The 11th Annual D-L-P Gathering at California Extreme 2010
Santa Clara, California - July 17 & 18, 2010

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.

Many D-L-P-ers were on-hand to celebrate this event and were able to play some of the rare laserdisc arcade games that always turn up at CAX, as well as the other 475 arcade games and pinball machines that were available for everyone to enjoy. Special thanks goes out to Joe Abate and to BZ for bringing many laserdisc games.
