    Quoted from PavBall:

    Why did Preston not play in the Austin Papa tournament?

    It turned out to be a 3 day event. None of us could get that much time.

    #204 3 years ago

    We plan on having people over when the GB premium arrives. Crossing our fingers at we get it in July!

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Man those are cool I like how they look like they let some light through.

    Thanks for the compliment. We spent a long time working on those. We are obviously excited about them. I love photography so it was a fun project to take our own pics. I told my wife I wanted to start printing some of my good pics. I don't think she expected this LOL.

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

    #438 3 years ago

    Well guys sadly I'm out of Romp In Swamp so it is "officially" a tournament for mere mortals now :wink:Seriously I have to drop my daughter off at UT that weekend. I was so bummed when my wife told me a few days ago when the drop off is.

    But on a cool note I'm very proud of my finish in the Pinburgh Match Play Championship. I finished in a tie for 203 out of 700 of the best players the world has to offer. (At least 700 of the best that could make it)

    #440 3 years ago

    I'm not sure. I'll have to ask him.

    #453 3 years ago
    Quoted from PavBall:

    Is Allen on Pinside?

    He is but he isn't lol. He doesn't get on much like Preston doesn't. I don't get on much but I look like a maniac compared to Allen. hahaha

    #459 3 years ago

    Allen said he is coming after he gets off work. Not sure when that will be. Sometimes he works till 3:00

    The live stream was fun! I was wondering how it would turn out but I think it turned out great. We had fun and it was so much fun talking to people as we played. For the record my 14 yr old daughter Kelly never lost a game. I think she finished 3rd or 2nd every time.

    I'm really itching to get some purple armor for our pro now! Plus I've been dying to have sparky painted we just can't decide on what to paint him like. Lately we were leaning towards a Godfather theme since we have the mafia nickname now.

    Leon and I ordered a new Aerosmith Pro yesterday!! I'm super stoked about it! We went with the pro even though we had the money for a premium saved up. The premium and LE don't seem to offer much except the upper playfield which seems useless to me. It is super tight and has 5 little targets you have to cradle the ball and back hand them all. Also I think the premium and LE have a drop target in front of the elevator scoop. So with that in mind we went Pro. I did a real quick mock up of what color we want to powder coat the armor.

    Quoted from Pickle:

    Is there a link or sign up for the tourney on the 30th? Sounds like a fun day trip and me and a friend would like to go. Just need the details.

    We didn't post the entrance fee (we haven't decided it honestly. It's usually between 10-20) The "official" site is here https://www.facebook.com/events/104012616805008/

    If I make changes it will be updated on that page. Hope to see you!!!

    Quoted from Leakyfaucet:

    Hope everyone had a great Easter! We are now up at the hospital expecting baby 4 in a couple of hours!

    Congrats!! So exciting! I mentioned you last night on our live stream of Spider-Man. I was talking about how I recommended it to you for a family purchase since you like Metallica but weren't sure of it fitting in well in your home. At the time last night I completely forgot you were in the club LOL. I'm such a dummy

    #1240 2 years ago
    Quoted from Spg101:

    Hey, planning on trying to meet Leon tomorrow. Hoping to meet more of you. Work sucks, too much to do so little time. Saw a Pin Bot for sale. Guy would take $250 but apparently the head had been cut off at one point and it had no legs. I thought about it and I already have a basket case I'm working on and absolutely no time for that amount of soldering and heat shrink wrapping. Also who knows what was wrong with it prior to the head being severed?!?!?

    Looking forward to meeting you today. - Dennis

    #1246 2 years ago

    We definitely need to work it out to have a pinball party/BBQ soon!!!

    #1257 2 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Totally right. Perhaps add a few bucks to the tourney entry fee to cover the food?

    I was already thinking of adding a small fee for the gumbo and supplies. I think we really need to to help defer cost of both now. What do you guys think is a fair amount for food?

    Quoted from Arcade:

    Hey Seth, I just saw that a BBQ place in Tomball made Texas Monthlys top 10.
    It is called the Tejas Chocolate Craftery.
    Have you tried it yet?

    I just had it this weekend. Awesome!

    Spending Father's Day at a pinball tournament is my kind of Father's Day!!! Can't wait!

    #1568 2 years ago

    Tiger I think you have the only photo of Josh and I as the final two for the Project Pinball Tournament. We posed for a pic with someone lol.

    #1579 2 years ago

    Tiger before you leave do you have the pic of Josh and I from the finals of the Project Pinball Tournament? Have a great trip!!!

    #1589 2 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Yea, I've been meaning to post the results of the overflow tourney. PavBall has been on my case about it. I'll get it done on Wednesday.

    Um, yeah you will lol. I won that thing and need my points

    Btw, Thanks for posting the pictures.

    #1602 2 years ago

    Yeah the Oil City Open is always in October. We moved it up a week or two due to the Houston reschedule of Arcade Expo but kept it in October. I can't go to a tournament on the 9th or the weekend near the 23rd. So the first one or the 16th so far for me. I don't wan't to miss this one as it is my first title to defend.

    Edit: Tiger not sure if we are going but if we do you can tag along for sure.

    #1611 2 years ago

    PLEASE upload the results!!

    #1638 2 years ago
    Quoted from Jodester:

    LOL! Maybe we should change that rule to never more than 3 games at a time. We gotta let everybody else have a shot at the games for sale. (Looking at you Monclas)

    What can I say? We haven't had hardly any project machines in a while then one week it rained machines lol.

    #1639 2 years ago

    Also, Noah we are probably going to sell Flipper Parade after we stream it. It's almost 100% now.

    #1652 2 years ago
    Quoted from Jodester:

    It really stinks that I work the weekend of Josh's tourney. My only consolation is that the Hobbit may be here by then.
    Looks like GoT will be gone on Saturday too. Now I need to decide what to do with my spare pinball cash. Do I buy an Aerosmith or a Houdini or the infamous Star Wars...hmmm...
    I will plan all my free time in the Shire once I get off work....

    Thought you were looking for a Spiderman?
