TRON Pinball Raffle Drawing at the APE
« on: January 27, 2016, 10:13:41 PM »


We will have a Raffle drawing at the 2016 Florida APE of a Disney's TRON Legacy from the 2011 Original PRO run with the "Chicks" translite.

A virtually perfect example of this machine; very tastefully modded with LEDs, ramp lighting, and many other goodies!

Raffle tickets are only $50 and we have a limit of 200 entries. Drawing will be held on the last day of the show, presence is NOT required.

All participants receive a special autographed postcard from the game's designer John Borg as a thank you!

For all raffle details, game previews and description, see here:

Thank you,
Marcel

            Awesome game.  Someone is going to be happy when they win this beauty.  I was there at Curlys when Redfox the raffle and took home a brand new ACDC pro right there on the spot.   I witnessed the exact moment he found out,  disbelief, then pure bliss.  He was playing pinball during the raffle announcement.  I think Frank or Jeff told him and he ran out to see if it was true.  It was true and his excitement level was through the roof.     It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.  That was one HAPPY RedFox.

I remember that moment well.  I had won a machine the previous year, and was too dazed to have an awesome reaction like Eric.  Strangely enough, I was so happy for Eric when  he won that  in my mind, I believe I was happier for him than I had been for me when I won.  Could not have happened to a nicer guy.

Two nice guys. I remember Eric's reaction and it was great.

The year before when Ron won I had bought my ticket right after him so as Curly was reading the number mine matched up until the very last number, missed by one. You looked like you were just in dis-belief when you won Ron. I knew I should have cut in front of you.   ;D

Like I said, two nice guys who deserved it.

That was an awesome day. What a great way to get your first pin. Too bad there are no more Curly open houses.

I am sure they will post it somewhere, but Rick Medina (Sp??) from Arcade Odyssey was the winner.  Sorry, not sure on the spelling of his last name.
