Hi All,

New member here near Glasgow with a Nintendo Space Firebird cocktail cab that I have had in the back of the garage for 30yrs!  I finally need to do something with it as its been sat too long and is currently not working.

Hoping to learn from you all on here and see if theres some people who can maybe guide me in what to do or who to go to!

Mark.

Whereabouts near Glasgow, that John Bud claims that too and I'd hate to be dragged by the baws to his place :D

Aye well, you wouldn't want to get dragged down here either then! Originally from Glasgow, in Stewarton now. Yer clacker bag would be like a bin liner by the time you got down here! Where are you?

Stewarton?!?!? Thats even further from Glasgow than John Bud!  You're in my neck of the woods so I'll say hello. I'm about 15 miles south from you. You're also in the same town as the amazing Forgotten Worlds shop/arcade run by Allan.  I'm assuming you've already been there but if you've never heard of it, go buy some Jap/American sweets immediately and play some retro games! Its an Aladdin's cave of retro stuff.

Hi Jason. I've been up to Allan's place a few times but it's never been open. I will fire round again and give it a try. It's only about 1/2 mile from me. I've heard about the sweets!

If you're ever up here from the deep south then don't hesitate to come say hello in person.

Hi virtvic, not too far away either then (20mins?). Good to know there's some local members.

I've been looking through the forum......there's a lot of clever people on here!

Welcome to the vac :) we play pinball too if you fancy some silver ball action. The first meet of the season is in cumbernauld however the date keeps changing as the virus keeps closing us down. I'll probably have a video meet at some point this year but still finishing things off. Stay safe bud and hopefully see you at a Scottish meet at some point.

Cheers JohnBud, that would be great. I saw some guys on pinballinfo talking about that.  Would be great to catch up at some point.  Ive got a couple of machines so you are always welcome to visit for a coffee and a meet-up.

The Space Firebird is coming along.....although I seem to be uncovering more problems than I am solving!!!!

Hi Mark, welcome from another relative newbie. Not quite as local to you as some, but moved to Dunblane a couple of years ago.

Never heard of Forgotten Worlds til now, but will definitely be heading there at some point.
