Quoted from PinballRouge:
Joining the group after meeting TigerLaw during a purchase this past week. I’m over in Baton Rouge and got my first project pin a couple of years ago. I’ve never owned or really played pinball but was instantly hooked.
Now I have a couple of EM games in my own collection and enjoy restoration (mostly the electrical part). Looking forward to learning from those more seasoned in the hobby and others local to the Gulf Coast.
Good meeting you and your family yesterday. Welcome to Pinside generally and the gulf coast club specifically. There are a lot good people here to hang out with, learn from, trade games with, and just have a good time with.
We normally have a tourney (which is more of a social gathering than anything else) every month (or so) but things have been on a bit of a hold. We hope to get into the swing of holding events later in the summer but who knows if we will be allowed to do so, the IFPA has put all the tourney director on hold for scheduling events. Try to make it out to these when you can, you’ll see a lot of really cool collections around the state and in SE Texas.
List games on your pinside wishlist that you have an interest in. We do not have a lot of people with em machines in our group, but poboypinball always seems to come across them. He has a great collection of early solid state machines you’d have an interest in as well.
