Yes, Holiday Inn one block over the guys from Double Danger Pinball actually visited and stayed there last night. I’m going to try to see if we can get a block of rooms discounted, less than 5 minute walk.

Looking forward to this event!


+1 for this event! Tommy is a great TD, and Main Street Amusements is world class. I’m strongly considering flying out from Texas…


I’ll be sure to bring a few people from Louisville, regional rivalry is the best.

Sorry Tommy. Got a chance to see my favorite band in Red Rocks that same weekend so my wife and I won’t be able to make it. Next year for sure!

Sounds awesome, added calendar alert for June 1st!

Thanks for such a fun event, the lack of ball save was humbling to say the least. I never realized how much I rely on that.

Thanks for coming and I hope it was a good time. Sorry I forget to check over here at Tilt often but I think it went great and we ended up raising a lot of money for the local no kill animal shelter so it was a great weekend!


I like the Black Sabbath winner creeping in the background in the second picture. How many folks did you end up with?


There were 32 exactly.

That makes grouping so much easier! I love when you get a multiple that lends itself to the format so perfectly.
