Just a little bump for this as it's now less than 2 weeks out, and we have some spots available. Should prove to be a really fun time. Pinball. Music. Food. And of course, great people.

Here's a picture from last years tourney, where artist Dawn Marie Svanoe and model Deandrea Brown put together this incredible Sorcerer outfit based on the backglass. Really impressive!!

Just email me at sspindler@ameritech.net to get your spot reserved. Look forward to rockin' out and playing some pinball!
