Quoted from Jared:
Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend. I am checking into the hotel early tomorrow afternoon. I am always easy to find. TPF, my favorite pinball event of the year.
Why do you activate and deactivate your account at will? Pretty hard to take you serious anymore.
Great first day! Bring games to TPF and come early. If you like to meet and greet, there is lots of fun to have before the pinball begins. Great time last night with the Pinside crew and the Louisiana delegation at Wild Pitch.
Highlights so far for me.
Quoted from t3amaw3s0m3:
Does anyone have more details as to the seminars taking place at TPF? The site doesn't say much except for who the speaker is at any given time. I'd like to know what they'll be talking about (most interested in anyone talking about restorations & repairs, the olden days, or R&D matters), and if any of you recommend listening to anyone in particular.
Best I could do with my phone.
Whenever I'm not at a show, I think "Man, why don't people post more pictures/reactions/info/stories/etc" -- then, if I go to a show, after it's over I think "Crap, I completely forgot to post pictures/reactions/info/stories/etc". It's so easy to just get wrapped up in being at the show and not post anything - those who do are the real MVPs (to non attendees).
Just touched down in the land of the delta blues in the middle of the pouring rain.
Quoted from cooked71:
Are those super short legs on that creech? Or is that the point? Or is it the weird angle?
They are super short legs..... Not sure if it is because they wanted it to be normal height on the pedestal or of they used the pedestal to make it normal height.
Six of one, half dozen of the other?
walked around inside TPF late last night. this is going to be great, as usual. However, one game jumped out at me. it was stunning. TBL! as i was staring at them (2), Jaap came up and we chatted. He said they will be shipping very soon! good for all you buyers! i was in til my money was suddenly returned. then i thought i should probably wait til i see the code. i will still wait for code, but does the game ever look great!!! the bowling alley looks amazing too.
I'm taking bets on when this thread passes the "official" tpf thread....
Pretty sure labnip could manage that single-handedly.
Speaking of people with better halves...
Beelz & his should stay at the main hotel next year

Thanks for mentioning it. I booked early enough to do that, but I'm really a quiet guy and can only take crowds and noise for so long. One of my biggest pet peeves is people stumbling loudly down a hotel hallway in the middle of the night waking me up. I'm grumpy enough without the added sleep deprivation. I'm at the Homewood Suites a half-mile walk away...but we'll stay at the show tonight as late as us old folk can take it.
Thanks again for your Texas hospitality last night!
After cranking the vol up & testing out GOTLE yesterday...
I woke up with that theme song playing in my head.
Good thing I totally dig that song.
Of all the shows, that's one where I actually enjoy watching & listening to the intro before it starts, instead of fast forwarding.
