Thank you to John for opening his new home to host this Project Pinball Charity event now known as the Crossroads Tournament. You truly have a “one of kind” arcade, a great collection of pins and an amazing house. Thank you my friend.

This was a great event for so many reasons. I was overjoyed at the sight of the all the people that participated, jumped in to help to make this event run smoothly and a huge success that it was. This charity event was a great showcase of people working together to get things done.

Thank you Jeff and Doug for your unwavering devotion to scorekeeping, keeping things moving right along.

Thank you to Claire for your volunteering and long time invested to running the side tournament for us. You are fantastic!

Thank you for Joe and Lauren for sitting with John to assist him when he most needed it.

Thank you to Doctor Bob for the use of his brand new Wizard of Oz and for donating all the wonderful food.

Thank you to Julia for her awesome enthusiasm in the kitchen and for doing such a wonderful job keeping everyone fed and their bellies happy.

Thank you to Kurt and Jeff for pitching to bring games that could be used in the tournaments.

It was fun just to hang out and play pinball with and at times against you guys! Thank you for being my friends.

Thank you Dan!!

Ill add a few names: 

Thank you Ron D for lending me the extra air conditioner that kept the Garage comfortable.  Also, thanks for bringing Turbo Fred and Fred the pindoctor.  Both were a big help during the day! 

Thanks to Dr Bob for not just the food and WoZ, but the Indiana Jones and all the good suggestions.

Thanks to Phyllis Shipley for the great painting that became the flyer and event logo.

Thanks to Tom M for coming by a couple of times and helping me shop games, install the air conditioner and move stuff in the garage.

Huge thanks to Lauren for helping me with the scoring.  Those scores came in really fast!  Next year will be a different setup for sure.

Surely I have forgotten a few people.  Thanks to everyone who came and thanks for all the kind words.  It was a great event and very rewarding.  In my mind it was a good first year, but there are a lot of areas that can be improved on. 

Wanted to buy:
