Entry
Tables were set to Freeplay and we encouraged a rough donation of around 50p a game
into the collection buckets. As always all profits were donated to charity.

Thanks
Shows do not run themselves and grateful thanks go out to everyone who contributed,
attended and helped over the years. Especially those who bring the machines, run the
competitions, offer prizes, service the tables, build the web voice, loaned pub tap rooms,
helped with the setup and break down and everyone who turned up to play pinball and
have a pint!

We hope that pinball will return to Swavesey in 2018!
