Great Show! Thanks!
« on: May 03, 2015, 07:39:08 PM »
I had a great time this weekend!  You all did a fantastic job putting this event together.  Awesome titles and even some I haven't seen before. Thanks again for all the hard work and I hope to see everyone soon.

A big thank you to all that made the show possible!  I'm always happy to make the drive from Orlando to support the show! I liked the tournament as it makes you appreciate games you would otherwise not play as seriously.  The competitive aspect makes it really fun.  Thanks again for letting me borrow the socket wrench to fix my car too!  I hope to get a few of my games looking as good as the ones at the show.  Mid 90s Sega stuff doesn't get the repros the classics do but I'll be out on the look out for parts to try to perfect my games like the ones at the show.  Stellar job Jax team!
Always looking for Sega stuff, especially any of the Model2 games. If you have anything Sega you are willing to trade, send me a PM! :)

Fantastic job by the Jax team.  For the first show in a very long time I think I actually played about 100 games.  By today I just couldn't play my wrists hurt so bad :)

fun times.

I still couldn't get far enough in Journey to get the tape to play but had a blast trying. Did finally beat NARC after 25 years.

Great show look forward to next year!

The positive vibes emanating from this show were amazing.
It was a pleasure to come up and be a part of it.
Thank you Steve, Dug, and the Jax crew for all the time spent in putting it all together.

We had a blast!   8)  Thanks to Doug, Steve, and all of those who made the show happen.  I played Joust 2 for the first time ever - that one goes on the list!  Also, someone had posted 1M on the Battlezone mini. I don't know if it was done at the show, but that was impressive.

My wife Jessie and I had a great time on Friday night. We hope to get more involved having bought our first pin a couple of months ago.
 I am wondering however about the drawing  and how it went and who won? We have checked our phones and email numerous times figuring there must be something wrong with them, since we haven't heard we won.  ;) LOL  - Looking forward to future shows and meeting more members. Thanks again, Tim

My buddy and I both loved the show, good selection of games, enough so they weren't overcrowded. The Holiday Express hotel was also nice with great free breakfast. Great job by the organizers, will be back next year! Thanks!!  :)

Thanks for all the positive feedback. Still moving games right now, but I promise a full rundown of all the events as soon as I get a chance to stop running!

Ditto on what Steve said - lots of after show stuff to wrap up so there hasn't been much time to post.  I'm working on getting the video of the pinball raffle drawing posted so that should be up this afternoon.
