Pinball Expo Photo Report

Pinball Expo 2013 wrapped up with Zach Sharpe winning the finals of the Flip-Off PAPA Circuit tournament, but there were a lot of other things going on there as well.  Here’s a few shots to give you an idea of one perspective on this long-running pinball show.  Some captions as well, but mostly this will be a photo-report.
