Unfortunately we will not be attending this year, but for anyone wondering, the wrestling was very entertaining for us last year and we're not even really wrestling fans.  We had a great time.

It's a great time cool venue nice hotel as well. Will be there again this year taking at least 4 pins with me and have room for more with the new 7x14 trailer.  If you guys want to bring a game but don't have room let me know would be willing to haul yours up for a little gas money.
Regards

In case some of you missed this in the SFGE newsletter.
The SFGE team is pleased to announce a couple of additional incentives for you to bring your pinball machines to the show:
 
1. We are pleased to announce ColorDMD as an official partner for SFGE 2017.  ColorDMD is offering a $50 discount on new displays for each ColorDMD enabled game exhibited at the show.  Support the show by bringing a game and take advantage of this additional reward!

    Order in advance and display in the game at the show and get a $50 refund after the show for each game exhibited.
    Order in advance for free shipping and pickup at the show and get a $50 refund after the show for each game exhibited.
    Bring game(s) with a display already installed and get a discount code for $50 off your next display(s).
    Contact ColorDMD at info@colordmd.com for details about the discount/rebate.  Contact ddebuss@yahoo.com for details about free shipping with show pickup.


2. Thanks to Twisted Quarter we have a supply of heavily discounted pinball leg beverage caddies (aka Pingulps) to install on your game during the show and take home with you after the show.  Game bringers can pick them up at game registration on Friday at our cost $8 of each for each game at the show.  Any extras will be sold for $10 each for the remainder of the weekend.  While supplies last.

Quick update on this.  Even though ColorDMD is out of stock they are going to prioritize SFGE displays.They are out of stock and are now taking orders for SFGE displays in advance from those that contact them at info@colordmd.com.  Payment is due prior to shipment at the end of the month.  At that point they will ship the pre-ordered displays to me for pickup at the show along with the signs that you need to attach to your game at the show.  This means that people that bring a game to SFGE will get first shot and their resupply.  In case you didn't know they don't normally take orders for stuff not in stock.  Thanks ColorDMD!

To net it out:
Save $50 on the display.
Save $20 on shipping.
--- That's in addition to the free weekend pass.  Just for bringing a game with a ColorDMD to SFGE!

Another quick update on ColorDMD at SFGE:
The current plan is to cut off orders on May 27th so they can get shipped out to me during the week of the 29th.

I saw the show listed in this months GAME INFORMER magazine in their gaming calendar. Good job! That's a pretty sizable feat.
