I can help pick up and bring back if you need it

#7 4 years ago

Is there a one-day price, or is it $25 regardless? Thanks.

#8 4 years ago
Quoted from PBaller22:

$25 regardless. Whether you come one day or both.

All pinball machines are on free play, both days. No extra charges to play in any of the tournaments.

Sunday is noon to 10pm, that is ten hours of free play pinball and two pinball tournaments.

Saturday is noon to midnight or so. Twelve hours of free play pinball. Plus on Saturday two tournaments, one ball TOPS tournaments, Goose Egg event, and pop and hot dogs all day and pizza from Pizza Lucé every couple hours.

So either day, just the amount of free play on the pins is well worth $25.

Great Success to the PC2013 and everyone who contributes a game.

Its always amazing how generous people are to pull machines out of their basements and arcades to help make events like this a success.

Lloyd, I will be bringing Maverick. Any problems with me dropping off on Thursday, picking up Monday/Tuesday?

Quoted from janus:

No problem at all. I always work with people bringing in games, as arranging getting them here isn't always easy. So games often come in early and stay late.

If it is for sale, please put a sign on it with game name, price, and how to contact you. And leave a key in case I need to unstick a ball or something.

Lloyd (or anyone else in the know) -

I can not make it, but would like to donate an entry fee to help offset the food costs. Do you have a PayPal address I can send it to?

Thank you for all you do for Pinball Lloyd, and all you have done for me, even though we have never met!

Thanks Lloyd for hosting another fantastic Pinball Circus! Don't think I'll be able to come tomorrow but I hope everyone else has a bunch more fun.

And a big thanks to all of the folks who brought in their pins too. It was really neat to play a bunch of games I've never played before.
