I have a few minutes so here you go ...
I'm an old school bingo guy.
Many years ago I was trying to get new blood into this dying facet of the pinball hobby and having no success.
I met Nick who was into video pinball and had him come play real games and introduced him to bingos. He didn't get it ...'they're too cerebral for me" ...
I kept having him over - he'd play my flipper pins then I'd take him out back and put him back on my bingos... after several sessions, one night he hit a couple of big wins on my Golden Gate and I watched the light turn on ... "I GET IT"! -
Youthful enthusiasm kicked in.
I told him of my quest for new blood and that since us old guys won't be around that much longer I wanted HIM to be the one that brought the fascinating world of Bingo Pinball to the next generation.
I encouraged him with ideas of things I didn't have time (or know-how) that might help.
I casually mentioned podcasts might be a good way at one point - he started one.
I could tell he was eager to make a name for himself in the bingo world and he has.
Whether he remembers it or not I mentioned the Bingo Row idea at York - called Rich with the idea - told Nick and he took over (fine with me cuz I'm busy).
He's making a bingo emulator - guess who planed that idea... = )
I've had a very strong influence on Nick and can fondly call Nick my Bingo Pinball offspring ... so through his new found mission of bringing bingos to a next generation of players with all of his hard work ... he has now influenced you ... Hence you are now my "Bingo Grandson" (hoping for may more too ... = )

Happy Tilting !!
