    me 3 on the Medieval Madness translite. Looked great. Not recommended if you're the kind of person who demands all original incandescent lighting though.

    Quoted from TBatti:

    Not following the lighting comment? Do you need to change it?

    I just mean that it gives it a lot of POP in a way that converting a game to LEDs does, so if you're a purist it might not be your thing

    "The owners of O'Hanlons Irish Pub removed VLTs four months ago to make room for three pinball machines and plan on adding more."

    That makes me so happy to read!

    does everyone know about the Hawkesbury Pinball Flear Fair coming up June 1st and 2nd? It's a small by-collectors, for-collectors event.
    Super chill and an amazing time. This event is generally just advertised to pinheads so it's very different than other shows.
    Check the thread: https://www.maaca.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=25113

    Hawkesbury is halfway between Ottawa and Montreal.
    tournament, flea market, bowling, pinball. Good times.

    Quoted from Dee-Bow:

    every year?! Same dates?! I'd consider next year for sure.. I love bowling..pins.. Montreal.. sounds like a good time

    yup, first weekend of June for the past 5? 6? years or so. It's a blast. The chill atmosphere of pinheads in their element for 40 hours, cut off from any other distractions. the last 2 years were in a huge arena, but this year is back to the roots. Back to advertising to just the pinball nerds.
    It attracts so much action for the flea fair portion, and despite the niche focus vendors still bring some of the hottest new titles because they know the kind of people that show up run barcades and basement arcades, or at least aspire to

    And it often involves people setting up pinball machines at the local motel and playing them in the parking lot!

    Quoted from Hammerhead:

    Uh oh, that doesn't sound good

    just go to the thread for the event.

    Quoted from Darscot:

    I really hope this show didn't get canceled over internet outrage.

    Nope, the head organizer is stepping down to seek help.

    Any other Canadian metalheads heading to this show?

    that's a stunning poster. Great job, graphic designer.

    by chance anyone headed to Pinball Expo in Chicago this year and have room to bring back a small 1933 prewar machine Eastward?
