    Sooooo excited! Last year, I got really sick during GSPF and bailed after a day.

    This year I'm definitely attending both GSPF and CAX.

    #110 46 days ago

    #112 45 days ago

    THE ROLLING STONES ARE COMING TO LODI!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok, maybe not the band, but at least the Bally machine.

    In the spirit of GSPF, I am working on my Bally Rolling Stones project and hope to bring it to the show. Larry Kaye did an outstanding job of repainting the cabinet (I highly recommend him to all) and I got busy over the holidays putting the machine back together.

    It's not as glorious as fireball2 Stern Catacomb, but hey, I'm trying! My playfield is kind of worn and I just have not been able to score a nice one yet. Here's hoping that I can have it fully working by May.

    Bump for the home crowd!

    #114 38 days ago

    Hoping to find a way to bring a 5th machine to the show this year. Keeping my fingers crossed for the weather to cooperate as well!

    Would love to see that machine at the show. I'd be even more excited if it was for sale

    Quoted from Cheddar:

    Not this one I’m having too much fun playing it! I hope it sees a lot of play if I can find a way to transport it down to the show and I’m sure there’s a few people who wouldn’t mind seeing this very early sample machine in person.

    #117 35 days ago

    Just booked my room!

    Because the Zin Festival is the same weeked as GSPF, I suggest reserving a room ASAP.

    #119 32 days ago

    134 days until Showtime!

    #120 32 days ago
    Quoted from mrgone:

    134 days until Showtime!

    A lot of pinball projects can find their way into our hands in that time! This show is going to be great!

    #121 32 days ago

    Silver Ball Campcade gon' be hoppin'! hawkmoon is talking about branging his Rob Zombie... Oh Boy will be there for your gambling pleasure, a Space Shuttle for playing and for sale... There's even talk of a some racing... hmmm. And I haven't even heard from Aaron yet!
    When do camp reservations open up?

    #122 32 days ago

    Just checked... looks like we're about a month out from camp reservations, right Seth?

    #123 31 days ago
    Quoted from mrgone:

    134 days until Showtime!

    I believe this is not accurate, I calculate 119 days today.

    #124 31 days ago
    Quoted from Pinballlew:

    I believe this is not accurate, I calculate 119 days today.

    You may be correct sir. I originally calculated the numbers at the end of last year’s show.
    I will recalculate when time permits.

    #125 31 days ago

    Recalculated, if you count today we are at 119 days until Showtime!!!

    #126 31 days ago
    Quoted from fireball2:

    Just checked... looks like we're about a month out from camp reservations, right Seth?

    Yep, you nailed it...we will open things up no later than early March. We are working on trying to fit more campers.

    Is it going to rain this time?

    #130 29 days ago

    Still working on Bally Rollings Stones. Some fine tuning to do and touch up, but coming along nicely.

    Lots of new stuff added to this box. I just did a running expenditure total and I really stepped into it with both feet!

    Will bring to the show, but if anyone lets me trade it + cash for a Beatles Gold, I will let them show it off!

    #131 29 days ago

    Cool. The only game I know of that has metal posts that score points when you hit them.
    Cool feature that really should have been used more.

    #132 29 days ago
    Quoted from mark532011:

    Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the rain stays away this year.

    Sounds good. Looking forward to reservations opening up!

    104 days until Showtime!

    #136 13 days ago

    101 days! Woooooooooooooooo!

    #137 13 days ago

    100 Days until Showtime!!!!!!

    #138 12 days ago

    Camping Reservations be getting close. The Campcade is expanding a bit this year, and the campground looks like it's gonna be more popular than ever; be ready, my brotato Seth, there's gonna be some wrangling

    100 days means you best get working on your games. I'm thinking Devil Riders, Title Fight (of course), and Catacomb. How's that for your 3 mfg variety pack? Campcade Titles: Oh Boy (duh), Space Mission (for sale), and mebbe ALI's Boogie (also for sale).

    I also have a CPR Space Shuttle backglass for sale that I could bring to the show.

    100 days is gonna go like that, so git to fixing and prepping...

    Party on.

    #139 12 days ago
    Quoted from mark532011:

    Is it going to rain this time?

    No. But we don't care! We rocked it last time under the tents in the campcade. But, no. No rain. I have decreed, and it will be done.

    Why is this show not listed as an upcoming event on mrpinball.com?

    #141 12 days ago
    Quoted from RTS:

    Why is this show not listed as an upcoming event on mrpinball.com?

    Because it’s the best kept secret in pinball.

    Has anyone stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Lodi?

    I usually stay at the Hampton Suites but decided to switch it up because Holiday Inn Express has a fridge and microwave. Now I'm reading mixed reviews. Thinking about switching back.

    there is a brand new Days Inn and La Quinta in Galt (about 10 minutes north). Might be worth a try

    Thanks! I'll probably stay in Lodi as I plan on consuming many adult beverages and will be Ubering to and from the festival.

    Hoping for a much better time this year with no freezing weather, flu bug, hours long freeway snarls and stolen iPhone.

    or torrential rain, leaking roofs

    but you will have so many pinball machines you won't know which one to play first!

    And don't forget the liquid death! I expect to see a lot of that this year!

    #147 10 days ago

    98 days pinheads. Get those games waxed and stock up on beer.

    Last year, wasn't bad at all.
    Comfortable, clean and quiet.
    Decent free breakfast spread too.

    woohoo - here's for no rain so we can do the campsite pin golf!
