    Quoted from Cheddar:

    So it begins
    We got the keys and emptied the trailer from our TV appearances yesterday.

    Sorcerer! "Feel my power!"

    To all the awesome guys setting up, hopefully you get some pinball breaks in between all the heavy lifting.

    Trying to decide on a side dish for Sparky's BBQ.
    Is anyone else thinking of doing corn on the cob?
    If so, I also have access to some smallish zucchini and yellow squash.

    I’ve logged about 25 games each on my two machines today and it looks like they’re both dialed in and ready for action. But I’ve got a buddy coming over tonight who’s gonna rack up a few more games for the true test. I’ll be hitting the road tomorrow morning. It’s showtime.

    As someone who has attended multiple PAGG, PPE, and CAX expos, I don't think I've ever been more excited to attend a show.

    The change in venue is a breath of fresh air.

    Weird Al tomorrow, followed by a weekend of playing pinball with my friends. There is no place that I'd rather be.

    #1019 2 years ago

    To all volunteers and organizers,
    Lights out is at 21:30.
    All hands on deck at the main hall at 08:00
    For off loading and set up.
    Get some rest.
    Tomorrow is not a drill.
    It's 1 day until SHOWTIME!

    #1026 2 years ago

    So begins my journey... just have the heavy ones left. Loading soon after U-Haul opens in the morning. One game going to be dropped off along the way for this years STEM student end of year party.

    It's looking like I'm going to be getting there by 6 but it could be later. Friends need to cut out of work then we'll be on our way. Trying to get there in time to get the games set up inside. If it seems like it's going to be a rush I'll just come to camp so we can get set up over there.

    Cant wait to drop some quarters, hopefully the showers are 3 for $2.

    #1028 2 years ago

    Chillin’ the Libations, loading up a huge order tomorrow and grabbing Jay Friday arriving in time for dinner and good times!!

    I LOVE your truck man. Those first gen Tacomas kick ass. I’ve got two myself, a 2000 SR5 with 358k miles on the original engine and transmission, and a 2nd Gen 2007 TRD Sport DCLB, the latter of which will also be hauling pins tomorrow.

    Sorry for the distraction. Back to Pinball.

    #1043 2 years ago

    Packed and ready to go, I get off of work at 8:00 AM and should be there by 10:30 AM. Looking forward to hanging out all weekend with Y'all.

    If anyone needs a place to pull up a chair and relax a bit under the shade during the weekend festivities my trailer at Camp Silverball is always available. Remember, JJ will be hosting as well and Sparky's bbq on Saturday is a great place to hang out at.

    See you all real soon!!! For anyone driving, have a safe trip.

    Anyone going from the Sacramento airport to the show area? Me and a buddy looking for a ride.

    #1048 2 years ago

    Loaded up. Let’s do this.

    I’ll actually be dropping the machines off and heading ALL the way back home to attend my brothers’ graduation ceremony tomorrow morning, then hitting the road once more afterwards. Basically, I’ll be driving back and forth to Lodi four times this weekend. I’m gonna need some more podcasts and a LOT of caffeine.
