I’m actively trying to convince my girlfriend to come out to this with me for my birthday.


It’s a great weekend for pinball. There is another tournament right after the Hobowen Classic, and the next day is Portland Pinbrawl! Pinbrawl is sold out but you can get on the waiting list.

@Slamtilt you really should come out. Spring is a beautiful time here in Portland and there is so much to do. Let us know if we can help in any way with travel suggestions.

@ntstell is having one after. He can link up his Facebook event.

Im hosting an evening BBQ and pin tourney at my place. Here is the facebook page. Please post pictures of tood you will cook. I may be going to buy a Shaq Attack today, which I know is a terrible decision, but you may get to play it at the tourney.

I hear there’s a pretty sweet green picnic table to put all the food on at @ntstell house.

Also, we are half sold out of the 34 spots for #hobowen classic. Sign up sign up!

This content is currently unavailable. Maybe its the Shaq Attack?

@ntstell I thought you said no bad atti-toods.

I am unsure. Link works for me.

Should work now.
