    Quoted from Nevus:

    Leaving in the morning. I hope to see you all around 12:00.

    I hope to beat you there Nevus.

    #802 3 years ago

    No way! I thought you had to work tonight. Great news.

    #803 3 years ago

    So I know the title said "TX/LA", however, I figured I'd at least reach out and say I'm soon going to be a potential member (if you'll let me) of this club as I am PCSing from Wright-Patterson AFB (Ohio) to Eglin AFB (Niceville/Crestview area of the Florida Panhandle)!

    I am looking forward to meeting a lot of new people (and driving quite a bit to any kind of big meet ups!!). I checked the Pinside map; it seems there are a couple of Pinsiders near the base and in the Mobile/Pensacola area. I am a native of Pensacola, so this is nearly like "coming home" for me.

    Anyways, my collection is modest (LW3 is coming next week), but I hope to be able to offer some games of pinball to fellow Pinsiders, make new friends, and learn some things from everyone!

    See the Gulf Coast late February 2017!

    I just PCS'ed to Barksdale in NW LA, so I just kind of hang out here hoping I'll be accepted.

    Holy shiznaz!!! That is awesome - to know we went from ND and OH to LA and FL just like that. I'll definitely look forward to meeting you down the road! When did you get back from your overseas deployment??

    About a month ago. I'm taking 2 months of leave to 're-adjust,' i.e. sit on the couch and get fat.

    Well welcome home, man. Thank you for your extended service overseas. I plan to do it down the road as well - might PM you to get some tips and details on what to expect in the future.

    It was my sixth and hopefully last deployment. Anyway, feel free to pm any time.

    Back on topic, pinballz!!

    Good seeing so many of you this weekend. HAAG was a great show!

    #810 3 years ago

    Great show, good friends and good fun!

    My visiting non collector friends love the Pacman Battle Royale. Who doesn't?

    #811 3 years ago

    Any big pinball plans for anyone in the club this weekend?

    #812 3 years ago

    Great nephew and niece in from GA for thanksgiving intro to pinball notice she's playing with her doll under her arm

    That's great! Hope y'all are having fun!

    #814 3 years ago

    Here's a friend of mind that I am starting to teach pinball too. With basical cradling, learning of the skill shot, and bonus multipliers on the top inlanes and basic flipper pass techniques, she got to 1.5 bil on AFM. Keep in mind, she's only been playing about a month so that's pretty awesome for her considering she wasn't cracking above 300M on it 1 month ago.

    She's coming over for "Friendsgiving" as we both don't have family in town (wife went to Florida to be with family). More pinball on Thursday!

    Moncla mafia didn't do a live feed this weekend?

    #816 3 years ago

    My vacation from pinball is over.
    After my tournament in September I burned out and work got really busy. HAAG got me back in the spirit. Last night I hit the STLE and Safecracker for a while. I'm hoping to play a bunch this weekend.

    #817 3 years ago

    Happy Thanksgiving GCPC

    #818 3 years ago

    Great day here with extended family and I opened up the game room. I went out this evening and found most of the games on in a four player game with the music screaming.
    Still, a good day of pinball.

    #819 3 years ago

    And....

    My Tigers are winning!

    #820 3 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    My Tigers are winning!

    And getting a new coach it sounds like.

    #821 3 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    And getting a new coach it sounds like.

    And the drama on this one is crazy....it's jimbo...no it Herman...no it's Orgeron...driving me nuts !

    #822 3 years ago

    LSU needs a new Athletic Director. The current one sucks at PR.

    #823 3 years ago

    Just read that Orgeron is to be named LSU football head coach (not just interim).

    Edit: Looking fwd to seeing/ playing an LSU football pinball machine.

    #824 3 years ago

    Check out the new thread on fire for New Balance pinball shoes. Maybe PattyJ will make an appearance in that thread.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    We did Spider-Man.
    Just did not post it before hand.
    It was a great stream with lots of people talking about Dialed In Wizard of Oz and more.
    We found that posting on pinball sites did not really help much. The twitch people and people that follow us always find us.

    It was really fun. I'll be happy to have another get together or tournament as soon as you are travel worthy. Babies are welcome here!

    #828 3 years ago

    I see that someone in Lafayette listed a NIB MMRLE for sale on the HAAG mailing list? I seem to have forgotten a name. Who is Randy? Seems like a fair price.

    #829 3 years ago

    Hey guys! I've been pretty absent here but trying to change that. I just finished our last visit to RenFest last night. Although it's a blast, it bummed me that I had to miss so many fun pinball events and the chance to meet y'all in person. Hopefully I can meet up with y'all soon. I'm going to pick up my 3rd machine this afternoon!

    My youngest son and I a few weekends back:

    The ren fest is awesome. I haven't been there since 08. Post some more pics!

    Not many collectors in Lafayette. Would be great to get a couple people to join gulf coast club from Laffy.

    #832 3 years ago

    Hi Leaky,
    I hav good memories of playing OXO w/ friends back in mid/late 70's at a big laundromat near Purdue Univ campus. Can still here the clanking bell sounds on the old 70's e-m's.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    #834 3 years ago

    Yea, the thread is dropping off in the action. We need to get it on fire and on the front page more frequently.
