    Over halfway to the goal in one day! Great community!

    It's not much but if we all just let our tickets ride (buy new ones instead of reusing 2020's next year and throws a bit of cash love I think TPF will be just fine.

    The gofundme stuff has gotten way out of control. I support TPF and will happily buy merch to help the business recover, but a go fund me set up by one business for another just seems off. ESP with all the individuals that are now out of work and we are just seeing the start of it.

    When business start asking for charity then I don’t agree.

    This is why I gave $20.

    It is reasonable and middle of the road.

    If they don't do TPF 2021 because it is not possible I will not be back here exclaiming the unfortunate life of giving and it not happening.

    Instead, I thought it through long and hard and chalked it up to the spirit of charitble giving.

    These folks very well could ha e arranged their lives so that the majority of their income came from TPF in order to give it their full attention. Accurate or not I assessed the amount of money I am capable of giving even knowing the current volatile market and said to myself: " ehhh.. it's for a good cause that brings or has brought me or others happiness. "

    Again. You with the black and white man. It's a hard time and some people want to feel good by sharing compassion along with this harsh reality.

    I once bought a shitload of pizza for a company that routinely did right by me as a customer. Certainly not needed right? However can you understand.. try to understand why I did and continue to do that?

    #358 15 days ago

    I seriously dont want TPF to fail or go bankrupt.

    Its the only show I go to, even though other shows are a bit closer.

    Something about BBQ, Pinball, Late night cigars and Ziegenbock beer...

    All in the great state of Texas !

    Im really hooked on this.

    Buying an Armadillo playing pinball Hoodie is a must lol.

    You do you

    I’ll do me.

    If After the dust all settles and this gofundme is set up by the actual TPF team in a month, then it means much more.

    The original attempt of the gofundme was set for 35k, then down sized to 25k, and then 10k. It was also set up right after Ed said to just give them time to figure stuff out.

    I am all for helping TPF if they actually need it. The timing and optics of this are poor at best.

    If anyone really wants to help, then buy merch directly from TPF. Then nobody else gets a cut.

    So my pops taught me many a lesson at an early age and 1 of them was to gauge the cost of a friend.

    If the creator of this GoFundMe decides to do the wrong thing with the money it will come out. And if that happens I will have learned a valuable lesson about the merit of this person for a whopping 20 dollars.

    Again. A middle of the road approach.

    We're up here near Seattle/Tacoma, hoping we can still pull off our own festival later this summer. Meanwhile, I ordered a T.P.F. shirt. We all need a little love right now.

    ...and maybe a couple more rolls of toilet paper!

    #362 15 days ago

    I am happy to see people helping out our TPF family. Hope to see it continue. I donated 30.00.

    Looks like the titan_pinball sale may have already ended? I was looking at getting an order of rings together and thought of grabbing a pin mat while I was at it but the code is no longer working

    Sale ended Sunday at Noon (presumably Central, as that’s where they are based)

    Got my goodie bag today, purchased in support of the festival. It has a logo'd zipper bag, similar in size to a bank deposit bag, a key ring with a token from a machine that gave out tokens (forget the name); a great wall calendar featuring notable backglasses and pinball dates, a festival logo Titan Pinball wrench, a little bottle of hand sanitizer, festival cards and stickers, a 2020 Festival lapel pin and the 2020 challenge coin.

    So, that puts me up one on the challenge coin and the Titan wrench, which I already had.
