I had a great time at TPF. I'm so glad the show survived being cancelled for two years. It came back with full strength! I got to hangout with some great guys and gals I'm happy to call friends.
I played some amazing pinball machines and got to see my buddy Cary Hardy walk away with the Best in Show award (even though he cried like a little girl....I kid...I kid) It was very emotional for him, hell I even got chocked up a bit. I was very happy to see him win. I know it meant a lot to him and he had a ton of time invested in his Getaway pin.
My friend Lonny Payne won the award for best Arcade Game for his Target Zero. You couldn't miss it if you attended the show. It was prominently displayed right in the front and was the size of a refrigerator! Lonny has some incredible talent restoring pins and arcade machines.
I was lucky enough to win two awards myself. Best 90's pin for my Data East Lethal Weapon 3 and runner up for best 70's Solid State pin for my Stern Lectronamo. I hope some of you got a chance to play it.
A big shout out to Ron Pennington for his two pins he restored and brought to the show. It was an amazing Nitro Ground Shaker and his Frontier pin. If you saw them at the show and got a chance to play them you know what I mean.
Looking forward to next year already!
