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 game s (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 for me 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.

I'm always glad to help Ron, and what a great gesture to give Jeff (not Jim) one of the dollies. Anytime I can help out please don't hesitate to call, wish I could do more.

I appreciate all the kind words from everyone. I am no different than anyone else here. I am just doing what anyone else would do for a fellow collector. I would also like to thank Ron for the gracious gift. It will definitely help me out tremendously.
