Being it's that time of the year again for the "12 Hours Of Pinball" Party announcement that is usually held on the first Saturday of November each year (with the exception of having to cancel last years party plans due to Covid) but what with the upward rise of Covid cases this years it is with much regret that we will have to postpone the event for this year as well. SuAnn and I are just not comfortable with having a crowd of people here in such close quarters, and trying to keep it limited to a certain number of people doesn't really work for us either. It's either go big or nothing at all basically.
Another reason is that we have recently had a few personal family matters this year that have taken up much of our time as well and it's uncertain if things will get better any time soon. We don't want to say either way but perhaps we can at some point pick up with the 18th annual party but I fear it may never happen at this point, but who knows? Time will tell and it's just day to day and that's all we say for now.
If somebody else in the area wants to start there own annual party then please feel free to do so and I can offer up tons of advice on things that have worked and not worked for us in the past 17 years. We only ask that you leave the 1st Saturday of November for us in case we come back at some point.
Anyways, we hope everyone can understand it's not that we don't want to its just that were not able to pull off such a huge task at this time. Hopefully things will only get better for us and we can get back to some sort of normalcy soon. And if you have any past party pictures you can share in this thread please feel free to post them, we'd love to see them as we recently lost 90% of all of our digital pictures taken over the last 20 years. Take care everyone and thanks for understanding.
