    Quoted from Phat_Jay:

    There is a distinct possibility mgc could become the cats meow of the Midwest with expo MIA.

    I wouldn't count Expo MIA yet.

    Quoted from jar155:

    I'm surprised that Pinball Expo lasted as long as it did given how many horror stories pop up online EVERY SINGLE YEAR i

    Not everybody reads Rec Games Pinball. Not everybody reads Pinside.

    Many just go for the pinball. Which they will keep doing.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Seems to me that Berk knows exactly what he is doing

    That remains to be seen. His arcade show wasn't a success and he had help with it.

    Quoted from scott_freeman:

    Seminars / fireside chats - (who and how many)

    The LTG : ) Show with extremely limited edition mug will be at Mike's show.

    Quoted from MrBally:

    To be fair, Mike heard the criticism and took it to heart the last few years. He was on his best behavior in 2016 and 2017. In 2016, I noticed he looked a little upset one time, but never blew a gasket when I was around. In 2017, he was always nice. I had to work with him on some stored games in 2016 and since I was part of the repair clinic in 2017, I saw him a lot. Believe it or not, he seemed nicer than Rob to deal with and I'm not knocking Rob.

    And it's not easy keeping your cool after 16 hours of everybody needing something at once all day.

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    And as usual, Pinball expo schedule of events probably won't be updated until a month before.

    According to recent posts, Rob has control of the website. And Mike has posted a new one for his show coming soon.

    Quoted from goatdan:

    Rob wants Mike to have no part in the show, and from what I understand has told him that he is unwilling to let him attend.

    Well that plain sucks.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    It sounds like it may be time to sit out this show completely

    That is how I feel if Mike isn't even allowed to attend.

    Quoted from Trekie:

    Didn't Mike do the same with Gene C. wouldn't let him attend?

    As time went by Mike also bent over backwards to have Gene come back to Expo.
