    Fairly new to the hobby...been in it just over a year now & have built up a decent collection. Not ready to start joining leagues or tournaments but would like to find a small group of casual players in the area that also have collections interested in playing & hosting...or if you already have something started & would like another participant/host let me know as well. Thanks

    I take it you're a member...most of the members in the W/NW suburbs? Good group of guys?

    looks pretty cool, I might also be interested in that, but I'm more up north, Fox Lake area. Not sure if that matters.

    No it doesn't. We have members spread out all over chicagoland. Most of us have no qualms about driving an hour to someone's house or public location once a month (and we do try to carpool whenever possible). Send me an email on the site.

    You never let me join proably seeing as I have no pins right now besides tiny models you can't play. I have a small electronic hulk machine haha

    Plus we drink all your beer and talk your ear off during your turn on the machine.

    ok, maybe I'm just the only one........

    DJ...we've met...hoping to host something relatively soon. Need to get all my darn pins working at once. Is that possible?

    Did you sell/trade the WCS?

    #13 7 years ago

    Hey all. I'm around the STC area as well. Generally a pretty hectic schedule, but try to get out when I can.

    It's probably my turn to host I'm sure....

    #14 7 years ago

    Hey John,

    Yep...know you had mentioned you have get togethers...definitely interested since you're only about 15-20 min from my place...you'll never get them all working at once...it's pinball

    Did sell the WCS...ended up getting a BSD & more recently a Dirty Harry...trying to get the DH working now!

    I'm willing to host as well...let me know

    My in-laws live in St. Charles so we are up that way all the time. I'm just a little further down the river.

    Wow...nice that you got the BSD! I'd love to give the DH a try once you get it going. I've heard good things about it.

    It's in pieces right now...but the gun is working again...putting all new rubbers on & installing LEDs...will be ready to go by next week

    BSD rocks...I understand why you didn't want to move yours!

    #20 7 years ago

    Out in DeKalb, not to far out from you. I'm part of IPC and also get together with a few of the guys that have posted in the thread on occasion.
