    I know I'm late posting but I wanted to thank Josh for hosting a great tournament, Mike for running it, and everyone else that was involved. Glad everyone that came from out of state, decided to make the drive. It was not fun getting in at 1:30 (especially for Kevin since he was driving ) but, it was well worth it. I didn't do as well as in the tournament as I would have liked but I always enjoy talking and visiting and meeting new people as much or more than the tourney. Hope I can see you all again on the 13th.

    Wow! Those look great! Well Done!

    But holy hell, that thing is crazy loud and shakes your fillings out. Lol
    It will be for sale soon as I have a normal Pinball life shaker on the way.

    Get you one of these and put on that Cointaker motor. I put one on my TWD and it made all the difference in the world. Now I can adjust it to whatever intensity I want.

    These things keep managing to find a way into may vehicle also. I'll post some more pics later when I get it setup. Not a title I was looking for but I couldn't pass on it for the price and the shape it was in.

    Hey guys, new to the scene, up in North LA. Took the family to the TPF this past weekend, it was great. Hope to meet you guys soon...

    Welcome Jamie! Glad to have you here. I wish I could have met you at TPF. I am from the Jackson, MS area and there is not much going on here with pinball but I hope to change that soon. I come to LA for pinball events a good bit, so I hope to meet you soon.

    I thought I would post a few pics of my gameroom building project. It seems like it has taken forever to get to this point because of one thing or another (Why are building projects such a headache?) It will probably be slow, but hopefully steady, for the rest of it because I am trying to do as much of it myself as I can. I hope to start having some Mississippi tournaments and maybe even a league when it is finished.

    Nice pickup TigerLaw! If Pav ever gets tired of it, you've already got a buyer because Jessica loves that game too! She might make me take a trip to the LC area next time there is a tournament just so she can play it LOL.

    So sad I can't make Saturday because of another event I have to attend. I was planning on coming but this popped up. Hope y'all have a blast and maybe I can make the next one. Hopefully, I'll have my gameroom done soon and you all can come my way.

    I want a Deadpool too! Alas, my money is all tied up in my building project
    However, it is coming along and shouldn't be too much longer. I've got some of my best people working on it

    Quoted from Jodester:

    Is that a 3 ton mini-split unit on the wall for cooling? I went 3 ton and it's too much. I should have gone smaller.

    The condenser is a 3 ton unit. I have it split into 2 tons for the main room and 1 ton in the workshop.

    #2988 1 year ago
    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Is 2 ton of AC big enough for that space.

    According to my AC guy, it is perfect. He ran all kinds of calculations according to room size, ceiling height, R value of insulation, number of people that might be in there at one time, etc.

    Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

    Now that the cost of solar panels and batteries has come down a lot in the past few years, at some point in future you may want to add some of that.

    I actually have thought about that. Maybe in the future. It would be nice to have the power company pay me to play pinball.

    Looking forward to the Flowood tourney.

    Me too, just getting a little nervous hoping everything comes together and goes smoothly.

    We are working hard on getting the gameroom all ready to go. It is getting down to the wire now.

    Got a new game tournament ready and working on getting another one going.

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!

    What a great day of pinball! We had an awesome turnout and a lot of fun. Thank you so much for those who could make it and I hope the other can make it next time. Thanks to Mike for being the tournament director for our first tournament and Chris for all the help with score keeping and Cody and Josh for helping keep the machines running smoothly. All and all, I think it went pretty smoothly with minimal issues. We had a lot of first timers to the tournament scene and that was great. I'm already looking forward to the state championship next month.

    Chris, in case you need a head count, there will be 4 of us coming Saturday.

    #3914 8 months ago

    Thanks to Chris for hosting, Jody for scorekeeping, Mike for being TD and to everyone who had a hand in the tournament. Josh, the trophies were awesome! It was a great time. My performance was abysmal, but with the good food, fun and friends there, it didn't matter. Congrats to Tiger and Henry on the big wins!

    Hey everybody. I'm trying to get a head count for the tournament Saturday so if you are coming, please leave a post so I can get a good idea of the number to expect. If you are not coming, there is NO excuse, you are dead to me. But, seriously, I don't want to run out of red beans and rice and pork tenderloin

    Vaughn and I are down for Flowood. Will try to contribute something a bit more "homemade" than Chick-fil-A this time!

    We had a good time and good turnout for the tournament. 27 in the main and 22 in pingolf. Glad some of you could make it and hope the rest of you can join us next time. Hear are a few pictures.

    I posted this on the Dirty South Pinball Facebook page but I know not all of you are members so I thought I would repost here just in case anybody is interested.

    Hey everyone,

    I hope you had a great Labor day weekend! I am planing to have a run of t shirts done soon. They will be similar, but not exactly the same, to the sample ones we had made that you may have seen some of us wearing at one of the tournaments. Also, the shirt color or colors have not been decided. Best guess on price will be between $15 and $18 for S,M,L and XL and a couple bucks more for XXL and XXXL. If you think you might like one, post here or send me a private message with the size you would want.

    ***This in no way obligates you to get one, I am just trying to get an idea of how many to order and how many of each size.***

    I will post the proofs of the new shirt when I get them from the printer.

    #4203 3 months ago

    I was just curious about the last RRR results. The main tournament showed up on the IFPA site about a week or more ago but the pingolf results never did.

    #4205 3 months ago

    No problem at all. Just wondering if there was an issue. I was kinda hoping they got lost because my performance in the pingolf could only bring my ranking down.

    #4223 3 months ago

    I'll take 2 Medium t shirts please.

    #4235 3 months ago
    Quoted from EasternBloc:

    I'll be bringing my crew over to Jackson - costumes and all!

    Yay, I'm glad that there will be at least one other bunch dressed up LOL!
