When: September 6 – 8, 2019
DO NOT CONTACT BASE CAMP DIRECTLY FOR RESERVATIONS.
If you are interested in attending please email Russell Linsky immediately and let him know that you’re interested and what type of accommodations you want (if any). There are some camping spots and possibly some RV spots still remaining. No cabins are left unfortunately. If you’re not the camping type, there are also other nearby options.
What is Dory Hill?
It’s camping with pinball machines and 75+ of your pinball friends! There’s a Friday night tournament and 18 hole PinGolf on Saturday with PinGolf Finals on Sunday. A unique experience and the most chill event all year.
Be a friend – bring a game!
The games are provided by you, the community – we can’t do this event without them! If you have a fully working game to bring (unique and rare games encouraged), please let us know.
Many games are setup on cabin porches but if you don’t have a cabin this year, don’t worry. There will be plenty of spots available onsite – just let us know what you’re bringing and we’ll find a sheltered spot for your machine.
There will be a $10 Friday night tournament and the main event ($40) is 18 holes of PinGolf on Saturday, followed by another 9 holes on Sunday. In 2017, we had 75 players, and it is sure to be even larger this year.
More tournament details to come. Stay tuned!
Where: Base Camp @ Golden Gate Canyon
Our weekend of pinball and camping is held at Base Camp at Golden Gate Canyon (campsite formerly known as Dory Hill), 661 CO-46, Black Hawk, CO, 80422 – not far outside the Denver-metro area.
This kind of camping is not what you’d call ‘roughing it.’ It’s car camping with power at every cabin and RV site to plug in the pinball machines, well-maintained bathroom and showers as well as a convenience store that sells just about everything you could have forgotten at home.
A note about cell service: T-Mobile gets great coverage but other carriers may be spotty. There is free WiFi near the convenience store.
