    Hello everyone! Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Keith, and I live in southwest Va. I am 34 married with 2 young boys. I have recently rekindled my love for pinball, and can't wait to start a collection. You guys have a great site here and I have really enjoyed reading through the forums. I look forward to my future in this hobby, and to making some new friends here at pinside!

    Thanks for the warm welcome guy's! I use to spend a lot of time near Radford at NRV speedway we ran there for about 3 years. I am in Galax so not far away at all.

    Well right now is not the best time to start this, my wife just quit her job to start her own thing, so money is a little tight. My love for pinball started with the Adams Family at our movie theater, so I would love to have it someday, but for now I would like to have a 90's game. Whatever I can find for a good price with a theme I can live with would do just fine.

    Nice to meet you tonight Keith and your lady friend, please drop back buy again and bring the kids nest time or a large Pinside group. Hope you all made it back safe as it starting storming here. I noticed IM had a ball stuck near the figure took glass off issue fixes. It had never done that yet. It did drop power on flippers during play. Something else to check out later.

    Be safe!

    Hello from Bassett, VA. Only about 1.5 hours away!

    Hello from Va beach. Once you get your first pin you will quickly want more.

    Heyas, from Lexington VA!

    Quoted from Rocketrob:

    Once you get your first pin you will quickly want more.

    Rocketrob took the words right out of my mouth! I thought I would only want ONE pin, especially knowing how much they cost. Well, that was 4 years ago, and I currently have 11 in my home and have had at least 20+. Have lost count!

    For a starter pin, you might want a Fish Tales. There are plenty of them out there and can be had as low as $1,400 up to $2,400, depending on the condition. That was my second pin and I am convinced I will never sell it. Lot's of action and never gets old.

    Hello from North Jersey and welcome to Pinside!

    #37 5 years ago

    Hello from Virginia Beach. Start planning on your game room expansion, enough is never enough!

    #38 5 years ago

    Thank's Buddy! Man we had a blast!!! You have an awesome drive-in, and the pin-cade is unbelievable! Lol, sorry about the stuck ball in IM that is on me. I looked for you to let you know, but was unable to find you. Your hospitality was more than gracious! It was a pleasure meeting you, and I really appreciate you sharing your pinball collection with us. We will defiantly be back to enjoy some more pinball action, and to hopefully get to take in a movie next time. We were having such a good time playing your machines we lost track of time, and missed all but about 30 mins of ''Hercules''. We talked on the way home about your deal on the guest room, and we would defiantly take you up on that, if you decide to start doing that agin. We missed all the rain on the way home, and had a pretty good drive back, with having the road to ourselves for most of the ride. I will try and upload my pics of your game room and post them up here in a new thread when I get a chance. Once agin, thank you so much for your hospitality, and sharing your love for pinball with so many people!
