2008 was the Supershow’s 4th year, our third at the Herrin Civic Center. We found
a way to actually INCREASE the number of quality restored machines, thanks for the
many die-hard collectors that selflessly share their machines with Supershow folks.
We had a 30% increase in attendance, met our budget, and most importantly, earned
roughly $2000 to give away to local charities!
Supershow continues to be a place for pinball hobbyists to have a reunion. Regional
attendance from Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky,Chicagoland, Tennessee, and Arkansas
continue to grow, along with a couple of long distance travelers. The Supershow is
a place to meet others with a common interest in the hobby, who tend to reconvene
at the show as a reunion of sorts.
As you look over the pictures and read the articles of pervious years, make plans
to join us in 2009 as the organizers attempt to make it an even bigger year than
ever before - celebrating 5 years of the Supershow!
