    Heading down there for my first time at this show... looking forward to it.
    Coming down with an empty pickup, keeping an eye out for cheap projects.

    First time at this show...
    Good venue... plenty of room. (this was a huge plus over Chicago Expo & MGC)

    But way too dark. (I'll admit... I do not understand the attraction of playing pinball machines in darkly lit basements either.) I kept tripping over small children.

    Pretty good mix of vendors... could've actually used a few more in all categories.

    The console stuff was ok... (might help to have "how to play" guides with the various machines) (MGC does this portion way better IMO.) But related to the consoles... the people dressing in costumes & contests was an attraction in itself... it was a riot to see.
    Good selection of classic vids too. (sad didn't get a chance on Battlezone... always had someone on it when I walked by) Got a few games in on classic Tron! Even put my initials on Asteroids first thing Friday.

    The pins... way too many machines not even close to being leveled. And while I understand the work involved in bringing machines (as I've done for Expo & MGC for the past several years)... people that just set up and machine and just walk away, irk me. A lot of the machines didn't have contact information on them, to let the own know they were down. (Both Friday at open & Sat at open... machines down/not playing well from the start, and not being attended to.) (In fairness... I've seen this at Chicago Expo too... people bring in a line of machines and some never working.)

    I'll agree... that WCS94 was perfectly LED'd and played great... thanks for bringing that.
    And Phoebe as always great selection...

    Predator... Played ok. I might have liked it more, had it the room not been so dark; that the uncovered super bright LED's in lane guides not been so blinding.

    Entered the pin tourney for the first time... found it smooth & well run. Granted, I only played a couple rounds just for fun, but I thought the organizers did well.

    Overall, a great crowd having fun.
    (If I hadn't blown my pick-ups power steering while down there... It would've been a great trip.)
