Fire at Play-Rite
By Dick Hack

Sunday morning Pacific time, Play-Rite had a fire at their warehouse in Turlock. I understand that 88-note rolls, O-rolls, and other inventory, some machinery, and office equipment, as well as part of the building was destroyed.

Perforators and much of the other roll-making equipment were at another location and are still set up. Although some backup supplies for our projects were damaged by the fire, Violano rolls will continue to be shipped, after a small delay. I do not anticipate any other long-term problems with other projects scheduled, although I do not know the situation with the standard stocked player rolls as yet.

I am continuing to take roll orders for Violano rolls, as this inventory was also stored elsewhere and is available now.
