Thanks. The backglass is a fitting Avatar for you.
My brother and I got to meet you at the Florida Pinball show in November.
We get to go to IAAPA every year for our business trip and the Florida pinball show fits right in.
Happy 4th everyone.
Can't wait to see some great grilling photos later.

Welcome to the Claytor Arcade:

Honestly, these days I mostly party with one person:

...but it's nice to be invited to the largest pin-gathering around. Especially now that he's getting to the point of partying on his own. *tear*

Great idea, BlondeTall!

Happy United Statesian Day, everyone.

What happened to your demoman handles ryan?

My Twin Win was my uncle's machine 30+ years ago, hidden in his basement. Then he wanted it gone to make more room, so my dad brought it home because the chick "looks like me." It sat in my parents basement since 1990. Once I got my basement set up in my new (to me) house, it came home with me and got a proper shop job. It never fails to fire right up and play 100% every time.

Quoted from Arcade:

My brother and I got to meet you at the Florida Pinball show in November.

Yup, and I kicked your butt on AMH. You are part of the elusive club of people who have seen me in person. lol I think there's about 10 members now.

I got tons of practice on AMH at TPF so maybe a rematch if you get to make it over to Florida again this year.

#186 4 years ago

Played a little Jarts last night. Not normal Jarts. Special Jarts. The rings are about 40' apart.

IMG_1173.JPG

First ring is 1 point, second is 2 and third is 3. Hit the pop can and it's an extra 5. But if you hit the pop can, you need to slam a beer. And yes, it happens.

Some guys need sippy cups though.

Nothing fancy to eat. Just burgers, chips and beer.

Woo, I'm almost set up to join in, having just landed #4 as a real shock for my young fem-pinheads...

If you'll note the well-weathered sticker on my beloved Aerobarge's bug visor, you might say this is the ultimate "meta" pin

The wife and I are due a few rounds and brews too, to celebrate the successful improvisation of a solution to a logistical nightmare: how to get this thing down a set of narrow interior-only basement steps? Managed to do it without killing the machine or ourselves, or each other. Like, in both the literal AND figurative sense...!

Who knew that a pin obsession would become the ultimate team building exercise?

Now to get 'er cleaned and ready so the Dalek can scare-surprise my kids when they get home...

#188 4 years ago

I need to buy a grill. It's not July 4 without fresh seared meat! Getting the house ready for my 10-year-old nephew to visit for a few weeks. He lives out in the country, and I don't think he's ever played a pin.

ST. CHARLES, IL - June 30, 2015 - Deadheads can still be part of Grateful Dead history this week when the iconic band’s “Fare Thee Well” concert at Soldier Field is simulcast live at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles. The venue was awarded a nearly exclusive simulcast of the tour and will show it Friday, July 3 at 7 pm on its 40-ft screen. Tickets to the all ages show are $20 and seating is general admission.

The live shows, set for July 3-5 in Chicago -- will mark the 50th anniversary of the band's fabled concerts at Soldier Field. Even more important, they'll be the final Dead shows ever, according to guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh and percussionists Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. The late Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead’s legendary leader, performed what would be his final show in July of 1995 at Soldier Field.

Do you move the pins, when someone wants to chuck Darts? Lobbing Darts over the Pins looks challenging.

The dartboard was there before I got the first machine. We'll play darts again when we are tired of pinball.
