    Sweet! VIP in hand! Can't wait...

    #163 9 months ago

    I think I am still a VIP right????

    #164 9 months ago
    Quoted from mainelycoasters:

    You are a staff member.

    #165 9 months ago

    Just an FYI guys you need to call the host hotel at 508-347-3246 and ask for the "Pintastic pinball block" in order to get a room at the hotel. If you try online they are sold out you have to call. Its $110 a night remember you cant get into the after party Friday night if you are not staying in the hotel. Plus if you want to be in the middle of all the late night action you will want to be staying at the hotel. Thank you.

    #166 9 months ago

    I always book as soon as it possible. But. now I can't remember if I did for this year already sometime last year or not yet..... that's the problem with booking so early:)

    Well if you don't book early you won't get a room. The hotel will surely sell out earlier than last year.

    #168 9 months ago

    Hotel room booked! Me, my wife, my avatar...the usual crowd again this year. Looking forward to the abuse...

    Ok that's early enough lol

    #172 9 months ago
    Quoted from dannunz:

    you would know I booked right after you did. 24 hour VIP lounge may need a sleeping area for the people keeping an eye on it...

    The hotel will be providing someone at the door checking for lanyards and badges from 10pm to 6am but I have a feeling the sanctum crew will be in their late into the night a specially if I get the massage girl in their like I want.

    Quoted from dannunz:

    At least three!

    #175 9 months ago

    Massage girl? :-O

    #176 9 months ago
    Quoted from Toyguy:

    Massage girl? :-O

    Yes that's one thing I'm working on. How nice would it be to get a massage after a long day of being on your feet?

    Awesome. I'm bringing my own.

    #178 9 months ago

    Got my vip tickets for me and the kiddos ! Yayyyyy cant wait !

    #179 9 months ago

    What about classic EM shooting games? Any members care to bring any and display them? Or are these not allowed to this show? They seem like they can be a bear to work on.

    Quoted from Playdium:

    All pinball and arcade games are aloud. An old EM shooting game would be very cool.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Most hotels have congestion issues on WiFi networks. It's not really avoidable when there are hundreds of guests all trying to stream video or music simultaneously. Then on top of the bandwidth issue, another part of the problem is that most off-the-shelf wireless access points that you would find in an electronics store have trouble communicating when there are 20-30 users connected to it. So, when it comes down to it, you have bandwidth limitations, equipment limitations, and poor network design & management--all of which take a decent amount of money to correct in an environment with a lot of usage. There isn't really a "quick fix", unfortunately.
    Purple water?

    I'm sorry but that's a poor excuse. Every hotel I go to for a work conference has hundreds of people using wifi to do a variety of things and they can maintain a proper internet connection. There is NO excuse other than being cheap and not wanting to fix the issue!

    The hotel wifi was upgraded late 2015. But their are 2 separate systems. Your free wifi you get in your hotel rooms is only meant to work strong in the rooms. The convention hall has a separate wifi that people need to pay for on a daly basis. I'm sure it's like that so vendors don't get free wifi to use for business usage.

    #183 9 months ago

    Yes but the problem was the wifi was NOT working well in the rooms!

    #184 9 months ago
    Quoted from HoneyBadger:

    Ok I will look into that. Do you remmember your room number?

    #185 9 months ago

    Another request you should make Gabe, is the condition of the public restrooms near the free play area. This was mentioned earlier in the year regarding the show. The restroom was a disgrace, and hotel management really needs to step up their game.

    Are we heading towards handing out latex gloves in the free play area?

    That will be taken care of this year. We have a dedicated hotel staff member keeping up with the rest rooms during the show. I addressed that long ago.

    #187 9 months ago

    More paper towels, please. That was just gross in there.

    Hopefully dedicated staff will improved this aspect of an otherwise excellent weekend.

    What is everyone's opinion on the best day to go do the following(s)?
    1. Buy a pin.
    2. The least busy day to play lots of pinball.
    3. Take advantage of the swap meet area and get some good parts/playfields.

    1. Friday is the best but all days you can find good deals.

    2. Thursday evening and if your a VIP than any day for one hour earlier and over night in the VIP over night lounge.

    3. Friday morning

    When we're together, sometimes it's tough to tell the difference.

    The one closest to the ground is probably the alpha.

    I'm wondering if the 4th of July being so close will decrease or increase the attendance ?
