A note from Tim Enders concerning the selected person/charity for this years event
"Hello Friends, Supporters, and Pinball Enthusiasts,
I have known my first cousin Toby as far back as I can remember. He is my dad’s
sisters son. Toby is now the Principal and Athletic Director at North Crawford High
School in Western Wisconsin.
Teaching is not a job to Toby it is a way to guide lives. It surely is not a 9 to 5 job, as
evidenced by the many parents and students that I have spoken with over the years,
who just rave about how Toby has changed their and their chidren’s lives.
Now we have an opportunity to change Toby’s life in a small, but impactful way.
Toby has been diagnosed and treated for a rare form of blood cancer called
Plasmacytoma, in which he has received radiation treatments, as well as hip surgery
on March 7, 2017.
It is painfully obvious that cancer can affect any and all of us and it probably has.
Toby is 6’4 265lbs give or take a few Tripper’s burgers(His mom and my aunt’s bar).
He also played professional basketball in Europe. He is one of the funniest people I
have ever met. He has made everyone’s life around him much better. Toby is also an
incredible writer and poet. Toby has some of the best stories you will ever hear and
family is the most important thing in the world to Toby. That includes his wife Jessa,
his two children , daughter Evelyn and son Benedict. His parents Geoff, Nancy, and
his brother Travis. As well as all of his extended family, including myself and all of
our cousins and the tons of friends Toby has.
I want to thank Hilton Jones for organizing and running this great pinball
tournament year in and year out. It takes a ton of work that not everyone might see.
Not only is it the best pinball tournament in the Midwest it is for the best cause! I
also want to thank all of the game bringers in particular. It is a major commitment
for you to move and have your games ready for play. I also want to thank the
participants and anyone and everyone involved with Madrollin. YOU make this
whole thing possible.
Let’s do everything we can to knock out this terrible disease using your forearm or
whatever else you need to…
Thanks tons for your generous hearts,
