We've tried to keep up with all the members and where they are but no place seems to be the comprehensive place.

So until something is better we have created a spreadsheet at www.talkoffshore.com.

We need some of you to fill us in on names, locations and status of the very members that we care so much about.

We have current and past SBI staff members who we haven't been able to contact or hear from yet.
I don't know how to let them know that we're very concerned and that I have a downstairs apt. here in Marathon that they are welcome to use.
We have heard from John Wischler (one of our truck drivers) but he still does not know where his 15 yr. old daughter is.
We are waiting to hear from Charlie Roberts and Dewayne Hutchison, our other drivers, and Mike Lee and they are all from the New Orleans/so.western Miss. area.
Just an f.y.i. to keep them on your list and in your prayers.

Two bedrooms in our house near Annapolis, Maryland available to OSO family mebers impacted by the storm. We have a big yard if you need to store your RV or powerboat.

There are thousands of people that evacuted before the storm hit, living in shelters and hotels across the south. Problem is getting word out to those people about the help that is available. Very frustrating.

I was just watchin some of the coverage on the weather channel. Unreal. I just can imagine.
Someone can have my home (4 bedrooms) in Northern Michigan. RG3 I'll need that room if someone takes me up on my offer. And I need loud music, I'm hard of hearing. My co. is putting together a semi full of supplies for our customers and there families in Southern Mississippi and I will be taking it down on Monday I hope the roads are open, It's the bridges that I worry about when you weigh 80,000 lbs

Here is the fund info I received. I will check tomorrow to see if they take electronic or debit card payments. I was told that Michael Dupy keeps track of who gives what amount. I'm not sure how it would work with electroinic payments. I will update this tomorrow.

Checks are to be made payable to :
OSO FAMILY RELIEF FUND

SEND TO:
Wachovia Bank
50 SW 84 Ave
Plantation, FL 33324
Att. Michael Dupy

When you send a payment Please email me at [email protected] with your name and amount of the check. If you don't want your name or amount posted on OSO please be sure to let me know so I can post as Anonymous.
Lets see we we can do for our friendS in need.

First 2 checks in our fund

Lubejobs42 (myself) $1000
Stan Riskin (My attorney) $500

I offered to a bunch of of them before .We knew it was coming on Sunday morn.

I knew Open72 ended up seeing I was in the path and he desided to go to TX. He has a new infant baby girl and didn't want to take any chances . I figure he will be coming back thru here on the way back .I still cant get in touch with him . We don't have much cell phone use here.

RacerX6 chose to ride it out . I kinda don't blame him he has a boat biz there . I heard they have had some looting in Pickyune.They were lucky.

I tried OSO member Mark at Precision Marine and cant get in touch with Him

Sean at Afternmarket Marine ended up in Al.


We have PLENTY of room for anybody here in Jackson. We have power now and the house is in good shape . Even if your are passing thru you are welcome.

Rob

Cell 601-259-RACE if you cant get thru . The text mesg has been working better.My home phone is still not working and my business still has no power . Hopefully we will have power soon.
