Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Play pinball and arcade games this weekend at Midwest Gaming Classic

Just for fun!, Special events

(THIS is LAST year's, 2008's post. I was adding some pictures and it somehow reposted for 2009)

Like to play pinball and arcade games? How about vintage computer games? Well, the Midwest Gaming Classic it just the place for you.

The Midwest Gaming Classic is once again at the Olympia Resort in Oconomowoc this Saturday, March 29th, from 10am to 8pm, and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm. Cost: Teens & Adults: $10/day Children, 12 and under accompanied by adult, FREE!

Pay your admission and play all day for free. Private collectors and those in the biz bring their own machines for you to play; some games are for sale. There are also special events, tournaments, and speakers plus you can shop the vendors.

Plus, this year you have a chance to win a Nintendo Wii or family pack of Six Flags tickets.

My guys go every year and have a great time. One year my son won a vintage AJAX arcade game.

 Another time, Billy Mitchell (pictured above) played the Donkey Kong game my son brought.

 (Too bad we did not have a Sharpie handy for Billy to autograph that game!)

Have Fun!
