I am pleased to announce that there will be a brand new pinball show in Saratoga Springs, NY on Saturday August 12th, 11AM-9PM!
Details about the show can be found at http://pinballsaratoga.com
It will be held at the Saratoga Regional YMCA at 290 West Ave in Saratoga Springs, NY. The staff at the Y are very excited to be hosting this event.

The idea was to have a small local show since there's not much in terms of pinball in this area. However, this show will only be fun and successful if collectors and enthusiasts from the area bring games for everyone to enjoy.
So, if you would like to bring a game (or several), the registration details are available here:
The setup time for the show will be on Friday from 7PM to 10PM, and Saturday from 8AM to 11AM. The doors will then open to the public at 11AM and will close at 9PM. Break-down will happen between 9PM and 11PM on Saturday night, and Sunday morning between 8AM and noon.
Note that there will be a cap of 50 games for this year, but with the possibility for expansion next year if there is demand for it. Arcade games are welcome as well.
If you have rubber feet/footies/castors for your game, please bring them. The floor in the room is wood and may cause games to slide around somewhat. Rubber pads will be provided if you do not already have rubber feet/footies/castors for your game(s).
There will be vendor and flea market spaces available. Spaces are priced low enough to attract anyone who might not feel they have quite enough stuff to make it worthwhile for one of the larger shows. A space also includes a table and chairs at no extra cost. Details are available here:
This show will be run more or less like most other shows, just scaled down somewhat. So, if you have been to other shows before, many of the same familiar rules and guidelines will apply.
If you have not been to the Saratoga area before, there are several downtown attractions, shops, restaurants, and a bustling night life just 5 minutes away. Some details are here:
Comments, questions, and suggestions are welcome.
Hope to see everyone at the show and looking forward to see what games get registered and show up!
By bringing a clean, working game to the show for free play, you will be entered into the raffle for a chance to win one of the six $25 gift certificates available! There are four $25 Pinball Life gift certificates and two $25 Pinitech gift certificates that a raffle winner can choose from.
If you register a game before midnight on Wednesday 8/9, you will be eligible for the $100 free play grand prize raffle which can be used at http://pinitech.com!
Each game you bring will count as a raffle entry, so bringing more than one game will increase your chances of winning.
Gift certificates will be limited to one per winner. The gift certificate will be awarded to the person who originally registered the game.
