    Had a great time this year. Played a lot more pinball this time due to bigger venue and more machines. Hope to come to some of the okc meet ups soon.

    The TPF mixer tournament results are in! (Mostly)
    Congratulations to Josh who won with 2 first place rounds and one second place finish! Other results are listed in the forum.

    I am missing a few of the mixer tournament score tickets. If you have them, or remember your scores, reply here or to me personally so I can publish the results and winner. Also, ticket 11 did not have a name attached. Let me know if you think it was yours.

      11 was in my first group. That group was me, Amanda, Thomas, and Jon Stewart's sister. Sorry Jon, I forgot her name.

    Many thanks to Shawn for organizing the meeup and printing up the badges. My hands are a little sore from playing so much pinball, but I still had to fire up the RAB this morning at the house and play a few games. I guess all the practice paid off because I got a new personal best!

    I should have badges for everyone, so if you see me, come say hi and I'll give your badge to you. I encourage everyone to wear them and I also have business cards that we can handout in case we run across someone who still doesn't know about us yet. By the way, today I will be wearing a PAPA15 T-shirt with brown cargo shorts.

    March 15, 2013

    • Miss D.

      I'll probably meander in around noon tomorrow. My digits: [masked] let me know what's up!! I've been doing my wrist and finger exercises!! Ready to game!!

    • Nate E.

      I'm planning on going around 8 or 9 and spending all day there. I'll be wearing a Devon/Thursday polo. If you are there in the morning, I'll be by my self and would enjoy some company. Couldn't talk the wife into spending all day at a nerdy pinball convention (her words). :-)

  • Nate E.

    does anyone know if you can still get into the tournament play starting saturday morning or do you need to qualify on Friday? The website kinda gave me impressions that it was both ways in different spots.

    March 15, 2013

    • Cole

      You should be good to go, the earliest ending qualifying deadline is 5 pm on Sat. for the modern tournament.

      March 15, 2013

    March 15, 2013

  • Shawn L.

    Let's plan on getting together after Steve Ritchie's seminar(4ish). I am unfamiliar with the Anatole, so if anyone familiar with the place knows of a good location to congregate and have a beverage before hitting the pins, I welcome your suggestions.

      Inside the festival There will be a lounge area/Snack bar so forth. We can meet inside the lounge area. What do you think?

      March 11, 2013

    March 10, 2013

  • Miss D.

    UGH I am going back and forth as to whether I should go....the list of pins is calling me....but being financially responsible must be weighed out...I hate being a grown up! As to the shirts I have been in bed for four days with a bug, gonna give my hook up a call in the AM.

      Thanks Don. After looking at the event schedule, I'm suggesting we meetup after the Steve Ritchie seminar. Thoughts?

    • Don M.

      Yeah, sounds good!

      February 24, 2013

    Tenatively attending - Good intentions, but sometimes life happens

    January 20, 2013

  • Shawn L.

    For anyone who is on the fence about going, please feast your eyes on the ridiculous line-up of machines and THEN tell me you're not dying to be there.

    January 14, 2013

  • Luke

    My wife and I plan on going Saturday. Probably drive down Friday night.

    January 9, 2013

  • Shawn L.

    The time and day of the meetup is completely negotiable. We probably won't be able to nail it down until we have the seminar schedule. I know I want to see Gomez's talk and likely Steve Ritchie's as well.
