We got back a few hours ago and we are all pretty exhausted. It was a really fun show. Vendor traffic was down relative to Allentown and tpf, not entirely sure why, but it still was a great time. Met many pinsiders I didn't previously know, played a lot of games I never played before, including many that Brian brought. My kids kept pestering jjp and ZY for autographs, which they were really great about. My younger son picked up a pinball 3000, or whatever it's called and is currently assembling it, and thinking how he can mod it with lights.
If I had only one suggestion to make to improve the show, besides the food issue, it would be to eliminate the free play room and move everything into a single room. I think the vibe will be better and it may help the vendors more. Would be tighter, but so what, I'm sure we all have cramped basements and would survive.
Hope many of you were able to play the GB prem we had in our booth with the backbox and other mods on it. It was played nearly nonstop and had roughly 375 plays. GC was 1.5 bil and my score, which was #1, was 930 mil I think.
Hope we get a lot of follow up biz from the show, we put a lot into it and all the shows we attend. I've got several back box mod orders I need to fill plus a few other things so this week will be busy on top of my day job. I'll be in Chicago Wednesday night and will be at HQ River North for dinner and more pinball.
Thanks to all who made the show happen, really a nice job! Over and out...
Almost forgot, was great meeting Dan from project pinball and learning all about their organization, what an amazing and awesome thing they are doing. I'd urge you all to check them out, buy a t shirt and help less fortunate kids or those dealt a bad hand get exposed to pinball and it's therapeutic magic.
