904 Pinball Zine
« on: March 20, 2011, 10:32:05 AM »
This thread is a hybrid introduction / news article.
I grew up with this 1974 Sky Jump that I just fixed up.
From late 2007 to early 2009 I lived, worked and played in Seattle.
I lived 2 blocks from Shorty's  which has 14 pins at all times (spoiled?).
Skill Shot is the Seattle pinball zine which was a treasure hunt map of sorts for me.
Since back my fix for pinball hasn't been filled.

After finding some machines around here,
fixing my parents' old one and finding more people passionate about pinball
I have been inspired to start a printed pinball zine for the 904 area code.

For the time being I have a list of machines and photos on the facebook page here...
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_204737299539297

There are 39 Total in the 904 Area Code right now.
Basically this is ground level of awareness about pinball in the 904 area code.

Once I have it drawn out and have looked everywhere possible I will print 1000 copies.
This is the start and I see awareness only exploding.

This is awesome.

I am joining your group now. I know of a few more that can be added to the list, but we need to verify if they are still there.

For example, the Dick's Wings on Kernan had a LOTR for awhile.

Welcome to the group!

Steve

P.S. I have pins and vids. If you are ever in South Mandarin, you are welcome to stop by and play.

Right on Steve, thanks for the quick reply.
I'm certain there are more machines around town and keeping an eye out.
I'll be taking ya up on that offer sometime and will be in touch.

This sounds like an awesome project!
I also joined the FB group. I don't get out much to scout out machines due to my work schedule, but it's nice to know where they are and that they are actually out there.
I've only been collecting for a year, but have a shuffle bowler, F-14 that is getting the PF restored and a shop job and a 1974 Grand Slam that will be getting the same treatment soon. I have plenty of room to expand, but I am restricting myself to one project at a time and holding out for certain old favorites.
Welcome to the board.
Sounds like we need to organize a FLIPS type of group for the Jax area.

Welcome to the board!

We used to have a pinball on location deal in Google Maps, but somehow it got overwritten by a Golf Tournament?? Sucks!

If you'd like we can link to your Pinball finder (consider going state wide? we can make you the official pinball locator for the group lol)

let us know when you get the zine off the ground we can link to it for you on the main page or if you need a place to host it we can do that too.

We're up to 30 pinball machines verified in the 904 area code.
There are a few more to verify and we're still seeking out more.
Once we hit 40 machines it'll be time to print out an issue.

The Dick's wings around there is on Beach Blvd.
The place with the LOTR on Kernan is a Fast Boys wings.
It's quite playable but hasn't been cleaned in a long long time.

I've been on the lookout.

Did anyone verfiy the LOTR is still at Dick's wings on Kernan?

We're up to 36 in the 904 area code.
Going into mode to get this finish and printed once we have over 40.
