    The trail is open and the tunnel is not too far from Downtown. My kids love the tunnel when we go that way. It is worth the ride. There are plenty of parking areas in downtown near the trail and just south. Look for Indian Rock Elementary on the map. You can park there and get the trail. The tunnel is 5 or less miles from the Elementary school.

    I got imdn pro or bm66 on the brain. I prefer nib, just not the new nib standard pricing. One owner huo is my second choice. Cash in hand for the right deal, dragging my feet and waiting it out til York otherwise.

    @jodyg , @too-many-pins , @skidave ,

    I appreciate the replies. I just checked sunset time for 12 October - it's at 6:30 PM, so I don't think my plan for an after-show ride can realistically happen. I do have lights for my commute here in DC area, but the point would be to see the scenery; not just log miles. Too bad, rather than just doubling back, I was thinking of riding one way, locking the bike, taking an uber back to the beginning and then driving to pick up the bike. Just as well, doesn't it always rain for the York show anyway?

    Show is getting closer & I actually think I am going to finally have a chance to set up this year after 5 or 6 years of trying. I keep waiting for some type of family BS to happen again but so far everything seems 'good to go' as far as me finally making a York Show! Now all I need to do is figure out the load and get some space reserved.

    #256 2 years ago

    Only one month to go. We are getting close to being sold out of Vendor Spots.

    Still some indoor and outdoor flea market spots left. A few indoor spots remain available for the "bring 5 games for free play and get a free indoor flea market spot" deal.
    Those that bring a game for free play and let the game there till 4 on Saturday will be entered in a special drawing.

    Online game registration is up and running at: http://www.theyorkshow.com/game-registration.html

    #257 2 years ago

    I’m looking forward to going this year. I missed a bunch other than one year 3 years ago. Taking some HS friends to help spread disease. I mean hobby.

    Rich,

    Glad to hear you are getting vendor spaces full! I know you, your family and your staff work hard every year to make York a great show. Looks like 2018 could be my year to FINALLY set up! Keep up the great work & I'll be in touch soon!

    Rich, should I register my BSD that I’m bringing for Rob at Lermod’s booth? He’s tossing some mods in, but it will be open for free play.

    #260 2 years ago

    Are you planning on using it for free admission to the show?

    #261 2 years ago
    Quoted from rmarket:

    Not particularly, I don’t mind paying the admission fee. Rob asked for a game, I volunteered mine. Games in his booth customarily get a good amount of play from patrons, even if it’s not the typical “free play area”.

    Certainly didn’t want to miss out on a contest or drawing though.

    #262 2 years ago

    OK, go ahead and register it. http://www.theyorkshow.com/game-registration.html You still would get the free admission for bringing it.

    #263 2 years ago

    This is my favorite show, and I'm planning to bring a machine for the first time this year, a "300". Looking forward to it, even the drive from Michigan!

    I do have an EZ-Pass, which makes things cheaper and faster. If anyone doesn't have one, I highly recommend it if you use the turnpike with any frequency. PA tolls make OH tolls look like a bargain!

    Michigan has you all beat on the roads. One major candidate for governor this year has pretty much based the campaign on fixing our roads here. The potholes this year were the worst in my 56-year memory, probably worse than the lunar surface.

    Here we go again - Allentown the talk was all about hotels now for York the topic seems to be highways? How about talking about pinball on a pinball forum for a change?

    Usually same vendors....

    #274 2 years ago

    Some new ones this year in addition to the regular vendors. The list grows every day up to the show. I don't post the list as it is only current for a brief moment in time.

    Quoted from ibuypinballs:

    Pete,

    So far things are looking good for the first time in 5 or 6 years. It has been kind of crazy how my life has played out right around the York Show ever year since Rich took over the show. One year both my mother & Father in law died (3 weeks apart) one just before York and one just after, the following year my son in NJ closed on his house the weekend of York and I was his truck & trailer for that move, two years ago I was involved with helping my sister move from NJ to Central PA the weekend of York and last year she still had stuff in my trailer we were moving from a storage unit in NJ to her new place. This year I don't think anyone in the family can throw me a "curve ball" but I never know with my crazy family. This week I came close to helping my sister in law move a truck & trailer load of furniture from NJ to their new house in Florida but thankfully at the last minute her son was able to help her so I was off the hook with that one! (At least that wouldn't have been on the same weekend as the show!)

    So at this point - as long as I am still alive - it looks like a space or two at York might actually happen! Thanks for asking!

    Now the next step is to get my trailer empty from working in at my son's place over the Summer then I can decide what to load and how much space I'll need. Rich - if you happen to read this I'll be contacting you sometime in the next week or two checking in to see what spaces you still have. At this point I don't know if I'll need electric (or not) so I want to hold off until I figure out my load before renting spaces.

    How well are the roads maintained between your place and York? How "over the top" are the tolls - especially pulling a trailer?

    Would anyone have a back to the future pinball they would like to bring to the show and sell me and or trade also I'm looking for a high speed project.

    I think there was a high speed project linked in the "project pin" thread a day or two ago. It was in Lancaster, PA. I happen to have the link because I mailed it to a friend who lives in that area, but it seems to be deleted now... lancaster.craigslist.org link Not surprised it's gone as I think the price was in the $350 range (but the playfield was ver rough).

    We are only about 45 minutes from the fairground and I typically just take back roads (Rt-74 most of the way) or I-81 to 587 to I-83 down to the fairground. No tolls on either route but Turnpike can get pretty crazy towing a trailer. A few year back when I had my Class 8 motorhome and big trailers tolls from here to either end of the turnpike were around $100 and if I traveled the full length it was like $175. Rig was 67' long overall so it wasn't little but GVW was only about 1/2 of a semi yet I paid more than a semi because of number of axles? I wasn't interested in buying the highway just using it!

    Sadly a few years back DOT decided to start "stealing" funds from turnpike to fund other highway projects. Ever since turnpike tolls have gotten pretty crazy so typically I avoid the turnpike as much as possible. If I am heading east I head up to Harrisburg then take Rt 287 to Rt 30 almost all the way to Phila. When heading west I normally head south on I-81 to Maryland then west on I-70 & I-68. (That is about 60 miles longer but it is a nice scenic ride without tolls). Years ago I would travel the turnpike almost weekly now if I am on it for a few miles twice a year it is unusual.

    As far as road conditions any place that has cold weather will always have bad roads because of the freeze thaw cycles. I just try to avoid as many holes as possible. What I didn't understand is this Spring when I went down to El Paso Texas to pick up a load of machines & parts roads in OK & TX were worse than roads in PA and they don't have the issue with the freeze thaw cycles?

    I picked that pin up, was on it right away, playfield was rough, backglass was printed on paper, only good thing was board set was clean and a decent cabinet, good candidate for the hardtop coming out soon

    You are as bad as me! I know you have been out of space for two years and yet you keep buying! You are just as sick as most of the rest of us! See ya at York.

    But most of their roads are better than New York's. This is when I really notice it; entering NY from CT, especially the local roads.

    The show is only three weeks away. At this point we only have two vendor spots available. There are still some indoor flea market spots available. The online game registration is available at: http://www.theyorkshow.com/game-registration.html Everyone that brings a game for free play, keeps the game on the floor till 4 on Saturday and keeps the owner card on the game will be entered into the drawing. There will be 5 prizes of $100 each.

    And now the part everyone is truly interested in Hotel information
    The hotel has added a few more rooms to the block but when these sell out, they won't add any more rooms.

    #287 2 years ago

    Everyone started to get excited about the show? Less than 3 weeks to go and no family drama this year so I still think I'll finally be able to set up. I have not reserved space yet because I don't want to "jinx things" but things are still looking good for me to FINALLY make a York Show. Hopefully I'll have some kind of list of machines I am bringing one day next week. For now I know I have 4 project machines that could come along if anyone is interested. Stargate, Shaq Ataq, World Cup Soccer & a Whirlwind are on my "short list" of machines that might be headed to the show. Beyond those I don't know what else might make the load yet. We also have a Tapper Cocktail Arcade I could bring tf there is any interest in that.

    Wonder if that was one of the ones that sold at that quarryville auction a few weeks back. Probably realized the game was too far gone to try and bring back. It sold for $400 not including tax and auction fees and such so if it was the same one, the auction buyer lost a little money on it. Its #16 on this list https://paauctioncenter.hibid.com/catalog/141659/9-8-2018-pinball--arcade-and-video-machine-collection/?

    I don't think it's the same one. When I commented on the "very rough" playfield, I was referring to paint loss - the one in the auction photos looks to me like the best part may have been the playfield.

    Whirlwind might now be sold. Typically I don't sell machines I was planning on bringing to a show but I was contacted by a previous customer that had voiced an interest in it over a year ago. So I feel it is only fair to give him first shot at buying it if he wants in. I'll update as soon as I know something for sure. If Whirlwind doesn't make it to the show that will give me room for another title. I'll post that title as soon as I figure out what else we want to sell this Fall.

    #293 2 years ago

    The responses are done manually and I generally wait till have several and do them in bulk (usually I get to them every couple of days). Especially this close to the show when my time is at a premium. Don't be concerned if you don't get a response right away.

    Only 10 days till the start of the show! At this point there is only one vendor spot available. Indoor and outdoor flea market spots are still available. There is one indoor flea market spot available under the "bring 5 or more games" deal. There is also still space for more games in the free play area.
    There will be a raffle for those that bring games for the free play area. Everyone that has brought a game for both days of the show and the game on the floor at 4 PM Saturday will be entered into the drawing. Five prizes of $100 each will be drawn. To be eligible, your game must have a for sale / not for sale card on it with your name listed. The prizes will go to five different individuals.

    Rich,

    We are still trying to figure out "our load" so I'll be in touch shortly. Thankfully it doesn't look like anything family related will keep me from the show this year but sadly Wayne has an In-Law thing on his wives side that will put him out of town for the weekend so it will just be me at the show. I would love to "commit" to 5 games for freeplay in exchange for the flea market space but I don't know if we will have 5 machines ready for freeplay at this point. I should have a couple I'll be able to add to freeplay if all goes as planned.

    Wayne just got back from vacation last night so later this week we will be back to getting stuff ready for the show. Glad to hear you keep filling spaces! Keep up the great work!
