1. Different spot for the pinball tournaments. It was a choke point to get to the arcade. Perhaps a separate room for the tourneys with tables & chairs to relax?
We have no extra rooms. If we did, I would have filled them ten times over.
Having said that, the door before the pinball tournaments was open all weekend, so you never HAD to walk through there. I was actually sort of baffled, last year we did the same set up and didn't have major issues, this year it seemed that everyone wanted to walk through there all the time. I don't know if there is a better solution to this right now, but it's on the radar.
The discussion for a number of years has been to essentially create another tent that would be a music and food tent, and you saw some of the starts of that this year with the MGC Music stage. There are lots of problems with this however, and I'd be lying if I thought that would happen in 2016.

3. Would love to see more part variety among the pinball/arcade vendors. Not practical to bring a ramp for pin game Xyz, but would have loved to have picked up some switches, etc. I should have ordered in advance from Marco & just picked it up there. Still, I have quite a few LEDs to work with now.
It's always tough to know what to bring to sell, and I can say that as a video game vendor. A few years ago, we brought a TON of 2600 games to sell (probably 500ish), and we sold literally two all weekend. The following year, we brought about 25, sold all but one and had people asking us for more all weekend. I think if anything, pinball parts are even harder to bring due to the specific nature. I still managed to get some stuff though
Having said that, if there are any parts vendors you would like to see there, I'd suggest contacting them and asking them if they would consider going, and then support the ones that do show up when they arrive.
