    Yep! The show is simply changing venues. The folks behind the show and the infrastructure that makes this such a great event will still be there.

    The covered area is going to be where the swap meet will be. It has power to it so outdoor night pinball can happen. The camp sites will hold nearly 100 campers. The main building is more than double the size of both the Dixon buildings put together. The smaller building that has games in it will be for seminars. We had games there today because it was a get together for all the volunteers that helped out at pin a go go.
    The camp site even has rest rooms and showers that will remain open 24 hours a day during the show.
    Enjoy the pics and see you all in may.

    #176 1 year ago

    The main hall/halls have the capacity to hold more than 400 games! Are you ready? It's going to be epic! See you all in may 2018

    Sorrry I missed the meeting yesterday!!Now,as some of you may know,214 will be different starting in Jan.Prop.214 patients and ,as in Nevada also,areas must be made available to the public! We don't know yet how all this will shake down,BUT,if you've been paying attention,a compendium is already building a Resort in Cali,south of Vegas,totally for (Green) use exclusively! All the old barriers must come down! And if any of you know Azmodius,he is the most positive reason for medical use! Mike is truly a miracle and a hell of fun!!Lodi will rock!! And,like always,I won't know who i've seen!Kerry,I missed you when you did a deal with Fireball2 at CAX! Very nice to have met you,The-dude-abides! I as well will try to make Banning!! C U all soon!!!

    I definitely want to go in October to Banning. I hope to see you there. I went last Spring and it was a fun time. Such rare machines to play!

    The Golden State Pinball is definitely going to be epic. The facility looks awesome and I think pictures can't do it it justice without actually being there. Did Mike take the pics? I am getting excited already. It might be the festival that will be the ReplayFX of the West only for pinball. It still has the same layout as PAGG, but with bigger facilities. Awesome choice of venue.

    #185 1 year ago

    Bumping this to page one. Where it belongs.

    #186 1 year ago

    The pics do not do the venue justice. You will all be amazed when you see how much bigger the new venue is. It is a fair grounds so it has the same charm as the Dixon site. Another cool feature is at the main building there is a full kitchen that has a walk up order window from the exterior of the building next to the tables and chairs outside and it has one at the interior of the building so the food vendor will be able to service customers in or out.

    There are plenty of rest rooms, the covered area is going the make the swap meet extra nice. It has power to it so vendors can plug in a game for a potential customer. There is just so much good stuff to be excited about with this wonderful new location. Even at the dinner table yesterday my family was still talking about it. Everyone that attends the 2018 Golden State Pinball Festival will simply be amazed.

    Stay tuned pinheads. There is much more good stuff coming soon.

    #187 1 year ago

    Excited for this - also heard there will be able to be games outside in the covered area w/power so we can play games at night a-la Future Spa this year!

    On Tuesday evening, August 22, 2017 at the Dixon, CA City Council Meeting, the Northern California Pinball Association (NCPA) presented a check in the amount of $20,000.00 to the Dixon Teen Center. NCPA is moving their show to the Grape Festival grounds in Lodi, CA to make more room for more pinball machines, participants, and more fun. Over the last six years, the NCPA has donated over $140,000.00 to the Teen Center which represents 20% of their annual operating budget. NCPA has been very fortunate to work with many great people in the city of Dixon and the wonderful volunteers from the Teen Center. We wish them good luck as they move ahead with a new facility to benefit the local teens

    How awesome! So nice to read and see this!

    Just think how much more money we can raise for youth centers as more people attend the Golden State Pinball Festival. Very exciting to see that much money provided to teen centers from PAGG 2017.
