here goes...

Wed, Mar 25, 2015:

Already getting things ready for TPF 2015.
Just loaded a pin (with tons of amazing help, let me add) into the trailer to put on the show floor.
Have a ColorDMD to take up there and install in it (hopefully Friday).
Going to buy some odds & ends tomorrow, select some fav cigars from the collection ,
stock up on beer, fuzzy bunny slippers, hand sanitizer, book on how to play pinball for dummies, munchies and other stuff i'm going to completely forget. Need to get a big beer mug to carry around with it's own topper so i can keep a steady tanked mojo in play.

hmmm what else...

...more to come.

Well, looks like the main highway from Austin to Dallas just got shut down today.
An 18 wheeler collided with an overpass beam under construction a few hours ago.
No info when hwy 35 will open up again.
It is covered in car & concrete debris.
My pin has been diverted to drive around this mess.

ColorDMD is ready & topper is ready.
The adhesive on the topper could use a little extra oomph, IMO

When/where is cigar night? I bought some to bring down.

#15 4 years ago

Dang... Forgot beer mug. Might have 1 around here.

#16 4 years ago

Should be a blast this weekend.

#17 4 years ago

are beers allowed in the fest?

Quoted from benheck:

hi,

i think this is the current (or latest i know of):
"Big Smoke" is Friday night @ 10pm, on the hotel bar patio (1st floor).
Of course a repeat gathering can always happen Saturday night too.

...and last year there were a few folks out in the Swap Meet Sat morning having a few too

Look forward to meeting you finally in person.

#19 4 years ago

Well, I know what's now going to be for breakfast on the drive up to TPF tomorrow

Officially or unofficially ?

#21 4 years ago

#22 4 years ago

Come to Atlanta at least for the SFGE.

#28 4 years ago

I've been talking to the family about it! Hoping to!

i have no idea...
you know, ages ago there were big areas in/around Dallas that were "dry", and folks had to belong to a drinking-club in order to buy booze. Don't know if that's still the situation, or if it exists around where TPF is. Just putting on the radar, just in case.

#30 4 years ago

A while back I had to go to some burb called Lewisville a lot and they had a lot of alcohol. Not sure if that's near the show but I imagine you'll be fine!

#31 4 years ago

wow... looks like i'll need to take a smoking jacket for the nights.

Lots of games already but only 75 or so set up at this time. I did manage to play test a WWLE and a Whoa Nellie game so that was good. Your TOM is waiting for you in the DFW club area. They know it's here in your name so you can check in at the ticket booth when you get here.

#39 4 years ago
