Comment Other Pinball Events (Score 1) 110

Being an avid pinball player I was pleased to see this make it onto /. I thought I would post some other great pinball events in California.

Already occured (but will happen again next year)
Pin A Go Go May 14-16 Dixon California
California Extreme July 17-18 2010 Santa Clara California

Pacific Pinball Expo Oct 1-3 2010

All of them are great shows and we're lucky here in northern California to have 3 great pinball conventions.

Also anyone else interested in pinball in the northern California area there is the Bay Area Pinball Association (BAPA)
There are a number of players in our league who compete in our local tournaments, as well as the various California Tournaments, and even national and international tournaments. In fact the #2 player at PAPA A division was from our league (Andrei).

Pinballers are a dying breed. Play while you can...join a league...have fun.

Keith Elwin Wins Pinball World Championship 110

Yesterday, writes reader woohoodonuts, "Keith Elwin won the world pinball championship in Pittsburgh, PA for the third consecutive year. The weekend-long event fielded 406 players from all over the world and distributed over $36,000 in prizes. The three games chosen in the final round were Stern Cheetah, Bally The Addams Family, and Bally Creature from the Black Lagoon. Keith scored over 500 million points on his final ball with $10,000 on the line to defeat fellow American, Andrei Massenkoff, by nearly 300 million points." Next year's gathering is slated for August 11-14, also in Pittsburgh.
