    Thanks Robin for organizing this event. It was really cool to meet you and a bunch of other pinsiders who I have read posts and chatted online with over the last few years!

    Could someone tell me if the game hall is open to the public all day on Saturday? The schedule on the Expo website is a bit hard to read. I'm taking my son and we were going to leave now but it's hard to tell if the game hall is open when you compare the PDF schedule and the schedule on the main page.

    The main page says it's only open from 1-5pm on Saturday but the PDF doesn't indicate anything like that.

    Woohoo!!!

    It's obvious that Robin is a little camera shy and doesn't want anyone to know what he looks like but now that he is an international superstar there's no hiding:

    pmWolf - I saw you in line at the Stern Tour and was gonna come up and ask if I could move into your basement but you were deep in conversation.

    D'oh! I just now realized you are a Moderator. If I knew that I would have let you cut!

    I was also lucky enough to meet the infamous Aurich ... he looks nothing like his avatar!

    Well other then the guy on the far right.. hes Questionable

    #427 5 years ago

    I thought it was a police lineup

    #428 5 years ago

    My feet got tired from standing and walking and playing pinball, so I looked for a comfy chair on which to repose. Walked all the way to the far corner of the window aisle and saw one chair open among four plush chairs around a small circular table. Saw the three guys in the other chairs were all wearing Pinside T-shirts and I figured they participated like I do on this fine site. At a pause in their conversation I asked if this was the scheduled Pinball round table discussion (since I am observant and the table was round and they were having a discussion). Turns out it was Robin and some moderators calmly preparing for their seminar time. They quickly threw me out and resumed...no, that's not right. They were all good guys and appreciate everyone's interest who participates on Pinside. I shook Robin's hand before I went on my way. He was careful to lean towards me when we shook hands so I wouldn't have any chance at pick-pocketing his wallet, but other than that I enjoyed talking with them all.

    #429 5 years ago

    It was a real pleasure to meet Robin, Gweempose and the others, I had the fortunate circumstance to sit down and talk with Robin for quite awhile on Saturday, but missed the seminar stuck in traffic getting back from Pinball Life

    #430 5 years ago

    Also enjoyed meeting Robin. He was super busy but was always willing to stop and chat for a few minutes in the halls of expo. I'm only sad I wasn't able to get him to sign my card of him LOL!

    #431 5 years ago

    I missed the meet and greet, but a I got a private tour of Gweempose's collection! Thanks again man, was a pleasure to meet you, great way to leave Expo on a high note.
