After 8 years I’ve decided it is time for me to hang up my operator keys. Don’t despair, this doesn’t mean pinball is leaving Pizza West, Knub’s Pub. Nick Greenup of Solid State Pinball Supply with help from Keri Wing will be taking over these two locations. Outfield Beer Company in Edwardsville no longer has pinball machines on location.
Most of you know Nick and Keri and you know their commitment to pinball. For those of you who don’t, be assured there is a reason I asked them if they wanted to take over. I’m sure they will continue to provide you with high quality, clean games.
As of now, Elvira’s House of Horrors, Stranger Things Premium, and Mustang Pro are on at Knub’s Pub. Tron and Star Wars Premium are on at Pizza West. I’ll be tying up loose ends but for the most part things are now out of my hands. As Nick transitions to taking over you’ll see more games in operation.
In 8 years I’ve been able to put 74 different titles on location for you to play. This wouldn’t have been possible without help from Todd Svec and Jeff Collins. And of course none of this could have happened in the first place and wouldn’t be continuing without Dave Knubley, and Cory Knubley, owners of Pizza West and Knub’s Pub.
I didn’t really get a chance to have things take off at Outfield Brewery. Best of luck to Beau Martin and Greg Bush.
As for me, my business will go back to what it was originally. I’ll be focusing on repairs and restorations. My availability will be scarce for a little bit, I’ve got a lot to take care of right now. Hopefully you’ll see me playing in tournaments in the future instead of running them.
I know I’ll get questions about games that are for sale. I won’t answer questions or deal with that at the moment. That will happen later as I get caught up. Sorry, I can’t give you a timeline on when, but I can say that the following games will not be for sale: TAF, Flash Gordon, Iron Man, AFM, Jurassic Park, TOM, Tri Zone, Whirlwind, LOTR, TZ.
Thanks and take care,
