    Yeah agree. Last year I really enjoyed just wandering around talking and playing a few games, doing some maintenance and such rather than the pressure of a comp on top of all that.

    It does take a bit to keep these ol' girls running all day non- stop and I mean non-stop copping a years worth of games in 2 days and no matter how much you prepare them things still happen which is why we spend Saturday night adjusting / replacing / scratching heads. My thoughts are this event has always been about the fun and social side of pinball and given the amount of comps out there these days I think there is plenty out there already to keep the pinball competitor going.

    For those who have been to Pinfest I reckon we do a pretty good job (if I may say so) keeping a very high % going all the time with minimum machines turned off. Sure we get stuck balls but that's pinball.

    The Junkyard in public play was ours and is now residing in QLD.

    Yes and they are strict about that. Remember the year when we had "a visit" from the local constabulary to make sure we were all about to leave and there was no untoward going on.

    @hamo54. Tell the people what incentives we have in place for people that want to get involved and front up with a reliable pinball for the public to play on this our 5 year anniversary and join the fun.
