    Hey - I just discovered this thread and the expo. I feel like I am so out of the loop sometimes..sigh.
    Looks like fun - and I can't wait to meet some of the group above the border, I hear you guys are serious about your pinball scores.

    #64 3 years ago

    I bought my ticket and booked my flights! Can't wait! Games list looks amazing lots that are on my bucket list of games to try!

    Correct...plus you'll need to purchase an Expo pass to gain entry to the venue.

    I could sign him up to take scores. I hear he can be bribed.

    Hey speaking of that! Is there a volunteer list for scorekeepers yet? I'd be down for 4hrs.

    #81 3 years ago

    VFO is thrilled to announce that DJ Mary Mac will be performing at our exclusive VIP Party Friday night! Mary Mac started DJing in clubs in early 2000, and was one of a handful of DJs in Canada pioneering the UK breakbeat sound. What's even cooler? She's a hardcore pinhead that will also be competing in Vancouver FlipOut.

    Strange, I was looking at the calendar view and it didn't show anything for those dates, but it is indeed in the list. False alarm.

    Going to try to get there this year , just depends my work schedule . Are there usually pins for sale there or do people bring their pins there to sell ? Never been to the flip out before.

    Flipout is worth taking the day / weekend / week off work for!

    There was a few good deals last year. Great show, and you are close. Totally worth the trip.

    #91 3 years ago

    Have been trying to find a way to make the weekend in Vancouver work and decided the best way is to bring the whole family with me. (5 of us) However when I phoned Holiday Inn about the room I booked I have a King room in the FlipOut block... the block is now sold out.

    So wondering if anyone has a room with 2 Queen beds in the block that would be willing to switch for my King. The rate is the same I believe.

    If I go I need to use points to fly us all there and my time and options for using them is running out so I appreciate if anyone can PM me right away if they might be able to help.
