Emerald Coast Con
« on: August 16, 2018, 10:45:17 AM »

Emerald Coast Con is around the corner...



http://emeraldcon.com/buy-tickets/

They are going to have an arcade / pinball room again this year.

http://emeraldcon.com/retro-gaming-lounge/

D. Kendrick and J. Cope have been carrying the burden as game bringers and volunteers for this show.

I know I've heard in our steering-committee meetings that there is interest in this group to foster more outside-the-home public-facing arcade and pinball events.

Having an arcade and pinball friendly con like this in our back yard is a great opportunity to do just that.

Are you planning to attend? Anyone willing to bring a (or multiple) games to the show? Any volunteers to help in other ways?

Considering running a small-boot-strapped pinball tournament.  We don't have all of the fancy cameras n' such but we do have a couple iPads available and an matchplay.events account to work on.

Just got back from the Con and it was a lot of fun. About ten nicely maintained pins and a dozen or so arcade games,  my son and I had a great time there.   Thanks to the organizers for putting this on.
