Hope to see you there!

What game contest will they have for kids 10 and under?

Addams Family Redemption, Dinosaur Eggs, Punchy the Clown, Simpsons (coin facotry redemption), Bell Ringer, Nudge It, Mario Mushroom World - are there other games kids 10 and under would appreciate? I'd go just to see the kiddie game, as I like those. :)

Some updates..
About News, The show has been promoted locally, Thursday am i saw a news show that had a GameRoom full of Em's, they were playing Tropic Isle and had a Pit Stop next to it, yesterday a different station had more modern machines. I'll post a list of the pinball machines but I do know that a brand new in box, World Poker Tour was delivered on Thursday.

The show was excellent, my thanks go to anyone that made the show happen, i was like a kid in a candystore and loved playing some EM's that i hadn't played since the 70's. I met a few folks and hope i meet more pinheads, this was my first pinball show experience and it was very enjoyable!

It was awesome to get to play all of those pinball machines, I'll post links to lists and images (taken by others) when they are available. I'd rather report about the Em's but i tried World Poker Tour, i love card themes and it was cool. I had a fine 1st ball and handed it over to my wife, why don't they go back to 1000 points for doin' something neat? The EM's were excellent, I played a lot of EM!

Yeah, excellent show. Had a great time playing all sorts of different pins. I'll upload pics soon as I get them off my camera.

Feel free to add them to our Image Gallery Ryan. The link is on the left menu bar.

How do I get my own folder on the Image Gallery, so I can upload them all? Imageshack was too slow...
I would have taken a video but my phone isn't compatible.

I just made an album for you under Rochester Gameroom Show called Ryan's Photos. Simply click of Image Gallery, and then on Upload Images, and then find Rochester Gameroom Show - Ryan's Photo's, and that's where you add them. I think you can only add them 1 at a time. If you have lots of them send them to me in a zip and I can add them through ftp for you.

Pinball Wizard
I don't have that many.
When I select a category though, it doesn't have the folder as an option.(Went to image gallery, clicked into my section, clicked upload pic, did category scroll down bar...)
Don't want to put it in the wrong category.

Well, if you're not sure, send them to me and I'll add them. Being Admin, I might see the Gallery differently than you do. I'm lucky that I can Batch Add them so it's no big deal for me.
 

zerhino

Pinball Wizard
Sent it to ya in a PM. Hope to see them up soon... :)
Actually the file was too big so I'll try to email it to ya...
 

zerhino

Pinball Wizard
As you might have guessed the file was too big...could you possibly move it to the correct spot after I purposely upload to the wrong catagory?
