    Over at the Golden Nugget in Lake Charles for some fun today

    #1752 2 years ago

    Went to DFW to pick up my Lunar Lander monitor from repair. I should have it up and running soon. I stopped by Nickelrama and played Dialed In, Star Wars and Aerosmith. Mudflaps joined me in the adventure. Also, he made me go to Buc-ee's. Where else can you get high fructose corn syrup antelope jerky?

    That's me in the picture playing air hockey behind the guy in the hat. I had a great time playing Star Wars and putting my initials on Hobbit.

    Man I feel for you folks in Louisiana. When did all the Spainiards come over and dominate your rankings? We must have missed that tourney!

    That's pretty funny. I think that happened last year also. Pinball-Is-Great will get it ironed out for us I'm sure.

    #1756 2 years ago

    Damn. They are some dedicated pinball players.
    Probably held a secret event somehow.

    #1757 2 years ago

    Bought this one around 2014 had it at my daughters house since I purchased it. Went this weekend and brought it home as they were no longer playing it.

    Quoted from cadmium:

    Thanks cadmium for pointing this out. I just sent a brief email to IFPA mentioning it to them in case no one else did.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I think that happened last year also.

    I agree. This happened before, and was easy for IFPA to correct.

    #1760 2 years ago

    IFPA found out that the Spanish pinballers were taking unapproved supplements and blood doping w/ a custom concoction that included deli meats, Shasta, and foreign sourced crawfish and shrimp.
    So, all their LA points have been voided.
    Always best to use fresh caught genuine Louisiana seafood -- especially when here on our home turf.

    That's where they went wrong, we don't eat those Chinese shit pond crawfish you find at the Chinese buffet places and we don't drink Shasta, this is LA we drink Fanta and eat Louisiana caught Crawfish. Imposters

    #1762 2 years ago

    Just add Fanta!

    #1766 2 years ago

    Not looking to buy right now unless its a good flip. I have a few games i want but they have to wait right now.

    #1767 2 years ago

    Pimped my Aerosmith last night. The photos aren't great, but the game looks amazing!

    Metal leg protectors
    Pinball life "Britemod" lighted flipper buttons in yellow (cough) ... orange ... (cough)
    Titan white silicone rings
    Titan yellow flipper
    Titan yellow "Stern slim" posts
    Pinball Side Mirrors
    Removed the Stern Pinball's and put in some Premium balls I picked up from Rob Anthony at TPF.

    A few things left. I purchased the yellow Convolux fluorescent protectors, but they are so thick, I couldn't fit them without replacing some of the #6 machine screws in the PF. I've reached out to Convolux for an easier solution. If you haven't seen them, they look amazing! Here is an example thread.

    Looks awesome! I installed yellow BriteButtons in AC/DC last year and removed them because they were... orange.

    So did someone pick up that Ship Ahoy in Laporte this weekend? Had my eye on it but the wife is giving me so much crap about what I have I'm not sure if a pin or a divorce would be cheaper... wait. $400 to cost me 1/2 of everything and all the tail.. I know which is cheaper

    I just looked at your wishlist. Pass on the Ship Ahoy and go for the Safecracker! It's smaller and takes up less space.

    #1773 2 years ago

    For my non-FB friends, Pinbot arrived yesterday and will be ready for the tournament!

    #1774 2 years ago
    Quoted from Jodester:

    Well, they are yellow-ish Chris.

    Orange isn't great for that game, but I may try blue.
    The white Titans are great. I also love the look with the mirror blades.

    #1775 2 years ago

    Hoping members of GCPC make it thru the hurricane winds and rain ok. A bit surprised I'm not seeing any chatter on here about Harvey. Some places in SE Tx and SW La are supposed to get rain for days.
    Dont park by any old water oak trees.
    Hope you all are stocked up with refreshments, including Fanta and some select deli meats.

    #1776 2 years ago

    We had some winds kick up last night and for some reason rain was just parked over my area. We are keeping an eye on it and ready. This morning they were thinking we could get about 18 in of rain? For my area it's looking like rain this weekend up to about Wednesday. But we know how these things change when they hit land so its a just wait and see.

    Be safe GCPC hope to see everyone in a few more weeks at Red River Replay

    Love the Fanta and deli meat reference.
    So far so good in Beaumont.
    Very light rain only all day.
    Hoping for the best as we have days of this to get through.

    #1778 2 years ago

    First band of rain showers related to Harvey is just hitting here where I live east of Lafayette, LA.
    Approx 4:40 pm Fri afternoon Aug 25, 2017.

    Be safe Gulf Coatsers!

    #1780 2 years ago

    We had 7" of rain fall over night!!!
    Here is a photo of Folsom Dr. where my business, Colorado Canyon is located.

    In my best pinball quote voice.
    "Whitewater!!!!!!"

    Indeed. Y'all are in my thoughts and prayers.

    #1784 2 years ago

    Just saw where some areas might get 50 inches of rain. The most Indianapolis ever had in a YEAR was 58 inches in 1876. Sheesh.

    #1785 2 years ago

    Really getting crazy.
    Storm now expected to go back out in Gulf then come through somewhere from Houston on East.
    It's like the nightmare that will never end.

    #1786 2 years ago

    Started raining here about 2 yesterday afternoon still raining. Not like they are getting in TX but they are saying we are not out of this yet. Jodster, Tigerlaw and Pav how is everyone in LC we are hearing reports of flooding for you guys to.

    Everyone okay?

    That's a good idea. I've never seen those for sale anywhere but what fun those would be when the power goes out!

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Thus far limited rain. It comes in bands. I closed my office down for tomorrow though as we are expecting a lot of water. Pav and I's house should be fine (doubt we'll flood here) but I'm a bit concerned about the office if that storm heads back this way now that it's re-entered the gulf. Will keep y'all posted.

    #1788 2 years ago

    We have nothing else to do so tonight's live stream will go on at 9:00
    We will be showing off Jody's X-Men
    Hopefully the weather will just not get in the way.

    I got a bit of water in my sunroom last night. I rearranged the sandbags to keep that from happening tonight. (I hope)

    My game room is high and dry.

    Exact same situation here Jody.
    We had some drips in our add on Sunroom as well.
    So far all games are great.
    Fingers crossed.

    #1792 2 years ago

    Glad to hear everyone is OK so far. Some of the images on the news this morning are heartbreaking.

    Quoted from Dmod:

    At least in the Lake Charles are we are not doing too bad yet. We keep getting breaks in the rain that lets our drainage catch up.

    Horrible stuff in Houston though. One of my friends who many of you in this group have met (I think he may have even posted in this thread once or twice) lost his only pin (a BSD) and everything else on the first floor of his house and his wife was evacuated by the coast guard. Got her two cats out though.

    #1794 2 years ago

    So far doing ok in south-central Louisiana, east of Lafayette.
    My little town is along the Teche Ridge which runs along Bayou Teche.
    That said, two hours of hard rain from Harvey created a lot of temporary yard lakes.
    You can tell when the town drainage system starts overflowing.
    1st pic 10 am, 2nd pic taken a bit after Noon.

    20170828_120805 (resized).jpg
    It's already gone down some in the past half hr in my yard.
    I'll go check out the bayou in a bit to see if the water is up over the dock at the boat ramp.

    #1795 2 years ago

    Talked to one of my friends over in Houston via text a hour or so ago, he and his wife are doing good collection okay. He said A collector a few miles from him lost most of his games. I asked how others in the HAAG group were doing he said most others are doing okay.

    Had my wife check Game preserve face book page ( I don't have a face book) and looks like they are okay and have been opened.

    Any one else hear from our friends in Houston? I hope they are all doing okay.

    Been talking with Phil Grimaldi, Rusty Keys and Keith Christiansen.
    All are good but Phil had water knocking on his door.

    #1797 2 years ago

    Things are bad and getting worse. The flooding in Houston and surrounding areas is so widespread it is unbelievable. Places that have never flooded are flooding. Not going to drop names but I know several people that some of you probably know that have flooded. If it doesn't stop raining I may in that club and it's not one I want to be in.

    Here is the street behind my house.

    I will be there Chris. I planned to head over there this week to pick up Target Alpha. Due to the weather, doubt that will happen.
