Quoted from GravitaR:

I'll be there for the tourney on Friday to help you out Ryan. Will be a fun time.

Fantastic! Looking forward to seeing you there, Todd. Sorry we didn't get much of a chance to chat at PatZ. Hard keepin' up with my little guy these days.

Quoted from NicoVolta:

I'm in. Might be my first "voluntary" tourney ever... the others were just to be polite to the hosts. (despite winning... heh)

Alright...I've been warned. Ha-ha!

Dude! Your stuff is bad ass! Count me in for a large tee w/the skeleton graveyard pinball party. That's awes!

Thanks a lot, Nico! (I think I might have one left.) Regardless, it'll be nice to finally meet in person.

Hey all,

24 hours and counting (less if you're in the EM tournament)!!!

One point of note for everyone:

Please bring a print-out of your PayPal receipt (or have it on your phone), as well as ID. We'll have everyone's name and email that you paid with on a list at the door, but just in case there's an error, it's always helpful to have the copy of your receipt as proof of entry.

For those folks who are buying and selling show tickets secondarily, please send us an email at info@vfwpinball.com so that we have the correct names at the door.

See everyone this weekend!

Thanks,
Eric V.

I have an extra ticket for the EM tournament only. $20. Let me know if interested.

#358 3 years ago

In case any of you out-of-towners are looking for something else to do too, the Motor City Comic Con is this weekend in Novi.

#359 3 years ago

In the past there has been food (good hot dogs,chips, etc). It sounds like there might be more available this year.

We don't bring food, as we just need some quick "fill my stomach" items in between games. If you're a bigger fan of food over pinball, you should check out some local restaurants.

Yes there's general hot dogs and stuff like said above...and within a half mile there;'s McDonalds, Arby's, & BK for quick fueling.

One ticket available for general admission on Friday. Not a tournament entry.

Email me adam.gacek@dominos.com and we can work out the details/discount/payment. I'll be at the tournament and show today and can forward the receipt to the registration folks and collect the money.

Thanks.

Fueling up now at The Breakfast Club in Brighton. Charming spot w/good food options.

#374 3 years ago

Any suggestion for proper replacement legs on my Gottlieb Spirit? Mine are badly bent and I am not even sure if they are the original legs. I suppose that I can compare while there. (thoughts Clay?)

A thank you to Adam from DOMINOS PIZZA to sponsor the tournament. Proving lunch and gift cards to the winners and 10 more players.

#389 3 years ago

And Day 1 is complete, with few casualties. It's a great event to be a part of...until you see Clay. Then, well...hey, life's just not perfect.

And here's a warning to all: if you smoke, vape, or do *any* kind of inhaling any kind of substances other than plain VFW air, you're going to be gone, with no refund. We gave *one guy* a warning, and that's going to be it: you can smoke 20 feet away from the buildings. Do it inside, and you'll be escorted out, banned, and you'll forfeit your admission. Stay *away* from the line. The line is not your friend.

#390 3 years ago

Heading out the door as we speak. See you in about 5 hrs.

#391 3 years ago
Quoted from MrBally:

Yeah, I guess not

Thanks Clay and everyone that helps with this show. We had an awesome time last night. Hard to take in all of the games that are here to play. And how much work must go into this show to keep them running so well. I can't think of one game that gave me any issues

Thanks to Stephen Azzam for the awesome reproduction of my new Happy Clown backglass. And a thank you to the gentleman that put me in touch with Stephen. Sorry I can't remember the name.

Just awesome all the way around.

#396 3 years ago

Thanks to NicoVolta I have one Sunday ticket.... Need one more for my son.
Thanks!
Kris

#397 3 years ago

fun show for players. Thanks again Clay for opening your collection. I brought 4 non-heads and 1 buddy that is a regular; all had a blast on Friday! They said " WAY MORE FUN that I ever thought Pinball could be!" so great success on getting some new guys hooked!

I plan to be back next year and hope you have your Predator in the line up by then for all to enjoy (after all the legal dust settles). Thanks to those in the VFW club crew for confirmation on where another of the preproduction games resides (even though Clay denied it; understandable in the current timing). Glad that this one has a decent shot of being in public view at some point and in good hand for preserving it. For all those of us that paid and got screwed in that debacle, at least there is hope we will eventually be able to play one in the future. With your amazing playing rare collection, it almost seems fitting that you would also have a Predator tracked down.

Just pulled in and parked.
Weather is miserable. Windy, rainy, and 40 degrees.
What a day for pinball!

#399 3 years ago

I thought there was going to be a GB here. Anyone know where it's hidden?

It's in the Annex (the separate building out back).
