2011 Texas Pinball Festival

Somehow this has slipped my radar till now. This REALLY makes me want to make a quick visit up to my hometown.

Anyone going?
The PSTV is amazing.

I would love to, but there is no way I can get the time off.

Sweet, I'll probably be there too. I went in 2009 and 2010 and had a blast. In 2009 my brother got caught on ESPN's cameras because of Todd MacCulloch's attendance. :lol: The list of games already looks awesome!

I have friends in town that weekend and it's 3-4 hours away from me. Oh well.

I'll be there on Saturday and Sunday.
I have spousal clearance to buy my 4th pinball table at this show, so I'll be at the swap meet before the doors open on Saturday. I'll probably be sporting a backpack and a Shiner Bock (a TX brand of beer) visor if you want to say hi.

I attended this show for the first time last year. It was excellent - so many machines all set to freeplay. I took my daughters, and we all had a fun time. There are also usually a number of arcade cabs set up.
The pins and arcade cabs for this year's show are listed here: http://www.texaspinball.com/pinlist.htm
Systems: Pong, Odyssey2, Atari 2600, NES, CDX, SNES, N64, Saturn, DC, PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, GCN, Wii, Xbox360, OUYA
Handhelds: GB, GBC, GBA, DS lite, DSi, Virtual Boy (<< is that even a portable?)
EM Pinballs: Bally Dixieland, Gottlieb Flying Carpet
SS Pinball: GTB Circus, GTB Count-Down, GTB Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Stern Lectronamo, Stern Galaxy, Bally Black Pyramid
