    Quoted from HighProtein:

    Right now there is a growth in all sectors of pinball.
    I'm bullish on pinball on all fronts at this moment.
    I have 7 pinball machines on route in Jacksonville FL and will have at least 2 more on route by year end.
    There is demand and or acceptance for pinball on route and it's growning.

    My experience in Illinois mirrors yours.

    I have gone from zero to seven pins on location since February, and six of the seven have been added in the past few months. (I also operate an X-Men vid to complement the pins at a comic book shop.)

    In addition, I am planning a massive expansion by the spring.

    It's the non-pinball enthusiasts/random people that are playing the machines, and thank goodness for them. This hobby is far too small to support location play, and we need more people playing in public places, not private collections, for pinball to exist in the future.

    Play location pinball!!!

    Quoted from Baiter:

    Maybe for some. But frankly there are quite a lot of collectors that didn't play pinball until the 2000's.

    Yup...Summer 2003, for me, every day at lunch.

    There were more pins on location around here back then...and thank goodness for that...I would have never run into a private collection around here.
