Title: Project Pinball Love Across America Trip!
Post by: John I on July 05, 2015, 08:01:49 PM
I just posted this on Pinside:

I saw Dan (Mole on Pinside) this morning on his way out of Florida. He is heading on a 25+ state trip that will dedicate 6 pinball machines in Children's Hospitals across the country. Along the way Dan will be at Pintastic, CAX and ReplayFX, so look for him soon. Dan works tirelessly for this charity and in fact it is his full time job. If you see him, be sure to challenge him to a game of pinball because he really needs it! The more people who seek him out along the way the better as far as he is concerned.

Here is a quick breakdown of the trip:
