    What's the concensus on affordable close hotel?

    #402 1 year ago

    I will be at expo. Looking forward to seeing everyone! Bringing a trailer full of restored games for the freeplay room (all forsale). The HUO Simpsons Party Pinball, Goldeneye, Bally Strikes and Spares, Maximum Force Arcade & Neogeo Arcade. See You There!

    #403 1 year ago

    Can't wait for the new and improved EXPO. Got cash in hand and looking to spend!

    #404 1 year ago

    I'm looking to hire someone who has room to bring a pin back to Michigan from Expo.

    Is anyone coming to Expo who is coming back to or very near Michigan and has room to bring a game back?

    If so, please PM me!

    #405 1 year ago

    never been to this show. Thinking about flying out from philly in the morning Friday spending a day and flying back. Not optimal but I have an event on Saturday so can’t make the drive. my question is whether there are any feasible options should I happen to find something I just have to have?

    #406 1 year ago

    I have groupon tickets to the expo this week.Is there anything to do Wednesday?

    #407 1 year ago

    ^^^ no wedesday is set up only

    It's EXPO week

    #408 1 year ago
    Quoted from cavalier88z24:

    ^^^ no wedesday is set up only

    I’ve heard conflicting stories on set up Wednesday - hit or miss. I’ll be setting up Thursday.

    #409 1 year ago

    I have a room at the Westin and was supposed to share this with to split costs - does anyone still need somewhere to stay? Thursday-Sunday morning

    #410 1 year ago
    Quoted from cavalier88z24:

    ^^^ no wedesday is set up only

    I'm scheduled to work for game check-in on wednesday from 11am-1pm, so with that said game setup and check in DOES start on wednesday

    #411 1 year ago

    Also on Wednesday there is a Bumper Blast Party for those that paid admission and a free catered meal too. Usually in the evening. You can play the games in the freeplay hall for a few hours.

    #412 1 year ago

    We’ve now passed the point where we can bring Pinshakers shaker motors to expo. Pinshakers sold out of these at this past weekend’s York show, we have maybe 7 kits left. If you buy at the show with cash or Zelle, we will ship them to you for free next week.

    Quoted from jellikit:

    I want to invite everyone at Expo to checkout the Silent Auction we will be having at the Project Pinball booth. All proceeds go to benefit Advocate Children's Hospital in Park Ridge, IL. Wonderful donations continue coming in from all over the community and beyond. If you'd like to donate, please message me. Thanks![quoted image]

    Is Kingpin going to be there and will there be a seminar regarding the Kingpin remake progress?

    #423 1 year ago
    Quoted from PaulCoff:

    will there be a seminar regarding the Kingpin remake progress?

    Not on the schedule.

    No idea if they'll have a game there or not. I hope so.

    A Pinside party would be cool. Many (most?) of us have never met. Has a Pinside party happened before? Complete with name tags featuring our Pinside monikers.

    Yes. I will post #LTG’s room number Thursday night. Parties start at 1 am you just have to keep knocking on the door as the party gets loud sometimes but keep knocking! They are up late with Fred Young doing Punchy the Clown call outs.

    You guys are going to have a blast!! Rock it out. I’m stuck in Vegas this week. I know poor me!

    Will be watching this thread for updates and pictures!!

    Be safe and have fun all!!

    #429 1 year ago

    I have a question. I've never been to this show and if I come I can only come on Thursday. Can you buy a game from either a vendor or private seller and remove it Thursday night? Does anyone know?

    Thanks in advance.

    #430 1 year ago

    Oh my God. Pinside party? When I close my eyes this is what I imagine a Pinside party would look like:

    Dudes. Lots of dudes getting drunk and high fiving cuz it's the best time of their lives. Also people waiting to play pinball with either their arms crossed or with their hands firmly planted in the pockets of their jorts (shirt tucked in with no belt, of course). Plenty of New Balance shoes as well. Oh, and lots of facial hair. Gotta stay warm, you never know when that next ice age is gonna hit. And finally, not a woman in sight. Zero. Nada. But hey, it's the best time of their lives!

    Scary....you forgot to mention the life of the party and that’s the couple crop dusters that are always at these shows!

    #433 1 year ago

    Who has the pull to get Elvira to the party?

    Quoted from Psw757:

    Forgot about that. It's inevitable when all these guys eat all weekend is Subway and Dunkin Donuts.

    No. Like most shows the games on the floor are there for the duration for others to enjoy. There is an alternate thread covering what is for sale/trade at Expo for those wanting to meet in the parking lot to do trades. So like this some don't but from years ago shows it was always crappy to see games being turned off or wheeled out on day one because the new owner Had to have it now. Hope you can make it!

    Most of the shows I go to make you pay a fine/early removal fee for situations like this.

    It's one thing only being in town for one day, but a completely different thing buying a floor game day 1 and then pulling it while you are there for the duration of the event/bringing a beater game solely for free admission with the absolute intent to sell it asap...

    #437 1 year ago

    Apologies in advance if this is the wrong thread -- but looking for transport for 4 prewar games (3 counter top, all PM) from Expo to the Central PA / Harrisburg / Hershey area. Please let me know if you can help! (BTW, I fit 7 of these games in the back seat portion of my Nissan Titan for the York show -- much easier to move than a regular pinball).

    Thanks

    Getting excited! This will be my first EXPO. Feels weird not bringing a game, but I’ll be there around 5pm tomorrow night and I’ll be ready to party!

    #441 1 year ago

    Anyone know if Elvira is going to be part of the autograph signing? Or who's going to be there? I've asked before and it seemed none of the designers confirm they just show up that day.

    Especially Lawlor! He's always there for seminars but not much else.

    I'm sure it will cost money for her signature. It shows that she will be in her own ballroom in the schedule, so probably a shindig with selling signed stuff

    I agree. Very typical these days amongst Comic-Con and such.
    I will gladly give Elvira some money to sign my translite after all the pre-pubescent thrills she's given me.

    Get ready for Expo, Superdawg, and Project Pinball! Some slight updates to the fundraising flyer, they will be available at the show or you can download from here to print. Thanks and see you there![quoted image]

    The kickoff for Superdawg fundraising started yesterday, but requires a printed copy of the flyer. I'll have them there starting tomorrow to grab, if anyone heads over there prior and has access to a printer, you can pull the PDF from this post or it can also be accessed here. Thanks!
