    Well not sure how that took months to send out, but I am looking forward to receiving mine soon as I sent in my $100 right away.

    Did you check your spam folder?

    Tim emailed me a couple months ago bc I forgot to include my address on the PayPal. I also sent in $$$ right away. Got the shirt about a month ago.

    Maybe time for a nice email reminder if he didn’t email you.

    My wife and I also just received our shirts (red and light blue) and DVDs yesterday ...we paid minutes after Tim posted, so he is working through the list. Hopefully you will get yours any time now.

    Yes, same design as the previous poster.

    #408 2 years ago

    I sent my $100 on 8/24...should I have seen something?

    I wasn't expecting anything, so it was a total surprise. I assumed it was going to be something I ordered off of eBay and forgot about.

    #410 2 years ago

    Agreed, it was a wonderful surprise as I received mine today! Thanks Tim, excited to be a part of pinball history!

    #411 2 years ago

    Got it…zero expectations

    I figured the color was random?

    I was wondering the same thing. I donated $50 and have a yellow.

    #417 2 years ago

    I donated $100 and have a red...

    #418 2 years ago

    Yeah, mine is red and $100 as well.

    Clark County commissioners just approved the plans this morning. Congrats, Tim.

    Details from the zoning meeting of interest... details on the building and signage planned

    --
    Elevations
    The plans depict a 1 story, 50 foot 2 inch high building constructed of concrete tilt-up wall
    panels and a glass storefront. The upper portions of the front (west) elevation cantilevers over
    the entrance to the building. The rear (east) elevation shows clerestory glazing and 2 roll-up
    overhead doors. The roof is flat, but angles down towards the rear from the 50 foot 2 inch height
    in the front to a 34 foot 1 inch height in the rear.

    Floor Plans
    The plans show a 26,880 square foot building consisting of exhibit/gallery area where pinball
    machines will be displayed and played, and restrooms.

    Signage
    The plans depict a 4,706 square foot, approximately 40 foot tall, animated wall sign on the front
    (west) elevation of the building; and a 71 foot 3 inch high, 1,782 square foot, 4 sided, animated
    freestanding sign located 10 feet from the west property line along Las Vegas Boulevard South
    and 6 feet from the north property line.

    The letters of both the wall sign and freestanding sign are formed by the positive and negative
    space created by the use of reverse pan channel lighting on the wall sign and pan channel
    lighting with a lexan face on the freestanding sign. The signs are animated since the lighting will
    change color. The pan channel lighting on the freestanding sign will be mounted on a perforated
    metal mesh frame.

    I'm picturing a beautiful new building filled with delapidated games. Hmm.

    The strip hotels are not trying too hard to compete.
    So far NY NY was the best for pins for me.

    Would pinball's ultimate pirate actually get into the square circle with music's ultimate butt pirate, while playing PM5K's 'when worlds collide?'

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/entertainment/entertainment-columns/kats/las-vegas-pinball-hall-of-fame-owner-still-flipping-mad-at-elton-john/

    If it involves pinball, promotions, and profit for charity, eight ball says most definitely likely.

    BTW, and most definitely congratulations on the variants granted in the design approval process. These things often take a LONG time to iron out with so many stake holders involved with so many opinions and examples of variants denied to back up their claims. Its a very good step in the right direction.

    I'll be at CES 2020, so Jan 7-10, but I'll be in Vegas from the 4th-11th. Will PHOF be open to some extent?

    Old location still open for long time to come.
    New location at least 2 years out from opening. They have the ground/lot, and they have a lot cleared to start construction soon. Will be there Monday at will look into it more.

    Oh good, thank you!

    #434 1 year ago

    If I was in town, and had a pinball and a generator with me, I would set up in the empty lot for an afternoon and gain everlasting fame as the first person to ever play pinball at the new location! (if only technically)

    Done right, it could also be a charity drive, most appropriately for SA .

    Unfortunately it's not going to happen for me, so feel free to steal my idea!

    I bet the new location of Pinball Hall Of Fame will be the new kind of the old PAPA World Headquarters that was in Carnegie, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania since PAPA World Headquarters closed down for good after 2 years ago!!

    With the shutdown there should be lots of time to get everything running 100%
    Order a 40 gallon drum of Novus.
