It's that time of year again, where there is only a few months to go. What a great event.

If you have any project machines for sale that you can bring to the show, post them here.

What are you looking for? What are you bringing? What are you doing at Pinfest 2016!?

PinFest 2016!

wtb - three cheesesteak pretzel rolls and donuts and one of those huge bbq dinners and ........ I enjoy spending probably an hour and half at the market eating and enjoying the atmosphere

Pinball, beer in parking lot (F the rental cops), food next door at the market, and cheap strip club at night.

Won't miss it.

#11 3 years ago

I'll probably be coming again, especially if I haven't found a pin by then! Probably would have bought a game last year if I had the money.

I will have a Victory at Allentown this year in the inside flea market. SOLD

#21 3 years ago

It was only a matter of time until the 2016 thread popped up LOL
Not surprised. Psyched for the show again!

#22 3 years ago
Quoted from Sethman:

The time will fly by, and this will give a good jump to those that have some projects or games sitting that they want to move.

Speaking of which, I am in need of a early 70's Gottlieb Lockdown bar, the ones with the ball on each end that goes into the latch. Pm if you have one.

Let's talk...

#24 3 years ago

Can't wait! Last year was my first pinball event and I had a great time! Was blown away by how many machines were there...

I'm looking to buy a nice Hokus Pokus or Sky Jump... Let me know if you're bringing one to sell and perhaps we can make a deal!

#25 3 years ago

Looking for a Bally Hot Doggin. (Missed the one that was on the floor last year.)

#26 3 years ago

Mother's day is screwing me that weekend. Blocked out days & possibly mandatory work Sat..

#27 3 years ago

Shit. Mother's Day weekend might screw me over too....

#29 3 years ago

I am looking for a cheap re-theme project. Preferably a system 80B with good boards (no hacks or acid damage).Worn playfield, missing translite, scratched up cab, etc. is completely acceptable.

#30 3 years ago

#31 3 years ago
Quoted from Whridlsoncestood:

Just tell her your shopping for the ultimate gift on Friday and Saturday.

#32 3 years ago

Can only make it on Friday this year, 50th high school reunion on Saturday.

No projects, but I will have a Wild Fyre (if not sold), Sharpshooter and Taxi for sale.

#33 3 years ago

I'm going in hopes that the guy in the golf cart will yell at us again for having a beer in the parking lot.

you motherf$$$$, I mean...

Wasn't Mothers day weekend last year too?

Tell me about it. Last year, he stopped by to accuse all of us of drinking and started snooping. I then asked for his name, and things got ugly. I told him he didn't have a right to accuse anyone (and we weren't doing anything) He started flipping out and then drove off in a huff.

What an asshole.

Last year (2015), mother's day was May 10th, and the show was on May 1-2.

This year (2016), mother's day is on May 8th, and the show is May 6-7. It just happens to work out where that it's the second Sunday of the month, but the first full weekend of the month.

Feel lucky you still have the Mother "problem"....

#38 3 years ago

Anyone have a no/little fade awesome condition Getaway that they plan to sell/bring?

My buddy had bought his first pinball machine so we headed out to the van for a celebratory beer. On the way, we ran into some other people we knew and struck up a conversation about circuit boards (damn, I'm old).

Anyway, you've got 5 guys ranging in age from 35 - 60 enjoying a beer, talking pinball and Captain Buzzkill pulls up in his golf cart and starts throwing a fit.

Did anything ever come of it?

Although he didn't approach us, we saw the same guy creeping around. After, we just went with a put the beer in a solo cup and go inside plan.

Right with you on this one. My mom passed way too young.

#42 3 years ago
Quoted from ectobar:

Nope. We heard him yelling at other people and hid the beer when we saw him coming. He wanted to look in the cooler because he said he saw us holding a beer and I told him to go pound sand.

Same here.. and Dad too..

#45 3 years ago

Golf cart dude threw a fit on our beer brigade in the parking lot last year, too. Someone told him to pound sand, and he left.

I'll be there this year again despite the sh*tty Canadian dollar...with an EM for the show floor and cold beers in the back seat. I'll survive on Buffalo Chicken pretzel wraps and Coors Banquet as I do each year...

We walked around drinking during that whole show and never even got a second look! Discreet is the key.

#47 3 years ago

Think this may be my first Pinfest this year. Someone bring me a Swords of Fury to buy!

#48 3 years ago

Love the golf cart dude. Looks like a simpsons character. Great police hat he wears.

LIONMAN!

Before Pinfest last year was right around when LIONMAN blew up on Pinside. I had never seen or played SoF before the show. I put up the GC score on the SoF that was on the floor and was treated to the onslaught of LIONMAN callouts. Loved it. One of the highlights of the show for me last year for sure.

LIONMAN!

I told him to go and get the Police or get lost. Discreet or not, he just pulls up and cowboys the action. I hope he blows a flat on that golfcart.
