    Calling all pinheads! I'm writing to announce that a new pinball group - Liberty Pinball Club - is launching in the Philly/NJ region. This past winter a friend of mine and Pinside member, TaTa, started a thread on this very site to gauge interest in a possible club for local pinball enthusiasts. Interest abounded. At that point, however, we were unsure as to how to best disseminate information to members and, to be frank, had not defined the exact nature and function of our club. Last month, Tata, I and three other Pinsiders - SpiffyRob, Freddy and Vilant, met to discuss the best way to reconnect with local pinheads who were interested in our group. SpiffyRob, a magnanimous web designer, created www.libertypinballclub.com to serve as our virtual meeting place and discussion forum. We cordially invite all pinball aficionados located in the Tri-State region to visit our site and to register your contact information (name and e-mail). We would implore you too, to please leave comments and constructive feedback on features and benefits you would like to see from the club. Though not exhaustive, a few of the website/club goals discussed were as follows:
    • A collection of information for local pinball resources (distributors, parts, route locations)
    • A directory of local players (bio, location, pins they have, pins they want)
    • A place to plan events (meet-ups, tournaments, league play)
    • A kind of classified section to match people who want to play a table with those who have it available
    Do you have a pin you're looking to sell or trade? Consider extending the offer to the LPC member base before the pinball community at large. Headed to PinCrossing one night to play Jay's gorgeous pins? Connect with other LPC members to plan an impromptu tournament. Rebuilding flippers or troubleshooting a technical issue? Maybe another local pinhead is willing to offer his or her knowledge, expertise and time to remedy your challenge. Let's face it, many of us like talking about pinball and working on our machines as much as we like to play them. Going to York, Expo, or Allentown show? Meet up with other LPC members! In truth, the possibilities for our website and club are virtually boundless, and we want to hear from you. So please -- visit our site, register and let us know your thoughts. On a final note, PinCrossing (the arcade located inside the Railroad Street Bar & Grill) will be the site of our next meet-up - more information to follow on www.libertypinballclub.com

    hey Greg, long Live LPC!

    #3 5 years ago

    It looks like we finally made it! We are looking forward to our first meet up at PinCrossing at RRB&G and meeting like minded pinball enthusiast as yourself. Jay(OP) was instrumental on setting this location up and bringing great ideas that could be implemented into the club. One idea was to hold IFPA and LCP tournaments. We will leave details and updates on LCPs web site as they come in. I have not forgotten all who have contacted me before and will be reaching out to them shortly. I hope you consider us for membership. It will only strengthen your pinball knowledge and the number of people you know who play it!

    Really like this idea! I think I remember seeing TaTas message a while back and kind of forgot about it. Marking this so I can find it again!

    #5 5 years ago
