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

    #352 72 days ago

    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.

    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 72 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.

    #361 72 days ago

    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 72 days ago

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

    #363 72 days ago

    Bought a Hoodie, this would have been my 4th year going.

    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.

    quick question, i ordered a few TPF merch items, i only received one of them. does anyone know if the shirts are coming later? i checked the site and there really isnt any kind of shipment tracking that i could find. any help is appreciated. i didnt want to reach out to the TPF folks yet because i am sure they are still buried with all of the work with the show cancelling.

    thanks.

    I know for a fact that the hoodies were backordered and the place that made them was part of the Dallas-area shutdown. With that being said, I got my full order (that included a hoodie) today. I did get tracking information and saw that my order on their website had been updated to show it was shipped.

    #373 55 days ago

    thanks for the reply, i will check the site again. this time from a computer and not my phone.

    #374 55 days ago

    I got an email saying that some stuff was backordered because of the shutdown

    #375 55 days ago

    Got the same email here also.

    #376 53 days ago

    I ordered hoodies after the show was cancelled. Got an email that they were back ordered, but that the shirts that I was supposed to pick up at the show weren’t. I have not received either.

    I had the same thing happen. I asked if they could ship the 2 shirts that I had ordered (seperately) after the cancellation by themselves, and wait for the hoodie to ship on its own once it came in. She told me that she could do that, and then a few days later I get a package with everything (including the hoodie).

    You might want to reach out to Kim and ask about your order specifically. She is doing ALL these orders herself but responds to emails quickly in my experience.

    #378 53 days ago

    Yay - got my stuff! It came a couple of days ago.

    Glad to hear that you got your stuff. I did reach out to Kim last Friday, and haven’t heard a peep, no response to the email. My status for the hoodies still says awaiting processing. They have to be overwhelmed by all that is happening.

    I'm in the same boat. I haven't received anything yet. I'm so close I wish they would just let me pick it up from them. Leave it out front and I will just grab it..LOL

    I got an email today. My stuff is on its way.

    Have the dates for 2021 been set?

    Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

    Have the dates for 2021 been set?

    Considering the Olympics are currently balking on 2021 I doubt anyone else has made a hard stance on any dates yet but that's just my speculation.

    #389 42 days ago

    I ordered a hoodie, have not received it yet.
    last I heard they were back ordered,
    may be a cross boarder thing.
    dunno

    #390 41 days ago

    Received my order 2 days ago, the packing slip was hand signed by Kim, that was a nice gesture, it's the little things that make great customer service, Well done! Can't wait for next year.

    #391 41 days ago

    Got mine today - nice shirt, glad to help a teeny bit.

    #392 40 days ago

    Got my shirt and other goodies yesterday.

    Was kind of surprised how light the box with 2 hoodies felt...thought I was going to be disappointed. Nope, they keep you nice and toasty, for sure. Definitely does a much better job than the Old Navy hoodie I've been using for years that I've worn so much it's got a ripped and bare elbow. No doubt I'll get a bunch of odd looks because this thing is ridiculously purple, and I'm not really known for my flamboyant choices in clothing, but oh well. Worth the wait.

    Standard reservation of booking dates. Fingers crossed back to normal by next March.

    #397 31 days ago

    Best news I've seen since cancellation of TPF 2020. So happy Ed and company are financially able to be in this position for next year! And I love the exhibitor swag bags I bought from them to help offset this year's costs : )
