April or May FLiPS?
« on: April 03, 2017, 07:01:08 PM »
Anyone interested in hosting this month or next month?

If we can't find a host, we could throw the 4 toy machines won at Cristian's in the back of the suburban and meet at a 7-11 where we can get some Mountain Dew and snacks.  I'll organize a split-flipper zen-tourney on them ;)

Let me know :)

           I have offered  a couple of times in the past.  I can help host a pinball party this month for you flips guys and gals if you are interested.  I can put out some good food, beers , sodas and snacks.    Check out all the current modding projects and play all the new Sterns.   Aerosmith just arrived last week , and I'm sure everyone would love to jam on it.   Let me know if I can help out.  Chuck

Chuck-

Thanks for offering to host.

After I posted last week, I looked more carefully at the calendar for April, and realized the first weekend of April was the LSOG open house, the past weekend was the IFPA tourney at Sebastian's, the next weekend is Easter and the weekend of the 22nd is the pingolf event at the Asylum, which many FLiPS members and guests have attended or will be attending. 

In talking with several people participating in all the pinball activities and with Easter weekend right in the middle, it is just not practical to have a FLiPS event this month.

Again, thank you.

Thank you for offering. But yes, you are correct; Safety Harbor is out of the FLiPS radius of travel for most people.   WPB,  Broward and Miami Dade are the primary regions.  Even then, it can be a hike for people living at the extremes of the counties. 

Again, thank you.

You had  such a long unbroken streak of monthly flips events.   Are you still looking for a May flips host ?

The streak was *technically* broken a while back ;)

I do have a few people I have been talking with regarding hosting in May and the rest of the year is covered.

When I know something concrete I can pass along to members and guests, it will be posted here :)

 I am doing a party April 22nd.  I can offer that weekend or the next weekend April 29 th or 30th (sat or sun) and do another party for Flips if you are interested.  I just wanted reply to your  post and try and help out for the love of pinball.
