RTTB Update
« on: March 15, 2015, 04:42:21 PM »
In response to the many emails, PMs and calls in relation to RTTB and it's future, I'm happy to announce that RTBB will be up and running as soon as some loose ends are finalized.

Greg was the sole reason pinball parts became affordable in Australia. For those customers holding out and waiting for the site to return from it's fishing trip, the wait is almost over.

The most pleasing aspect of the news is that Greg's vision and legacy will be continued by pinball people who are genuinely interested in the preservation of pinball, the promotion of the hobby and the people who play the games. The family understand the respect and integrity that Greg has in the industry, so the decision to continue was a straight forward one.

All existing distributorships will continue with RTBB. There is a change of ownership, but please be patient while this is worked through.

Stay tuned for more details next week. Sleeves are being rolled up as I type this !

This is a great result. Gregs mark on the hobby will remain.

Blair, make an offer to the family vis Nino and become a distributor or maybe see if they need someone like you.
You would be a excellent person to have a pinball parts business.
We all like and respect you.

The business has already been sold - in principle. Just waiting on some legal papers.

Announcement should be made in the next week or so. These things take time. The thread is more to let the members and public know that RTBB will be re-launched. Greg's legacy will be carried on.
