    Yeah no standard or widebody glass made it into the shipment at all. HD glass is not part of this as it ships from Stern

    Dig this.
    It’s good.

    It is GREAT! If I were in front of the camera we would still be shooting takes.

    Such great community support this event has, outstanding karma.

    Can't wait - how many days now?

    #556 1 year ago

    5 days and a wake up!!!!

    Quoted from pinfixer:

    I have a extra reservation for a king room at the Hampton Inn that I do not need. Arriving Thursday, departing Sunday. $664.84 is the rate quoted total for the nights inclusive of tax. I wanted to pass it along to pinsiders first, but if I don't get a taker by Sunday night I'll cancel the reservation and let it go back to the hotel.
    PM me privately if you want to have me transfer this reservation to you.

    PM sent.

    #558 1 year ago

    See you there.

    #560 1 year ago
    Quoted from Cheddar:

    at this point looks like Mad World

    Mad World was a lock, now it's giving me fits right before the show. Don't want to disappoint the fans, but might have a last minute pinch-hitter for it.

    Will come up with something to satisfy the crowds (Maybe Gottlieb Team One !)

    It begins!

    Amazing how things work out.

    This was the first time in many years that I was going to miss this yearly expo because I waited too late to snag a hotel. Many thanks to Pinfixer for hooking up a fellow Pinsider!

    Anyone interested in a bottle share Saturday afternoon - I know there are quite a few folks around here who appreciate good beer... I'm happy to host at our campsite if there is interest - All will be welcome, but everyone should plan to bring a 750 or 2 16oz cans of something you are excited about and is probably not something you can get at Safeway (see photo below for what I'm planning on bringing)... though of course nobody would be turned away. DM me if you would like in. Mmmmmm Beer and pinball...

    Just finished a pinball night,with the crew test driving the games for the show and campcade.
    Show: Excalibur, Tile Fight, Big Daddy, Fireball '72
    Camp: Oh Boy, Grand Prix

    Pinballlew took $5 from me playing Oh Boy, and set high score on it AND Grand Prix, which he rolled. jbovenzi's Fireball '72 is a screamer.
    All games performed admirably and are now deemed show-ready.

    See everybody soon; gotta go reserve my trailer.

    General question for all you festival experts.

    When you move your older Bally's that pre-date backbox hinges, do you move the backboxes separately or wrap them up together?

    I see many of you wrap with moving plastic and moving blankets. Just curious how everyone does this!

    Most wrap them together.
    A tie down or ratchet strap with moving blankets.
    Some plastic wrap too.

    Since I am almost always moving machines by mice elf, I move them separately, wrapped in blankies. Even when I had a Speakeasy, which has a hinged head, I slid it off the hinges to move it. Just too heavy for me to manhandle both together up and down my stairs.

    A couple of times, I've taken out the playfield to get that sucker back up the stairs.

    Hey everyone, just a reminder.
    There are still volunteer spots open.
    The show only happens because you make it happen.
    Please sign up for 1 volunteer spot during the weekend.
    See you all in 5 days!!!!

    #594 1 year ago

    Hey guys. I will likely be at the show on Saturday.

    I am selling my mostly restored Funhouse and can it bring it to show if anyone is looking for a nice one.

    Send me a message if interested for details.

    I look forward to coming again. As always my 4:20 friendly pinside members are welcome to ask me to smoke them out. I’ll be bringing plenty of bud.

    A little late to the party but count me in!

    Quoted from practicalsteve:

    Why am I not surprised I know two of the people that gave this a thumbs up

    Now at least 3.

    Regretfully, Mr. Mad World will not be appearing during 2019 GSPF. As the rest of the world goes to heck in a hand basket, perhaps he will make an appearance next year. Mr. Cheddar, can you please substitute GTB Team One for that game?

    Since Team One is late model Gottlieb Add-A-Ball and not easily set to free play, I wired a microswitch to one of the Coin Door, coin wiring switches to start a game. it will have to stick through the front of the door to let my people play.

    Team challenge: If anyone comes up with a more elegant free play solution, I am willing to have them modify my game (without drilling holes please).
    As always, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions...

    #599 1 year ago

    although team one is an aab, it still has a credit unit on the motor board, similar to the semicircular units used on mid 70’s Gotliebs. To covert to free play, just short or close the zero position contact, or disconnect the subtract coil.
