    I'm still looking for delivery from the show to Raleigh-Durham. TIA.

    See Don Bosworth. He moves games for a living and lives in Raleigh. PM me if you need his contact info. I know he will be in Atlanta for the show.

    We will be at SFGE this weekend. We aren't doing a booth this year, but we will bring some assorted rings for sale.

    If anyone wants to pick up an order, place it on the site and let me know via email.
    I'll refund the shipping cost and bring it with me.

    Do people collect pinball tshirts? I have a D&D Pinball and Expo Brawl shirt that I don't wear (both new and size Med) that I would rather give to a pinballer than goodwill and can bring to SFGE if anyone's interested?

    Quoted from genex:

    Gene, I'll definitely take them if you don't want them.

    Thanks

    OK I'll bring them - packing now!

    34 hours and I will be unloading games at the show! Can't wait!

    #208 3 years ago
    Quoted from Schwaggs:

    34 hours and I will be unloading my games at the show! Can't wait!

    Looking forward to it Jon! I've got five games ready to go so far. No last minute stress this year!

    #209 3 years ago

    BadBrick is coming in Thursday night, he was telling me today at work he is going to try and come down and help people unload and setup.

    I won't be able to get there until around 2pm on Friday, I'm just a spectator this year.

    We can definitely use some load in help, more the merrier!

    #211 3 years ago

    I have 6 off-legs and ready to go. Working on Andromeda (newly-broken left EOS switch) now. This is exactly what killed my Fathom at SFGE last year:

    I think your math is wrong, and you're scaring me.

    #213 3 years ago

    Three tips I learned from last year:

    1) Set up your cordless drill with a 5/8" socket (and set it to very low torque). Finish with a normal socket wrench.

    2) Mark which legs go to which game. Nothing sadder than an Embryon with Stern legs

    3) These 24-inch "Gear Ties" from Home Depot are great for keeping legs together:

    Ugh! I had the main water line spring a leak, which put water on my basement floor... and my gameroom is in my basement.

    Luckily no arcade damage --- but have been tearing out flooring, drywall and insulation.

    I had to move a ton of stuff and all my pins are blocked...

    BUT! I'll get IJ and WH20 to SFGE! I will overcome this challenge.

    #215 3 years ago
    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    I won't be able to get there until around 2pm on Friday, I'm just a spectator this year.

    Too bad for us, you had such nice games last year. But hopefully you will enjoy it a whole lot more not working pins the whole time or working on deals

    #216 3 years ago
    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    I won't be able to get there until around 2pm on Friday,

    That's about the same time I expect to roll into town. It's over 9 hours from home but I'm using family at the mid-point as a pit-stop. Maybe I'll start a thread asking who is taking the longest road trip to the show.

    -visit me at SFGE to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC pinball resets or for Williams System 3-7 sound board solutions

    Quoted from sckurk:

    I still enjoyed the hell out of it! The main driver for not bringing games this year was my wife wanting to come. I decided to make it a full on vacation. We are going out for dinner Saturday night for a bit on a date.

    One day I'll have to bring the SST back to SFGE, I've done some upgrades...

    Next year I'll be bringing the Spaceballs with me though, so that will be fun.

    Quoted from swampfire:

    Doh! You are right, its actually 65 hours and counting....

    Quoted from sckurk:

    Looking forward to it Jon! I've got five games ready to go so far. No last minute stress this year!

    I'm in a panic... for some reason I decided to do a complete shop job on one of the machines I'm taking to the show starting tonight.... its all in pieces in the tumbler and ultrasonic at the moment...

    #219 3 years ago

    Also will ask here but at the show as well - anyone know anyone in Auburn/Opelika, AL that has pins? Whenever I visit my parent's I go through withdrawal

    #220 3 years ago

    Anybody know if the Mario Kart 8 tourney is still taking place and if so when? I do not see it on the last agenda, I think it was on a previous one and my 13 year old wants to play. Thanks!

    #221 3 years ago

    I'm still hoping to be there for a little bit, but my entire family is fighting against me. I've got a husband with severe migraines, a dad with kidney stones, a mother-in-law just out of foot surgery and home alone, and a dog having seizures. I've forewarned everyone to be well on Saturday, because I need a pin-cation. So if you see a tired-looking tall blonde chick walking around, that may be me.

    Either way, someone post lots of pictures if you can.

    Would really love to see you at the show Blondetall. In fact, hubby and I were talking just last night about seeing if we could spot you at the show. Figured we'd look for the tallest blonde woman in the room . On the opposite spectrum, I'm pretty sure I'll be the shortest brunette woman in the room. This show was an absolute blast last year and I am really looking forward to it.

    #223 3 years ago

    If my mom can sneak away, she's coming too. So there will be 2 tall blondes walking around. Last year she was trying to tell everyone she was my sister... I have a namebadge somewhere and will try to wear it. Hopefully I'll see you there!

    Hi David, it is at 6:00PM on Friday. You can find it, along with all our other events and seminars, listed in our program: http://southernfriedgameroomexpo.com/SFGE_ProgramGuide2015.pdf

    #225 3 years ago

    I will have Escalera's at the show for purchase so you can take one home from the show. No shipping! Bringing a sampling of the various models to see and try out. Look for our booth!

    I hope everyone gets to feeling better. Kidney stones are the worst. Very few things have brought me to my knees in pain, kidney stones is definitely one.

    Please stop me if I walk by you this year and don't see you! Unless it's midday Saturday, you'll get to meet my wife too.

    And with this reply, another bump to the top!

    Just added some new games to the list as people have revised what they were able to bring out to the show.

    We've got classic KISS and modern KISS coming to SFGE now! The official Stern launch party is on
    Saturday. Also, Junk Yard, which I'm looking forward to trying out.

    2 days and 19 hours... everybody ready??

    Thanks. Is there a thread I've missed that lists games that will be for sale?

    #232 3 years ago

    Will Pinball News be there or is someone taking pictures on their behalf?

    There was no coverage last year.

    #233 3 years ago
    Quoted from genex:

    I live in Auburn, Alabama, but alas have sold my pinball's as room became an issue, so I am really looking forward to this weekend to say the least. I do have a buddy that has an original Black Knight but other than this I would Like to know of anyone as well, that would be interesting.

    #234 3 years ago

    You all are coming to the Pinside meetup at 9:30 PM on Friday night in the Dogwood room right?

    No obligation to stay more than a few minutes, but it's always cool to meet the people behind the pinsiders!

    #235 3 years ago

    Thanks. I doubt I can get there, but I still might buy something and have Don at pinballsonthemove ship it.

    #236 3 years ago
    Quoted from Magic_Mike:

    There was no coverage last year.

    As far as I know, Martin from Pinball News is coming to cover the show.
    He really does an amazing job and we're pretty honored to have him here.

    I always read his coverage of other shows. Makes it a little less painful to miss out on them...

    #237 3 years ago
    Quoted from gentrsa:

    My Black Knight will be there. Not much original is left, though - It's all CPR / Mayfair / Kohut.

    #239 3 years ago

    2 days and 4 hours until launch!!!

    #240 3 years ago

    weren't there more pins last year ? list on webpage say 93 or something & I thought last year it was closer to 200 nevertheless I am stoked to be going again

    #241 3 years ago
    Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:

    last year it was closer to 200

    Here's a snapshot of the game list right after the show:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20140720191507/http://www.southernfriedgameroomexpo.com/index.php/games2014/

    There were about 100 pins last year. I think the quality will be even better this year.

    #242 3 years ago

    Hey, I just rediscovered this great set of professional pictures from last year (the photographer is Juan Jusino):

    There are 10 more pins coming that we don't know the identity of yet, plus probably a few more that will show up on the day of the show. I think all 10 of these will be for sale and in very nice shape. Definitely a few more than last year.

    ( now I just need to figure out where to put them all.... )

    #245 3 years ago
    Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:

    Cool thanks Swampfire hope to meet you this year

    Make sure to come by the Dogwood room at 9:30 on Friday night to meet a bunch of Pinsiders!

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    #248 3 years ago
    Quoted from genex:

    Yes, I'll be 12 and smoking a Carlton. .

    I'm the polar opposite of my avatar. I'm a middle aged fat guy.

    Here is a picture, but I'm married so don't start PM'ing me with a bunch of proposals and stuff.

    #250 3 years ago

    I'm the gray haired guy who will be kicking everybody's ass in the tournament!

    Just kidding of course, but last year I did take 4th in the main and 2nd in Classics.(That darn Adam Lefkoff feller!)
