    Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

    Terry said a few ended up on Stubhub last year.

    lol

    #52 1 year ago

    Ended up not being able to go last year. I gave my ticket back to Terry to sell again.

    In my opinion: He opens his doors to benefit a charity. It’s bad karma/juju/whatever to try to profit from it.

    Who says I wouldn't turn all the extra cash earned over to the charity? Huh? who?

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    I have no issue with that at all. In fact, I may have one extra ticket. I'll know more in a day or two whether my buddy can make it or not.

    If I were to sell it, the proceeds will definitely go to JDRF.

    #55 1 year ago

    Also looking for tickets (up to 4), but realize they will be difficult to find. Willing to donate again to JDRF over and above ticket price if anyone can come through.

    You've done enough for JDRF already, Tony. You can have my one extra if I end up not needing it.

    #57 1 year ago

    I might have an extra ticket. Not looking to sell but if I don’t use it you can have it pinzap.

    WTF! Just sent Pinzap a PM. Have I bought one upped?

    #61 1 year ago
    Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

    Nope, I PM'd him yesterday and he promised to donate the cost of the tickets to the charity. Thats the interest I was looking for and he's a stand up guy.

    Sorry for the confusion Bryan... I was looking for 4 (to bring my sons)... was thinking little chance of that happening, but I have 3 confirmed so far with yours and yelobird and a fourth is pending.

    You guys are awesome, and will up my JDRF donation as promised. I truly believe in the good things this charity is doing. Oh yeah, and the PBL party isn’t bad either!!

    Sorry, man. I should have added a smiley face. Stupid post on my part. The ticket from me is on the house. As I said, you've done enough already.

    Bryan, I didn’t take it the wrong way... just good old Bryan humor is the way I typically read your posts.

    But honestly, one of my goals over the last couple years on pinside is to log in and read a post from you directed at me saying “Don’t be a dick, Tony.” But no freebies... I gotta earn it!! In fact, I think Robin should consider this as one of those achievement thingys that earns people points for their trophy (or something like that).

    #65 1 year ago

    All you have to do is be a dick

    The achievement needs to be getting Bryan to call you an asshole.

    Bryan is an acronym for But Really You Are Nuts. (I work with two of them.)

    I have one extra ticket for Friday. I will be there and can give it to someone there. PM me if interested.
    Thanks

    #77 1 year ago

    My extra ticket is spoken for.
    Thanks

    #78 1 year ago

    Tomorrow is day one of our Chicago Expo Open House!

    Doors open at 10 am and close at 4 pm.

    No entry fee for Thursday. Entry ticket only needed for the Friday JDRF charity event.

    If you are looking for the kinder, gentler day of the two, then Thursday is the day to come. We will be serving a light lunch, plus snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. We will have around 40 games on free play, but Banger Jay's Olympic events will not be functional (Friday only).

    Hope to see you here!

    Terry and Margaret.

    #79 1 year ago

    It’s a trade off, b/c I won’t be functioning Friday

    #80 1 year ago

    It appears Spooky Pinball has a donation bucket at the open house. If you’re there on Friday, please consider giving what you would have spent on food and beer otherwise!

    My grandson Gordon and others like him thank you!!

    I can’t wait. It’s my favourite part of the expo trip

    #87 1 year ago

    Anyone who needs a last minuet ride... The ambulance will be parked out front at the hotel at around 10:50 and will leave at about 11:00. If you need a ride don't be afraid to ask. Also if you do need a ride and have time post in the thread to say you want a seat so I can check it before I leave so I know how much room ill have.

    If there wasn't enough at the Open House, I am pleased to report there will be a limited number of SLE (Super Limited Edition) Superdawg Team G/JDRF flyers available at the event. These are yellow with colored print and can't be found anywhere else, let me say the yellow is more vibrant in person. Please make sure to grab one and even better, use it! Safe travels and see everyone soon!

    And they now offer their own branded beer at this location from Lake Effect Brewing Company. Buy a 6-pack or two to help others!

    It’s been a long day at the Pinball Life party but my wife and I had a great time, as always. I can’t thank Terry and Margaret enough for what they do for JDRF. Thanks to them, $3000 has been donated. Also, thanks to Charlie and Kayte and their donation buckets, another $504 was raised. The cookie, pie and cool cups were gifts for my wife because she has to put up with me.
