The Michigan Pinball Expo kicks off this week !
Long as I could remember ,I have always have loved Pinball machines. Spent my early days around some of the favorite Arcades to the point I worked at one for a couple years. Not until the late 80's did I finally get a pinball game of my very own. The only problem is they are like potato chips . Once you get one you cant stop . Currently in my possession is 4 pinball games.
This is my favorite time of the year thanks to fellow pinball and Arcade Rats come together for 3 days of fun for everyone. My Fellow Pinball Pal John Kosmal &Greg Byrnes who hosts the Michigan Pinball Expo at Oakland University July 7-10th Pinball and also lots of Video classics will be on hand including a couple of my games.
