    Looks like im gonna have to meet up with Gryszz at an event and let him take me under his wing and show me the ways lol

    That's not what he's gonna show you.

    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    Hope there's still a row of Sinbads.

    Last year I "organized" that row and brought two of them. This year I'm bringing zero Sinbads, but anyone else is welcome to fill the void.

    Always up for meeting new Pinsiders, hell, that's mostly why I go to Expo! Besides my metal buddies, pinball peoples are the best!
    It is my Christmas....3 straight days of PARTYIN YER ASS OFF!!! Honestly I don't care how much shit people talk, it won't sway my opinion on it. I'm​ here for the party.
    MANY thanks for doing that Yancy! That was my favorite thing about Expo last year. Hope there's at least one this year.

    Hangin out w/ Gryszzz can be quite entertaining.
    Just don't knock over his ice chest of beer. Holy crap, I thought he was gonna go tackle this young bonehead that was pushing through the crowd at the Indy 500 infield.
    Then later at the local bar Scotty's north of the track there was this lady all pissed and fussing how she wanted her knife back. Someone took her knife when she was gettin into it with some other woman.
    I 'm proud of Gryszzz. We made it through two Indy 500 weekends the past two years, and he didn't end up in jail either time.
    Party on Gryszzz.

    Can't wait for our 3rd pally. Maybe we'll get some other pinball losers to accompany us next May. Debating putting 2nd story deck on that house and throwing one last RAGER before we sell it. Like fucking CROWBAR playin and shit. Seriously.

    So I can get free tickets to the race every year and I've only been once. Overall I thought the race was really boring and not "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" as its billed as. I'm more of a drag racing guy and LOVE going to the U.S. Nationals at the big go. Now having said that, i've never got to FULLY experience race weekend with all the parties which is something i'd love to do.

    The one time I did go I had more fun in the yard that I parked in watching the owner nearly getting his ass beat after the race was over for soaking unsuspecting motorists stuck in traffic with his garden hose. That was well worth the $20 I paid to park!

    So if you're truly looking for more pinball losers to hangout for this event count me in!

    I think the "No pinballs in rooms" means "no playing a pinball in the room." What could the issue be of storing one in there be?

    gryszzz is jazzed, but that just may be his natural state.

    Violent Steve pickin up a Bronco on Sat, then comin, and he thinks it's not gettin set up in the room. Think again Violence.
    It's goin right next to the 500 watt speaker.

    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    Thinking I might drop it off at my folks house Saturday and load it up again on Sunday before I leave town. That way it's safe and protected from your grubby paws.

    #139 64 days ago

    Yeah but yer forgetting that Dorothy gave me a key. If I come up missing Sat night DONT CALL MOM SHE'S BUSY.

    #140 64 days ago

    mikes dog isn't going to be there. what will they bitch about now?

    #141 64 days ago

    Mike never said a bad word to me. But I never brought a machine either until this year. Still don't think he would've. Pretty sad these 35 yr friends can't work it out.

    #142 63 days ago

    Please post a few pics for those of us that can't attend, so we can see some of the action.

    Besides people sharing, Martin does a good job with what's going on at Expo on pinballnews.com

    Quoted from Aurich:

    Some jerk might have been playing TBL at 3am in the Presidential Suite last year. Turns out they still remember that ...

    hey! I had a good ball going and I wasn't just going to let it drain. I paid good money to play that game and drink that fifth of vodka (and run the role as "bouncer" for the meeting room)! oh wait a minute, I didn't put a deposit down, so scratch the money comment

    #145 62 days ago

    If the Westin contract is coming to an end is now the time to wreck yo self?
    DESTROY EVERYTHING?

    #146 62 days ago

    Yep.
    Destroy everything.
    On Violent Steve's credit card.

    Pinballnews.com is awesome! He usually posts mp3's of the seminars from all the big shows for the benefit of those who cant attend.

    Hopefully he wont get punished and banned like he did a few years ago at a certain tour and anniversary party during expo for speaking the obvious. Still makes me mad thinking about how poorly he was treated considering how much he has done for the hobby.

    #148 61 days ago

    So, were the hotel mgmt. and staff much impressed how nice and respectful all the pinball people were this year?

    they thought the pin people were great this year since they weren't there last weekend, ask after the show this week. Likely a different story then

    Hey. That's not cool, man. I'm only there for a day this year. Why you gotta go and Hulk Smash everything?
