Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
Next year I'll have to make the Allentown 2018 Pinfest thread when I get home from the show
Six months seems so far away right now.
Quoted from Irishbastard:
Hmmm...Beer talk has me rethinking giving up on Pinfest (Pintastic has satisfied my need and 3.5hrs closer)....Also not on Mother's day weekend this year so, hmmm.... Wish you could drink at Pinfest like you can at Pintastic and did not have to deal with the "few chromosomes short of a happy meal" nitwit in the golf cart... There was a decent bar within walking distance of the show tho, large selection.
The heavy drinking and partying happens at the comfort in after the show! Man what a great weekend it is. I love Allantown and Ivan and his crew do an amazing job every year.
Quoted from ryandimx:
With Alien hopefully being my next purchase it's an odd feeling getting ready for the show with no intentions of buying a game. Gotta figure out what game/s will be ready and willing to sell to bring up. Shadow and TMNT might be on the block. Maybe a dual monitor playchoice 10.
Also the farmers market food is totally over rated. It's only that good compared to the food at the venue. Not many other close options though.
I feast on the ribs at the farmers market every year!
I just snagged the last room at the holiday inn express for May 5th. Better book your rooms guys!
Quoted from zacaj:
What's the rule at tpf? Do they also have a fee? Or is it just not allowed?
At Texas they do it a little different. With your free play game you get a weekend pass. If your game leaves before the end of the show you need to pay for that weekend pass which I believe is $65. But keep in mind Texas is more of a collectors show. I would say only 30% of the games are for sale. Its a different type of show.
Allentown is so great because almost everything is for sale and if your a buyer its like going to the pinball super market. But with that type of show games leaving is a tough thing to control. Either way Allentown has its nitch and is an amazing show I will keep supporting. Ivan and his crew are a bunch of amazing guys. Dedicated to the hobby. Gabe
I have 2 sterns DMD one with red shield
I also have 4 other DMD all working fine.
$120 each can deliver to Allantown
Demo man is done and will be in free play. All flippers rebuilt. Full led's and a full shop job. Two coats of wax. Game is not for sale.
Ivan and his crew did an amazing job as always! I'm excited to see Ivan a lot more relaxed at Pintastic. Great to see everyone at Allantown. Gabe
Quoted from rkahr:
My feeling as well. Plus there's a little town called New York along the route between here and Sturbridge that makes the trip very unpredictable and generally unpleasant to drive. York is next for me.
-visit http://www.kahr.us to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC Pinball resets or for my Pinball 2000 H+V video sync adapter kit
That's why I go around NY city. No issues back and forth to Allantown 4hr each way.
