Some website notes for both locals and visitors
If you are looking for somewhere to play pinball when you’re not at NWPAS this weekend take a look at our pinball list (link at the top). Tacoma now has it’s own section under the “road trip” link. If you’re from Seattle you may want to go to the Airport Tavern or the7 Seas Brewery to play the Jersey Jack’ Guns N Roses pinball machine since it’s pretty scarce in Seattle outside of the Seattle Pinball Museum. I’m pretty sure there will not be one at this year’s show. Note: the AAV next to a location’s name stands for All-Ages Venue (all of the rest are 21+).
Visitors looking for local tournaments should go to our calendar. We try to include all of the pinball related events from Tacoma, in the south to Bellingham, in the north and also Kitsap County, to the west (which includes Bremerton). While there are different catagory filters if you’re just interested in what’s happening during a short amount of time then clicking the main calendar link should be fine.
If you’re in Seattle without a ride to Tacoma (or back) here’s a link to our post on the public transportation options: Here
If you plan on playing in one or all of the tournaments at NWPAS and haven’t heard about the new formats yet you should definately take a look at them on the NWPAS site. There have been a number of surprised comments about the changes and pricing on Facebook. https://www.nwpinballshow.com/tournaments
Regular users of this site may have noticed that I’ve been changing the dates on some of the recent posts. This is done to bump the posts about past events down the page so the more relevant posts stay at the top.
If you see me (gordon) taking photos at the show be sure to say hi and let me take your pic for the collage in the upcoming issue of Skill Shot. (I’ll mostly be taking them in the lobby or outside). It’s been a while since we published an issue of the zine but there’s one planned for later this summer. Support Local Pinball!
