A great story from Graham TerMarsch - three donated Bally Big Times were used to teach kids at his son's school about reverse engineering and they ended up restoring one of the games - congratulations everyone!

This week I also wanted to highlight a couple of interesting notes on the Pinside forum regarding bingos:

One person has trouble with their left and right buttons in a Magic Screen game, with a simple, but easy to overlook fix:

And second, another owner converts his beautiful Bally "Bikini" to have wooden rails - an interesting modification:

The Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown is this weekend, June 8-10 in Denver, CO.  Phil Bogema will be there this year and will be bringing two beautifully restored Bally bingos: Parade and Carnival Queen.  Phil does stunning work, and I look forward to hearing the show reports from players there.
