Re: Community discussion group for home built coin pushers

Recently opened a Facebook account so we could track the life of a baby hedgehog we had rescued and we dropped at a local wildlife rescue centre. SHUT it down after 1 minute because it raided my mobile contact list and the contact list of my contacts within 10 seconds without my consent ? Very frigh...

Re: Coventry Auction November 2019

It is a pity the November auction will not take place as we all look forward to meeting other slotties and I usually sell or buy a machine ( although the wife was not happy about the steeraball I bought last auction ).
Will we be able to sell at this next auction planned for next year?

Re: Coventry Spring Auction

Looking forward to the 24th March.
I will be entering a couple of machines and some books.
It's a shame that the thread has got lost down the list on this forum.
Perhaps Mr PM could promote it to the top so many more people see it and we have a good attendance.

Re: Elephant House Auctions

Very confused!
How does Steve get all these entries for his auctions, when he never answers his emails and his phone number on his website does not work.
I have been emailing him for 4 weeks, hoping to enter a Bally Fireball pinball machine in his auction. Has somebody got some way of contacting him?

Badpenny, I would rather buy an original if possible. Will see you on Sunday and see what we can arrange. There are several nice machines on offer so will be there.

Re: Elephant House Auction Dates Clash Again

I will be entering items in the Coventry auction in support of Jerry and Jeremy. Jerry has run one auction a year for many years (and produced a magazine - sadly no longer), and has helped keep us within our hobby connected. If you enter items in the Coventry auction with a realistic reserve what is...

Re: Coventry Auction - Sunday 27th November 2016

A big thank you to Jerry, Jeremy, Dot, Kevin the auctioneer and Kevin the doorman for all their hard work in running this excellent annual event. Nice machines still fetched good prices despite the less than normal attendance. I sold some books and coins for prices I expected and came away with a ve...
