldn't stop playing it.

    #133 3 years ago

    My pleasure! Got over 500 plays over the weekend and held up really well - I was happy

    I wanted to play yours and the iron maiden pins, but I never had a chance. Hopefully next year..

    My highlight of CAX was having breakfast with Eugene Jarvis, then kicking his ass later that night on Robotron. Great memories!
