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

    Newcastle Pinfest: 24th & 25th September 2016

    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!!!

    Will see what I have available at the time Marco. At this stage see what the numbers are like but I will commit 1 for now.
    And most likely sell it too.

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.

    I like the idea as it would be a silly social comp to run during a big open event. However as others have noted, it's just not possible to get on the machines. The amazing thing, as well as the curse, is that the public flock to this thing and if you want to get on a game you have to usually wait 4 people deep.

    On that topic... Any chance of a lock in? Maybe do a lock in for AA members who pony up an extra $10 each or something?

    I would agree to that on one condition - that it would be restricted to a select number of people - and a small number at that - and it would be more than $10....having said that its not about the money.
    Saturday night is reserved for the people that put in the effort to get the show up and running and for those who contributed a game to the event + select friends and family.
    I'm going to invite a few of my friends and family over and have nice evening playing pinball without the crowds of people. The last thing I want is a potential horde of AA members and having to stand in line to get a game on a machine.
