    Phew. Great first day. Met a ton of people from all over. Great new venue. Well run and organized. I posted some more pics of people in front of my sign at this thread https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/what-kind-of-pinside-achievement-can-i-get-for-this

    Also pinball news is posting frequent live updates with photos

    Day 2 is over and I’ll be flying home in the morning. Some quick notes from my phone :

    Venue was bigger and PACKED. I loved seeing the mix of people. Tons of young people.

    I met a bunch of Pinsiders. Shout outs to everyone and all those who got badges from me. I had a ton of fun with the whole ‘Meet Frolic’ thing. It was just good-natured fun. And if we can’t have fun with pinball then why are we here ?

    I went yesterday and spent 8+ hours there..what a nice venue. So cool to play so many different games from the 50’s- new..big thanks to Tommy for putting on another great show, and all the volunteers-techs for fixing the odd game. Was cool to briefly meet frolic.. thanks for the badge!! Everyone was pretty friendly, except the 1 idiot w headphones violently shaking the TNA game..other then that, what a blast!!

    Nice! Thank you for the update.

    It sounds like it went to someone who was there who could geek out in person, which is cool!

    #176 1 year ago

    Was an amazing show, the best flipout by far.

    Everything was perfect imo I honestly can’t think of anything negative.

    The parking was plentiful and lots of transit too.

    Food trucks and many restaurants close by too.

    Great to see nitro brought all the latest releases.

    Big Txs to all involved who donated time and games.

    No there wasn’t.
    There was a TV crew there at the end. CTV I think.
    Might see some of the finals.

    #180 1 year ago

    Amazing job by Nitro in putting on another world class show, the venue was amazing and a huge improvement from recent shows. Looking forward to coming to this event next year as I am sure it will only get better.

    #181 1 year ago

    Awesome job by the Nitro crew! Came down on Saturday night and had a blast and will definitely be coming back next year!

    Another incredible pinball weekend thanks to Tommy and Suzanne and everyone who helped out!

    Here are a few pics I took...

    Still a lot of smoke in the mountain valleys from this summer's 'largest fire year ever' in BC.

    Made it!

    Panorama from the back patio beer gardens (who's that talking in front of the doors?)

    Antoinette shows off her amazing singing voice at the VIP party.

    Folks of all ages (and heights) enjoying the free-play games.

    Some interesting art in the parks nearby.
