Big chunk of my collection will be there - come out and play some great games!
Quoted from chuckwurt:
Good news comes in bunches! our pinside pal villathrills is graciously offering up his brand new pirates to share at the show. He will be set up with the pinstadium row for everyone to enjoy! THANK YOU villathrills !!!
Awesome thanks for bringing it, but I'll need a welder's mask to play with pinstadiums on it...
Well....hard to write this, but at this point I think I have to miss the show I was really looking forward to. Hurt my back bad 10 days ago while helping to load 3 pins (sold). Been to the emergency room once, had a doc consult, and have to get an mri and possibly physical therapy - at this point sounds like a long hard road to recovery.
Want to wish the best to the show attendees and really can't say enough good things about the organizers. They have gone all out to ensure this will be a great show. Please take the time to thank them in person.
I won't be there with any of my pins or repairing machines, but will be watching the thread - PLEASE post a sh!tload of photos for me. And lastly - please be careful moving/setting up/tearing down. I am an example of how NOT to end up.
I had hurt it about a week before, leaning forward bringing an em up the stairs with a short dolly (with help). Thought I was getting better and helping tear down a comet, lowered the back end to the floor and felt something real bad. Ended up with a sciatic nerve in my left leg pinched so probably no lifting for me for about a year to make sure it heals this time...
Now back to the pincinnati channel!
Loved the looks of Alice Cooper when I picked up my tna
Any streams planned for the show?
Congrats to local cinci winners Darren and Larry! Also congrats to Brian and Derek who are always bad-ass competitors!
Quoted from chuckwurt:
One more reason why this community rocks. We cleared this bitch out in 4 fucking hours. [quoted image]
I think I speak for most of the cinci community - hats off to you and jjsmoth for having the foresight and guts to make this show a reality. There was always talk of a show for years, but it take a ton of commitment and hard work to pull it off.
Quoted from Jjsmooth:
We are very happy with Holiday Inn for our venue. I did not hear a single complaint.
We were able to negotiate extra vendor space for next year, and that will open up our tournament space. New vendors contact Erik or myself.
2018 was a damned good show, and we can't wait for 2019.
Note to self - no lifting 2 months out
Quoted from Gryszzz:
GOALS: acquire a 1000 watt Wurlitzer jukebox to bring next year. For the lobby.
Here ya go, not 1000 watts but pretty damn nice
Quoted from RWH:
Can we come of with some form of pinsider ID for next year? I wanted to meet as many pinsiders as possible this year but only met the obvious (chuckwurt) and others directly involved. Anyone think this is a good idea? Nice to know the name and face behind the avatars on here.
pretty sure you can print pinside tags for yourself. Another option would be a meet and greet
