    2016 March of Dimes Arcade/Pinball prize raffle

    2016 is in full swing and that means it is time for another annual Arcade/Pinball prize raffle!!!

    I am a volunteer and supporter of the March of Dimes mission to eliminate pre-term birth and the health complications associated with it. 3 of my Nieces were preemies and spend time in the NICU, so I know first hand how valuable the March of Dimes is. Please join with me to donate to the cause and support "a fighting chance for all babies"!



    Every donation get automatically entered into the annual Arcade/Pinball prize raffle! Vendors have showed their support of the March of Dimes by contributing some great items to the prize pool, everything from apparel, tools, parts, artwork, gift certificates, and more will be available. The prize raffle goes life at the end of my fundraising campaign on May 6th, 2016. The person who makes the largest donation get 1st choice of the available prizes in the raffle. Then progressing down the list of participants until everyone receives a prize or until all prizes are awarded (for the last several years I've had enough prizes to go around, but no guarantees).

    Its simple:

    Step 1 * Visit my dedicated fundraising homepage to donate and be entered into the raffle

    https://www.marchforbabies.org/deanryanayer

    Step 2 * Please use an email address you actually check when making you donation (this is how I contact you when it is your turn to select a prize in the raffle).

    Step 3 * Contact me via PM, email, or leave a comment on my March of Dimes page with your shipping address and t-shirt size.

    That's it, then just wait to be contacted when it is your turn to select a prize from the raffle. Thanks in advance to all the prize sponsors this year and to everyone who participates. This event gets bigger every year (which is more work for me) but all of the support for the March of Dimes is worth it!

    OneCircuit.com has donated two CoinUp Devices.

    The CoinUp device provides virtual freeplay support for almost ANY arcade game!
    The device monitors both the P1 and P2 start buttons. If the P1 button is pressed, it will coin up the game with enough credits for a single player game and pulse the P1 start signal to the game PCB. If P2 start is pressed, it will coin up enough credits for a 2-player game and pulse the P2 start signal to the game.

    Unlike the previous CoinUp versions, this version requires NO CUTTING of the wire harness.

    Busy week last week, sorry I missed the prize updates. Here are some new items added to the prize pool . . .


    Easy CoinUp has donated two sets of 5 Easy CoinUp devices. Install these bad boys on your arcade machine or pinball tables for a slick way to coin up! Easy CoinUp eliminates the confusion of a nondescript switch. It's a pushbutton switch that's also visually a quarter. It's obvious what it does! It adds a quarter to the game! And it's very simple to install, with no permanent damage to the game.




    Order yours today at http://www.easycoinup.com/
