  10. Just jumped on AA now and seen this. Boy did this topic go skew wiff and off the rails ! Well said Grunta ! Look forward to having the meet in the future.(plus side is I am dragging even more machines out of storage and getting them done in lockdown) Till then post your Covid opinions elsewhere !
  11. Well really sorry but there is no way thirty people can be playing and enjoying at a pinball meet next weekend. I have put a mountain of work into it, and will post another date in the near future. :(
  12. it has crossed my mind. but life goes on. A pinball party is a pretty good way of ending lockdown on the flipside.
  13. This meet has been on simmer for a little while now but… Finally it is June that means the meet is now next month. It is open season ( people who have hosted before have registered) so far we have a dozen or so but now I would like to open it up to anyone who has an interest in old arcadia and would like to attend. Attendees will be capped at 30 people. I will edit the fist post with the attendee list as it develops in the up coming days. Heres a games list of what we will be playing on. Each machine will have its own quest or challenge to complete for points. You will be busy playing through them all. However if you just want to play and chat you don’t have to compete, it’s a social night for fun not sheep stations. Penny Arcade… Over the mountain Big strike Flip Ball Penny Ship Skillo Lady Luck Par five golf Zipper Skill Pop up Sweet Sally Go go girl Whiz ball 1930s Pinballs… Contact (first electric) Airway Harvest moon Chicago express EM Pinballs… Gypsy Queen Around the world Casino Sound stage Jumping Jack Royal Flush Captain Fantastic Solid State… Mata Hari Flash Gordon 9 Ball Dot Matrix Adams family Q ball wizard Dr Who Indiana Jones Fish tales Gilligans Island Revenge from Mars Other… Galaga Space Monster (Taito rifle) Bonanza rifle Ten Stike bowler
