When is the may draw set to take place?

#353 6 years ago

Hey everyone! Just got back from an amazing trip to Chicago.

Let me start by saying that Stern has been very supportive of what we are doing and I really appreciate their support. All of our sponsors in fact, Color DMD, Double Danger, Farsight and in June Tilt Hammer! have really made these raffles fun for everyone. I love love drawing multiple names out of the drum, even if only one wins a pinball machine.

We're targeted to opening a pinball summer camp in July and the public school corporation here in Frederick, Maryland has been super in helping us secure a space to host this camp.

If you haven't seen the Pinbox 3000, its an amazing product that gives kids a creative outlet that's actually playable! Its super cool and the two guys making it deserve a serious pat on the back. We're going to be using the Pinbox at the camp.

I'm in the middle of catching up here and planning my week but I will be sure to post here and send everyone an email about the drawing date.

How many people here are close to Frederick? We were invited to bring pinball to an event here called Artomatic. We have pinball themed exhibit here in Frederick that the Artomatic people donated and I would love for you guys to come check it out. Its been very beneficial in meeting people in the community and I hope it will find us a space to open the community center.

Huge thank you everyone! I've been in the pinball community for about 8 years now and it's the most awesome group of people. I'm really happy that found pinball and its part of our mission to share this awesome community.

Have a great evening everyone, and I will post back here when the drawing is going to be held.

Also, soon we will be un-stickied from the forum and will be up on the ad bar. So look for that change and maybe bookmark this post so you can check in easily.

Thanks again : )

Evan-
We also set the drawing date one month later than expected just in case there is an error or the event doesn't sell out before the end of the month.

Warm regards,

Was the drawing even broadcast this time? Best I could find was the post below and even that doesn't tell you who won what.

John Fabian won the Pinball Machine

Yeah I got that from reading the posts on facebook, but usually they broadcast the drawing live or at least post a video after its complete. This time it was just a picture of a bunch of names. Just wondering is all since there isn't a whole lot of communication about the drawings anymore. They post here, on their website, on facebook but it's a crap shoot where you might find information about when a drawing is.

Joe said he was going to upload the video asap on his twitch feed. He was hoping to do it that night....got me but yeah I agree with you.

If you are in the drawing you will receive an email about the date and time. I don't tend to post that information anywhere as we're already posting several posts during the month. If you are not receiving the emails I would suggest to search in the "promotions" tab in gmail or possibly your spam folder.

Also you will always be able to look on my twitch.tv/pinballjoe channel for the archive of the drawing. This passed drawing we were experiencing poor internet connectivity and so I did a local recording and uploaded it to my youtube channel, you can see that video here:

I hope this answers any questions you might have, but if not please let me know how you might want me to communicate better about the drawings, winners and new announcements. My default has been email.

Thank you!

Thanks Joe. In the past I have always received an email about the drawing, this time I did not. I will check my folders and see where it ended up. Thanks for the response.

Will you draw even if it hasn't reached the goal? Only at 30% now

#399 5 years ago

No, we can't do a drawing if its not 100%. I happen to be doing another drawing on Sunday for a different charity event and thought that I could do both.

Let your friends know!
