    Quoted from genex:

    ... Maybe a nice lineup of like at least 5? ...

    I would love to see a row of TNA at GSPF! Let's see how many we can get there.

    I may have new one available if it's paid for in advance and is at the show all weekend for play in the line up. Email me if interested.

    I'd love to see this. If someone was ready and had the cash maybe we could get an Alice Cooper too?

    Certainly possible. Mostly depends on if Spooky has them coming off the line or not.

    If it's at all possible, I will definitely do my best to make it happen.

    I can also confirm though, that Multimorphic's P³, Lexy Lightspeed-Escape from Earth will be there as well! =)

    I got the chance to play Lexi lightspeed at coin op when it was there. It's a fun and unique game.

    Looking forward to making my first trip to Lodi.

    hey hey! I haven't been on Pinside in forever but I am getting pumped now to see old friends!

    Reminder to give Goldenstatepin a follow on instagram and twitter (Although I am not so good at the tweets) and like us on facebook for photos, updates, and hopefully some contests.

    I didn't read this whole thread. The Smith family from Boise is coming.
    Any news on room deals? It looks like the Holiday Inn is booked on some of the nights.

    Best Western on the west side of town (roughly 15 min drive from show) still has rooms available at around $150 a night. Check their site out here: https://www.bestwestern.com/en_US/book/hotel-rooms.05645.html

    I just checked in with Hampton Inn in Lodi, which is real close to show, but their prices are really high now. Over $200 a night.

    Yikes.....thanks for the heads up!

    You're right; Hampton Inn is ridiculous. I just booked a room from them though and justified the price in my mind because 1) I only travel to two pinball shows a year and 2) The proximity to GSPF.

    Even with my Honor members discount, final cost for two days was $523. For a Hampton. In Lodi. Oof.

    Here's hoping next year they offer a special GSPF discount.

    Yeah I called and chatted with their sales manager a few times. They very much wanted to work with us but didn't have the capacity at the time (another function going on that weekend). Will keep working on building relationships with all the main hotels and get more group rates as our reputation builds.

    Mr Cheddar,

    When do you need volunteer sign ups and machines to be registered?

    (And you are welcome for the plug!)

    #314 1 year ago
    Quoted from jbovenzi:

    machines to be registered?

    I can speak to the call for games, we target mid March for our big push for games. That's when we turn on the sign up link and start the email and phone campaigns. Stay tuned!

    Wine & Roses is the nicest hotel in town! It's the hot spot for weddings all summer. Great restaurant and banquet facilities. Shocked it's only $350 a night.

    Quoted from hawkmoon:

    we have printed a LOT of flyers and business cards already, the crews have been handing them out when they are out promoting at local comic and science shows. I am sure there will be some stacks at the show that weekend as well.

    Thanks - I booked at Best Western too. See you there!

    #322 1 year ago

    If you're coming to Golden State why not take home a new in box game. We have special show pricing for many new titles. Send me a PM for details.

    #323 1 year ago
    Quoted from hawkmoon:

    No, not at the same time. The Dixon show will be later in the year, during the fall.

    Hey Gang,

    Just an update on hotel space, I checked yesterday and we still have rooms under our group rate at the local Holiday Inn (while they last). The critical bit is that you put in a group code of "PIN" to see our locked in rate.

    HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS
    1337 E Kettleman Lane
    Lodi, CA 95240
    209-210-0150
    Group code: PIN (must mention when making reservation).
    Minimum 2 night stay, $159 night.

    Cheers!

    Since Charlie is coming from Spooky should we try and have even more of their games on hand? I've brought my AMH the last couple years but only can bring one in my vehicle and am planning on TnA this year - but if I can get help may be able to bring AMH too

    Is Charlie's presence breaking news, or did I miss this announcement? I don't see this on the website, FB, or this thread.

    It would be awesome to have all the spooky titles. Borygard is bringing a TNA. I know a guy with an RZ. Maybe spooky will bring an Alice Cooper?

    As others have stated, and I am also confirming here, Spooky pinball will be represented By Charlie Emery at the Golden State Pinball Festival!
    So when you come to the show, stop by Spooky pinball, say hello and make sure to welcome Spooky pinball to their first West coast show.

    The show is right before my birthday, so the night prior, I'm treating myself to a VIP Weird Al Experience! Awesome seat, meet & greet, photos of us, autograph, Weird Al wristwatch, framed set list, pre show Weird Al Jeopardy game show and much more. No hits! No parody songs! The back of the T-shirt says it all!
