gotta have it !

#505 2 years ago

Okay, now that's AWESOME. Finally, a TPF shirt for me that isn't black. I'm in.

#506 2 years ago

was just going to request a black version

#507 2 years ago

I am planning on coming to TPF for 2017. 2016 was my first. I drive a station wagon and could transport one EM or early solid state pin (the head has to come off) from Wichita to Frisco or Frisco to Wichita. I would need some cash to pay for some of the gas.

I can veer off of the straight route between here and there for some time and gas compensation.

I have family in Arlington and will be staying for a few days so any return transport would be delayed.

I have moved seven pins in my vehicle without problems and with no breakage.

Anyone who is interested can PM me and we can discuss details. First come, first served.

Thank you to everyone that voted! TPF2017 came in first and will be a PAPA Circuit event!

#510 2 years ago

that's unexpected and crazy. Wonder if the 300+ people that voted for TPF to be a circuit event that can't get into the tourney thought about that.

#511 2 years ago

Any idea when the game list for the tourney will be released?

Soon....we are finishing that up now....

#513 2 years ago

Call for volunteers!
We have lots of spots to fill and can use all the help. Time slots on the main floor start at 2 hours, and at 4 hours, volunteers begin earning incentives... t-shirts, TPF bucks, an upgraded pass (if applicable), a free autograph or photo with Sam J. Jones... all the way up to a challenge coin!

You can get all the details (and links) on our volunteer page.

Help us make #TPF2017 awesome!

Love the shirt! Would also vote for black over gray...

Tax refund came in overnight, truck reserved. Game on.

#517 2 years ago

I'm happy to see an awesome shirt that's NOT on black for a change. White's always my preference, but grey is a decent compromise. Now, pink... TOTALLYWOULDHAPPEN.

I find that situation amusing as well. But honestly, it's all neener neener neener because I have my entry ticket and have had it for a while.

My experience is "Big" is status quo for TPF.

Side note, it was about this time last year that the 2017 thread started - is there a 2018 thread yet?

-Rob
-visit me at TPF! or at http://www.kahr.us to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC pinball resets or for my Pinball 2000 H+V video sync adapter kit

#532 2 years ago

I make a motion that the official 2018 TPF thread not be started until the Monday after the Houston Arcade and Pinball Expo in mid Nov.

Flying out to Texas for vacation march 22-28. I'll be attending the fest just Saturday I believe. Looking forward to playing lots of pinball and the Cassandra Peterson panel. Flying into Houston and road tripping up to the fest. Begining to map out stops and detours, any suggestions?

#540 2 years ago

All items in the Third Coast Pinball store (except T-shirts) have a variation for pickup at TPF. No shipping means you can save a couple of bucks and stock up on all your rebuild and repair supplies! I may have some stock at the Saturday swap meet but it will have Texas state taxes added on for all of you out-of-staters. (8.25%!) Stop by anyways, say hi or howdy and see what's in the store! See y'all at the show!

PS - Space Invaders the Pin, Eight Ball Deluxe the '84 edition and Super Straight the Acrylic Pinball Project will all be there. Looks to be a great show!

We will be bringing some of my WPC speed wedges for those who have a lowered ball trough. Look for us in Vector area and they will be there.

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1627116

It's a friction fit part and easily removable.

Also let me know if you have a Gottlieb System 3 and want one of these replacement brackets for the ball trough switch holder. Commonly, a broken part as it is just a weak design.

We've been building our inventory for the show and will have just about all of our mods for sale, obviously in limited quantities. If anyone wants something for the show, please let us know and we will bring it for you, otherwise it will be first come, first served. Our show pricing will be the same as our website, which is already quite reasonable, but you'll be able to get it there and then directly.

Www.lermods.com

Hopefully TSA doesn't give us a hard time.
