Quoted from yfz450:
Saturday I'm off, but not worth the drive up there for one day.
Sure it is!!
Good man Mainelycoasters! Every pin you bring is that much closer to your "second" VPCab!
Calling all Pinsiders! With the show only four days away we are in dire need of volunteers to man several Security Stations (sit in a chair and look for badges and wristbands. Even a Boob can do that!). The security schedule is in 2hr rotations as to break up the monotony. Available slots are as follows:
Free Play Rooms (6p-8p)(8p-10p)(10p-12p)
Vendor Hall (4p-6p)(6p-8p)
Free Play Rooms (all two hour shifts between 8a-12a)
After Party (8p-10p)(10p-12p)(12p-2a)
Breakdown: Vendor Hall: Sat between 8p-12p and Sun morning between 7a-11a.
Remember, volunteering for 4+ hours get you free admission for that day, a Pintastic Logo T-shirt, and a 2016 John Youssi Show Poster (not the 2015 poster as noted on the Pintastic site. Even Gabe isn't that cheap!). Volunteering 8+ hrs gets you all that swag plus a 2nd admission (for a guest or to be used for the following day) and one admission to the exclusive Friday Night After Party! Even though a minimum of 4hrs is required for the swag, any 2hr shift you volunteer for would be greatly appreciated. If interested please PM me or sign-up at the Pintastic website rather than posting your intent in this thread. The schedule will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis so not all volunteers will be required. I will send out a follow-up confirmation to those that are scheduled. Thanx in advance! - Dan
After spending 20hrs a day for the past three days on my feet I am just now logging onto Pinside to catch-up on the postings. I plan to post a more heartfelt thanx to the volunteers that worked both Security and Technical Support but for now I want to say a simple "thank you!". As much as providing a game in the Free Play area this show would not exist without the efforts of the volunteers. From people signing up on the Pintastic website, to people walking up to me and asking "how can I help". From first timers that could only attend for half the day and "still" volunteer their time to people that work other shows from neighbouring states wanting to see Pintastic succeed (thanx Tim!!!). And a special thanx to ForceFlow for posting all these wonderful pictures (I think you may be getting a call from the Pintastic team in the near future regarding Pintastic 2017) - Dan
Like Gabe said, I didn't spend enough time in the room to notice. I think I spent a total of 12hrs in the room from Thur - Sun.
I spoke to several attendees that felt there were no "show deals" to be had in the Vendor Hall. Some said they'd get better deals on-line even after paying for shipping. Anyone else feel this way as well?
Quoted from mainelycoasters:
I would do it in a more permanent way....any way to put in a larger door?
Hey Dave - Yes, the next step is to cut into the concrete walls and remove 2" on either side then install a new 30" door and frame (that's as large as I can fit leading to the basement). I believe my wife was hesitant to do so sooner knowing that restricted access would limit the number of pins I brought home.
Quoted from edcianci:
BREAKING NEWS - Ed is an idioted
Ed - In the hopes of making you feel better not only did I not notice it as well but I filled the bottle three times before I realized there was a piece of paper in it. Imagine how hard it was for me to get that soggy piece of paper out that 1" opening!
