The new facility is in a large recreation center that holds a number of large events year round. It has a swimming pool, full workout area, indoor track, skating rinks, full gymnasium and food court area. Sherwood Park which on the outskirts of Edmonton is a booming hamlet with lots of food and entertainment options and the facility is location just off of the Yellowhead highway for easy access. There are tons of free parking at the event and a number of great hotel choices available.
YEGPIN is a great show for those whom are interested in playing unlimited pinball and arcade games on our free play floor, buying parts, buying machines or playing in competitive pinball and arcade tournaments. YEGPIN offers an opportunity once in a year to relive your younger days with some of the classic pinball arcade games from your childhood. A chance to play the latest and greatest in pinball and arcade and an opportunity to check out what the resurgence in pinball and arcade is all about.
Our new location has the capacity to now hold over 200 pinball machines, classic video games, and other game room goodies that will be set up on free play for everyone to enjoy the entire weekend. YEGPIN will strives to showcase the best pinball and arcade collections in the city and provides you with three fun-filled days of playing pinball machines and arcade games.
The event will also be hosting three IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association) backed pinball tournaments for which you will receive WPPR points (World Pinball Player Rankings). This will be a great, friendly competition that is open to novice and advanced players alike, in which we offer customized trophies and cash prizes to the winners. One of those tournaments is an opportunity for our non-profit show to give back to the community that supports us. On the Friday night we will be putting on the Knockout Cancer Pinball Tournament where all funds raised will be provide back to a charity of our choice. Last year we raised $2,500 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
