    Hey Guys! Looks like I'm going to be coming to TPF again this year (O YA! I am Stoked so Many games).

    So I think I should host another Meet and Greet Party for Pinside, and do the Badges Again! I'm going to open a Thread for the badges in a week or two to request those. (thread is now open! see herehttps://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/tpf-pinside-name-tag-and-lanyard#post-3019334)

    Ok Lets do 7pm Friday 18th At Wild Pitch! Please Post up if you will be coming and if you will be bringing any guests so I can get a rough count! As always I will buy the first round of drinks for everyone!

    Look forward to seeing you all again, Was bummed I missed Expo last year.

    Umm... I'm ok with wild pitch

    #3 3 years ago

    Bummer I won't be able to make this. I hope to make it to the next one.

    #4 3 years ago

    WP is conveniently across the street; that's it's only real draw. Too noisy; too busy.
    I'm in; but I have my badge - so "in theory" don't need one.

    Yes... But the Staff there is ummm wonderful

    #6 3 years ago

    I'll be there Thursday with nothing to do, so if you do a meet and greet Thursday night, I'm in. And put me down for a badge. Thanks for doing this!

    #7 3 years ago

    I'm gonna try and make it too!

    #8 3 years ago

    Pinside will have a booth at TPF. So that's a great place for badge distribution.

    I'll also have 3-4 games in the booth on free play.

    If everything goes absolutely perfect, maybe my Captain Nemo will be one of those games!

    #11 3 years ago

    Cool. It will be great to meet you again. I will be there and I already have a badge from last time.

    #12 3 years ago

    I'm in! There is also a Dave and Busters in the mall across the street. There are no pins but at least something haha We could maybe get a room or something there.

    Who's the ugly f**k on the right?

    #14 3 years ago

    There is also Tight Ends and Taphouse that are probably walking distance. Both are just ok. If enough people have cars, I think I could get us a private room at a bar about 1.5 miles away with a couple pool tables and arcades and private bar.

    I will have a car, with room for a few and not a big drinker.

    I'm ok with where ever you guys want.. I will throw a poll up on this thread

    #16 3 years ago

    I'm in - and wherever.

    #17 3 years ago

    I'm in +1

    #18 3 years ago

    My request - if this is around dinner time; please make sure the food is edible.
    I don't usually spend lots of time away for the show - so I like to kill many birds with one stone; I don't drink alcoholic beverages.

    #19 3 years ago

    Wild Pitch for sure. Let's not do this at a place people need to drive to or back from.

    Food was pretty good at Wild pitch I think.. I ate there twice but I don't remember

    #21 3 years ago

    I'm in. I had a blast last year

    #22 3 years ago
    Quoted from Gexchange:

    LOL.
    The food is "ok". Not something I'd be jonesin' for if it weren't for the eye candy.
    Wild Pitch is fine. I just didn't want us to go to a "bar" like had been offered.

    #23 3 years ago

    Look like Wild Pitch is going to be the Winner.. Now we just need to pick a night. I will wait to put up a poll on that until a bit closer when the calendar is out.. Unless people have an Idea If Friday or Sat night works better? Or a Lunch on Sat

    #24 3 years ago

    Are they having the auction on Saturday night again? I don't know if people care about that.

    #25 3 years ago

    Being that I'm employed by FUN! I can tell you at this point we are not conducting a Pinball Auction at this years TPF.
    As for myself I and a few others had full intentions of joining everyone for the meet and greet....but then noticed it conflicted with the Open Bar Happy Hour for Hotel Guests of the Embassy Suites....so we didn't make it.

    That being said, you may try to schedule a time not between 5-7pm on Friday & Saturday

    #26 3 years ago

    I like Friday over Saturday

    #27 3 years ago

    Yeah; I'd be for Friday, lunch or dinner. Saturday is just too busy with all the seminars and what not.
    Sat is prime time!

    #28 3 years ago

    I would be ok with like 7pm on Friday if you guys all are?

    2 weeks later
    #29 3 years ago

    Ok Lets do 7pm Friday 18th At Wild Pitch

    #30 3 years ago

    JJ,

    Tpf schedule of events is now posted on their website.
    To help minimize schedule conflicts, may I suggest these times to consider:
    Fri 5-6 pm
    Sat 1-2 pm, and/or 8-10 pm.

    No drive to locations please.
    1st choice: Wild Pitch
    2nd choice: other cool sports bar / bar-n-grill within walking distance (Tap House).
    3rd choice: hotel bar

    #31 3 years ago

    This time puts it at the same time as the heighway pinball seminar. I would like to attend both.

    #35 3 years ago

    #36 3 years ago

    I'm in and please put me down for a badge.

    #37 3 years ago

    jfesler and armouredhobbit are in, and badges would be lovely.

    #38 3 years ago

    I'd be up for a Pinside badge but can't commit to the meet and greet. Would be happy to pick up at the Pinside booth like Marcus suggested.

    #39 3 years ago

    Kansas City is going to represent at this Fest. I am told there are about 50 of us going. Is there anyone not attending from KC. lol

    #40 3 years ago

    Badges, we need steenking badges?

    #41 3 years ago

    You can print a badge right off your "My Pinside" page

    #42 3 years ago

    I can make it again this year.

    Fyi : space is very very limited there.
    We were spread out in back last year.
    So have to bounce around to hang with dif folks.

    Be great if someone could call ahead & reserve some tables, if they'd support that.

    Also, will be there Thurs night if folks want to do something then too.

    Cheers

    Beats me, but we could check around.
    As a backup...
    Might be some pins at TPF already

    #45 3 years ago

    I'll be in Thursday as well.

    #46 3 years ago

    Noted in the agenda

    #47 3 years ago

    Arriving Thursday lunchtime.....

    #48 3 years ago

    No public places around that part of town with pins. DFW for the most part is lacking public pinball locations as there are only enough to count on a single hand.

    Bars here close at 2am. However some city ordinances (Frisco for example) may close down at 1am.

    I'll be coming to the show either Thursday after work (5pm). Unless we decide to take our games on Thursday.
    We (FUN!) are taking 12 pins to the show, plus I'm bringing 3 games from my personal collection for the Color DMD area (Tron LE, Iron Man and Metallica Pro)
