    All the best, Hilton!! I love that you do this for charity. Maybe one of these years I'll be able to make it.

    how about this year Bryan???? You have 8 months to plan. I will even buy the first spotted cow and shot of Geritol.

    Would love to have you along for the fun. If you can't make it but have something to donate to the charity raffle we are always looking for more great prizes. The raffle is a large part of what helps build the charity fund each year. Thanks in advance for any support you can offer.

    #5 8 months ago

    I am actually off that weekend! Put me down for one game.
    Thanks Chad

    #6 8 months ago

    You can put me down for at least one.

    #raven and I'll donate it to be raffled again.

    I was thinking $20 with 50 ticket max or $10 with 100 ticket max.

    #8 8 months ago

    I'll plan to bring 2.

    #9 8 months ago

    thanks to all that have already commited to helping by bringing a game, or 2, or 3, or even more!

    you guys rock!

    #10 8 months ago

    I'll bring a game!

    bump for eyes

    #12 8 months ago

    Another bump. This is a fun tournament for a great cause. The format makes for a pretty casual experience. The rules are very transparent, so it takes away from the value of knowing the rules of every game in fine detail. It really helps to level the field.

    A family friend of mine was the recipient of the 2016 MRP charity. It helped her and her family tremendously while she continues to fight cancer. There have been other charity events held in her honor, but all participants were typically friends or family. This was put on by strangers, and filled to the brim with participants with donations from volunteers and vendors. She was overwhelmed that a community like ours would go out of their way to help someone they barely knew.

    Thanks again to the community for helping to support Sara and her family in 2016. I look forward to doing what I can to help out another family or cause in 2017!

    #13 8 months ago

    thanks Dave!!!

    Safe to assume you will help with sponsor prize stuff again?

    #14 8 months ago

    added another game bringer spot to the list.

    #15 8 months ago

    Just noticed this thread! Funny, but I don't recall signing a "self renewing game bringer unless we receive a registered letter 90 days prior to renewal date so you're gonna bring a game like it or not contract!"

    Thank goodness I'm self-registered somehow... One less thing to worry about! Always glad to bring a couple of games to help out!!

    bump. Anyone else want to commit to bringing a game and not on the list?

    I will get my stuff together soon and send out emails, but wanted to give the opportunity here first.

    Bump for a reminder.

    This is a premier event that you dont want to miss! More and more people opt to travel in for it each year and it will sell out. The sure fire way to secure a spot for you and your team is to commit to bringing a game.

    24plus great playing and often rare titles. 100% for charity. Big IFPA points. GREAT times and a really special vibe to this whole event (I am of course a bit biased but that is the feedback form others).

    #20 6 months ago

    Bumpity bump.

    LTG : )

    #21 6 months ago

    15 games committed. Anyone else want to commit?

    #22 6 months ago

    I'm good for 1 game, looking forward to it!

    #23 6 months ago
    Quoted from arkuz:

    I'm good for 1 game, looking forward to it!

    awesome! Glad you are going to make it up.

    As a heads up, we do a pre-party for those that bring games on Friday night. Basically, load in is Friday starting at 11am. We try to have all the games set up and dialed in by 5pm. Then I buy food and beer as a thanks for those that bring games to support and we do a little warm up tourney for all the supporters. When it gets closer I will send emails out to all the game bringers, but wanted to give you a heads up now since this will be your first time.

    cheers!

    bumping this now that MGC is over.

    I plan to ramp stuff up and get registration open in early May. In order to do that, I need to solidify the final game bringer slots.

    We could use 3-6 more decks, so please post up if you can commit to bring a game. Keep in mind that there are lots of perks for those that bring games which include; special prize raffle, entry into Friday pre-party and competition, pre-party beers and za, the knowledge that you are integral in making the largest charity pinball event in the region a thing.

    #27 3 months ago

    so i can do a spooky / jjp line up if you like.

    Wizard of Oz
    The Hobbit
    Dialed in (most likely have it by then)

    America's Most Haunted
    Rob Zombie
    Dominos
    Alice Cooper (if out by then)

    I will most likely NOT be bringing any machines to sell this year unless someone is looking for something specific.

    let me know

    sounds great KP! We will touch base when it gets closer. Would love to have a great JJP and Spooky line up. We will be sure to split them between the 2 pingolf courses. Any chance of your brother's game being ready in prototype phase for us to flip?

    #43 3 months ago

    Any shirts for purchase that go towards this awesome charity event?

    #44 3 months ago
    Quoted from Pinballocks:

    Any shirts for purchase that go towards this awesome charity event?

    we typically look for a volunteer artist willing to donate some time towards the design cause.

    We always give them a bunch of shirts/pints printed up with the design as 'payment' Last year Scott Gullicks was kind enough to make an awesome shirt!

    We dont have an artist yet this year but would love if somebody is interested in helping. I have lots of old files to work off of and incorporate logo stuff from the past few years.

    Please reach out if anyone wants to help. Also, thanks for the reminder that I need to get shirts squared away!

    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,

    Tim Enders"
