    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 – 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

      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
      Good idea.. i turned Roller Disco on last night and its decided not to work.. power supply shat itsself, no 5 volts, now i need to find time to fix that!! I'll be definitely bringing a few spare boards etc and some tools in case they're needed!

      All along i've been thinking there's a good chance the game won't be running when i bring it home

      When I last turned on my game, no sound.

      We are happy to support Pinfest again this year and will be bringing 2-3 of our Arcooda Pinball Ultra cabinets. FarSight is working on balance software updates with animated backglass upgrades so that Pinball Arcade should be functioning strongly.

      We will also show a prototype of the Touch Wizard pinball edition which we were hoping to run custom Pinball Arcade software. We had both the horizontal and vertical cabinet in design/proto version but will stop the development until we can solve the software licensing.

      If you would like to get the inside information on the latest pinball development news, as well as current arcade game development news from inside the biggest gaming companies in the world, together with top secret trends, listen to our seminar 12.30 to 1.30pm on Saturday 22nd September.

      Look forward to seeing everyone.

      I like to get a small engraved plate for each machine I bring to Pinfest. I get it engraved with "I survived Pinfest 2017/2018/etc". They only cost $5 each and can do cheaper for larger quantities. They're adhesive so I stick them onto the lockdown bar. Perhaps a gift idea for contributors?

      I get these ones - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Engraved...4pr65TIHgWmuWg

      I understand what you are saying but it was decided that contributors get a T-Shirt and that is enough.

      And a poster, handful of bumper stickers....maybe next year we organise that little plaque.
      Not sure how many would actually like to put that on their games though...
