    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Boy I hope I can make it this year. Last year I was hoping there would be a ACNC there and now it is a reality. Bk3 and Octoberfest is icing on the cake. Bk3 premium?

    BK pro

    So excited for this and can’t wait to hit my favourite Edmonton sushi place sumo sumo for dinner!!! So stoked that it’s basically in the parking lot.

    #203 7 months ago

    Sorry double post

    #204 7 months ago

    Flying up from California tomorrow morning... very much looking forward to the show and the tournament.

    It’s already hitting 90 degrees here, so the change in weather will be welcome — I’m not ready for summer just yet.

    Question for locals: What’s the best pinball joint in Edmonton to hit up tomorrow night?

    #205 7 months ago

    We are pretty sparse. With Bill bringing his best from Luckys there might still be a few there.

    #206 7 months ago
    Quoted from bcrage88:

    Okay that is really it, and please let focus on what is really here at the show and not the negativity of what isn't, this is going to be one hell of a super show this year we have pulled out all of the stops so come on out and support the pinball and arcade scene in our great city!!!!

    Don't see how anyone could be negative, going to be a great line up. Big thanks to Tommy and everyone else who is bringing a machine. Couldn't make it last year, looking forward to Friday!

    Quoted from Jerol:

    Beercade on Whyte Ave has a solid lineup. Lots of arcades. Easy to get to from Sherwood Park

    #208 7 months ago

    I hit up beercade every time we go to Edmonton. I’d recommend it too!

    #209 7 months ago

    For the most part people are great but there is always that one that person that will be a keyboard warrior and say well you don’t have this machine or where is JJWW, which is why I like to use the preemptive disclaimer to remind everyone just how lucky we are to have a distributor that supports the Alberta community like he does!

    It's pinball.

    It's going to be great, Derek.

    Thanks for all the hard work setting this up -- I suspect it was a monumental labor of love.

    #211 7 months ago

    Are you in the juice again Jay

    Quoted from bcrage88:

    So I have a big announcement for some surprise machines for the event, yes you didn't think there wasn't going to be one did you. Without further ado we are proud to announce that YEGPIN will be the first pinball show in Canada to show off:
    Black Knight: Swords of Rage
    To top this off one of our huge supporter donors from YEGPIN has allowed Tommy from Nitro to show off his:
    Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle
    That is right Nitro Pinball has done it once again and literally moved heaven and earth to bring these titles to our show.
    So please thank Tommy Floyd for all his does for pinball in Alberta and please visit his booth when you arrive at the show.
    Back to work!!!!

    annnnd don't forget to thank pinhead306 as well.. I know he hopped in a u-haul truck this morning and drove over seven hours to be in Montana tomorrow morning when the depot opens..then he has to make a 15+hour drive to Edmonton to deliver Tommy the games @ yegpin...this is a favour of biblical proportions and if he actually pulls it off and delivers the pins...I'll be so fookin stoked and already impressed with his passion for the hobby..cheers brotha Jamie and see you soooon. First beer is one me! (Or three!)

    Thanks guys! Couldn’t have done this without Tommy calling in some favours to have them shipped out and Derek and all the great peeps at Diehard that put this great event on for all of us! See you guys tomorrow night.

    *edit* oh and maybe most importantly, thanks to my understanding/supportive wife that puts up with my crazy obsession... errr I mean passion. I’m doing this while she is driving with our daughters to the event tomorrow.

    I think this is what YEGPIN is about we have a ton of people who go out of their way to make this happen to deliver such a special and unique show for the public. There are many people who just care and want to help in anyway they can to make that happen. Jamie has done a wonderful thing and will forever be in YEGPIN tales and stories for years to come in his journey to bring the Bkack Knight to us. Thanks man you are one awesome dude!!! You will be well taken care of when you arrive!!!

Can’t wait to give you a big hug and an ice cold beer! BTW - You’ll be the first to play these bad boys! Thank you from the bottom of my Pinhead heart!

    No worries Tommy. I’m just happy to finally be able to contribute something to this amazing event finally after attending the other years. Thanks again to Diehard pinball league for all the hard work you guys do for this event to happen every year!
