Just wondering if there is a list of confirmed pins for this? The website shows 2018 info. Also what plans (if any) are there for the Saturday evening.

Ben, it's in a pub which will be open until 11pm (possibly later) the machines are subject to change and what people bring. You don't need to have a list of machines (there is bound to be one game you like), turn up, play and enjoy.

Understand - looking forward to it will probably arrive late afternoon with the aim to spend the evening there

I just realised it is going to be £89 as I booked it for the wrong day.. I won't be paying £89...

Now going - I cannot justify that, requested an AirBnB at £21.... so if anyone has space in their taxi at the end of the night and pickup in the morning - please let me know.

I'll be there on the saturday, but driving home. Its only about an hour for me.

Then coming back on the sunday with the kids.

If I'm still about at kicking out time, I'll happily offer a lift but think I might have gone before then.

it's only a 45 min drive for me. Shame it's on an F1 weekend (yeah, I'm an addict) otherwise I might have come, :(
Hamilton wins from Bottas, Ferrari aren't quite there and compound that by making multiple late strategy calls to swap the cars, verstappen does a great job for forth, followed at a distance by Gasly. McLaren vs Renault was the most interesting fight of the race for 6-9th and Kimi is in the top ten. One of the Hass has a spin and the other runs someone off the road. William's come last and 2nd to last.

There you go - now you can go and play pinball!

Skysports yeah, but it is a case of one or the other. With Practice, quali and support races, That's pretty much solid viewing on saturday from 9am to 5pm and SUnday from 9am to 4pm.

That wouldn;t leave much pinball time :)

Though of course that does leave saturday evening free, so I could perhaps come over for that :)

Grand prix will be on, as will practise. Doubt anything else will be, but the pinball comp normally takes a break so people can watch the GP .

Well, I wouldn't be taking part in the comp anyway, and after reading more on the website, it seems the games will be mostly busy for the comp on the Sunday, so it wouldn't really be worth my while travelling over on the Sunday anyway.

I hadn't realised (due to the title of this thread) though that it actually begins Friday evening. I might come over then instead :)

One of lifes pleasures is watching the GP whilst tucking into a Sunday Roast in Swavesey. Looking forward to an early knock out in the comp as planned.
All depends on how well one plays and that the tables behave!! Good luck I look forward to playing along side you! Does anyone know what time the last bus is back to Cambridge on the Sunday?

@Benleigh250 - I need a taxi back to my place - it's on the way, so we can grab a taxi together as I am sure others will need cabs too, plenty of lift share opportunities.
Should be fine .... need to get to travel lodge late afternoon so I can check in.
