Episode 33- Not Live from the Theater!

Updates: first things first. You fell asleep on the last show. Care to explain???

 

ESP Updates- We had dinner back in December for everyone who has helped East Side thrive another year. It was Chris & his family, Andrew and his Girlfriend, Dan our League Director, John Jundt our Tournament Director and his family, and myself. 

Lineup Changes- Wizard of Oz went down the yellow brick road in December. We sold Hook recently and has been removed and will be replaced by Aerosmith what thats released at some point this year. 

Numbers- Since we are a few weeks overdue for our regularly scheduled programing, here is a breakdown of 2016!

How was it earned?
60% was Cash/Quarters
40% was PayRange

Winter Leagues- We have a brand new season that kicked off Thursday run by our League Director Dan Dolney. Tons of new faces! We added a $300 bounty for 1st place to peak interest. Definitely heard leagues are down across the country in some way or another. We hit up social media heavily during January and early February to maintain. 

Service Calls…
17 service calls in a single week. Unable to drive at night in December the games suffered my daily ADD with maintaining them. Notable calls-

Walking Dead- Zombie literally fell off

Game of Thrones- Flipper Rebuild

Elvira- Flipper Rebuild

Star Trek- Broke plastic under ship and rebuilt upper flipper.

Eight Ball Deluxe- Pop Bumper came loose fell onto power board blew everything up

Metallica- Drop target issues

South Park- Blew up transistors, diode, Arcade Kris came up to help get her back up and running. I may or may not have not had one of the molex connectors plugged in all the way or out of sequence. I don't really wanna talk about it. 

AMOA this March!
PayRange is sponsoring my trip to Texas! I am SO EXCITED to be heading to the show. email tony@eastsidepinball.com if you are attending! I would love to meet up with you! I will be in booth 1037!

PinPortal- Adrian and are going to actually finish Portal in the next 30 days! We want to get this out for others to use and enjoy! We are beginning our nightly operation next week!

Arcade Kris- I have talked with Arcade Kris on most Fridays believe it or not. Last I heard it was still a little cold out the fair! :-)

Angry Andy- still hates pinball but does an amazing job keeping up the games. 

Corndog Invention? Rumor has it Chris has been trying to make the stick out of catchup and mustard? My god those are liquids not solids!
