I know there are a bunch of other Pinburgh threads here, but I wanted mine to be separate. This might get long, so I apologize in advance. I also wanted to post this here because I see that some of the people responsible for this event are frequent posters.
First of all I’d like to say Thank You! I really can’t repeat that enough…Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! All of the guys and girls that put on this event are rock stars! I can’t wrap my head around the volume of work that has to go into this event. It’s mind boggling, seriously.
I run a league of 25ish players and monthly tournaments that draw about 8 - 15 people. I know all the work that I have to go through. Sending out emails, printing out score sheets, making sure there are enough pens, charging batteries in laptops / iPads, entering scores, checking entered scores, updating the website, and on and on and on.
I just can’t fathom how much work is involved when you have a thousand machines to not only move but to fix, 850 players + guests, iPhone / Android Apps, streaming gear, commentators, volunteers to organize, tools to bring and about a billion other things I wouldn’t even think about.
Just leveling all those machines makes me want to have a heart attack. I hate when I have to check the level and clean the damn glass on the ones in my house, let alone a thousand of them.
I thank you all for providing me with the best pinball experience I’ve ever had and something I will NEVER FORGET as long as I live. I didn’t even dream that Pinburgh / ReplayFX would be so kick ass and so well run. I would consider it perfect in every way and couldn’t find anything to complain about even if you paid me…seriously. If anyone says anything different to any of you, well, I’m not going to write here what I would say to them, but it wouldn’t be nice.
Once again, to all of you involved, please pat yourself on the back for me. For those of you that I didn’t get a chance to thank in person, THANK YOU!!! You made my first Pinburgh an experience of a lifetime. From the bottom of my heart, you have my gratitude and respect.
Is it Pinburgh 2019 yet?
