Goings On Around the Clubhouse

Summer is in full swing at the Illinois clubhouse with weekly thunderstorms and fireflies covering the lawns. We have a new deck and railings at the clubhouse and we are getting ready for a paint job. The Arizona clubhouse is having the summer monsoon rains which means plenty of cloudy sunsets. There has been some pinball trading and purchasing with a new Star Wars Mandelorian pinball game arriving from Chicago to the Arizona clubhouse. We traded and sold a few of our games, including Ghostbusters and Whitewater. One of our trades was for a Star Trek the Next Generation pinball. It's a fun game with plenty of quips from the television series: “Sensors are picking up a distortion in the space-time continuum.”

We closed the Cottonwood bookstore last June and have now sold the building. Renovations are still underway and we are excited to see what store will take our space. We give a heartfelt thank you to Ranney Moss, who managed the store for over 18 years, and everyone who staffed it over that time. The bookstore in Illinois is open so take a drive and visit. Stop in and play the new pinball machine at the Kempton bookstore: Legends of Valhalla. It is a great game featuring all the Norse Gods!

My latest book, Andromeda: The Secret Files, is doing well. It covers the bizarre history of German flying saucer research and the mothership called Andromeda. Order a copy today! The new Season 15 of Ancient Aliens is now airing on the History Channel. Check your local listings.

Our next trip to the American Southwest is from September 11 to 22 is full. This will be a trip that begins in Phoenix and then proceeds to Casa Grande, Sedona, Montezuma’s Castle, Tuzigoot, the Meteor Crater, Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, the Hopi Mesas, the Grand Canyon and more. We expect it to be a great trip!

Sorry to say, but we are cancelling our November 4 to 17 trip to Guatemala. If we do this trip in the future it will be to the fabulous Mayan city of Copan in Honduras and the Olmec areas of the highlands of Guatemala—an area hardly known to archeologists or tourists. Stay tuned!

We are planning a trip to Athens and then to the Peloponnese and Delphi to look at the many megalithic sites in Greece and Turkey in early 2023. Give us a call or send an email if you are interested in this trip. Check out all the details at: https://wexclub.com/events

The WEX affiliated properties usually have a pinball machine or two and we have web pages that are meant to bring pinball enthusiasts, buyers and sellers together. In addition to the transactions above, we traded our Twilight Zone pinball game for a brand new Houdini game last August. It is a lot of fun with snippets of Houdini’s silent movies and other features. Have a look at www.pinballtrader.us for the top-20 pinball list and other pages. Buy a pinball for your game room!
