  • Newcastle Pinfest: 24th & 25th September 2016

    We are happy to announce Pinfest 5 will be held on the weekend 24th and 25th September 2016 at Caves Beachside Hotel.

    We are planning some special attractions to mark our 5th consecutive year and look forward to seeing fellow AA members at the show.

    This year we will have up to 70 pinballs and if anyone is interested in providing a pin our head pinball wrangler Marco Rossiligno would love to hear from you.
    There are some nice incentives in providing a pin and Marco will let you know the details. You can contact Marco through our Newcastle Pinball association Facebook page.

    The weekend provided to us by CBH is the first weekend of the NSW school holidays. Caves Beach and the surrounding area is a great spot for a holiday so bring the kids and your fishing rods.

    As the competition calendar is filled with excellent events already we will not be conducting a comp this year.

    This years pinball raffle will be a Data East Time Machine. Tickets will only be available at the show.

    Pinfest original aim was to show the public that Pinball lives. Our goal remains the same today and whether it is a pinball wizard or a 5 year old on a milk crate all are welcome.

            I'll let Marco know later which 4 as we have a little bit of flexibility as in what mix to bring depending on how the EM / SS / DMD balance is looking on Marcos spreadsheet.

                Sounds great [MENTION=6132]hamo54[/MENTION]. On the comp side would you be open to allowing a round of the Magic Hands Super Selfie League running? Nothing for you guys to do at all - just allow [MENTION=6907]jagojp[/MENTION] to nominate some machines and then top score wins. John - would this work? Can you run a selfie comp on highest score alone seeing as finals wouldn't be possible. The only snag I can see is people hogging games to get a good score, but if people wait their turn all should be well. No pressure John, just thinking openly.

                  Maybe Alison. I've re-stencilled and painted the cab since last year and added a few shiny bits. Depends how the balance of game eras go

                    The biggest issue would be everybody getting on the machines during the weekend

                      True. Haven't been to one yet so don't know how hard it is to get on.

                        Re: Comp
                        Pinfest is a public event to promote the pinball hobby and raise some funds for a selection of local charities.
                        It is also a great social gathering for existing pinheads (old and new) and the families and friends of those involved.
                        Similar to last year we have chosen not to complicate the weekend with a competition, instead focusing on the social / fun side of the hobby.
                        For those keen, the Newcastle Monthly (Selfie) Open will be running that month (@ PnP and Supa Putt) and we encourage you to participate and visit 2 of Newcastle's largest sited locations and also sample PnP's great pizzas!!!
