I will be bringing my 1980 Bally Mystic. Already signed up on the list.

For sale if anyone is interested!

Thank you!

#952 3 years ago

We need googly eyes to put on pins (mine of course), can Adam bring some?!?

I think I still have some laying around. Probably about 15-20. I'll have to look for them

#954 3 years ago

3 days and a wake up.

Ohh, it's so close.

#955 3 years ago

Leaving at 330am Friday! Should pull in about 9-930. Going to sleep at noon Thursday, this way I'm rested to play all weekend. Will there be a forearm massuse there?

#956 3 years ago

I will be making some removable vinyl stickers of Pinside avatars for the badges that practicalsteve is providing for PAGG. Please let me know if you would like me to make one for you as well. I associate Pinsider's with their avatar and having it on their badge will be a big help to kickstart my grey matter and maybe yours too. I have posted some examples so you can get a better idea of what I am talking about. Please note these are mockups. I only had one badge to use and I just grabbed a couple of handy avatars for this purpose without asking permission. One final note, practicalsteve is swamped and I promised this wouldn't translate to more work for him. So please let me know if you have any questions/concerns/comments. Deadline is 5pm Thursday night. Sorry for the late notice this idea just came to me at 11 last night
PAGG here we come!

That's awesome JTL. My avatar is the shooter lane plastic from Truck Stop. The first pin between the Williams Bally merge.
I would love a sticker.
Thanks Eric

Super duper kewl, please sign me up!

#965 3 years ago

Well done jletourn!!! I imagine we will just make them available where the ID badges are at the NIFTY table. You guys can stick them on yourselves. Its up to him how he wants it to work though.

I too am cutting off making badges EARLY thursday evening, so tell me now if you want one.

FYI- I have about 25 people listed as of right now jletourn, but the badges have been available at PAGG for the last three years. so hope you don't get too swamped with requests.

#966 3 years ago

Also- if I promised to hold you posters, or anything of that nature, it is not a bad idea to remind me as I am averaging about four hours sleep a night between the new baby and getting up at 3:45 am for work. I wont be offended by a reminder- just PM me.

Thanks for the drive advice guys! I'll look at the traffic conditions when we leave and make the final call but leaning towards the 99. I like small towns.

Also, just curious, I enjoy drinking beer and playing pinball. I mean, that's basically my favorite thing to do. Would it be unacceptable to bring a pack of beer to PAGG for personal consumption, or is that strictly a no-no?! Perhaps they have some for sale at the event instead? I'm used to playing pinball in bars, garages and basements so I usually don't think about it.

Apparently not. You'll have to hide in the bushes with me and the rest of the "animals" drinking our satan water.

Anyone know if Dixon has (m)any Uber drivers?

#979 3 years ago

Never mind.... Just Googled it and it appears Dixon has 0.0 drivers.

Some of us don't want to be the guy who commits to something we don't have authority to commit to. That said, it's very laid back.

Practical Steve said it best in this post 8 days ago:

Quoted from practicalsteve:

Come find me in the parking lot and we can chat about it over a cold beverage.
Far from it my man, but many of the organizers are posting in this thread and like they said, it's the fairgrounds rules, not theirs. If everyone is respectful and discrete and keeps theirselves in line there should be no problem. I think it's good to know the rules going in and tell those that don't so you can prevent people from being obvious about it, or jeopardizing the show.

Thanks for the replies guys. It's why I asked - I didn't want to rub any feathers the wrong way at my first PAGG, and I understand there are fairgrounds rules and kids/families there. It's OK, I'll just bring a flask filled with the blood of Gorgar.

Not having much luck securing transportation, so far. Anybody know of any good discount codes for Enterprise Truck rentals? They have one of those small Ford Transit sized vans for about $35/day, which ain't bad at all, really, but I certainly don't mind getting something similar for cheaper, considering it'll be a five day rental.

you can get an open uhaul trailer for $15 / day if you have something to pull it with. As long as it doesn't rain you'll be fine. As an added bonus you can haul them on the legs

#986 3 years ago

Enclosed uhauls are also $15.

#987 3 years ago

No rain in forcast last i checked . I am also hauling on a open trailer so let's hope

#988 3 years ago

Yeah, I picked up the bigger U-Haul 5x9 open trailer at $25 a day. Should fit 4 pins on their legs.

#989 3 years ago

PSA. A bit of advice to take or leave, if you plan to move your games with the legs on while in a trailer, strap them in place real good and also strap around the main cabinet too. Trailers tend to bounce up and down a lot. I've seen far too many pinball cabinets have the bottoms blown out of them from a jarred loose transformer, this especially goes for EM's since they are older and the glue isn't holding the cabinets together as good as it once did.

Mike, You make me sick! Seriously though, I wish I was that far ahead of the game. It's going to come down to me falling over the finish line again this year and into the gutter for the local street sweeper to pick up (I need to have a shirt made that only says "Aack!" on it ). I have to unload all my tools from the van and load up Thursday morning. I'm hoping to be there unloading by late Thursday, set up after that. Then, I go home to collapse and dream that my games hold up through the whole show. I won't relax again until MrGone starts his 2017 PAGG count down.
