Starting this Thursday, Pinball on a Stick (POAS) is back at the MN State Fair for 12 days...Aug 22nd-Sep 2nd. It will be located in the arcade next to the Butterfly Hut gift shop (the original POAS location). 11 machines will be available for play and, if you like what you are playing, many of them will be available to play on an ongoing basis after the fair at Mortimers in Minneapolis. John from D&G is loaning games for the event and helping out the other locals with keeping the games in excellent working condition, so it should be a great 12 days. If you can get to the fair, be sure to stop in and play a few games. If things go well, and with the continued support of locals and businesses, hopefully things can be even bigger and better next year!
Attendance at the fair last year was almost 1.8 million people. This is our chance to expose those people to pinball again or for the first time and let them know that pinball is not dead. It can still be played even after the fair at several Twin Cities locations, not to mention locations across the country and world.
There are some ideas floating around for high score contests and/or other promotions and prizes, so I will update this when those things are finalized too.
Here is the game list...
1. AC/DC Premium (@ Mortimer's after the Fair)
