Hey, BGG community!

My friend Wil and I will be setting a world record on Saturday/Sunday for most 2-player games played in a 24-hour span (one at a time, no repeats, no multiple editions of the same game). We are doing this to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Supporters have been making donations and/or pledges (e.g. 10 cents per game), and we will collect the donations after the conclusion of the event. Every penny will go to St. Jude. This will be taking place at Aloha Falls Miniature Golf in Libertyville, Illinois starting between 11am and noon on Saturday, June 21 and finishing up at the same time the next day.
We will be webcasting the entire 24 hours as well. If you'd like to contribute, or just want to follow our progress, please visit and follow the Facebook page for our event: https://www.facebook.com/mickandwil
Or watch our live webcast at http://www.ustream.tv/broadcasterpage/18322638

Please help me spread the word so we can get more contributions for a great cause! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a private message or post them here. Thanks!

Good luck to you! Sounds fun!

Out of curiosity, how are you going about making it a world record? Is someone from Guiness going to be watching?

We're actually having it authenticated by RecordSetter, which is sort of the digital era counterpart to Guinness. If you can provide video evidence of a quantifiable and breakable record, they will authenticate it! They were the entity who recognized a different record I set three years ago: most holes of miniature golf played in 24 hours (5,040): http://recordsetter.com/world-record/holes-miniature-golf-pl...
