Just thought I'd give an update on how The Colorado Pinball Club is going. So the club is three meetings in now and about 50 people are on the distribution list. It is a very informal and welcoming setting. We meet once a month on the first Saturday of each month. Times vary but usually around noon. We meet at various locations along the front range, mostly trying to stick to the greater metro area. We do usually meet at a pinball location, but aren't limited to this.
The focus of Club is more to the collecting, restoring, repairing, finding, moving end of the pinball spectrum. We do have a few techs and many many other skilled people that greatly benefit pinball (auto painters, welders, electrical engineers etc...) Some members compete in leagues as well. Its a great place just for the networking aspect, pinball and personal.
At the last meeting we has an soldering workshop at Arapahoe Bowl to learn to solder. We had a bunch of scrap circut boards we practiced on and about 5-6 soldering stations set up. The turn out was great. A fun time was had by all, and we played pinball...
The next meeting is set for Saturday May 5 8:30 am. In Highlands Ranch. We will be playing around with a few EMs that need some love and a cocktail pin also.
If you would like to join us at this meeting or any other in the future, please contact me.
If your an operator and would like to host the club at your location, let me know.
