Quoted from ralphwiggum:
If there are 500 machines in the room, I would expect to see 500 people, I am not sure how it could be any more simple.
The freeloaders are the guys that sneak in without a valid wristband, make their own fake ones, just skirt the security, etc...
Happens every year and sadly a few that are regulars in the pinball community but not supporting the show (nor are their buddies and then giving them wristbands)
You should 100% get a wristband for each game you bring and do what you want with them.
I was also super happy to see guys like Troy/KP that bring tons of games telling people to step up and help if they wanted a band. Some of those guys have been very giving (their choice but I think it is much better for the show if all the regional people that can bring, actually do so) and I like seeing them tell people to either buy one of their games to get a pass or step up and do some work to earn it.
I hope the show is bigger and even better this year. The only way that happens if we all step up to make it happen.
I always commend you Tim for always being awesome and bringing mutliple games!
