    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    What's everyone up to this weekend? Any pinball related activities going on?

    Not here. We have a family wedding in Houston requiring a hotel stay.

    However we did have our first successful test on our Twitch Stream.
    So that will be happening very soon. Perhaps Sunday night.
    We will post up when it will happen.
    Our Twitch channel link is www.twitch.tv/thepinballmafia

    Will you be stopping for refreshments at any places along the way that have poles and tube dancers?

    Working on a deal for a game. If I make the deal while in Mexico, but the game is in the USA, is that an international purchase?

    Looks like fun.
    Sad that we will be in Houston but can't make it.

    #364 3 years ago

    i'm excited for the mystery knockout format. the match play tournaments have become so cutthroat that you pretty much have to get 1st or 2nd in every round to make the A division.

    #366 3 years ago

    Tigerlaw Here's a fix for that piano problem you have lol

    Sept 24 looks like my best day for a tournament in Shreveport. I'm going to reach out to a few folks to nail down the format and time.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    Hey everybody! I'm new to the pinball sickness. I live in SETX. My name is Seth. Don't know a lot about pinball and all its jargon and abbreviations but I do know I love the silver ball.

    Here's a shot of my first owned machine yesterday as my 2 oldest kids played their first round of pinball ever!?

    Welcome to the club. Come to Lake Charles for the tournament on August 13 (it is adults only by the way) and meet the gang.

    #372 3 years ago

    I have been chatting with Leakyfaucet a bit.
    Welcome to the group Seth.
    You will find everyone in here very friendly and helpful.
    And that Caberet looks really nice.

    If I can I definitely will! My kids are still a bit too young and wild to bring to functions and the functions still be functional anyway. My wife is still in a little bit of shock that there is a huge machine in the living room. Gotta smooth things with her before I drag her all over with me to pinball functions?

    Welcome to your new addiction pinball machines are like potato chips you can't just have 1. I told that to my insurance lady once when I added a third bike to my policy said you just can't have 1. I started with an EM electric mechanical and still have it before you know you will be looking for game 2....

    #376 3 years ago

    Welcome to the madness Seth. Awesome moment to capture with photos. That's a keeper picture.

    The art on the backglass is sorta funny; the lady is so smoking hot that the waiter can't even pour the drink properly.

    Five pop bumpers is cool.

    Cabaret was William's 1st machine produced (late 1968/early 1969) to have the up-post between the flippers.
    Chicago Coin came out with this feature earlier in 1968, but Williams patented it.

    There was 3,852 Cabaret pinball machines produced, so it is not rare. Yours seems to be in good condition.

    Thanks! I'm glad I stepped back and thought to take it! I wish I had one of the first quarter I put in the Addams family back in 93-94

    I'm looking forward to it.

    If it fits your schedule, perhaps consider starting the tournament between 1 and 3 pm.
    That gives the out-of-town / out-of-state players time to drive to your place, and time to drive home later.
    For example: If tournament is to start at say 2 pm, then let people start arriving between Noon to 1:45 pm to relax for a bit and practices a few games before tournament start time.

    Jodester will be the TD for the gathering. We will set the format and time to best accomodate the group. I'll put this on the FB page as well.

    Hey now!!

    #386 3 years ago

    I'm hoping to make that Aug. 13th tourney!

    Gambling and pinball with the pinside crew. What's not to like!

    #387 3 years ago

    Any GC scores yet this weekend?

    #388 3 years ago

    Red River Replay Sept 24th added to Pinside events!

    Are we doing best 2 our of 3, double elimination?

    I need to put the event on the IFPA website.

    #390 3 years ago

    Could do best 3 out of 5 matches on winners side of the bracket, and best 2 of 3 matches on losers side of bracket. I like dbl elim format.

    Tournament can get really long as we saw at Josh's with the format we used. It really makes it rough on those driving 4 to 5 hours.

    #392 3 years ago

    Thought you would like that compromise, since it was the losers side of bracket that slowed things up at the July tournament.
    Less points will be earned when less games being played. Just something to keep in mind.

    Also,...thoughts on side tournament for the RRR event? Have one? or skip it to save time?

    #393 3 years ago

    Congrats to Preston for taking home the B Division Championship from Pinburgh this weekend. GCPC adds another notch in our belt!

    #394 3 years ago

    It was an epic 4 days.
    Just to get to play pinball along side of all the greats would have been fun enough.
    But to have Preston take first place in B was as good as it gets.
    Can't wait to do it all again next year.

    Really! 6' 10" ? 7 foot?

    #398 3 years ago

    Yes, and congrats to Preston! Hope to meet you soon!

    Jodester has talked PavBall and I into dragging our HUO clear coated Doctor Who from the office and having it in the Romp in the Swamp.

    The settings will be brutal on Doctor Who. A two second ball save only.
