    John - if one were to fly in, is Detroit the airport to choose? Southwest has pretty inexpensive direct flights from my region...

    Perfect! Yup, Southwest is where I'm seeing some attractive fares. Need to run the trip through scheduling department (wifey) but I'm probably 70/30 odds of coming... will properly RSVP when I get those odds pushed higher!

    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    Heck I've never flown before in my life......LOL.

    Experience-wise, you aren't missing much. But the pain delivers rewards - TPF, Allentown, York, PAGG, Pintastic ...

    Quoted from zimjoe:

    I'm in negotiations with work and wife ATM. Unfortunately, this is right before a big election here in Virginia and I may not be able to swing the time off.

    I know nothing of this 'big' election you talk about in our state, but I understand those negotiations - got my green light! Booked Southwest direct from BWI to DTW for $79 on the way out and Spirit (yea, I know...) for $56 on the way back. If you (or anyone else) want to try to coordinate a ride in a shared rental car please PM me. BWI is a bit of a drive from Richmond, but those are pretty attractive fares...

    I'll be the guy in the green WPC Power Fix shirt.

    Quoted from zimjoe:

    That is a fantastic price on the ticket. Almost worth the drive to BWI. You flying out Friday and back Sunday?

    Nope - flying out Saturday morning and back on Sunday. Another guy from the local league booked the same flights so we are sharing a rental car. We are going to visit Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum right after we land and then continue to John's. Sat night we've got rooms at the Clarion next to the Airport for under $60. There's room for you in the rental car if you want to tag along... but leave the politics discussions in Richmond.

    It's gonna be a great get-away ... I can't wait!

    Quoted from zimjoe:

    Looking at flights now. I'll PM about the particulars. Armed with flight info, I can make plans... or have them crushed. Either way I'll know.

    Hope it can work out... I think John's party can sell out that Spirit flight back to Baltimore Sunday - there are tons of folks within a reasonable drive of BWI!

    Quoted from Dayhuff:

    Hey maybe I can get a cut of that action??

    John

    Given their reputation for being bargain basement, I suspect the only way would be to buy a seat on the plane and make your first plane ride be a visit to the DC area. And, I'd bet they'd let you buy a full price ticket for the return trip as well!

    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.

    Quoted from gentrsa:

    So what do you do when you have airline miles that need to be spent or lost? Travel 800 miles for your first ever 12 hours of pinball party of course, doesn't everyone?

    Got me beat - it's only 591 miles from here... but it's my first time going as well!

    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.

    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.

    Quoted from hlaj78:

    I have season tickets and won't be able to make it to the party.

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

    Quoted from doughslingers:

    I am looking forward to my first time at The Dayhuff's

    Same here - I wonder how many of us on the RSV list are new to his party...

    John, can you PM/email me the address? I don't have it.

    Quoted from dhard:

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

    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?

    Quoted from flashinstinct:

    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.

    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!

    Quoted from marcand:

    Get some friends from Chi-town and come on over! Even better, DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME so you get an hour more of your weekend.
    I love this about the timing of John's party...

    John - your party starts at Noon Daylight time; does it end Midnight standard time?

    Well, my plans have re-arranged a little bit - I am now flying Friday instead of Saturday and driving to NC on Sunday instead of flying home, then taking the train home Monday. Won't bore you with the long story behind all that, but because the trip now has me away from home longer I'll be bringing some product inventory so I can ship orders that come in while I'm traveling. So, if you need some of my boards and want to avoid shipping costs talk to me at the party... I'll have them out in the car.

    Do you have extra old pinballs laying around? If yes, I'll bring one of my new pyramid brackets for everyone to check out. Fun little toy... https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinball-pyramid-bracket

    Wow, did you go early to scoop up all the good deals that have popped up on Detroit CL? I've got 25 hours before I get on the plane... today will be busy but I'm really excited to get this day going and over. This is going to be a GREAT weekend!!!! Thanks for hosting, John...

    John,

    Wow, that was an awesome party - Sooooo glad I made the trip! Thanks to everyone who showed up as well as that was an incredibly friendly crowd. Really like the shirt; I hope the folks that got one of the KAHR.US sport bottles I brought enjoy them.

    Airplanes are already waking us up here at the airport hotel so I know it's time to get some breakfast and start my 11+ hour drive to deliver the car to NC. Tomorrow (Monday) is a train ride up to DC area... bet I'll be the last one to get home after the party.

    I started my last leg of my journey home. Kinda nice to be just riding after yesterday's 13 hour marathon from MI to NC. Train, of course, is running late.

    Amtrak 1 hour late
