    Quoted from rkahr:

    I'm thrilled to be one of the 50 in the "yes" column! We're having league night in Virginia tonight; two of us from the league are coming and you can be sure I'll be talking up the party to the rest of the members.

    92 RSVP'ers is what I have on the list so far. Which is only half of where we are normally at for previous years. Not sure why, any ideas? One guy I talked to said that "people have been there done that". I found that hard to believe but it did make me wonder a little if the party has ran it's course??

    "ran it's course"........not a chance.........highlight of the fall season.........can't wait

    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    Not sure why, any ideas?

    Well Penn State will be beating up Michigan State up the road a few miles that day... maybe it's tough to compete with that? Maybe the daylight savings change that night is confusing folks?

    FYI, the Freedom Motors thing came together so I changed my flight to pick up the car on Friday. If somebody needed it, I could offer a one-way ride Sunday through Ohio (Athens), West Virginia (turnpike), the sw corner of Virginia and into NC. I'm gonna stop at the Reboot Arcade Bar in Winston-Salem. I'm staying next to the Detroit airport Sat night.

    I just saw the thread (I must be blind and still recovering from Expo pinballisms). I might go ... gotta check schedules. Never been there and sounds fun.

    #57 3 years ago
    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    There is no monetary admission fee for the party but if you could bring a dish or some type of treat to pass that would be great. Try to stay away from a bag of chips unless it goes with a specific dip you're bringing or we will end up with 40 bags of unopened chips at the end of the night. Something homemade is always a big hit, cookies, rice krispie treats, or anything else you can think of is always fine with us.

    I'm gonna bring some WPC Power Fix bling to give away in lieu of a dish because I couldn't come up with anything edible that I could bring on the plane. What bling? The sport bottles I had at the York Show... should be able to get about 20 into my luggage.

    #59 3 years ago

    Michigan and Michigan State both have home games that day. Speaking for myself, I have season tickets and won't be able to make it to the party. My suggestion would be to try and and schedule it when both schools have away games. Thanks, Howie

    Really? Football over Pinball ?? I can turn on the TV's in the basement and you can do both at the same time....LOL. The party is always the first Saturday in November, you'd think they could schedule around me.

    John

    #61 3 years ago

    Lately, I'd rather play pinball over go to football, but those damn tickets are expensive.

    #62 3 years ago

    Looking forward to going after missing the last couple of years. Just need to decide what to make to bring. Last time I made cookie crust cheesecakes topped with cherry pie filling. Might go that route again.

    #63 3 years ago
    Quoted from hlaj78:

    Game is something like 3 hours and the pinball party is open for 12 hours. Isn't there room for both?

    Not a chance it's run it's course your party is better than some shows I've attended

    Hey John, would a last minuter RSVP be OK with you? Tx Greg

    #69 3 years ago
    Quoted from Lefman:

    Hey John, would a last minuter RSVP be OK with you? Tx Greg

    RSVP's are ALWAYS welcomed and the more the merrier. We'd just like as much advance notice as possible so we can plan for a few things.....
    Please email my regular email address when doing so. Pinhead67@sbcglobal.net and let me know who and how many are coming with you. I don't think it's too much to ask, rather then just showing up unannounced.....which is frowned upon.
    Anyways, yes keep them coming as there is plenty of room and games.

    John

    #72 3 years ago

    BTW, there is one way to sorta tell who the first timers at the party are. When you sign your name on your name tag it's supposed to be Black marker if you've been here before and the red marker if it's your first time.

    #73 3 years ago

    In honor of the 15th Annuversary, I think additional colors for 5, 10, and 15 years of attendance would be neat!

    If nothing else, John and his fam would be able to rock the 15 year colors.

    Ha ha....that's funny. All though there are a few other couples that have made it each year, that's gotta say something I think.

    #75 3 years ago

    What time do you plan on starting the potluck dinner and what time for the tournament?I'm trying to plan out the trip so I can hopefully do both and still accommodate my dogs and not come home to messes.and I know this is very hard to gauge but any idea how long the tournament should last?I like to stick around even if I lose to congratulate the winner.

    #76 3 years ago

    As more and more people show up there is always more food, the buffet is open the entire time. Your ticket in is to bring something for others to snack on as well. Pizza Hut will be here AROUND 7pm usually. Pete will be taking names for the tournament I'm guessing around 5pm and we usually wrap that up around 7-8pm but it depends on how many people get in on it. This year I think it will go pretty quickly since the RSVP's seem to be down to about half of what they normally are at this point. Plus the tournament game is playing mean and showing no mercy......LOL.

    Tournament is still blind draw partners with each person on a flipper

    Quoted from dhard:

    So you end up with a winning "team" rather than a single winner, right? Or is there a finals where those team members each have to play a one-handed game to separate first from second place?

    Winning "team" is correct. There isn't a deathmatch at the end, or anything.

    Prizes typically go to the top 3 or 4 teams, depending on how much swag we have.

    #80 3 years ago
    Quoted from pmWolf:

    There isn't a deathmatch at the end, or anything.

    I vote for a staredown between Zen Tourney partners to determine the ultimate champion. First to blink, smile, or show any emotion other than animosity towards their Zen Tourney partner loses. Of course, I'm kidding. Sort of.

    #81 3 years ago

    I always want to attend this thing everytime I see it but I'd probably be the only canuck there and it would be a 10hr drive one way.

    We're very Canuck friendly in Michigan and we're always welcoming to our friends from the Great White North.

    Not nice John, I can't ever seem to get any love on the tournament game anyway, now you gotta use one that is being mean....

    Bring a friend and make them do half of the driving - solves the "only one" problem and cuts your "behind the wheel" time in half!

    I have john's approval, so I will be bringing a few of the full size run-dmd clocks to raffle off

    $10 purchases you a ticket, and once 40 tickets have been sold, I will raffle off a clock, and start the process again until all clocks are gone (while I'm there)

    one will be set up and running to see what you're purchasing a chance to win

    if I do not sell 40 tickets to raffle a clock (or the 2nd or 3rd, etc...), your money will be returned to you

    information on the clocks can be found here:
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/run-dmd-assembled-clocks-batch-7-gauging-interest

    if you are flying in for john's party, I can ship the clock to you if you win (for the additional cost of shipping)

    edit:
    I will be bringing a total of 5 clocks to raffle off with one up and running (probably in the garage so that no one misses it

    Quoted from flashinstinct:

    I'll chip in for your gas money! But what rkahr said; bring a friend to help drive. Hotels in Battle Creek (no more than 15 minutes from Johns house) run about $70 +/- a night (Red Roof Inn for $68). I know it's easier said than done, but John's party is a great time.

    I see there's some discussion about the "Zen" tournament! Here's a video I shot last year and the vid explains more about it!

    #91 3 years ago

    Email sent - The wife and I just missed last years when we moved back to MI from SC. Looking forward to it!

    #92 3 years ago

    Get me those RSVP's. We are going food, pop and other stuff shopping today so I need to know what to plan for. Running out of something wouldn't be cool to those that did RSVP as opposed to those that just show up unannounced. So please get your names on the list.
    Thanks

    I'll send an RSVP email tonight, but add 2 as my wife and I decided last night that we would attend (for the first time).

    #94 3 years ago

    It's never too late to RSVP, well maybe the day of the party is too late but the sooner we know the better so we can plan for a better/smoother party for all with the least amount of hiccups.
    Judging buy the RSVP's we've gotten so for this year the number is still way down compared to previous years so there's still plenty of room and games to play. Tournament people need to return for sure to defend their previous years title......LOL.

    John

    #95 3 years ago

    RSVP emailed --- looking forward to our first pinball party!

    #96 3 years ago

    I'll be there to defend my ZEN title. 2 years ago I believe, could not make it last year, so I have still yet to loose since I won!

    RSVP sent..

    #97 3 years ago

    Thanks guys, keep them coming. I've had 25 RSVP's just today alone so the number is growing but there's still room for plenty more. Lets see if we can reach a new record what with this being a 15 year milestone for the parties.
