Hi guys it's that time again that the NLP ask you to pledge machines for our Blackpool show being held at the Norbreck exhibition centre on 27th 28th October 2018.
Bringing a machine to the show will get you free entry for the weekend, if you can bring enough to fill a van then please PM me and I can give details on what we can pay for van hire. Ideally we want you to come along with a pin for the weekend.
This year we are only looking for 50 to 60 machines so a lot less than what we usually ask for so hopefully we should soon reach our target.
Shows like this can't happen without the generosity of the pinball community so please help if you can, also if you have never taken your machine to a show then make this your first. We look forward to meeting up again with all our friends and supporters so please help out and lets make the last big show of the year a great one.
D.

Hi, excuse my ignorance, why "only" 50-60 machines, is it a smaller venue or do you already have some?
I only did my first show at Daventry which was great and want to know is this comparable as its a lot further to travel for me,
Thanks, Tom

The show itself is not just pinball, Play Expo shows are all things arcade, pinball, console, PC , traders and much more. NLP is only a part of that. Daventry of course was pinball only.
Plus in comparison to years past, the Norbreck hotel is far smaller than Event city. Who knows when its at the GMEX how much bigger it'll be

Well if that isn't the most varied list ever,especially as it's still low numbers. Would be mega varied for 100 pins let alone that low number, awesome 😀

I will be hiring a SWB Transit to travel across from Hull to Blackpool so if anyone needs anything taking I will have space in the van for another 4 (think you can get 6 in a transit right?) machines in addition to the 2 I'm taking.

ONE MONTH TO GO :clap::clap:

Hands up if you want to reserve a spot at the now traditional "Lights Out, Lock In".

For those not aware, it's an after-show party at the event, running on the Saturday shortly after the show officially closes to the public and goes on until late. I'm hearing that the arcade guys may open up their section again too, so you'll have a huge amount of pins and video cabs to play in a really exclusive venue with hardly anyone else around! Oh, and we'll even chuck in pizza and snacks too!

Pin loaners get first refusal on the available spots, just £5 per person for pin-loaners (and loaners can also get another ticket for one guest at £5 too)
We still have some space for more pin loaners. Please let us know ASAP if you can bring a pin in the back of your car, and you'll get free entry to the show, and discounted entry to the lock in

Once the pin loaners have been taken care of, we should have spots available for anyone else at £10 per person
...And of course, you'll need a normal entry ticket to the event. You can't just turn up for the night session! Discounted tickets to the event can be purchased from our site at www.ukpinball.com/twilightzone

Let me know if you want a lock-in spot by posting or sending a PM please.
