    Quoted from tbanthony:

    Any others? Any private leagues? Both PinCrossing and Pinball Gallery are too far away -- especially on weeknights when they are held. I live along 309 halfway between Philly and Allentown.

    Not that I know of. But if you find something or want to try and tag team putting something together, let me know. I'm in the same boat just up 309 in Quakertown. The lack of pinball is driving me nuts.

    The first tournament of a new monthly series at Penn Skate Arcade is a week from tomorrow! If anybody has any questions about the tournament, location, games, etc. please let me know. I'm happy to help. Hope to see some of you there.

    Sure do. The current list is: Rocky & Bullwinkle, BMX, Blackwater 100, Domino, Escape From The Lost World, Hook, Last Action Hero, Pirates of the Caribbean, Millionaire, Playboy 35th Anniversary, Pool Sharks, Radical, Secret Service, and Vulcan.

    I'll do my best to get it added to the Pinside map shortly. It's definitely a unique lineup compared to most places in the area. Lots of Bally and Data East!

    Hope you can check it out soon. Just as a heads up, the arcade is only open on weekends (Friday-Sunday). The only time it is open on a weekday is for the Tuesday tournament. More info at facebook.com/pennskatearcade

    Quoted from emkay:

    We're planning on making the trip up for it. Looking forward to playing some of those titles - don't see them very often.

    That's awesome, happy to hear it!

    Just a recap since Penn Skate Park is a new event...

    $10 to play the games all night. There is no tournament entry fee this month since it is the first tournament at this location and we want to see what turnout is like and if people are interested in buying in. There will be prizes though (and IFPA points).

    Registration begins at 6:30 with the event starting at 7:00.

    Lots of unique games in this collection including many that you don't frequently see in tournaments.

    If there is enough interest in these monthly tournaments, a league will likely begin in the fall.

    Hope to see you there!

    Penn Skate Arcade's first tournament was a success. Congratulations to the top 3 (1. Jerry K., 2. emkay 3. (tie) coreyhulse and Joel Z. (Joel left before I could get him in the picture).

    The champioinship belt is our traveling trophy of sorts. Hope to see everybody next month and thanks for coming.

    Quoted from emkay:

    Wow that was fun and so nice to see well-kept examples of games you don't find in the wild often. The owner was telling me they're getting ready to blow out a wall and put even more games in there so this is a pretty neat development all around.
    Thank you again Casey for your efforts putting this together.

    I'm happy you were able to come up and glad to hear you had a great time. Your support means a lot!
