I'm cool with working around Nephasth's plans as much as possible.

I'm definitely flexible too, could do the RMPS as well if we meet up on Sunday. Didn't realize it was in the tech center this year!

Wow prices for the show are more than I thought they would be! I'd rather put it on a bar tab  :cheers:, any consensus on the meet up date/time?

I am pretty sure I can make the RMPS on Sunday as well. 
I might be able to swing a 1/2up on Friday or Saturday evening.  :cheers:

Not sure about Friday/Saturday, my scheduler has something planned for us I think. Sunday though at the RMPS definitely should work for me. I have not played pinball in quite awhile, sounds like fun!

I'll be at RMPS throughout the weekend; I'm bringing a DK and Millipede in for the show. It'd be great to meet some of you guys.
I also live about a mile from 1UP and I'm always looking for an excuse to walk down there.

So I guess the main focus is the RMPS for the shorter term.  I'm still open to trying to add a 1/2up deal but that is secondary at this point.

It sounds like we are going to meet up on Sunday.  How early can you guys make it?  It opens at 9.

Nephasth- what is your schedule man!?

A total aside...
The Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time is a documentary I just stumbled across.  I guess there are a few collectors from the Denver area in it:

Includes Colorado collectors Dan Gutchess, Jon Jamshid, Mark Draher, and Jeff Hendrix

If anyone else is interested in checking this out, let me know.

Planning on arriving around noon on Friday. Staying at the Tech Center Friday night. It's looking like my friend from Casper will be driving himself, so I'll probably leave late Saturday night. As far as when I'll be where specifically,  no idea. Playing it by ear.

For some reason I thought the event was this weekend, doh! Next Sunday I could make it pretty much anytime.

Plans are beginning to fall into place for me. Looks like I'll be at the 1UP tomorrow for lunch, around 11-12, as I make my way down to the show.

This is where I think things stand.

There are two events with days/times:
- the RMPS is Friday-Sunday.
- There has been a 1up time defined by Nephasth as a Friday lunch.

Nephasth- 1UP Friday for lunch, RMPS Friday and Saturday.
34k - "at RMPS throughout the weekend"
Sharpfork - I can't make the Friday 1UP lunch but am planning on hitting the RMPS early on Sunday.  I will look for 34k.  If anyone else is going to make it, I'm happy to share cell # so we can meet up.  I'll have a red KADE shirt on BTW.
Furry131- "I think i could make it sunday"  are you headed down?

I can make the RMPS Sunday, around 11-12pm. I don't have anything in the afternoon so I'm free to hang until around 4-5.

Sorry I missed meeting up. I didn't see any forum updates and it was too nice of a weekend to not be outside with the family!  8)

It was a fun show, I played more pinball then I have in my entire life. The classic video game room was small, but there was a nice selection of cabs: Robotron, DK/DK II, Stargate, Tron, Mappy, Centipede, Millipede, Qbert, Asteroids, Ms Pac cabaret, Space Invaders, Big Buck Hunter, and two MAME cab setups.

 All those dates work for me. How about our other Denver-ites, up to drop some quarters at the 1up in June?

I'm still generally good for this weekend or next.  I've stopped by flipper McGill's a few times in recent weeks so my quarter stash isn't as vast as CraftyMech's!

I booked out 1-3 this sunday, the 30th.  I'll check with the keeper of the master house schedule to make sure this works.

Anyone have a good way to get ahold of Exidy to see if there is shmupp at 1 oe 2up?

Cool, that time works for me as well!

Other than Shmups, you might try KLOV, I know he is a member there as well.

Beware the ghost pepper burger!!  :blowup:

I did have my best ever game of Pac-Man though on a speed hack board set with maximum lives: 504,320  :woot

Played my first round of Tapper, made it to the second screen of Satan's Hollow finally, and discovered 2 player Joust is much more fun than 1 player Joust!

Good times dropping quarters and discussing projects.  :cheers:

I figured I would poke in over here and see if there was any denver activity and sure as ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---. Good to see it, here is what I currently have in my basement, not pictured is my crus'n USA sitdown that I am working on right now.

You'll definitely have to come out next time we meet up at the 1UP and talk shop with us and drop some quarters.

I'll be in Denver all weekend. Plan on hitting up both the 1UP and the 2UP while I'm there. Hopefully find some other places to play some pins too.

Anyone going to the Kong Off 3 this weekend?  CraftyMech and I are trying to pick a day to go and Saturday is looking good.  I personally want to go there earlier to avoid the bar crowd.

Kong Off was awesome! More DK machines then I have ever seen before in one place. The final scores are in and it was a really competitive event, with 9 out of the top 10 spots over 1 million points.
