    FS "HUO" Stellar Wars

    For sale is my “HUO” Stellar Wars for $1800. Many of you who have been to the second Canada PinCon would remember playing this game in the IFPA sanctioned tournament. This mostly removes the HUO concept from the game, but there’s a little more. This game has an interesting history to it….. My...

    Announcing Canada PinCon 2018

    There are a couple posts where you can see what's going down over on Maaca. I've been too busy lately (this year) to keep updating the information on all the sites.

    Contemplating Canada PinCon 2018

    I need to sign the papers but it will be the first weekend in June for a two day event (June 2-3). I would do a three day event if there were a lot more people coming from a long distance especially the Toronto crowd, but without the attendance the fees would go outside my budget. I have...

    Contemplating Canada PinCon 2018

    It's 99% solid the event will take place and it will be the first weekend of June when it does. Unfortunately with the forums, often many people read but don't provide their input.

    Contemplating Canada PinCon 2018

    Hey everybody, Canada PinCon Evolution 2017 was a blast!!! I've been asked lots of questions for the longest time now. I'm considering the concept of doing it again and continuing on that scale (if not bigger) for 2018. We had a lot of support from so many people through all aspects and pulled...

    What if Steve Young.......

    What if Steve Young was to close his doors, sell Pinball Resource or heaven forbid pass away? From what I understand regarding his company, his books are mostly stored in his head. How would an event like one of these effect the hobby/industry?

    Canada PinCon Accommodations

    I'm sure the quality Inn in Hawkesbury has few rooms left. It's a very nice hotel with an indoor pool. I believe it's ranging from $120 - $125 per night. Quality Inn and Suites Hawkesbury (613) 632-5941 1575 Tupper St, Hawkesbury, ON K6A 3T5
