I’m looking forward to our next adventure to Banning, California. Pepperidge Farm is going to be doing an extending amount of remembering lots of things that we used to do, like live pinball tournaments.
Coverage of the 2019 Classics I Finals in Banning, California.
Meltdown Pinball Podcast – Ep. 10 – Urban, Belsito, Spolar, Harney, Johnson, Gottlieb & Associates, LLC Part 3
This is the third and final part of the It Never Drains in Southern California edition of The Meltdown Pinball Podcast … The conversation gets a little more tournament focused … as the competition is winding down …
This is Part 2 of the INDISC episode and it’s still happening while the It Never Drains in Southern California tournament was deep into the Final Round.
Special guests Antoinette Johnson (from Marco Specialties), Imoto Harney (from Imoto Arcade) and another special guest join me in the arcade/food/drink area at the Museum of Pinball in Banning, California.
“I built this collection picking them up one by one, and I put them in my house,” says John Weeks, who founded the museum together with his son, Johnathan Weeks. “I’d fill up buildings with them, storage units.”
There will be a variety of entertaining tournaments there including “Gauntlet” “Pingo” “Pinnect Four” “Parents Just Don’t Understand” and “Swing your Partners.”
Museum of Pinball released a video in support of their Kickstarter effort. Imagine if a budget, Storage Wars/pseudo-reality show was done by pinball people complete with the interstitial confessional segments to bracket the dramatic action.
Museum Of Pinball envisions a total of over 120,000 square feet of pinball and arcade games near Palm Springs, California, and they want to use Kickstarter to help them accomplish this goal.
