The 10th Annual D-L-P Gathering at CALIFORNIA EXTREME 2009
Santa Clara, California - July 11th & 12th, 2009

The 10th annual D-L-P Gathering was at California Extreme in Santa Clara California, on July 11th & 12th 2009.  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.

This year's D-L-P gathering was very special because it marked 10th official D-L-P Gathering.  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 other 400+ arcade games and pinball machines that were available for everyone to enjoy.  Special thanks goes out to Joe A. for bringing many of his laserdisc arcade games for everyone to play.
