  • Illawarra Steelers meet - 31st March 2018

    Well, I swore it would never happen again but here we go.

    Now my health (both physical and mental) is the best it has ever been, lets do this!

    The Illawarra Steelers family is inviting fellow Aussie Arcade members to the first official meet here for 3 years.

    We are located in the Northern suburbs of Wollongong NSW which is around 30 minutes South of the Sutherland Shire.

    Start time 4pm and will run to 11pm.

    There will be around 30 games available all electro mechanical but with some luck there will be 2 or 3 solid state pins here by the time.

    There will be a comp but I'm asking for somebody to put up their hand to run and organise it. The pinball comp (for something totally different) will be Gottlieb's Score-Board from 1956 this was the fourth 4 player pinball made. The game was something I had been chasing since 1977 and will be stoked for people to be able to play this holy grail game. She has been fully restored and rebuilt.

    There will be prizes for players placed 1 to 4 in the final of the comp. Will announce these in the next few weeks.

    I am also asking for help with somebody to collect the money for the pizzas.

    Just a few rules and sorry if these sound a bit harsh:

    *Strickly no smoking in the gamesroom. All cigarette butts are to be picked up (not for me to pick up off the road next morning).
    *I have no problems at all with people placing drinks on the games
    *The meet will finish at 11pm for the sake of my neighbours.
    *No low post count members - yep I know this may sound tough
    *Please don't trample my garden!
    *The toughest one (cranky old 53 year old ) is i reserve the right who gets to come to this function.
    *BYO - we will supply chips, nuts, munchies, soft drink, botfled water etc.

    Games that will be available:

    Gottlieb Surf Side 1967 - only one in australia to play
    Gottlieb King Pin 1973
    Gottlieb Abra ca Dabra 1975
    Gottlieb Spin Out 1975
