    PatZ is the only michigan show that I'm a paid supporter of as well

    I heard the guy that runs that [other] show is kind of mean and yells at all of the workers all the time

    Keep in mind he has never cut their salaries either...

    Is an "open house" considered a show? In other words if I were to open up my collection to others to come play my games then is that a "show", or "open house" or is it a "party"? If people are not required to bring games or be a vendor to make the event what it is then what is it?

    Isn't it a cookie tasting event that happens to have pinball machines?

    Only if we sell them milk to go with the cookies.

    Give 'em cookies, SELL the milk. Nice racket.

    Quoted from yancy:

    Exactly what Red Lion hotels used to do when they were high-end.

    #508 1 year ago

    all the michigan shows have people that bring games. and all the michigan shows have vendors too. and none of the michigan shows are at anyone's home. and all the michigan shows charge an entrance fee (unless you bring a game or are a vendor.)

    #509 1 year ago

    Hmm....didn't realize there was more than one show currently in Michigan.

    Yeah we have more than one a year.

    How quickly they forget.....

    #512 1 year ago

    VFW is a great show!

    I never really thought about vending at VFW. Is there room?

    #513 1 year ago

    Vendor space this year (2019) was sold out at the VFW.
    (and there's no charge to be a vendor either.)

    Your open houses are amazing. When do you think you will throw another one? It's been a while since I visited B.C.!

    The Annual Party is always the first Saturday in November. Don't even want to think about it this early...., it's summer fun time right now...LOL.

    Ok it's on my calendar now thanks. You just called it a party though. So which is it? An open house or a party?

    A fantastic open house party pot luck.

    It's 12 hours of pinball party at his open house. Settled.

    #519 1 year ago

    I've missed the last few years, think I will do the same and request off work early this year so I can attend the Dayhuff annual again. Need to get me some time on King Kong.

    I'm looking forward to the next PATZ show and hope the vendors all show up again and people bring out their spare parts. I picked up some spare as-is boards from Dayhuff and have been going through them in my spare time. Rebuilt a couple lamp driver boards and am working on a power board and MPU next. I've attached a picture of the worst one (an old STERN lamp driver) that I finished and verified in my Elektra. It cleaned up well. Before and after pictures are shown below.

    Convention center calendar says April 16 - 18, 2020. Thursday thru Sat. The sites with the 25th to 27th are 2019 (and that will be Sat thru Mon in 2020 - NOT the usual.)

    Website has been updated and matches the fairgrounds calendar now. April 16-18 is correct.
    VFW show is the following weekend.
    Busy April!

    This has been a real frustrating thing for me as well. I’ve been assured, next year will be different. So should be a one year problem. I NEVER want to conflict with anything and work hard not to. Unfortunately we announced our dates first.

    I sure hope you come to PATZ, I couldn’t imagine running it without having you be a part of it!!! Let me know if there is anything I can do to make your decision!

    Me too. Good rates right now. I was late last year and rates had almost doubled and/or sold out. Ended up commuting all three days.

    I should know this...

    Who was the company that is developing a new pinball machine?

    ...they exhibited at PATZ in 2019...
    I think they were based in Michigan, kind of alien/monsters/paranormal theme?
    Cool black and white art?

    I should know this...google isn't telling me anything...
