23 days !!!

#558 2 years ago

So here we are in March - the month of the Texas Pinball Festival is upon us! Feels good... but busy. I'm building a mock-up of this year's booth in my basement and figuring out how to pack it all up into my travel bags.

Don't forget - if you have a 2016 edition Pro daughterboard bring it to the show - I will update it to the new 2017 code so it has all the newest power supply indications for only $10. The only way to get an upgrade is to meet me at one of the shows I attend.

22 days !

Your daily countdown makes me both excited and stressed. I have too many projects to finish before heading the Texas.

Same here, a lot to get finished up and time is ticking away. Luckily I'm a teacher and we are on spring break the 13-17th, so that should help.

#562 2 years ago

Anyone know how many Alien machines will be playable? super excited to play that one!

#563 2 years ago

Great stuff and will get to a Texas show in the next year or 2.

Would of loved a coin and shirt from this year but postage is super pricey sadly - have a great show.

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

Highway or Cointaker (I believe they are still the dist for them) would be the ones to know. Last year they had 2 Full Throttles to play and about half a dozen in boxes for sale.

#565 2 years ago

If anyone knows of rooms at the venue that will not be used, please PM me

I want to be there from FRI 3/24 - SUN 3/26

Right on, yeah I was there last year, I think we actually played together in the final 16 round of the tournament with Jack and Robert (I'm Dave from Colorado) Unless I'm mistaken on who you are lol

Enjoyed checking out Full Throttle last year, but Alien looks to be a real winner! Looking forward to seeing all the great people I met last year again!

As of yesterday there were still rooms at Hilton Garden Inn and Hyatt House across the street. From the front door of these hotels to the TPF area of the convention center are a similar distance to that of the onsite Embassy Suites rooms.

#568 2 years ago

We are staying at the Wyndham a few miles down the road. I think our cost was $85/night all in.

Yeah, that's me. Still feeling that butt kicking you and Robert put on me. Going to be some good players there this year (including you) so I'm just praying to qualify. Not counting on it but should be fun either way.

I'll be trying to come in last place. I feel like that's in my wheelhouse.

Quoted from Nevus:

Mike are you bringing a game this year?

Nevus,

Have not yet signed up to bring a machine. Call me when you get a chance.
I'm not quite as good at burning the candle at both ends for 3 days straight like I use to do yrs ago.
I signed up to do the Day-1 (Thur Mar 23rd) portion of the 4-day event called Paddle Bayou Lafourche.
So, by the time I get home and unload kayak and gear, then would have to load up a pinball machine and leave by 3 am and drive to Frisco, to arrive in time to set up before Fri Noon.

So many social engagements, so little time.

I am going to bring a game for the first time this year but I'm not sure which game I will bring. Can I / should I register now and possibly change the game later or should I wait until I'm sure which game I will bring? Is it easy to change? How much does it matter?

Yes. Register now. Choose the games you intend to bring.

If they change before TPF, just let the organizers know.

Most important thing is to get registered so that you get your perks for bringing a game.

Find me a buyer for my Pro-Football and/or Top Score before the show, and I'll add my Bally Dixieland to that lineup.

The Gulf Coast and ArkLaTex clubs usually have a small section set aside by Kim VanderVeen . If you would like to have you games in our section, please put it in your registration and Kim will know how much room to set aside for us. It's always nice to meet new folks and have people help keep an eye out for your games.

Chris

#577 2 years ago

I registered both of our games under Gulf Coast.
Looks like Game of Thrones will be in our booth, but Jacks Open got requested for the tourney area.

You should set up a "what I did in Texas today" thread for your 3-week journey. Did you end up getting a car from Turo.com?

I only see one JJP Dialed In on the game list. I'm hoping there will be more than one at the show, if not that is going to be one long line....

Agreed. But that's better than not having it at all.

Oh I'm not complaining, I'm actually looking forward to playing it!!

I've said before that I wish JJP would have a bigger presence at shows. They need a Marco style distributor booth with multiple games.

I'm really looking forward to playing Dialed In.

Yeah, I think I'll do another road trip thread. Should give people a good tour around Texas.

I ended up with a good deal from Airport Rentals. Got a "new" Camry from Europcar for about $30 USD per day all in, which I thought was pretty good.

Really want to buy a Fireball 2 while I'm in Texas....let me know if you have one....also, I noticed there is one on Dallas Craigslist if anyone wants to help a guy out.

#592 2 years ago

Is there a certain cut-off date that we need to keep in mind if we are thinking about registering to bring a pinball machine to TPF-2017?

From reading info online on TPF website, I see that we need to be set up ready to go by Fri Mar 24th, 4 pm.

#594 2 years ago

Awesome... looking forward to seeing EdR at the show!
Find me... and we'll play a game or three on Star Trek: The Mirror Universe.

#595 2 years ago

Exhibitors can register online up to showtime or just show up with your game and we'll get you in. Tuesday, March 7th is the cutoff to ensure you receive a name badge as we have to get those printed, sorted, etc.

Friend sent this link to my wife, didn't even recognize me. Hilarious!
