this sunday is the scottish pinball meet. anyone who wants to come is more than welcome. although its governed by the uk pinball league, it is essentially a fun day playing pinballs. you dont need to join the league you dont even need to play pinball. there will be a great atmosphere and a great friendly bunch of folk. if you fancy it make the effort.

details.    show up for about 2 oclock. full address will be sent by pm.

cheers.

update,

the meet went well, as per normal. it was nice to meet malcolm from aberdeen, the last time i saw him it was at replay last year. also good to meet jugemscloud, he was declared youngest and fittest, so was declared in charge of transporting the bevvy. we met jugemscloud at queen st station, had a couple of beers then we went for tickets and discovered it was the wrong station LOL so we walked down to central, and had a couple of beers in the hard rock cafe, they had an avatar pinball. we then went for tickets and were told no trains stopped at jons on a sunday LOL i think we had another beer then we jumped a fast black over to jons.

sadly i did both my wrists in on the saturday moving cabs about Cry but i persevered and managed an 8th place. picked up 8 points. roz bud showed up and even managed to pick up 4 points. malcolm who drove down from aberdeen made it worth his while by picking up a second place Thumbs Up with j higgins retaining first place Clap 

another great day playing pinballs, so once again its a big thanks to jon and nikki for hosting it, and supplying food and drinks non stop for the day. another great meet made possible by the time and effort put in by jon and nikki.

thanks guys we do appreciate it.

cheers.

well another great day was had Thumbs Up the revenge from mars was way cool, a very nice pinball indeed. cactus canyon was very nice to play, as were they all. jon took second i took third, so hopefully over all im now back to second place. only 1 meet left now before the finals. i got a huge score on apollo 13, but sadly it wasnt recorded. only 63,000 from a new high score on it, i racked up a 100,000 score on cactus canyon, a new record. then jon humped it getting 150,000 plus Censored the revenge from mars was the biz Thumbs Up its a 3d video thing, quite a fast pinball. it puts baby pacman way down the list LOL i did try to snaffle the revenge pinball offering him both of mine, i even offered a defender, no joy. im sure i can wangle a deal out of him LOL next time i see him i will offer more stuff. mrs bud is now getting hooked on pinball Thumbs Up i have promised her i will get more, but its going to take time. i nearly finished the maze in mr + mrs pacman, iamcromby completed it first shot Censored closest i have been is 1 dot short. world cup soccer is a real fun pinball plenty happening with lots of features, the same for judge dread loads of features. the only problem for me with judge dread is that its too wide for me, im not comfy on widebody pinballs. good to see jugemsclous again Thumbs Up pity he had to leave so soon. so al in all another great day of pinball action. special thanks of course must go to jon and nikki for the time and effort put in. i dont eat cakes much, but there was a very nice cake getting eaten, dont know who made it. so thanks again to our hosts jon and nikki for putting on another great day for us to enjoy.

cheers.

spent the weekend trying to configure the hardare in the id cab, still gubbed Cry
mrs factor would have had a great time. it was a good display of pinballs. the revenge pinball was weird ??? the screen reflected onto the playfield, which made the top third of the pinball look like 3d Thumbs Up roz was well taken by it. i could have got it for the id cab, but it wasnt happening Tongue hope its sunny in germany its raining here LOL there is 1 more meet before the biggy, so hopefully you and the mrs can make it for that 1. oh and the cactus canyon was a joy to play, very very smooth game play and comfy with it.
