An event that has been a while in the making, the opening of the Pinball Science room will mirror some of the exhibits that were built for the travelling exhibition "Ausgeflippt" now showing at the Phaeno Science Senter in Wolfsburg, Germany. Michael and Christian Schiess created duplicates of the Pin Chime, Galton Pinball Machine and the Gottlieb Reset Video Kiosk.

The PPM was recently able to meet with City Manager John Russo and Nannete Mocanu to present bank statements showing our deposits totalling $750K for the Carnegie Improvement fund. This is the first step in securing an agreement for the reuse of the building into the new home for the PPM. Our next milestone will be securing the City Council's affirmation of the lease agreement we develop. We are scheduled to meet with the council in mid-September. The capital campaign will begin in full on their approval.
