    Ok... we've been talking about this on our Facebook page, but wanted to be sure everyone knows this is open to basically all the cool pinball people out there. We never really had a grand opening because well, we were broke and working really hard, so now it's time to say thank you to everyone that helped put us on the pinball map both inside and outside of Benton.

    To say we're a bit "rural" in Benton is an understatement. Closest hotels are Platteville, WI and Galena, IL... and we're not saying this party is going to be that travel worthy, but hey, we'll be here rocking out with a couple bands (including Bug's band debut) and some food & beverages, so you might as well join us if you're in the area.

    If you are coming, please post a "yep" just so we have a minor idea of a head count for food & drink prep.

    Sincerely... we love being here, so thanks if you'll be here or not!!! Charlie & KT

    oh and the hotel has been booked......thanks for the reminder Charlie.

    #7 3 years ago

    Dubuque is another option, plenty of hotels around.

    #8 3 years ago

    Hell Yeah !

    #11 3 years ago

    If there was even a shred of a way for me to swing it I'd drive that far just to drop off a pizza, share a six-pack and check out Bug's band. You guys kick ass, hope you have a great time!

    #12 3 years ago

    wish i could make it tempted to take a long drive

    #13 3 years ago

    Can i get a ride with Ben? If so, then yup me

    #14 3 years ago

    Hey old dude... you're the one bailing out on the greatest moment in Spooky Pinball history! (complete exaggeration)

    I'm calling Deb in the morning to tell her how sweet and nice she is, and that she should leave you home and come to Benton that weekend. She's a better pinball player than you anyway, and she won't drink all my beer or take out phone boxes all over town.

    Your people really need to check with my people before you schedule shit like this!!!!

    It was Kayte's fault, wasn't it. It's always Kayte's fault.

    Come on old man, I'm going and it's my anniversary.

    Quoted from He-Man40:

    Come on old man, I'm going and it's my anniversary.

    Me and a couple buddies had it all arranged....and then my wife reminded me of a trip she planned for us a number of months ago for that weekend. I'd still come but I prefer not to give up all my pins in the divorce.

    SHIT!!!!!!!

    She'd never leave you BK... who else would drink all those cases of skanky old beer in her house?!

    I don't think so old man!! I wanted it the following weekend but NO.... that's G-Fest. I got vetoed by a giant lizard from Japan.

    Hey... that giant lizard is sacred to your son and I. Arigato Usagi!

    And hey, let's face it... that giant lizard from Japan is kind of the reason that Spooky Pinball exists... isn't it.

    Quoted from Jazman:

    And hey, let's face it... that giant lizard from Japan is kind of the reason that Spooky Pinball exists... isn't it.

    In a round about way... YES!

    Can't wait to rock out with Sektor on their debut... and of course, BEAKER!!!!!! Squirrel!

    You are such a dick!!

    They'll also get a free beer... difference is the free beer is probably worth a buck.

    #28 3 years ago

    Misses MGC, now missing the coolest pinball open house eva!

    I promise not to tag you in any pictures if you show....

    You could always have this in Benton Harbor, MI. Closer to highways and some actual hotels here. And beaches.
    There are parts of Benton Harbor you want to avoid, but plenty of nice places to choose from.

    BRYAN KELLY KEYCHAIN!!!

    What the hell would a Bryan Fing Kelly keychain be for... was the wheel even invented, let alone the car when he was born. The man is so old, that when he farts, dust comes out.

    #31 3 years ago

    YEP x2

    You'll see, asshole. You can have a case, if you'd like.

    He's not wrong... and hell, I think I sent half a case to Bryan as a joke over the winter. Still got a pile of them left! Maybe it's because his cartoon picture is on there and they smell like Geritol and ass.

    does each one come with a 1-a-day vitamin and some metamucil?

    #35 3 years ago

    looks like I'll probably be able to make it.

    #36 3 years ago

    I will be there - looking forward to it!

    #37 3 years ago

    Ill be there for anyone that wants to talk bytes and PCBs.

    #38 3 years ago

    I'll be there to drink all the beers.

    BK appears to have a one track mind these days.

    I just ordered the coozies for the event... I think I'm going to add "Bryan Kelly Wasn't Here" on them.

    Seems a fun time was had by all !

    Must have been a lot of beer drank if the pinball manufacturer felt the need to label a pinball machine 'pinball machine' for the attendees. ; )
