The 13th Annual D-L-P Gathering at CALIFORNIA EXTREME 2012
Santa Clara, California - July 28th & 29th, 2012

The 13th annual D-L-P Gathering was at California Extreme in the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara CA on July 28th & 29th 2012.  California Extreme (CAX) is an annual celebration of coin operated video games, pinball machines, and other novelties you once found in arcades and game rooms across the world. It's two days that celebrate this exceptional entertainment medium, featuring tournaments, speakers, parts vendors, and an opportunity to play games you may have not seen for years.  Last years California Extreme had over 500 arcade games and pinball machines!!!!

Many D-L-Pers were on hand to celebrate this event and were able to play some of the rare laserdisc arcade games that always turn up at this event as well as the 500+ other arcade games and pinball machines that were available for everyone to enjoy.  Special thanks goes out to BZ and Joe A for bringing some of their laserdisc arcade games for everyone to play.
