Gary Stern flew 8,000 miles to come to New Zealand for Pincade 2016!
When I invited him a few years back, he said one of his dreams was to ride a hog around NZ. So while he was in Auckland, he hired a real nice Harley and rode it around the city.
Honestly, you couldn't get a better ambassador for pinball. Almost the whole population of NZ now has a gift of a Gary Stern signed translite or flyer.
Yesterday the NZ Herald (NZs largest newspaper) came down to my place and interviewed him. Some good shots of the System 11 World Championship in the background.
I was so busy organising/playing in the comps I didn't get the chance to take any photos at all, hopefully others will post some.
