    I’ll be going by my self (first one) tomorrow. If anyone else would like to explore together PM me. I’d love to meet some fellow pinheads and hang out at expo.

    Well, got my pic with Todd Tuckey and bought a pin. Now in the spooky seminar.

    This was my very first expo, so I’ll give my rundown and a noob. I purchased a groupon for Saturday and had no issues validating it and getting my wristband. First stop was the main vendors hall and thought it was done very nicely. Was neat seeing the new Octoberfest pinball and getting a chance to play it. Same with the Monster Bash.

    Second stop was the autograph area and a quick pic from that creep Todd Tuckey. Wish he had more books, but they had sold out. The main game hall had some fun machines I hadn’t played in a long time. Made me realize how much I love Whitewater. As has been reported, there were quite a few machines down or turned off. The arcade area was similar with machines turned off or non working.

    I was unimpressed with Steve Richies seminar as I would have preferred him talk about pinball history or something more related than his comedy show. George Gomez’s seminar was pretty interesting.

    Overall it was a cool experience. Ended up buying a pinball machine and had a good time. Will definitely go again next year.

    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Is there another thread with pics from the show?
    Did ICE attend with Super Chexx Pro? Anyone check those out? What were your thoughts?

    Loved them.

    How do I get on the list to meet some of you guys next year! Sounds like there was as more fun away from the game room.
