    3 Daze and a wake up!!!!

    #602 1 year ago

    Looks like a lot of rain this weekend

    I don’t know what that will mean for a lot of festivities like Sparkys BBQ, but hopefully it still happens and we can get a group pic like last year. Speaking of that, I made a bunch of 5”x10” prints of Arts photo of it from last year, I’ll have them at the BBQ (hopefully if its still on!) to give out to everyone that was in it.

    Sadly the BBQ will be the end of the weekend for me as I have unavoidable obligations. I will be there all day Thursday for set up though and all day Friday. Very slight chance I return Sunday with my son, but not counting on it.

    Well, at least it won’t be hot.

    #609 1 year ago

    Ugh RAIN? I guess I can't bring my truck and have to bring my wife's car. That means I can only bring home 1 game!

    I just changed my trailer reservation to an enclosed 5x8. I'm still bringing my game for campcade, even if we have to store them between playing I'm not giving up.

    Rain! Boo. Hopefully the pinball gods will bless us with some dry weather for people transporting by truck. My Mars Trek may not make it if the rain is really dumping!

    I have been working the midnight oil the past few weeks, and at the 11th hour, I finally finished this! Have one or two little tweaks to work out, but my minty fresh playfield swap Xenon is coming! Wohoo!

    Clues for the 2nd annual should be around like last year.

    #627 1 year ago

    I'm stopping in Sparks NV to meet with Rick from Planetary Pinball, that should be fun. We are both ex-HP.

    They own all the Bally/Midway licensing stuff. Should have a story to tell.

    #628 1 year ago
    Quoted from Mthomasslo:

    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.

    Brilliant! I did find the Credit Unit on the Motor Board. Didn't know it was there!

    Since I was following Clay's guide to EM's and his switch technique, I never thought that it would have that part. You learn something new each day!

    I will try to adjust the Zero Position contact tonight and see if I can get rid of switch.

    Thanks to Mthomasslo and pinballholder for their help!

    #633 1 year ago

    I'll be there this weekend with my Pinside badge around my neck. Please say hello if you see me. Especially those who we've messaged back and forth in the past. It's always good to put a face with the name or Pinside icon.

    #634 1 year ago

    Staged and ready to load, picked up ample tarps to keep things dry on the trip down from the foothills. See you all Friday!

    Are these games available for non tournament play on Saturday? I've never played Taxi and it's on my list of games I'd like to play.

    #648 1 year ago

    I'm staying in Ely tomorrow night.

    Talk about hospitality! I'm told that they have "mobile entertainment units" that visit your room all hours of the night hoping for a retainer.

    I'm going for the sleep, sorry!
