    Hey all,

    Thought I would share something kinda cool we're doing this weekend. A couple of us from the halifax pinball league thought it would be a neat idea to host a free event for the public to check out pinball. We got in touch with the central library, and they gave us a really nice room free of charge for the weekend. Me and 2 others rented an 18ft truck and loaded 14 games from various collectors in the league.

    Today was day 1 of 3 and what a huge success it was! 245 people came through the door to play and everyone was as stoked as us! The amount of kids just awestruck with the games was amazing. Some older people were having a blast from the past on the ems we brought.

    All in all its a huge success and I can't wait for tomorrow to get here. Hope you enjoy some pics!

    Cheers

    Tons of work, but so worth it. My face hurts from smiling and laughing so much!
