    Hi All,

    I am having a pinball gathering on this Saturday March 9th 2019 starting at 11:30 am to 8 pm. I have over 40+ "great condition" machines to play.

    Looking to meet new EM pinball collectors who would be attending for the first time. Anyone can bring a guest who is interested in pinball. If you can't make this gathering....I will be having many more, so send your contact info for the next one.

    Private message me here through Pinside...so i can add you to my guest list.

    Go here for sneak preview of my collection.

    Having been there I can say if you get a chance to go, GO! Vic's games are the cleanest, best adjusted games I've ever played.

    #5 77 days ago

    Bump!!
    Looking forward to it

    #6 77 days ago

    Wish I were closer!

    #7 76 days ago

    Got to play this collection about a year ago and I still think about it often! Hoping to get a chance to play it again on another trip to the NYC area later this year!

    #8 76 days ago

    Can’t wait. Thx for making this happen. Please let ya know what we can bring

    #9 76 days ago

    wish I still lived in NJ...) but only for this..p

    Bump for Vic (and his collection).

    Vic has been the single most influential person in my pinball life. He's certainly the most enthusiastic EM collector around.

    His collection plays 2nd to none. If you haven't had the opportunity to experience his machines, you are truly missing out. Vic's games have always looked and played amazingly, but since his latest PM, they are even a notch above where they have been.

    I'll be popping in on Saturday, and am looking forward to seeing everyone there.

    What a great time !!! One heck of a host with an amazing collection. It really opened my eyes to how EMs can play when they are well maintained. Fresh and fast !!!

    Thanks for the awesome time Vic

    #12 72 days ago

    You going to have a Video coming soon Vic?

    #13 72 days ago

    Doh, wish I notice this earlier. Would have loved to meet some more local pinball folks. Thanks for sharing your collection, hope to make it next time.

    I've seen all of your Films, read all the articles, really appreciate your help to me when I was just learning and your sustained zeal for EM machines.
    I've never been in Jersey proper (came in from the Coast side and just took a picture).
    This would have been worth getting out of my comfort zone.

    #17 71 days ago

    Love the photos

    #18 71 days ago

    What a generous thing to share such a great collection. Never get tired of seeing pictures of Mr. Camp’s machines.

    #19 71 days ago

    #20 71 days ago

    #21 71 days ago

    Great gathering as always. It was nice to meet some other pinsiders as well.

    #22 70 days ago

    The nicest machines I've ever seen!

    A tip of the hat to Vic!
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful collection with us.

    I had a blast!

    Jaytrem...PM me your contact information for my guest list for the next gathering coming up soon.

    #25 70 days ago

    Vic, it's wonderful that you open up your house for folks. Great to see the bingo outreach! Having had the opportunity to play Vic's games, I can attest they are second-to-none!

    Cant wait till April Vic..... Joann and I had a wonderful time and will be looking forward to the next one.

    Many thanks Vic for being such a gracious host and allowing me the oppotunity to see one of the best collections in the world!

    I’ve come away even more passionate about these great games and with a greater appreciation of 2” flippers and even bingos. Finely-tuned pinball is a very different thing than just regular pinball - at Vic’s you get to experience them as they were meant to be played.

    Absolutely fantastic and I can’t really say enough! Thanks so much especially for being such an inspiration to the community. It was definately worth the drive!

    #32 68 days ago

    It was nice meeting/chatting with you Spinal.

    #33 68 days ago

    And I have learned first hand he is a person who doesn’t hesitate to help someone. As a owner of my first EM(1975 Atlantis) Vic has gone above and beyond to help me. Never met him and he doesn’t know me from Adam. But he took the time to assist me with several questions. I am sure this doesn’t surprise anyone. Best, Charlie
