    Are you guys already out of RV spots? I tried to reserve one today, and the form doesn't work.

    I have been told it's still in beta testing and should be up and running soon.
    Keep checking back for updates and please be patient with the organizers. They have a lot to do in the next 58 days. See you there.

    This is my bad, I had no idea how much everyone checked the website LOL. We are prepping everything to open up reservations soon and getting content on the website was step 1. We broke the link until we had our payment system ironed out and could start processing reservations officially. Look for an update across all social media platforms soon!

    Ok, I am glad I didn't miss my chance to reserve a spot.

    Quoted from Vino:

    Maybe an obvious question, but any word yet on how many games Spooky may be bringing?

    A little bird told me Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle will be at the show!

    The covered swap meet area, the raffle and silent auction.
    Beer and wine, Great new food vendors.
    Pinball parts and goodies vendors, and of course, PINBALL!!!!!!! plus more very special surprises that will be announced in the coming days. Stay tuned pinheads. It's going to blow your mind.

    Just a reminder that the games list is up and running. It's easier than ever before.
    There is more room for games than ever before. In years past we have had around 270 games. At the new location in Lodi we will be able to accommodate that easily.
    The goal this year, brink a Ton of games.
    See you there.

    Camp sites?
    The Lodi Grape Festival website says no tent camping. Will there be tent spaces available?
    I have no RV, but would willing to rent a spot for my tent.

    You can tent camp at the Golden State Pinball Festival. Check the website, www.goldenstatepinball.org
    Click on camp silverball. Read through the FAQ.
    My family will be camping there. Come by and say hi.

    #462 1 year ago

    When the reservation system opens up (coming soon!!!) there will be an option to select a tent site.

    Cheers,

    As someone with a little “behind the scenes” knowledge let me tell you that when someone says coming soon it’s not because they are waiting until the last minute, or figuring it out, it’s because they are rigorously testing a system and getting out all the bugs and making things go as smoothly and easily as possible. The amount of effort and work is tremendous. They want this first show at the new location to be perfect and are working in overdrive to make that happen.

    Yup, what steve said. The organizers and the volunteers are working round the clock to insure you all have the best show ever.

    38 trailer sites...get that F5 key ready to refresh to register for a site when reservations open. This is going to be like scoring a ticket to San Diego Comic Con!

    [keeps checking http://www.goldenstatepinball.org/camp-silverball/ for reservations to open haha]

    Hoping there are spots for everyone as there are an additional 10 hookup sites as compared to our old location. Plus we have a few dedicated tent sites too.

    What is the anticipated hour/day/week this might be opened up for reservations?

    GET THAT SPOT SPARKY! I don't know where we'd hang out otherwise.

    I'm hoping they have a super secret, "Special Reservation" link for Sparky.

    #471 1 year ago

    I vote that Sparky be given a permanent primo spot in trailer hookup land!

    That's rad Mark!

    Thinking I'll bring just a couple this year in a small Uhaul trailer. Thinking SoF, RADICAL and AMH.
    It was easier to bring the whole collection to CAX since it's in my backyard and I had a free truck.

    Getting excited!

    #482 1 year ago

    Now that you guys have campsites all booked, it's a great time to go sign up your machines over at http://www.goldenstatepinball.org/bring-games/

    Don't forget one of the great perks for those that are bringing games. When you purchase anyPin NVRAM battery eliminator from Rob Anthony (borygard) at LockWhenLit.com, he will install it for free! Your game just has to be onsite at the show for the public to play. Many thanks to Rob for being such a great supporter of the show!

    Man moving that many games couldn’t have been easy, but thanks again for doing it. It really made Ca X. Fun last year! See you at Golden State.

    Rob is the best! I dropped off my whirlwind board to him and he had it back in 20 minutes to put in the game.

    #485 1 year ago

    Well gang, you must all really love camping! Lots of requests flooded in today but we have been busy at GSPF HQ and have processed all of them.

    Good news is we still have some RV sites left! Bad news, is we are now out of tent-only sites

    Will keep ya posted as things progress!

    #487 1 year ago

    Already 90+ games on the list!

    Ok... Picking games to bring. Figure I got room for four, plus a project Triple Action for trade/sell bait. Thinking I wanna put Oh Boy in the campground for betting purposes (bring your Sacajawea dollars for laying on the glass - Pinballlew gave me a little Sac Holder just for that purpose). That leaves three slots. I got five semi convention ready...
    Title Fight
    Fireball 2
    Expressway
    Space Mission
    Skill Pool

    hmmm

    As mentioned earlier, we are very excited to have a Spooky Pinball Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle at our show. Having one ready in time was only made possible due to the hard work of the Spooky team, so big shout out to Charlie and all the folks back at the Spooky factory. And if getting one through production in time for our show wasn't hard enough, we also really appreciate Rob Anthony of Pinball Classics for working hard to coordinate and ensure that it makes it from the factory to the show. Without their effort, we wouldn't be the one of the first shows (if not the very first show) to have a production Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle to share!
