    Quoted from jeffro01:

    Somehow I missed this thread... This sucks... My family and I were REALLY looking forward to bringing our RV this year but it's all sold out and I'm waitlisted. Still can't figure out how I screwed this up... Such is life I suppose... Clearly my reoccurring "check the website" event didn't work out...
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Maybe there are some hotel rooms left, or an Airbnb. Do not miss this show.

    I just saw that the Seattle Comic Con has been "postponed" and there is some discussion about the San Diego one - are there any discussions about cancelling/postponing the pinball show?

    #261 1 year ago

    Anyone have a nice Torpedo Alley they want to sell me at the show?

    Remember that one time I served tiki drinks at the bbq and got pulled over just outside the show with the whole back seat full of open liquor bottles? The cops just about shit and administered a full field sobriety test. Anybody down for more tiki drinks?

    Yes. Yes I am.

    #269 1 year ago

    Seeing the hand sanitizers all over the show floor over the past couple years was very nice to see and well utilized! Back in the Dixon days I returned home with a bug two years in a row, Lodi so far has been cold and flu free for me. I certainly hope this threat doesn't hamper sign ups or attendance, I've really been looking forward to this show!

    I know a potent rum punch recipe that's very tasty. Will aim to bring enough for at least 30.

    #275 1 year ago

    OK,Pinheads UPDATE: The Governor, of Calif ,G N,just stated that all events over 250 people should be cancelled !!! So should we limit attendance??? Thoughts???

    Given the information that continues to come in, I think limiting it to 250 would be a self fulfilling prophecy. A couple of my friends have already cancelled their hotel rooms.

    Four days ago, I was 100% in; today, not so much. Stern just cancelled their tournament.

    I wonder if GSPF has some sort of insurance that covers events like this? I'd rather see it postponed to around August or September than outright cancelled.

    Quoted from hawkmoon:

    N,just stated that all events over 250 people should be cancelled...

    Until the end of March...
    Ride the storm out, Cowboys... I am still all in!

    Love you, Mark...You're always the upbeat voice of reason!

    I'm hanging on to my hotel room for now. Super happy I can cancel 24 hours in advance. I contemplated saving 20 bucks by getting a "guaranteed" room with no cancellation.

    Firstly, Gavin Newsome is an idiot whom no one should listen to.

    Scondly, we've got lots of time. Give it a month at least then reevaluate. China, ground zero,already stabilized.

    #284 1 year ago

    lets All be patient, calm, and not post rumors or conjecture.
    By May this should all be done and over with.
    It’s not the end of the world.
    It’s a flu virus. Like many before it it will pass.
    Be safe, wash your hands a lot.
    Be patient, be kind.
    Play your games and love each other.

    While I disagree with your assessment of Newsome, most of it anyhow, I do agree that we have time to make a decision regarding the GSPF...

    64 days until Showtime!!!!
    Keep the faith brothers and sisters.
    Until I hear otherwise, the countdown will continue.
    Long live the silver ball!!

    #287 1 year ago

    Think about it this way Boiz: All these other closures and shutdowns now are gonna save our show later!

    Wash yer damn hands. A lot. Cough and sneeze into yer elbow or shirt. Quit shaking hands and slapping 5. I've been working in a freaking petri dish (middle school) for almost 30 years.

    Ride the storm out, Mangs!

    All in

    #288 1 year ago

    I have a plan.

    Yup. I heard today that the banks are in short supply. I’ve been thinking about doing just that since I heard this.

    And we are what, 6 months behind China in all of this, thanks to an idiot who isn’t Gavin?

    Do the math. If we “stabilize” in 5-6 months it’s gonna be a rough summer. “China is getting over it” is something I keep hearing but I don’t see why that would make anybody think this wraps up in a month.

    Dear Pinball Friends and Family,

    We appreciate all the questions and concerns that have been raised in the last several days and weeks as the coronavirus, COVID-19, situation continues to evolve and grow. The Northern California Pinball Association board has been active daily in discussing options and trying to find a responsible path forward that will ensure public safety and let the Golden State Pinball Festival continue as planned. We are using CDC guidelines as well as information from the California Department of Public Health and the local San Joaquin Public Health Services department.

    Our goal is to be completely transparent with all of you and take the appropriate actions as needed when they are needed, but not before. Unlike some of the recent show cancelations, we have more time, over two months in fact. So as of right now, the Festival is scheduled to continue as originally planned.

    Having said that, your safety and your family’s safety is paramount. We will continue to monitor and assess daily and based on governmental recommendations and common sense, we will adjust as needed.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Northern California Pinball Association
    Proud Presenters of the Golden State Pinball Festival

    PS
    We know this is a difficult time for many folks as lives are disrupted. Please stay positive, at the end of the day, this is Pinball and while it plays a fun role in our lives, there is a bigger picture here. Please keep your comments constructive or positive so as to not impact those truly suffering.

    And if things evolve in the next 2 months to be in favor of the show going on,
    anyone who is feeling a little under the weather or just getting over a cold or flu, or is sick, please just
    bite the bullet and just stay away.
    There will be another show next year or PinAGoGo in the fall.
