    PINFEST NEEDS PINBALLS!

    Have you ever asked yourself this question when attending Pinfest; where do all the games come from?

    They are donated by enthusiast who every year spend time and effort to transport their games to the event for people of all ages to enjoy. Without their support this event would not be possible. However, this scenario cannot be maintained indefinitely without new contributors coming into the group.

    With this in mind, and for the future continuation of the event, we would like to put a call out to people willing to donate a pinball for the event Ė reminding everyone that it's for a good cause, as money raised will go to a local charity. Not to mention it makes a lot of people very happy every year :-)

    If you are interested in being a contributor to the event (or know someone who is...please pass this post on)
    Flick an e-mail to Marco profondorosso66@hotmail.com and he will provide further information.
    Or send a message via our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NewcastlePinballAssociation/

    Cheers

      Yes the last thing you want to be known for is bringing a Williams Weber pinball.
      Some people will just never let you forget.

      There hasn't been a FT for a couple of years.... I bloody hope someone brings one... at least. If someone would be so kind as to bring a WCS as well that would be greatly appreciated

      According to the latest games list I've seen there will be a FT there and I don't have to bring mine so I'll bring something else instead of FT.

      Ummm, Steve. That's not my Medusa mate, wish it was. the PF looks in great - ish shape.

      As far as Pinfest goes, complicated rule set games like Medusa, Embyron and Centaur for e.g would generally be a hard task except for the lovers of that era. Having said that, lovers of those 80's Bally games would like to play the big 3 of the era which they remember.


      Big 3 imo for turnover $$$ wise back in their day would be Kiss, Playboy , EBD.


      All those 3 have been present at one Pinfest or another.


      Just a thought, I know a few people that like Black Pyramid - Hell , 'I've had 2 of them here. Know anyone that could bring one to Pinfest '18?

      As Pinfest moves closer and things start coming together bit by bit this is how the balance is of last week but this may swing a bit between the different eras but hopefully there is something to suit everyone. No there won't be a specific game list as you all know pinball is pinball and sometimes a particular title can have a dummy spit at the last minute.

      Contributors have a great time and itís a rewarding experience to be involved. Donít be intimidated or afraid to volunteer your time and a machine or two. If you have a few little problems here and there with the machine you will get plenty of good advice and hands-on assistance from any number of the other participants.

      @DivMon . Hey Dave. Will that BOP continue its unbroken run of the only pin to have been at every Pinfest since day1 ?

      Tick , tick , tick.

      the Pinfest clock says its time for all the games donors to tidyup those loose ends and replace that last globe so you have plenty of time to test run your games.

      Believe me there is no game bullet-proof but if a switch needs attending, rubbers are looking sus , cap's are oozing blue crap now is the time to get on it post haste.

      Having said that I betcha one of my games dies 1st - Murphys Law
