A great story from Graham TerMarsch - three donated Bally Big Times were used to teach kids at his son's school about reverse engineering and they ended up restoring one of the games - congratulations everyone! https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1407769 https://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/pinball-machine-comes-back-to-life-thanks-to-nides-students/ This week I also wanted to highlight a couple of interesting notes on the Pinside forum regarding bingos: One person has trouble with their left and right buttons in a Magic Screen game, with a simple, but easy to overlook fix: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/move-magic-screen-right-problems And second, another owner converts his beautiful Bally "Bikini" to have wooden rails - an interesting modification: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/wood-side-rails The Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown is this weekend, June 8-10 in Denver, CO. Phil Bogema will be there this year and will be bringing two beautifully restored Bally bingos: Parade and Carnival Queen. Phil does stunning work, and I look forward to hearing the show reports from players there. https://www.pinballshowdown.com/index.html Today is the penultimate "Year of Flipperless" game: 1932's Amusement Corporation of America's "Ski-Doo 23": http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2175 As always you can find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/foramusementonlypodcast/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/bingopodcast/ Twitter https://twitter.com/bingopodcast Thank you for listening!
