    Can't seem to find a topic for an Ottawa group or an easy way of searching for members in the area. The pin map function is a little painful...sorry. Just interested in knowing who the pinside members are that are in the Ottawa and surrounding area and what machines are in town; and to provide a forum to reach out to locals for assistance.

    Anyone interested in a thread like this? No personal information please, just add to the thread. Once in the thread we should be able to see the machines in your profile.

    Greetings Ottawa folks!

    Originally from Ottawa myself but moved away, living in the SF Bay Area out in California for several years now. Visiting this weekend, and had two great pinball outings!

    1) House of Targ. Bank St, south of downtown, not far from Lansdowne. Nice set of modern games, many newer Sterns including Iron Maiden. Well worth the visit.

    2) The Neighborhood Pub, in Nepean. Went today (Monday) and had the whole pinball room to myself. Large set of games, mostly EM's and SS, with a smaller number of late 80's / early 90's games. WOW , this place blew me away - every single game I played was in tip-top shape with rocket powered flippers. Amazing experience!!! If the Sir or Madam that runs these games is in the thread, my hats off to you!!

    Nice wish list scrdube... heavy on the SS Bally’s....

    Quoted from cdnpinballer:

    Nice wish list scrdube... heavy on the SS Bally’s....

    Well wish list is mostly games I’ve played and ones I want to watch threads on. Can’t say I’d ever be able to buy them all or that there are no favorites. Unfortunately the ones I like are the most expensive... probably same for everyone?

    When I can afford another machine it will likely be a centaur, eight ball deluxe, or firepower. Ones I’ve played. Or maybe an EM from just before SS.

    Ones I’ve never played but look awesome are the usual high rated ones... haunted house, black hole, fathom, embryon.

    Gotta win the lottery .

    I never really got into many games after the 80’s because I stopped playing and didn’t really care for all the layers and tubes that block my view of the table. Too complicated... but I’m sure I’m missing out on a lot of good games. You need to take the time to learn how to actually play and win specific games as they were designed... just didn’t have the time or quarters anymore .

    Thanks for joining.

    Thought I'd revive this topic a bit and also show off my recently completed full repaint of a Williams Grand Prix playfield.

    Looks awesome
    Nice job

    #28 5 months ago

    Looks fantastic Fred! Can you share your roster of techniques? What paint, lettering techniques, etc. You give me confidence that my Gay 90's repaint will be doable.

    #29 5 months ago

    O-town crew all safe and sound?

    #31 3 months ago

    Yup... good here. People still selling pinball machines ... go figure. The Space Invaders on Kijiji just dropped to $2800... getting into a nice price zone now.

    It looks slick but I remember it getting a bit dry myself too. A bit too much open space in the middle. Purdy though.
