We pleased to announce that Pinball Heaven will once again be supporting NERG. Last year they kindly donated The Wizard Of Oz pinball machine which went down a storm!

Pinball Heaven

Who knows what latest batch of machines will be supplied this year :-)

Chatting to the NERG guy at the event makes me want to go, apparently they have a deal with a local hotel as well?

The fact it is ticketed and limited makes me happy, I hate crowds lol!

I didnt get his name, he was the only official NERG guy there - the other fella was his mate who had just driven him there.

I played their Daytona machine (I'm still rubbish lol) and asked what they would have the event driving wise, they'll have this apparently which I'd like to try:

It was me!  :103:

NERG can only allow 900 into the event because of insurance reasons.

I may be wrong but I think that makes it the best machine to person ratio in the country. Over 100 video arcade machines, 30 pinballs and around 60 consoles and computers.

Oh, double the amount of traders this year too.

Hotel details are on the website but rooms are limited at the agreed rate.

Cheers pal, I would have chatted a little longer but it was so damn busy.....

Friend of mine at work is interested in this, otherwise I think it'd be a solo trip/meet some RVG guys/gals.

Waiting for payday so I can budget a few things but its on the cards this, the idea it not being a sweaty push fest is definately attractive!
