Pinball Expo 2004
Pinball Expo 2004 - 20th Anniversary
Jay and I headed back down to Chicago for Expo 2004. After arriving at the hotel we headed to Skokie for the pre-Expo party hosted by The Korn and She Korn. Had a great time, met lots of folks from rgp and the pinball community and got to play some great games - Dr. Who, High Speed, The Getaway, Breakshot, STTNG, Black Knight 2000 and Creature.
Thursday morning saw us head by school bus to the Stern Pinball factory tour. The game in production was Elvis, designed by Steve Ritchie for Stern. We got to play this game at the PinBrawl event at Expo, and I thought it was a good design. The theme alone should sell a lot of games for Stern. Gary Stern showed up at the tour wearing his Elvis tie. Below is Jay in front of the factory. Here are more pictures. I also attended Expo 2003 and Expo 2002.
