Attention Pinsiders! I will soon be traveling across the USA (and Canada!) on a shoestring budget to fix YOUR EM pinball machines, teach YOU how to maintain them, and talk about your hobby. The result will be livestreamed/Facebooked/Pinsided along the way or possibly published in an upcoming book.
If you'd like to be part of "Nic's North American Pinball Tour" (NNAPT), reply here with your location and thoughts. I figure it will work like this: In exchange for putting me up for the night and contributing to the trip, I will spend an entire 8-hour day (or perhaps two sequential evenings if that works better)... fixing, teaching, anything you like. I will have sample mechs and replacement parts with me just in case.
I could also do a group class along the way if enough people are interested.
Start date will be after the Texas Pinball Festival, March 28th.
Sound like fun? LET'S DO THIS!
BTW just created a FB page to track this as well... https://www.facebook.com/pinballtour
For those who cannot get involved directly but would like to support the tour, I have created a Gofundme link below. No "goal" set... I'll just use whatever I get to extend the tour as far as possible. Thx!
And hey! Our own Ryan Claytor is currently offering pre-orders for tour tees! If you want one, be sure to get it before the tour starts!
