    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    How is the work on BSD coming along?

    Ordered a rotten dog mpu on Saturday should be in tomorrow so we will see how that goes.

    Saturday will be a blast looking forward to it. I’ll bring a couple bags of chips and dip.

    #3602 1 year ago

    Also looking forward to Saturday! Haven't yet talked to Cherie about what we might bring.

    #3603 1 year ago

    Hi tigerlaw -- Of your collection, which ones are in Saturday's tourney?

    #3604 1 year ago

    Mark Gunter came to the house today. High Speed is heading to Arkansas to participate in the SCS.

    I'm looking forward to this weekend. I'll be a spectator.

    #3605 1 year ago

    I can bake a box of my famous chocolate chip cookies (if Walmart still sells them) and bring to the tourney.

    Quoted from scottslash:

    which ones are in Saturday's tourney?

    scottslash,

    I can clarify about some of the machines in the tournament, but TigerLaw and PavBall can give a more complete answer.
    * Varkon will only be in the side tournament, and will not be in the LA State Championship.
    * Note: Not all machines listed in his current collection in his Pinside profile will be in the tournament,
    due to some machines are in a different location.
    * I believe Met, Batman, Simpsons, Addams, X-Men, TNA, AFMr, Medusa, Sorcerer, Quicksilver, TWD, and Iron Maiden are all tournament machines.

    #3607 1 year ago
    Quoted from PavBall:

    No one has mentioned any plans for food for the tournament.

    I stopped at the store and picked up some snacks such as chips, peanuts, oreo's, and bought some deli meats.
    It seems like most of the stores in Louisiana don't sell Shasta, so I just got a 2-L of Sunkist grape for other players and guests.
    The Pepsi is for me and PattyJ if she shows up.

    #3608 1 year ago

    Clarification on acceptable waiting for a machine to become available to play during the state championships:

    **** copied from a recent IFPA email ****
    A reminder that players can wait as many deep as needed for the game they want to play to become available.

    There's too many shenanigans to be had regarding only allowing "open" games to be played. Players stalling in making choices, running to the bathroom, etc. (this is from personal experience from dealing with 'open only' game choices, believe me)

    Players have battled all year for the right to play what they want to play for these championships. If anyone is concerned about how much that may extend the length of the championship, start your championship earlier in the day.

    Thanks,
    Josh
    **********************************

    We have not had problems in past years, and I don't anticipate having issues this year. Just passing along info from IFPA.

    * Varkon will only be in the side tournament, and will not be in the LA State Championship.

    Varkon may not be available. During testing last night, one of the flippers died. Will work on it Sat morning, but we may have to chose another game for the side tourney. (That game will not be included in tourney lineup and will be available for side tourney play through the day.)

    #3610 1 year ago

    Yea, major bummer about Varkon. It has been such a reliable game for four years...now, four days before the tourney it may be toast and we are not entirely sure what happened to it...a coil locked on we believe but we do not know why.

    We may need a substitute game for the side tourney, we will discuss with pinball-is-great and make a decision Saturday morning.

    #3611 1 year ago

    I booked a room for Henry and I Saturday night. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Side tourney?

    #3613 1 year ago

    Varkon was to be the side tourney. It will end up being another game that will be taken out of the main rotation. That still leaves 11 games for the main.

    #3614 1 year ago

    Thanks didn’t know there was a side tourney.

    Looking forward to hanging out Chris. After I get booted in the first round, we should have plenty of time to chat.

    You guys can talk about your hernias.

    #3617 1 year ago

    Anybody near Houston want a GotG? Seems like a steal to me. houston.craigslist.org link

    #3618 1 year ago

    Hey gang. Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday .
    We are getting ready to list our Aerosmith Pro as a stock machine at $4500 as we need the space yet again.
    So posting it here first before Facebook tonight.
    We are in Beaumont for those that don’t know and of course game can be brought to Lake Charles.

    I was late to the party but great video.

    Quoted from Jodester:

    Thanks .
    Had a lot of fun doing it.
    We will be live streaming it for 2 hours Sunday night.

    They really did an amazing job on this game.
    We had no flaws out of the box and it is stunning.

    #3626 1 year ago

    I’m thinking of having scottslash ‘s TSPP be the side tourney game. I’d like it to be in the main tourney as well though, perhaps it can be. Will discuss with jodester and pinball-is-great and make a decision Saturday.

    Warm up starts at 11:30am I believe. Thanks all.

    I think that is a perfect game for the side tourney. It's out in the foyer and will not cause congestion in the main pinball room.

    #3628 1 year ago

    The ONE game that I know... out of the tournament. But at least it will give me a good shot at winning the side tournament! Honestly guys it’s all the same to me. I just got to give you some crap!

    #3629 1 year ago

    Got some snacks made up for tomorrow.

    We’re bringing a similar veggie tray and a sweet snack mix. Looking forward to the food, fun, and fellowship!

    Feeling healthy just looking at that.

    Henry and I had a great day! Special thanks to all who participated, our hosts and The TD.

    Henry found his happy place with the cookies and twinkies.

    action76 , how did Mississippi’s state championship go yesterday?

    #3637 1 year ago

    Hay guys and girls I have changed my username to something a little more fitting to me and my collection it’s now PoBoyPinball.

    #3638 1 year ago

    Tourney was a blast! Thanks to tigerlaw and pavball for hosting, and pinball-is-great for another bang-up TD job! VERY happy with my 5th place finish and winning the side tourney on TSPP. (Thanks for picking that one!)

    Enjoyed meeting some new folks and catching up with some of the old folks. You know who you are.

    BTW... Do we know who got that GotG in Houston?

    #3639 1 year ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    It went really well. No major issues and everyone had a good time. Had some new faces show up for the side tournament as well.

    Dead around here. Any pinball events or unboxings to post?

    I will post pics if I ever get my MBrLE...

    Sad to say we’ll be moving early this summer. Off to areas unknown...

    I’ll likely be selling (or 2 for 1 swap) some of my games to lighten the load and keep the weight under limits.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at TPF!

    Fine, Star Wars and Black Hole for High Speed.

    #3644 1 year ago

    I wish Mudflaps was staying in LA.
    I hope Black Hole stays in LA, and ends up in LA pinball players gameroom.

    Sorry to hear it. We will miss you.

    #3646 1 year ago

    Mudflaps is leaving N LA later this summer.
    Say it ain't so.
    I think he may have joined the dark side.

    #3647 1 year ago

    Maybe Mudflaps is not who we think he is.
    Maybe he's really an android, or perhaps one of the aliens like in Men in Black movie that can change appearences.

    And what was he really doing on those days when he didnt show up for a pinball tournament? Kids birthday party?, yeah right.
    Probably out in the Matrix somewhere wearing one of those dark suits that the bad guys wear, and saying shit like: "Mr Anderson".

    Ok, Mudflaps. Whatever.
    Probably dresses up like c3po and acts like him when he thinks no one is looking.

    Quick, somebody embed a tracking device on him, or mount one hidden on his car. See if he goes to the Death Star or some other weird place.

    #3648 1 year ago

    We need to have some kind of massive, crazy blowout party before I split.

    Wait. We’re all old. We’ll probably just wind up playing a few games and eating a veggie tray.
