History

Here are some brief details of the previous tournaments:

2017

The 8th Cracker was once again hosted by Terry Sullivan at Shepshed in Leicestershire, on the 17th December.  Will Dutton came first in the adult competition, and the First Responders received a donation of £270.  They wrote back to Terry and said that they would kindly dedicate one of their defibrillators to the memory of Terry’s wife Sue, who has sadly passed away.

2016

The UK Pinball Midlands League 7th annual Christmas Cracker Tournament took place on Sunday, 4th December 2016 and was hosted by Terry Sullivan at Shepshed in Leicestershire.

I know it was a huge success like the others, but I’ve lost the email with the places and charity donation details, sorry!  I think it was around the £500 mark again!  I’ll put the details here as soon as I can get a copy of them!

2015

2015 was another classic year, once again held at Shepshed.  I’m pleased to say that on the day we raised £350 for the charity,  Shepshed Community First Responders
