Quoted from dfsays:

Wish I could stay overnight and partake in midnight PinGolf.

midnight pingolf ????

I missed this!

Those gloves are exactly right for "the law"... He has magnets in them!

Those are the kids versions of my gloves...come on people.

#104 3 years ago

Magnets...

#105 3 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Those are the kids versions of my gloves...come on people.

but you're a kid sized person, so are you saying that these were too large?

#106 3 years ago

Wiley has anti magnets apparently

#107 3 years ago
Quoted from MrBally:

CFH gets very upset when you attempt to manually move that sliding target and break the "bakery box" string that controls it......

You should see what happens when someone sneaks a bottle of CP100 into the shop...

Quoted from Whysnow:

Yes, Pingolf should be available from show opening.
This year the overnighters will have a "monkey flipping marathon, championship, death match" thing. <wink, wink>
Hope you are with us happy campers this year. You'll have time to finally finish a game of Strikes and Spares, ha, ha, ha.

#109 3 years ago

unfortunately i wont be staying over to camp. I have coordinated and am bringing 5 other buddies for a mans weekend. We grabbed a sweet VRBO in Ann Arbor and are golfing on Saturday (not my idea, but they are doing pinball all day Friday).

Sounds like fun!

In my mind if I had not left that game of Strikes and Spares I might still be there playing. Clay would just check on me every once in a while to make sure I was ok, but leave me be to finish it up.

#110 3 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

Anytime you want to go ahead and put DMDs back in the league, be my guest

#111 3 years ago

New finals rule, no gloves....I don't care about people's ocd!

Do you ever SLEEP

#114 3 years ago
Quoted from smokey_789:

Do you ever SLEEP

On his throne when he gets tired of whipping the help

#115 3 years ago

Well, maybe they NEED whipping Can't make it this year-- have a major system upgrade going on-- been wondering if I met you last year-- there were a few cool cats sitting out side with Ninja when he signed my son's nunchucks.....maybe you were one of them.....

#116 3 years ago

TheLaw needs whipped, whip it good.

#117 3 years ago

The 1985 Zaccaria Pool Champion is ready for the May 13-15 Ann Arbor pinball show. There's probably less than 10 of these in North America. But check out that guy on the playfield... weird stuff...

...also both of the women want to take an 8-ball home as a souvenir?

#120 3 years ago

Thats the kind of woman you have to watch out for, taking an 8 ball as a souvenir!

#121 3 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

Another rare one for the show, the Bally BMX (400 made.)

glad you finally found one to restore

#122 3 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

i can't believe more people don't partake in the affair.

I would partake
if your great show did not conflict with PAGG.

#124 3 years ago

#125 3 years ago

Thank you

#127 3 years ago

My Saturday ticket has been purchased. I'm looking to become the only third-year camper!

Are those (bowling pin) fly away targets? (ala Speakeasy)

#131 3 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

Zaccaria Stars Phoenix ready for the 2016 Ann Arbor pinball show.

Neat.

I like the art on the playfield.. the die rolling at you. Don't really get the backglass art though. The woman seems awkward -- is she running away? Where's her other leg?

#132 3 years ago

Ordered my tickets for Saturday, can't wait super excited. Also looking forward to meeting Clay, i have emailed with him many times. Always nice to put a face with a name.

#133 3 years ago
Quoted from acebathound:

It looks like she has a bowling pin for her other leg, which is awesome (in a peg leg bowling female pirate kind of way).

You know I was seeing that too lol

That would be awesome.

#135 3 years ago

Just bought my ticket for Saturday. Really excited to come to the VFW show for my first time!

#136 3 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

I can't wait to play this game!

#137 3 years ago

Stars Pheonix really captures the essence of what Zaccaria was all aboot.
The classic excitement you get heading to the transsexual casino to shoot dice with Katy Perry & Howdy Doody, and then bowl a few frames. I mean, what could possibly make more sense than that?
I heard if you hit the progressive carribean bowling jackpot Mr. Peanut gives you a handy-J

#138 3 years ago

Tickets ordered for Saturday!

#139 3 years ago

Zac games are so weird, how can you not love them?

#140 3 years ago

Saturday is SOLD OUT...better get them other day tix!

#141 3 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Saturday is SOLD OUT...better get them other day tix!

Sunday is really the day to go, since the crowd will be smaller and access to most machines will be far easier.

#142 3 years ago

SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!

Obviously, you've never been to Sunset Station in Henderson, or the Grand Sierra (formerly Bally's)in Reno ....

#146 3 years ago

Just a reminder that this year's T-shirts are now available for pre-order;

Will anyone be bringing anything for sale?

#149 3 years ago
Quoted from amkoepfer:

Nothing is set in stone, but we might be bringing a Black Rose, F14, Funhouse, Heavy Metal Meltdown, or Rocky & Bullwinkle. Or some combination of those.

#150 3 years ago

Is there a wait list for Saturday tickets if someone backs out? (Possibly looking for 2 tickets)
