    Just wondering what the Pinball / Vids scene is like in Raleigh, Durham, Burlington NC area?

    Anywhere to play?
    Any good local user forums?
    Any tournament groups/events?
    Any Pinball / Arcade Expos?
    The buy-sell scene? Good, bad, so-so or nonexistent ?

    Just wondering, the wife recently visited Burlington and she was blown away at the difference in lifestyle and warmth of people in contrast to South Florida / Miami where you get screamed at and flipped off while driving to work from 3-12 times a day.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated. I've already noticed that not many homes have basements but the house prices are pretty amazing BTW.

    Quoted from Yoski:

    Raleigh has a lot more publicly available pinball machines than south Florida. Even Pantana's on Hillsborough st. next to NC State now has 4 (high end) machines according to Pinmap. They didn't when I used to live there.
    I would move back there if it wasn't for my job keeping me in Miami. People are much nicer and more competent. Crime is a lot lower. Traffic is not nearly as crazy.

    thank you for your reply.. everyone thank you for your feedback. It does really seem like a ton of pinball and vids..
