    Hopefully no one knows a dude wiith a green Toyota Tundra pickup bringing a T2 driving like a impatient jerk out on highway 12.
    If so, can you remind him we can all get here safely, I’ll even help set up, but don’t be an ass.

    #1110 2 years ago

    Question where do folks that bought a GSPF pingulp pick them up?

    #1111 2 years ago

    Just played, tna,alien and Big Lebowski back to back.

    Only one blew me away,man TNA is good.

    #1112 2 years ago

    I’d like to send a big shout out to all of the pin medics and volunteers for keeping the games going today what a spectacular first day!

    #1116 2 years ago

    That was a great Friday at the GSPF!
    Cheers to all who made this event possible!!

    #1117 2 years ago

    This new venue kicks ass. Tons of space. Tons of elbow room. Nice and cool. The latest pins and Kill Bill are excellent. Am I in heaven?

    #1118 2 years ago

    Damn jealous I am not there. Looks amazing. I would be playing in the campground all night. See you West Coast friends next year!

    #1120 2 years ago

    Great first day. I love the new Iron Maiden pin. Did one of the two already get pulled though? It was not there later in the evening.

    #1121 2 years ago

    Someone needs to post more pics of the venue filled with pinball.

    .......>>>>
    I guess One can find some pics at pinball news

    My games survived the Friday crowd, but I expect today and Sunday to be the true test of our games. With a new venue and a larger turnout than ever before, I expect today to be nothing short of epic.

    Hell, my games fared far better than I did. I threw my back out, got 6 mosquito bites, and woke up with a mild hangover.

    Day 2, let’s do this!

    Quoted from daley:

    Saw it on our way out, it was at swap meet area for pinball under the stars.

    Quoted from TheDrewster:

    Day 2, let’s do this!

    Just hit the road for the 1 1/2hr return trip, looking forward to another great day!

    #1125 2 years ago

    It's going to be a glorious day in Lodi.
    Weather.com says it's currently 55DegF with an expected high of 80.

    Sparky's BBQ will be easy to find. JJ put up a small banner at his trailer.

    Mosquito bites what the heck. We don't seem to have mosquitos in California. I'll watch out for them here in Lodi!

    My buddy and I went out to his truck later in the evening for a short bourbon session. He was parked in the field. We were out there for 20 minutes before we realized we were being eaten alive.

    #1128 2 years ago

    Heading up, see y'all this afternoon.

    #1129 2 years ago

    Good morning pinheads!
    Are you ready for day two!!!

    Swap meet, the main tournament, kids tournament, Sparky's BBQ! Seminars.
    Oh, and lots of pinball

    #1130 2 years ago

    I played pins for a full 8 hours yesterday at the show. What a great show! The new venue is fantastic. I had a great time. I was able to play SO MANY amazing machines. I was in heaven!
    My personal show favorites were Houdini, Big Lebowski, Dialed In, and Pirates. Had some great games on a Whitewater too.

    #1131 2 years ago

    Is JJP Pirates a really long-playing game, or is it just me?

    Shots and targets everywhere on that pin. Maybe most shots ever. Had no idea from having only seen pictures up to now.

    #1132 2 years ago

    Agree, Pirates was a longer player than I imagined. Houdini surprised me as well with many video modes.

    Anyone else spot Donald Trump who came by for the grand opening yesterday?

    The other IM got used in "Mike's Midnight Madness Tourney" which was held outside under the stars from 11pm to 1 am last night and it was awesome, great job pulling that together bellystyle

    I had more really short games on it yesterday. But my bud arcadenerd925 had some really long games. I liked the 3 spinning discs. Too bad that's not gonna stay

    #1138 2 years ago

    Sure wish I could be there. Is it loud? When I toured the facility last year it was extremely echoey with all of the concrete walls and surfaces.

    Quoted from NicoVolta:

    No louder than any other show. The EM room which has a drop ceiling is actually relatively quiet.

    #1144 2 years ago

    I got crop dusted bad in line for TNA. Dude

    The Radical thats here plays great. Really fun

    Great day at the show. Sold 2 games at the swap meet (really easy access, and thanks for having it under the canopy. Yay shade!), and lunch consisted of an excellent BBQ kebab / asian noodle salad / Lodi red ale. Special accolades to the BBQ guys, brewer and food staff. Really enjoyed playing a great variety of em's: Bally Star-jet, the shaker games, Big Juicy Melons, Majorettes, and the Keeney Go-Kart were all unique games that seem only to come together as a group on a quality show like this, that is supported by generous pinheads. Thanks to all that made it happen.

    And I'll say, if for no other reason, I appreciate having a central valley show at an alternate location than Dixon, just because this venue has air conditioning. Maybe didn't need it this year, but the no AC kept me from the Dixon show several times over the past years. Thanks for finding a better place to host it.

    #1147 2 years ago

    It's been a great day. And still not over yet.

    #1148 2 years ago

    I'm gonna call it now with yet another day to go.

    Best pinball expo I've ever attended.

    Well done everyone, especially Mr. Gone.

    #1149 2 years ago

    This is what makes it all worth while! Another great day!
