    Very sad news indeed.
    But expected.
    Yegpin is an event I look forward to every year.
    We all appreciate all the effort you guys put in getting this years so ready for not.
    I think this long thread full of positive comments stands as a testament to what an amazing show you guys put on every year.
    Thanks to everyone the helps make this show happen.

    I’m sad! YEGPIN would have been next weekend. Are we all zoom conferencing and playing pins?

    Yeah, I've been slowly watching the date get closer and closer every time I look at the calendar on my phone. I guess my disappointment about it not happening shows just how much I enjoy and look forward to it.

    As part of the moving crew and tech, my body isn’t complaining, but otherwise it’s a downer. Our group put so much into prep etc. Hopefully not over reaching, but we did come out of it in a stable position and personally I’m in for next year. We received many generous sponsorship donations of parts etc so it would’ve been the best show yet. Our group is very dedicated and I’m 99% sure we will make it happen next year as long as regulations permit. Everyone play on and stay healthy!

    All parts donations are still on hand and we will credit the donors for next show

    Today is truly a sad day for me personally and all of the organizers, volunteers, vendors, donors and sponsors of YEGPIN. Reality has finally sunk in and all of the work that we put in to put on a world class pinball and arcade show was lost this year. Today we should be getting ready to open the doors and showing the public how great our hobby is. We should be promoting how awesome and fun competition pinball is, we should be seeing old friends, and making connections with new ones and most of all we should be celebrating how great it is to be a part of the hobby.

    I am totally gutted for our entire community and this is going to sting for a long time. Just wanted you all to know that I am right there with you all and hope that the world is in a much different place come this time next year. Thanks to everyone who was patient with all of the refunds, we have always tried to do things the right way and hopefully that was the experience for you. I can tell you that we do have plans for next year, but nothing will be formally announced until we are 100% sure the world is ready for these kind of events again.

    Take care everyone, stay safe, and lets all hope we can all put this behind us.

    #217 10 months ago

    Better yet we all finished in a tie with the best player in the world Raymond Davidson. Personally thou I would have rather been beat.

    Man I miss Yegpin. Such a killer show, tournament and in Canada too.

    Now I’m sad.

    Ya.. i watched him systematically destroy them pins at the finals in 2019.. I'm there for what's on the other side of the fence (hundreds of pins on free play and hanging with the community!) (&Fytr's lounge!) But the level of competition would of been crazy this year as I see you guys are the Canadian championship host now! Im sure more high ranked players were planning on attending! Can't wait for next year man!
