The Barn 2021 - bigger than Ben Hur edition


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So looking through a bunch of photos trying to find Yee at meets and I got nostalgic.

 

I also had to cancel one of these due to COVID and promised to dust it off once things settled down.

 

Anyway. F**k it.

 

Fire pits.

Beers.

Shots.

Shit talk.

Circle of trust.

Pinball.

Camping.

All weekend (Friday to Sunday).

No F**king Comps.

August (weekend TBA).

 

AA’s longest running, intermittent, last minute, whatever the f**k event is back and bigger than ever.

 

AA’s finest riff-raff welcome to attend.

 

This ones for you Yee.

 

*********

 

Update 01/07/21

 

Dates - 27-29th August

 

How much to attend? - $100. I don't care if you come for a day or the whole 3 days the price is the same.

 

But that isn't fair - If you don't like it, sorry, but this is about making things easy for me, not you.

 

Kiwis - no fee payable

 

How do I pay? - paypal no exceptions. If you can't use paypal, either find someone to pay for you, or don't bother coming. I won't accept cash, and under no circumstances will I accept bank transfer. Its a pain in the arse, and quite frankly if something goes wrong, you may wait a year to get it back (there are two people on here who can vouch for that). Pinging me here repeatedly does no good because in between meets I don't visit AA anymore, and haven't for several years. So it is paypal or nothing. FYI the reason I don't come here anymore is because it is like an alcoholic walking into a brewery, best to be avoided.

 

What do I get for that? - well you get access to one of the largest playable collections of pinball machines in the country. Generally speaking 96 games at any given time ranging from EMs to late Sterns.

 

Where does the money go? - some money goes to Dan to cover wear and tear on his machines. Some money goes to Edy to fix stuff and keep everything running. Some money goes to my electricity bill. Some money goes to new parts to replace the things that break after a meet (usually 5-10 games). Almost always something goes wrong with my septic and I end up paying huge money to fix it. The usual. I also will keep snags and bread rolls flowing throughout the event so no-one goes hungry. Never ran an event in the pinball space that makes money, so no-one is being ripped here except me.

 

Covid - I'm going to assume everything works out just fine however I won't start taking payment till after this latest lockdown ends. If covid strikes again I will give everyone a full refund (this is why we use paypal, it makes refunds easy, and things that take up too much of my time don't happen).

 

Any questions, dump them in this thread and Edy will eventually get the answer out of me!

 

Cheers!

Sounds good except the August bit. Week burn off down the farm happens first to second week of August and I can't put that off. Our burns saved the farm last year in the bushfires. Let me know if you need firewood this year. Might not be able to make it but I can atleast make sure everyone is warm if I drop it off earlier.

I usually do these at the end of August. Just need to check what is already in the diary with the missus.
