Great seeing everyone.
I was so out of it, I didn't know John Borg was standing right next to me. Had a great conversation with him.

Thanks for the congrats! I guess I outplayed my ability today.

Congrats to Tom for a great final game on Super Soccer to take the Clock Chaos championship!

Dave Hegge won A-Division finals. He and Josh Hendersen had a pretty epic battle on Metallica, Dave had something like 130m (over 100m on the first ball), and Josh put up near 80m on his last ball to post the GC score of 150m. Dave had a great game on Super Soccer to seal A-Division champ.

Thanks so much for the crew that helps get this show together, and run so smooth! This was the best MGC I've been to. The new games hall is such an improvement. I can't wait til next year!

Fixed it for you.

Although I had a great qualifier on Super Soccer to get into the A-Division.

Now Neo owns two tournament games.

Congrats Dave on the big win.

Ok Audits! How many plays on your game at MGC, go!

I have to say that seeing Tom knocking Trent out of 1st in the Clock Chaos finals was one of my many highlights of MGC! Trent had previously asked if he even needed to be present at the end to win the event as he thought he was so good (overly confident I guess) that there was no need for him to even replay one of the games.

Go WI! So great to see lots of locals really getting so much better in the competitive side of things!

HAHAHAHA!! Mine is in the van and not coming out til tomorrow! Did check once while working on some bugs and it was at 279. Probably not many after that considering a flipper fault.

I was looking for a Twin Win somewhere since that is how I was 'spotted' in Texas, then saw there was actually a tall blonde chick playing. Lol. Sadly, not me. I am still here in my pinball desert but hoping to get to the Southern Fried Pinball Expo in Atlanta in June and Free Play in Orlando in Nov.

Thanks to everyone for posting pics, stories, reviews, etc for those of those that couldn't be there! It looks like tons of fun.

Was a great time, I also was slacking on taking pics, Banger helped out on the aerial photos....Im worn out.

Great job Goatdan-Tully-Jazman-Jediturtle + all the other MGC people I dont know.

The newer Stern row is my fav pic but who the hell put CSI in there?

Also, Nice job to the jaghole who parked his truck in the loading dock the entire damn day so Kingpin couldn't load up, what a prick. Thats some bullshit right there.

Wow, looks like an awesome show. I really hope to make it there some day. I am completely stoked to see, hear more about pinball zombies.
The few pics and the short vid Nate has posted in youtube are very cool. It looks like a fun and unique layout. Most definitely a breath of fresh air for pinball. Keep up the good work team spooky.

Thanks for coming out, everyone. For those of you keeping tally of the organizer drama that happened this year, I just got home (310am), our trucks got pulled over for suspicious activity, the rain probably ruined at least 500 of merchandise, and my basement has a ton of water all over stuff.

This was I think the toughest year to organize, but the result was incredible due to everyone else who put in work to make this what it was. I don't know how or if we can top it, and after the constant cluster... that was this year, I'm not sure that I want to try. I'm going to take a few days to relax and then we'll figure that out. I'm sure we'll do another show, I just need some time to actually recoup from all the crap this year caused by circumstances.

Again, thanks to everyone. The show itself was the best show I've ever run, hands down, ignoring the crap. We together entertained around 8000 people (no idea final count). I couldn't and definitely wouldn't do this without you.

I'd love to see photos of this. We apparently walked into Rob's store just minutes after this occurred.

I had a cup and it was the best beer I had all weekend and I sampled many kinds. Very tasty, thanks for bringing it.

Had a good time at the show. It was a Whirlwind trip for me, as I left home at 4:00 AM on Saturday morning, and left for home at 3:30 AM Sunday morning.

The MGC was honestly just an impressive thing to see. That classic computer/console room was simply amazing. I took my brother along, and he really enjoyed seeing it.

I'm not sure I'd go back due to the logistics, but I'm sure glad I went.

Thanks to the organizers for putting it on, and thanks to the Pinsiders who brought games to play.

last one of Steve and Charlie. Hopefully these give some people a glimpse into a cool little exchange and what Zombies is looking like.

Tony will likely not remember this picture, but worth sharing. This was around 2am at after party.
