Is there a web site?
For hundred of kids in Palatka Welaka and Crescent City The answer to their holiday dreams are not realized by jolly man in a slea with tiny raindear and a red suit . . Their Holiday dreams are brought to reality by some guys in shorts and t-shirts who do not ride a slea , But drive nice boats with hourse power .They dont let the red nose rain dear lead the way but instead follow that red boat Bo who often leads the way. You guys and girls with you big hearts and nice boats make dreams come true for hundreds of kids . Many kids would go completely with out if it was not for you... I f you are just sort of thinking of coming to the Toys 4 Tots Tour, make the desition and come to the tft. Everyone who has come on the tft comes again year after year. Iwish I could charge hundreds of dollars to come to this boating event but I do not think it would satisfy as much as knowing that I am getting everyone together with one agenda .. To do for the kids. But that is not exlusive to having a great time with great friends good food at a nice place.. I will try to offer the most I can to make you feel welcome . Sometime I think that this event lack some appeal to the upper crust folks as I do NOT have that $650 -$1300 registration fee... For those persons I have a sugestion bring $13000 dollars worth of toys to the tour. tip big at the hotel. Buy everyone a dring athe bar.. I want everyone to feel welcome to come to the TFT everyone no matter if have a 42 nordic or a $99 dollar back yard rebuild boat . You are all welcome.
Is there a web site?
An incoherant rant lacking necessary details like the date, time, location, cost, and agenda of events - details most require to make a decision about attending. Then again, you did give fair warning about it being a rant so I'm not calling a foul, just saying...more details please
The Beak be gone
its all about the kids
ROCK ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ITS A SKATER NATION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love it when people get overly excited about something.
I got this great mental picture of him furiously typing with both index fingers and no spell check while reading his post.
Toys for Tots is always an awesome charity regardless of who's promoting it. We have a run next weekend here in SE Texas for the same cause. It looks like the promoters are going to have another good turnout this year for the charity.
I hope the same for his.
I really loved this portion of his post, his passion for the cause is incredible.
Your call out to the membership hit a homerun with me, it has appeal for everyone from the SE Texas Bubba's like myself to those enjoy what many of us dream about.
With a magnafying glass and strong reading glasse. I try to overcome my loss of site to make this TFT happen. Just last week I went with pastor Milton who drove me to key west as my site limits my driving. He was suprised to see people who clearly have alot acted insulted when they were Invited to a free boating event to benifit kids.. The pastor told me thakyou Rus for the lesson in humility ... your are right I am passionate about this event. .. and it has been experience for me every turn on this trip ... I am glad there is some understanding ,,, wow I got some attention
