Was a pleasure to meet you after exchanging messages for sometime regarding JP😊 loved how much fun you were having when playing Munsters, I don't think I've heard someone laugh so much during pinball until then!

Just for reference, it was @stumblor (Davey) and @Lecari (Claire) who I introduced you to when you first approached "Which one of you is David?" 😁
I've been telling everyone about how you all made me feel welcome. Even pushing the Start button to include me in your game!

I love the way the video sequences on the new games integrate with the pinball game itself. For instance, when I got an extra ball on Munsters, Herman barged through a mesh fence to catch a ball thrown by his son! And in Mandalorian the litte Yoda fella was holding that silver ball from the top of a control lever. Absolutely brilliant!

It pleased me to see that pinball games still have an enthusiastic following and a future. I thought they had their day when more and more video games arrived as I assumed they would take far less maintenance due to less mechanical components.

Apologies for the delayed thanks as was on holiday with family straight after Pinfest and phone no longer working after dropping in the river - waiting to hear back from repair shop.

Awesome weekend as ever and one of the best shows. Really appreciate all the hard work that everyone involved in the show puts in, a lot of it unseen behind the scenes. Won't rename everyone here but just to echo others' appreciation of all involved.

Agree hotel not perfect but we're all there to play pinball and socialise so it ticks all the key boxes for me.

Looking forward to next year's show already.

A message from Mel at One Stop Pinball: -

The Charity machine collected £ 60 in the end so I doubled it and have just sent £ 120 to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Sent it from me rather than the business as that way they can also get the Gift Aid which increases it to £ 150 :)

If you can put a note on the website to thank everyone that played and if It goes next year ( weather dependent ) they would be nice to collect even more :)

Anyone know who won the ‘Mini Pin’ at all? All tickets buyers were entered into a draw apparently?
