    Heck yes, I'm ready!

    Bringing a GTB Pinball Pool and Amazon Hunt for Free Play and for sale. Hope to play some new games I haven't seen, and it looks like a good selection of the popular titles will be there.

    Let's go!

    First timers: don't hesitate to introduce yourselves to a stranger. It's not as though you're at some snotty art show where they are going to say "Who the f*** are you?". We're all friends here.

    If there is a big line at a game and you're in front, offer the guy(s) behind you to play a multiple-player game. It's more fun to compete. (Where did I get that from?)

    Wear comfortable shoes, take some Ibuprophen, bring hand sanitizer, and, bring some cash. Because once you attend a show, you will probably catch The Disease. The hook will be in your mouth but you won't feel it as the hobby reels you in. You must have one. You must have more. How can I get one of these in my car? How does this thing work? I don't care, I'll figure it out. She'll understand.

    God help us.

    I will be breaking my pin-fest virginity next Friday!

    I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning.

    Anyone going to be handing out name tags so we can put our Pinside handle under our real names? Someone should make them up and charge a buck a piece or W/E to cover expenses.

    Not allowed on the fairgrounds but discretely outside in the flea is ok.

    #42 5 years ago

    I'm curious about that as well Blackbeard. I haven't brought beer yet, but it is a vacation day from work so I would obviously like to

    #43 5 years ago

    I was fine all day in flea market area but they won't let you in the door with a beer. If you do make it in, they take it away....er....that's what someone told me.....;
