Hey there everyone! I got into collecting machines last year and as I'm about to have my third machine I was just curious if there are any get-togethers that occur around the Chicago area? I live in the northwest suburbs in Elgin and I don't really have anyone to play pinball with in the competitive sense so I was just curious. I'm also interested in offering up my own place as well for a small party...would only have three machines right now so not exactly a mecca of pinball yet. I linked the three games I own in the post, I should have the AFMR within the next few weeks.

Good question. Not yet but someone is working on it.
Thread is something like northwest pinball league.
Thanks for reaching out.

Cool indy...not even necessarily a party either, if anyone in the area ever wants to meet up and play some on my machines just let me know.
