    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

      Maybe. Last year was ACE.
      But... That's the weekend before Bayside Nunawading meet.
      Lot's going on around then, will have to think about it.

      Don't forget, battle pinny will need to be at Nunawading meet too.

      Bayside meat is always the last Thursday of each month. Last September Friday, before Grand Final, is a public holiday, so the Sandbelt hotel have a band playing Thursday night (usually Kiss Destroyer) which means the venue is not available for comp but has started the popular Nunawading meet, the biggest for Bayside of the year!

      If you are bringing a FT there's no need to bring mine so I'll tart up another pin to get more snot played out of it

      I actually prefer a few games doubled up...especially if they are popolar ones. I know its a bit of skewed logic but it helps out with people lining up to have a game. Every year we could do with at least 4 Addams Family games.

      Just in time for AMD to bring along Iron Maiden, I see that they are listed as sponsors/supporters on the poster.

      Good point. Didn't think of that. I was more focused on maximum variety in my mind

      So @ocyen we'll have a fishing tournament

      From past experience the 1st and foremost thing is preparation and reliability before glam titles and fitting led's. No good looking spanky if the game shits itself in the 1st 2 hours on Saturday.

      @1.21 Gigawatts I was actually thinking FP would be a starter this year as its been pretty reliable. (touch wood)
