It's all about he kids and not egos. The toy run here in SE Texas is all types of boats (Center Consoles, 18' fishing, sport fishers, go fasts) loaded with toys. We have a poker run and then a Xmas boat parade. Attach are some photos....

We have made our reservation already, see you Sat Morning bright and early. There are 3 boats coming from Merritt Island, as far as I know. I'll try to get in touch with a guy I know from the Deep Impact, "Monster Energy Drink" fishing team and see if i can get him to join us. Keep up the great work Rus.
Everything is for sale @ a certain $$
I look forward to seeind all of you at the TFT.. it is a great event . and again thank for your support
Met Rus during raceweek at Key West as he was promoting this event. Very personable gracious person doing a great service for a super charity.
We'll be there Friday morning to meet up for the lunch run Rus, and look forward to Saturday's toy run.
Dean, hope you're bringing the 388 with the 600's so we can check it out !
HOLY COW !!
I have done this run many times and i can say first hand Rus has the kids at heart, we always have fun on this run with many great memories from doing it.
Thanks for promoting the Toys for Tots run in your city, I think y'all are in Jacksonville if I'm remembering correctly where the St. Johns river is.
Your dedication to the charity for less fortunate kids is AWESOME.
I certainly hope you didn't feel put off by the offshore power boating enthusiasts here or at finals in Key West.
We're all guilty, at one occasion or another, of showing the less desirable sides of our personalities. I'm sorry that your preacher had to be a witness to a bit of this. I'm sure that he finds it easier to promote a cause for your church to local citizens of your community than to a rather buzzed crowd of people from all across the nation.
Congrats on a job well done.
If you'll place a mailing address here I and I'm sure some other members of OSO who aren't so close will pitch in for the kids and allow y'all the ability to get some more gifts from those who can't attend.
God Bless you and the kids your working so hard for.
It is all a learning experience . Beeive me this job is easier than my last career I just retired after 26 years. after the TFT I will write and show picture on Boating toys for tots face book my daughter run that , she spell beter than me
