PAPA 8 (2005)

The Pittsburgh Perl Mongers held its August meeting at the PAPA World Headquarters to coincide with the kick-off of the PAPA 8 World Pinball Championships. I am glad I didn't miss this meeting. I have never seen so many well-maintained pinball machines. Fortunately, I had my camera and was able to get a few shots.

If the place looks huge, that's because it is huge! The red carpet marks the tournament area, off limits to visitors like me.

The other machines in the massive facility were, however, open for play. Here my friend Chris plays Diner, showing off his mad pinball skillz.

Several back rooms are lined with more great pinball machines. The hallway on the right exits into another room, again filled with great pinball machines.

Some of the many vintage machines, most in working condition!
