Special Guest Gary Stern

We were really pleased that Gary could spare some time to come to our show. By all accounts he had a great time and was never too busy to stop and chat as he walked around the show. The Walking Dead was a big hit and Gary was kind enough to bring along the very latest firmware for the machine.

Thanks for visiting us Gary and hope to see you again soon.
