I could use one of them as well. I am bringing eight games for the mix.
Looking forward to it.

I was the lucky winner.  I guess the odds were in my favor, bringing the most games.  I have not really looked at it much, as I just started unloading pinball machines last night  I got 10 of them in my garage with the help of Bob (Geist).  So, when I get that done, I can then assemble the dolly and give it a test run.  It looks very nice.  I already have a dolly, so I want to compare the new one with my old one and see the differences.  I want to thank Twisted Quarter for making this prize available for folks who bring games.

In my view (probably biased) the folks who bring the games make the shows.   Because I already have a dolly, I have decided to try out the new one and figure out if it works better for me than my old reliable dolly.  Once I have figured out which dolly I like best, I have decided to give the other dolly to Jeff Smith (jmsvero).  Jeff brings a bunch of games (usually eight or so) to every show, and he does not really have anyone local to help him load and unload, so I want him to have the dolly in the hopes that it will make his pin movements a little easier.   He also keeps an eye on all the EMs and my other games form e while I am flailing in the tournament.  In my mind, he is an unsung hero.

In my view, Jeff is a much more deserving guy than me, so it only seems fair to me to share my good fortune with a guy who does a lot to support the pinball community, particularly the EM community.

Thanks once again to Twisted Quarter, and to Bill and Mick for securing the donation.  I will post a review of the cart, as requested by Bill, once I have had a chance to try it out.

Awesome Ron!  I'm sure Jeff will put it to good use.  It's fitting that the cart go to you guys since you carried so many games such a long way to get to SPF.

This was a great idea to encourage collectors to bring games.
