Hey Team EM-sters going to TPF...

Our Memphis pinball pal David Yopp is whipping up a last-second batch of tees:

reelin2 (resized).jpg

IF you want one for TPF, you will need to send him a PM - dyopp21

All orders must be in by 5PM CST tomorrow (3/13). If you want one, I suggest not waiting until the last minute!

Tell me about the official Tournament. If you are on the waitlist, how/when do you find out if there is a spot available?

Ping snailman. He is the TD. My understanding is that he will contact you when a spot opens up.

Just a reminder to stop by our "Everything's Bigger in Texas" reveal at TPF and have a few games on Baywatch! While you're there, pick up one of these nifty pinball keylights! Perfect for storing coin door keys and finding stuff in the dark, plus it's FREE!

For the “Vegemite Curious” I’m brining a box of 90 sachets to try out at breakfast, or any time of you hit me up. Just look for Dr John (sadly Emily won’t be coming because of school).

Oh man. Me and quiddity need to track you down on friday! We won't be staying at the hotel but I plan on being there pretty early as I need to unload a game for someone that's buying it and get my packet for my game that someone else is bringing from out of state plus the pinside meetup.

Stopping in Tucson for the night. D and D pinball is closed today. There are so many bars around the place, though. Surly Wench. Bison Witches. The Barn, Tall boys. FlyCatchers, Mr Head's. Not so sure about some of these.. I think I'll try the solar powered Astronomy themed Sky Bar. Oh, and if I get enough liquid courage, there are at least a dozen tattoo shops within blocks of this place. TPF or Bust tattoo??

All packed up.. 5 Star Trek machines are in the box truck.
Now I'm bored. <Sigh>
Guess I go fire up RFM since its my only game standing (not going to TPF).

#1124 2 years ago

I'm such a buffoon sometimes - today I got two notices from hotels telling me to get ready for my trip. Fortunately I could cancel one without incurring a charge. So, if you need a room at Hyatt House one just opened up. Maybe I just get overly excited about the show - last year I booked airfare twice. Fortunately Southwest is very accommodating with changes so I ended up with a credit that I used to go to New Orleans last September. Anyway, keep the packing and traveling stories coming - they are great to follow!

I packed up the inventory suitcase and it came in at 46 pounds - just under Southwest's allowance. I was able to squeeze 8 of the new Skee Display sets in there so be sure to come by the booth and check them out.

If you’re a Costco member try their travel site for car rentals. Best rates, free second driver, fully cancelable.

Flew in to DFW yesterday. First stop after checking in at the hotel was Cidercade. Very nice place. Some very nice ciders. Lots of video games, about 18 modern pins including Houdini. Will write a small report for the Pinball Magazine website. Today heading to Mesquite, Garland and Richardson.

I'm partial to the Tucson half and half with the bacon potato soup. But, if LTG has been to Bison Witches and is giving suggestions, he's alright with me.

labnip doesnt count like real people cause he is too excited. it starts Friday not Thursday.

I respectfully disagree.....

#1143 2 years ago
Quoted from MattS:

I respectfully disagree.....

my rebuttal would be good luck getting into a show and playing games that doesnt open until 5pm on friday. unless you are in the tournament and can play your games starting at 9 I believe.

being in texas does not mean tpf has started

#1144 2 years ago

When does load in start on Thursday? I can't seem to find the instructions on the website or in my email.

Well in my book the show starts as soon as I am at the hotel with a cold beverage in hand which should be around 6pm on Thursday.

#1147 2 years ago
Quoted from mab487:

Officially noon. Should be able to load in earlier but I'm not sure if they will be ready to inventory games.

"Show set-up officially begins at noon on Thursday, March 15th until 11pm. You may arrive earlier, but we will still be setting up the electrical and drapery so you may just be sitting around waiting. The ballroom will re-open for continued set-up on Friday morning at 7 am, March 16th.

We encourage early arrival for load-in and set-up. Friday morning is good; Thursday is better."

I was wondering that also . We are at the Hyatt across the street.

#1149 2 years ago

My flight is getting in around midnight tomorrow evening, anyone else coming in late night that wants to uber over to the hotel?
