What a fantastic show! My fourth year there and it just keeps getting better.
I cannot give one complaint (other than why on earth was there a MMR, SM and WOZ on display only? that's horse$hit). The show to those that attended looked like it ran smooth and steady and I know it was due to the hard work of people like Pinballholder, cheddar, and others who's pinside handles i'm not familiar with like Brad, Steve, Greg, and countless others I am forgetting or just don't know. Not to mention the army of volunteers that held it down.
The pin line up was top notch, big big thanks to those that bring the rare games like RVDV, Jabbles and of course Blownfuse, to be able to share pins like that is just phenomenal. And to those that brought the pristine and the new like GeneX with the AMH you are awesome for letting us play a game others would not dare to bring.
Better than the pins was seeing old friends like Pinwillie, PismoArcade, JVSpin, MrGone, Mof, Drewster, Hawkmoon, MyCal, and a ton others who I am am spacing on right now. Great to make new friends every year, PinheadPierre, Damon, and I am sure a dozen others I am blanking on, wish I was better with names.
Sparky hosted a generous and fantastic BBQ as always, thanks again for being a highlight of the show!
Great seeing more vendors this year as well, Thanks to all of them for making the drive and thanks for hosting the ID badges NIFTY!
So how do I talk to about keeping the show running 24 hours?
One last thing. I think its great to come into this thread after a show and just see all the positivity and fun that everyone had. It seems like every other show, after its over, there is a thread of grievances and gripes. Things that need to change, things that don't work. Its nice to see the opposite with PAGG. I know people complained about some players being rough, I didn't see that myself, but hopefully that was the rare exception to the rule.
Great time, already looking forward to next year. Only 364 days right MrGone?
