    Suzanne & I would like to thank everyone that attended Vancouver FlipOut Pinball Expo 2017! We especially want to thank Dave Stewart & Germain Mariolle for once again running a world class tournament at our little Canadian shindig. We couldn’t host an event like this without out the help of key volunteers like Warren McCulloch, Dale Garbutt, Lyle Mitchell, Gunner Floyd, Rob Moller, Jeff Sawyer, Chris Barwig, Joanne McGurk, Kyle Seller, Jordy Vaughan, Tina West, Raymond Chau, Doug & Shawna Teale. Our gratitude knows no bounds.

    Our VIP guests were outstanding! Jack Danger, Dirty Donny, David Thiel, Mike Kalinowski, Butch Peel, Jack Guarnieri, Mary Mac, Josh Brown & Chance Johnson you are the best! Also, how can we forget Jared Guynes for making the last-minute trip out. Your presence, humor & freestyle rapping made the event even more enjoyable.

    Every year VFO gets bigger & better. 2018 is no exception. We’ll be moving to The Roundhouse Exhibition Hall in Yaletown (Davie & Pacific). I’d like to invite you all to mark your calendars September 7th – 9th. We have some very exciting things happening next year including more pinball machines, arcade games, vendors, speakers, food trucks, beer tents, VIP guests….and some ultra-cool surprises we’ll be announcing leading up to the show.

    Again, thanks to everyone that made VFO such a success. See you in 2018!

    #161 2 years ago

    Thanks guys for throwing one hell of a pinball party last weekend!

    I had a blast and enjoyed losing in the tournaments , playing all the great games in the freeplay room, and mingling with the special guests.

    I thought the games in general were playing better this year also and was impressed to find guys still fixing games at 3am on Sunday morning.

    Congrats on a great show - looking forward to next year!

    We've got a few videos from the Speaker sessions released now, the most recent being Jack Guarnieri talking about his journey with Jersey Jack Pinball. We still have David Thiel, and Butch Peel's sessions coming in the next week or so, as well as our overall trip to the show where we'll check out the Freeplay room, a little bit of the tournaments, and some of the shenanigans we got into during the show.

    #163 2 years ago

    Another one of the session videos we released a couple weeks ago, but forgot to post here was Mike Kalinowski from Homepin. A very interesting story of how he got started in pinball, some of the challenges he faced getting Homepin manufacturing setup in China, and a look at the Thunderbirds Pinball machine they've been working on.

    #164 2 years ago

    Here is Butch Peel's speaker session from the show. Butch is one of the key folks at Jersey Jack Pinball, responsible for technical and documentation support for all of their games.

    #165 2 years ago

    We're happy to announce 2018 dates Sep 7-9 @ The Roundhouse in Yaletown, Vancouver, BC. More space, more pins, more arcades, more vendors, more speakers .....more of everything! Only 317 days until Vancouver FlipOut!

    #169 2 years ago

    There's a few hotels close by. However, we're negotiating an Expo rate as we speak. Will post soon.

    We have just released our video of the Vancouver FlipOut 2017 Pinball Expo. Enjoy!

    #173 2 years ago

    If you've been playing pinball or arcade games anytime in the past 35 years or so, you've probably come across some of David Thiel's work. He's been a part of Gottlieb's team in the early 80s and was responsible for the music and sounds in games such as Reactor, Q-Bert, and has most recently been involved in the pinball industry on titles like JJP Dialed In, The Hobbit, Heighway Pinball's Alien, JJP's upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean, and more! This is our final Vancouver FlipOut 2017 Speaker session video. Enjoy!
