I have a Maverick that I just bought from the original owner and refurbished.

Took it from the living room it has sat in since 1995. I can't bring it to Ogre, as my truck isn't registered yet. But you can pick it up in Knoxville, on Sunday for $2k. Aside from minor sun fade on one side, and sun fade on some plastics, it is mint. All new bulbs and Titan Rubbers and drop targets. Just did a full strip and clean.

PM me if you want more info. Also interested in trades.

Mark is the founder. Marco is an actual person who works for Marco Specialties by coincidence strangely enough. I believe he run the operations part. I bet both are in Nashville.

Was warming up some Marco games early during set up and Trent Augustine was on Elvira which was lined up backwards next to me. He nudged it over like 2 feet in 10 minutes?! Never had a back box bump into me during gameplay before! Lol

Best grande ole expo to date, all games are playing fantastic and very nice selection this year.

1 small complaint - they need to have marco or another vendor bring more parts and mods. Marco had very small supply of rubbers, rebuild kits, pinballs, springs, etc... I like to buy stuff and there was not much.

If you request Marco will bring stuff you order ahead to save on shipping. Good for large items like PF Glass, but yeah not any supply sellers here.

I was surprised by the considerably smaller ballroom size. Although it’s out of the organizers’ control, it was cool to see the space used so efficiently. Jason’s games looked and played great, especially the tournament ones on the 10th floor. Overall it was very well executed and I got to experience several new games such as Houdini and Oktoberfest.

I also got to catch up with Steve Nutter at his RetroTech game and PVM monitor booth. I would encourage anyone to stop by next year if you’ve never seen professional studio grade CRT monitors before. He buys them from liquidation sales and restores them.

Great show and the tournament had close to 100 players. Was a blast, can’t wait for next year!

I enjoyed going for my second year. I remember the other place in Franklin, TN. It seemed quite a bit bigger.
Not many machines but really just fine for me. I come in on Friday, play until I'm worn out, then run around Nashville on Saturday and head home. Short trip to enjoy pinball and play machines I haven't seen in a while - or new ones. I counted about 52 machines + a dozen more or so from Marco / Flip-Out. Most were ready to play and in good condition. As you would expect, quite a few machines turned off with issues by Midnight Friday. No problems with that at all - it happens. Really like the hard top Comet there. Joust was fun. Good playing Solar Fire - happy to get time on that title. Gottlieb Genesis is a lot of fun and there was one there. The popbumper cap popped off during my game though .. bummer. There was a really nice Star Gazer and Centaur - both played really nice.Stern Catacomb and Big Game too. So quite a variety!
Lots of old 80's vids, many in amazing condition. I'm really happy to hear of 100 people in a tournament in this venue. I was hopeful that Saturday was a good turnout. I seen it promoted on the Sat. morning news in the hotel twice. This show is important to the area IMO and considering the growing activity of pinball buyers / collectors / etc. around Nashville over the last 10 years or so, I expect this show to grow. I find it a little Louisville-like in that there is a comic-con vibe with vendors, retro consoles, VR. I like that, but I wonder if that prevents growth in the pinball vendor area. I was happy to buy several sheets of glass from Marco but would have bought a lot more if there were vendors selling some playfields, hard tops, color DMD ... things like that.
Thanks show organizers and game donors for being courteous and keeping with this show. I'll keep coming back!

yea, it really was a great show that improves every year. Don't forget Music City Pinball had a entire row of solid machines, I think 10-12 and Jason (Game Galaxy) had some of his nicest games there. They really need to hire a full time tech to keep games going and a larger selection of parts vendor/vendors would be awesome.

Don't forget the 24 or so machines on the 10th floor for the tournament (also provided by Jason). Fathom, Quicksilver and some other unique SS.

I was at this event and enjoyed it quite a bit. Other than the new machines of course, I found myself going back to playing Comet and Centaur again and again. Both were in top shape and played very well. I even collected the 1 million point shot on Comet for only the second time in my life in my last game on it on Sunday, and I got the 5-ball multiball on Centaur. Special thanks in particular to the owners of those two machines for bringing them.
