Pinball Owners Assoc. Convention 1995

I've been scanning more of the dusty old negatives from my goody bag this weekend.

I'm trawling through the bag more or less at random but it still seems to be 1995/1996 that's coming up to the top.

In 1995 I helped the UK Pinball Owners' Association arrange their annual convention and World Pinball Championship at a hotel venue in Lytham St Annes.

We had a fabulous weekend playing the silver ball with a huge number of machines on free play to delegates. I managed to do extremely badly in the competition but never mind!

I had taken two older pinballs from the electro-mechanical age along - Williams' Lucky Ace and their Spanish Eyes machine. Also my jukebox was employed all weekend, belting out early 1960s tunes at top volume!

Happy memories!

  1. Hi, I was at this event and I took some video.
    I just put it on youtube

    It's a bit dark but it's watchable. Is it your jukebox I filmed? Hope you like it.

  2. Nice reminder of the event - yes that's my jukebox, so must have been me opening it for you! Let me just make the link clickable for anyone wanting to see the video:
