Sounds good to me.

I’m not the club starter type, but I’d be glad to pitch in and help. (I don’t own any machines.)

Used to love pinball and was pretty decent. Doubt I’m good any more, but would love to relearn my skills.

I would really like to participate.

I would really like to own one Pinball Machine and another Bar Game called Tapper! They financed my drinking career when I was a youngin. So did shooting pool. I stopped drinking in 1994 and found out that my skill was in the Bottle cause without being tipsy I had no game. I definitely like it better this way. Thank God!!

Been restoring and collecting pinball and old arcade machines for over 30 years. Been a part time Villager for 6 years but still have my collection in New York. Probably owned close to 300 machines throughout the years. Currently my collection is around 60 games spanning from 1940’s through today. Mostly 60s Gottlieb single player wedgeheads. Still trying to figure where they will go when I finally come down full time. Count me in for starting a club and very willing to help in the setup and administration. Coming down around November 5th for about a month so maybe we can have a meet up.

Also, if you have a machine that needs some repair or TLC I’m more than willing to help.

Count me in. I've got a Lord of the Rings that's in good playable condition. Also have a project Devil's Dare in the garage that is in the process of being rebuilt.

I’m interested! I have a mid-70’s Bally Champ EM game. I just put on all new rubber, rebuilt both flippers, replaced two of four scoring coils, and did a bunch of debugging on the logic. Very playable now. Back glass art could stand restoration.

Please keep me posted!
