209 day to go.

REMEMBER!, this is the 20th pin a go go.

Lets make it the best one yet.

How do we do this? pin a go go is you. yes, you. bring a game or 10. volunteer. if you have been coming to pin a go go for a few years you know it takes the whole community to make it work. volunteer, help set up and or take down games. are you good a fixing games? be a pin medic. you can watch the doors or help put wrist bands on people. you could hang posters and get the word out to the people. there are many other ways you can help. donate prizes to the raffle and or silent auction.

pin a go go has and is about so much more than just the games. its about the people and being part of one of the finest communities that exist. be part of something truly special. come to pin a go go 2016. help out where you can and PLAY PINBALL!

see you all in 209 days. Spencer. aka, mrgone.

#110 3 years ago

It will be great just to see you.
Although, bringing Excalibur would be ok too.

#136 3 years ago
Quoted from Jabbles180:

No games list yet Mr. Gone. There's no guarantee I would still own the games I put on the list if it was out already.
The question is, how many machines to I pull out of the house this year? I'm pretty sure Split Second will be there but I'd what else until I see what everyone else is bringing. No LOTR this year, it was utterly destroyed from plays last year haha.

I never saw a time last year when there weren't at least two people on your Lotr.

It got a lot of love that's for sure.

Bringing split second would be cool. Very few have seen or played it.

#137 3 years ago

Alright, time for another early reminder.
The challenge.
Every one who has ever posted on this thread bring at least 1 game this year.
Bring as many as you like but commit to at least 1 game.

And if you are really feeling the spirit oh the silver ball volunteer at least 4 hours of time for one day of the show.

Remember, pin a go go is us. All of us.

Also remember that there is a group of people that work many,many hours all year long to make pin a go go work.

#144 3 years ago
Quoted from hawkmoon:

Hay,Ronnie1114,no breakdown this year ok? Looking forward to PAGG,would like to bring a game,but,i don't think any of my pins would be popular enough to take! You guys look at my collection,and if you guys think i should take one,speak up!!

any or all of your games will be well received at pin a go go.

#145 3 years ago
Quoted from Jabbles180:

#280 3 years ago
Quoted from practicalsteve:

Nice! How did you get the exclusive scoop?

a little luck and some good friends.

#281 3 years ago

101 days bump.

#283 3 years ago
Quoted from tracelifter:

You know how I dealt with them, off goes the machine then I explain to them how it works.
There are some self centered people that don't understand common courtesy and when they would ask who the f%^k are you if it wasn't Roger Daltry I would then explain to them I was the guy that would be tossing their sorry ass out of the show if their behavior continued.
One guy came real close at PPE when he put 4 players on my AFM and was disabusing it.
At first he thought he was going to jump bad but ended up walking off mumbling once he realized how much I would have enjoyed tossing his sorry ass.
The people behind him were thrilled that I shut this boor (or is that boar) down.
I never really had to deal with it at PAGG but at PPE and CAX there were always a couple of them.
The signs are a good idea but a true hog won't be bothered by them, as you said people need to step up so the word gets around that this kind of behavior won't be tolerated.

I will volunteer to be the new sheriff in town for this.

#284 3 years ago

100 Days until Pin A Go Go 2016!

Are you ready for the pin a go go challenge?

What is the pin a go go challenge?

Here it is,

There are 5 parts to this Challenge,

part 1, Come to pin a go go. easy right? Just show up, play pinball, meet people, and have fun.

Part 2, Bring someone new. invite a family member, friend, coworker etc. someone who has not attended before and might not be a pinhead.

Part 3, Bring a game or 3 to share. pin a go go works because of great people that bring their games to share with others.

Part 4, Volunteer. Again, pin a go go works because of all the wonderful people that bring games, set up and take down, hang banners, hand out wrist bands, run the tournament, etc,. if you have come to pin a go go more than once and enjoyed it than step up to the plate and help where you can. you are giving back to both the pinball community and the local community.

part 5, introduce yourself to at least 1 new person that you think is new to pin a go go. Welcome someone warmly and let them know what a great community we have here with all the nor cal pinheads.

That's it. You want to be pin a go go master. just complete these 5 simple and fun steps and you will be the envy of family and friends everywhere. You also get to feel all warm and fuzzy too. See you all At Pin A Go Go 2016!

Oh, I'm sure there will be something there you haven't played before. Pin a go go is so much more than just the games though. It really is all the amazing people of the local pinball community.

#307 3 years ago
Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

48 days and a wake up kids. Lets get the game list filled up.

20 years of pagg. Steve Ritchie, jersey jack, the hobbit, game of thrones, ghost busters, amh. Sparkys BBQ, and more. Fun for the whole family.

12
#462 3 years ago

Ok, kids, remember challenge time? It's here. This is the most important challenge of becoming a pin a go go master.
You must introduce yourself to 5 new people at pin a go go.
My 1st pagg, 6 years ago. As rusty and I are walking in the door we meet Dottie. She introduces herself and helps us get in line. Later we see her again and she walks us around and introduces us to other local pinheads.
Steve faith. He is manning the front doors. His smile and warm welcome to to strangers is a breath of fresh air. Sparky, he invites us to his BBQ having never met us. Everyone there is friendly, kind, welcoming.
Steve makes a quick speech about a good guy named al garber.
Al had passed that year.
I never got to meet al but everyone speaks about what a kind and good man he was. Here is the big secret to pagg. On the day I first went to pagg. I did meet al garber. He was on Steve's warm smile and hand shake. He was in Dottie's friendly welcome to pagg new friends pat on the back. I saw him again at sparkys BBQ when sparky smiled, handed me a brat and said welcome to pagg.
I played in my first tournament that day. I saw al again. This time it was on jonnyos smile. He walked me through how a pinball tournament works. He made it fun for a first timer.
Do you want to be a true pin a go go master? This is the final test folks. Be who al was, be who Dottie, Steve, sparky, jonny o and all the other good people at pagg are. Pagg is/was never about the games. It has always been and will be about good people sharing the day and the joy of life with brothers and sisters. Go to pagg 1 time and you are part of an amazing family and community. As I write this from my hospital bed. Be what al was, a kind, gentleman, who loved life and all it had to offer.
Pinball was just the vehicle he used to get us to where we needed to be. Stop in at the em room. Play Al's fireball. Say hi, show him the love he showed others is alive in you and me.
That's what pagg is all about.
See you all in 47 days.
Mr. Gone,
Spencer.

#465 3 years ago

46 days and a wake up. Crank it up! Ye haw!
No Steve Ritchie this year. We still have jersey jack, all the vendors, all the great people and you.
Bring a game or 20. Bring something good to eat or drink at sparkys. See you there.

#468 3 years ago
Quoted from pinballholder:

Excellent, never played Scorpion before, looking forward to taking it for a spin!

This, really excited about scorpion having never played one. Thanks for bringing it.

#469 3 years ago
Quoted from Nexyss:

Glad you are back Spencer! A few tried to step up and keep the countdown going, but it just wasn't the same. See ya in 47.

Thanks Paul.
As long as I still have a pulse I will keep doing the count down.
See you at pagg.

#470 3 years ago

Alright pinheads, the Reno guys are bringing it. Sacramento, Stockton, Lodi, I 80, east bay, lets hear from you. Show is the pagg spirit. What are you bringing?

#472 3 years ago
Quoted from BumperMcBaulhogh:

Booked my room yesterday. Still not sure if I'm going. Especially now with this new meet 5 new people rule. I suck at that in these situations.

You get up here. You can ride shot gun with me and I will get you to a ton of strangers. I'm going to need shoulders to lean on. I'm still weak as hell and have a long way to recover fully. I can not wait.

#476 3 years ago

#594 3 years ago
Quoted from jsa:

Is there a formal process for expressing interest and buying pins at the show?

yes, you run up to a game with a for sale sign on it. put your hands on the lock down bar, yell dibs, and start waving cash in the air.

nah, you just look on the back glass of a game,if its for sale there will be contact info and a cell number there. call the seller and talk turkey.

This is when it starts getting good. so close to pin a go go. its like waiting for Christmas when you are little.

everyone starts posting. its going to be the best pagg yet. I was preaching the gospel of the silver ball to my physical therapist today.
he said he might come and check it out.

#606 3 years ago

Good morning pinheads. 23 days and counting.

#618 3 years ago

22 days and counting pinheads! its getting close.

#619 3 years ago

22 days until the party of the year.
A quick reminder, everyone attending this year. be sure and support the pin a go go sponsors. you will find them listed on the pin a go go home page. some are pinball related. many more are local businesses that provide great products and services that we use every day. pin a go go would not work as well as it does without the support of the community. so remember to support the people that support us.

See you at Pin A Go Go 2016.

Quoted from practicalsteve:

Too kind sir, too kind. We will be sharing a brew or two for sure.

Do it! I cant stress enough how much the friends I have made in the hobby have become important in my life.
Let me tell you a little secret too, you get the best deals from your buddies you meet at shows and on pinside. I don't buy games off craigslist anymore, I buy them from friends. These are games that never "go on the market" they get shuttled back and forth between buddies houses. You would die if you knew how much I paid for my clear coated immaculately restored WCS94 I bought off my good friend Pinwillie, I'm talking ten times better and a thousand bucks LESS than anything on craigslist the last two years. And guess what, I have hooked him up in return in any way I can. I love pinball but I wouldn't be involved to the degree I am if it wasn't for the people I meet.

THIS! Its the great people that keep most of us involved. the games are just the icing on the cake.

Quoted from jsa:

How do you guys typically manage power distribution?

we don't. we take every bit of power we need until the stop lights start to go dim.

#649 3 years ago

20 days until pin a go go! see you there.

Quoted from blownfuse:

I don't have enough time to go through Bounty Hunter, Force II, Pink Panther and do them the justice they deserve. What about Punk, Striker, Counterforce, Mars, God of war and Time Line? Every year, it gets harder to come up with ideas that outdo the previous show. Sometimes I hit my mark, other times, I shoot off my toes.
Steve

yes please. or bounty hunter is good also.

#664 3 years ago
Quoted from pinheadpierre:

Okay - I had to Google Punk and Counterforce to see what the fuss was about and I totally get it, particularly with Counterforce. Special game!

There are lots of great games from the late 70,s to mid 80,s that are just now being discovered by people. That's another great thing about pagg. We get a chance to play some rare classics you will most likely never see in the wild.
See you at pagg.

Quoted from hawkmoon:

Absolutely fabulous!! Pinheads from Canada,Utah,Socal,Org,Nev,We should have a place to hook up,meet,and say hi!!!

there is the picnic area between the buildings and (although not officially announced yet) Sparky's BBQ. which is the main meet and greet center.

#696 3 years ago

AWESOME! The center piece of pagg. If its your 1st time of your 20th time at pagg, Sparky"s BBQ is not to be missed.

Count me in for a sun shade, some folding chairs, bottled water, Rusty"s bbq beans, and fresh fruit and melon salad.

See you there.

#701 3 years ago
Quoted from practicalsteve:

Don't just consider bringing a side dish to Sparkys, BRING ONE. You heard the man, chips wont cut it, a quality side dish.The man is beyond generous for opening this up to all of us on Pinside and to me this is a must not miss event, a total highlight of the show. This is a great chance to meet some faces you have only seen as avatars on here. This is a total blast and I cant thank Sparky enough for continuing to host this great event.
Mr.Gone, can you dig up group pictures from past BBQs?

Sure, let me see what I can dig up. I have a really bad habit of putting pics every e
Where, office PC, home PC, memory sticks, etc. I will hunt some down.
