    Hey everyone! We're getting closer to YEGPIN and have about 3/4 of the volunteer spots filled up so far but we could always use more help. If you're interested into free entry into the show, we're short on help for machine movers (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday night, Monday), scorekeeping, registration desk, concession area (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

    If you are looking just to do one shift we offer part time positions as well inquire within

    Sign-up is here: http://www.yegpin.com/volunteer/

    Heads up that we will be closing down the payment part of our site for YEGPIN on April 30, 2018. This will be the last chance to get your pre-purchase discounts on posters and shirts. Will also be the last opportunity to pre-order you weekend pass and pickup through our VIP line.

    Pre-Buy discounts end on the 30th, show prices are as follows:
    Brian Holderman designed locally screened YEGPIN Show Shirts - $40
    Brian Holderman designed locally screened YEGPIN Zip Up Show Hoodies - $75 (no pre-sale, VERY limited quantities and sizes)
    Brian Holderman designed and hand screened YEGPIN Show Posters - $40
    Weekend Passes (sold Friday only) - $60

    Also, we will have many more silent auction items available for sale (including, back by popular demand, some limited edition Brian Holderman prints) you will just have to show up to find out what items there are for each day of the event. I have to say this years clothing quality and designs are off the chart we really appreciate all of the support from our supplier Print and Platen, they did a bang up job and really 1up'ed the quality on us. Posters are all tubed this year so they will not get damaged in shipping or in person.

    Each purchase of this merch goes a LONG way and supports this not-for-profit event. We really appreciate all of the pre-orders to date and those who plan to support at the event.

    Here is a sneak peak of one of our pinball league models with the hoodie. Looks sharp eh!

    7 days too long. I’m calling in sick next week.

    We are all working hard to put on a world class event for everyone. Seriously, some of us have new grey hairs!
    But all the work is worth it and we can't wait to see you all there. It's going to an amazing way to kick off the summer.

    We kick things off with two new tournaments this year. The Retroactive Arcade : Knockout Cancer Pinball Tournament and Pinforge.com Ms PacMan tournaments. Followed by the legendary Nitro Pinball : Western Canadian Pinball Championship and Print and Platen Classics Pinball Tournament. We also run a non-IFPA tournament just for the kids. Wizards comics and collectables will be hosting the The Little Flippin Pinball Tournament all weekend.

    Some quick updates. Alberta Cancer Foundation will be the beneficiary of all funds from the Retroactive Arcade : Knockout Cancer Pinball Tournament. We hope you all show up to this fun, fast playing 3 strike (2nd,3rd,4th get strikes!) tournament aimed at warming you up for the main tournaments. Focus on fun! 1st, 2nd, and 3rd as well as oldest and youngest players will get a limited edition Brian Holderman poster! All ages are welcome and encouraged to enter!

    ---------------

    Want to get involved? It's not too late.

    Day and weekend passes for sale day of the show.
    Weekend passes online until the 30th.

    Volunteers? We still need help! You get some major perks and the team just put aside some prizes for VIPs and Volunteers.
    http://www.yegpin.com/volunteer/

    Want to donate a machine? It's not to late.
    We can't take many more machines, but if you have something special, please reach out. I mean if you are hording a Big Bang Bar in Edmonton you owe it to us all to click the link below.

    All online sales for the event has officially ended. The fun has already started and we will be transporting machines tomorrow and doing the full setup of the show on Thursday. Thanks to all of those that pre-purchased tickets for the event can’t tell you how much it helps us to offset the expenses we have to put on the show. It looks like we will have around 110 pins and 50 arcades to make this the biggest show ever. See you all there!!!!

    #220 1 year ago

    50 arcades!!!! wow... that’s quite the increase from last year

    #221 1 year ago

    Here we go. Hope everyone is pumped!

    • Check the schedule http://www.yegpin.com/schedule-of-events/ It has everything you need to know about the event including cut off times for tournaments and re-entry times. These are all tentative, but we want to stick to them. We have adjusted some things from last year to align more with the INDISC - Museum of Pinball Tournament format. If you see something wrong please PM this account or hit up j@yegpin.com or d@yegpin.com
    • Real coffee, real espresso. By popular demand. We have someone coming in just to do specialty coffee. No instant coffee or keurig at this expo.
    • The menu, Mike has really stepped up to offer something unique for food.Keep that a secret for now.
    • We will be streaming the event on twitch and some of the qualifying on Sat/Sun.
    • Please do not freaking Drink and Drive. We hope you have a good time! Please make plans to cab, car-pool, or stay in one of the great hotels we are working with. Plan now, come to party, and take care of each other. We want everyone to make it to Flipout and YEGPIN 2019
    • Derek was on Pinball Profile. Have a listen!

    Joker Poker we are giving away to one lucky donor. Holy hell this thing looks amazing.
