Ha. It's a good thing Jay cause I find some of this a bit challenging. I do manage to muddle thru some stuff tho and your help and that from all of FMO / OSO is appreciated.
Bob


I have spent some time in the Ft Myers Offshore section today adding information to the Driver / Participant thread. You will find some of it more restrictive that our normal Fun Runs but there are very good reasons for it. We will all have fun and we will all have a safe day on the water and most of all we will be supporting a good cause.

UPDATE

We are now at 30 boats for the run in the first 8 days since we announced this event. We may be forced to cut it off at 45 boats due to limited dockage / rafting space at Bayfront. If you are thinking of coming please let me know.

Details of the Lake Erie condo near Put-in-Bay donated by OSO THE MENACE are now posted. See items 5 and 5 a] on the auction list found on post 1 of this thread. 15 great items to bid on. Note that bidding closes on the Benefit Fun Run boat seats on Thurs. Jan 25th at 9 PM EST. That is only 4 days away !! The remaining items close on Feb. 4th at 5 PM EST.

I heve exchanged e mails with Zack Taylor and he is hoping to make the run with us. His new 51' OL is pictured here. This pic was taken when Zack and his family joined us on the FMO Thanksgiving Fun Run to Everglades City. It was a very good day.

Also "The Menace" has bounced me out of the lead for Poker Runs America America's entry fee for Ft Myers Poker Run with a $ 600.00 bid. The nerve !! LOL Way to go Dennis !

Item # 16 just added to the auction list:

OSO cbeastwood, Craig Beastwood has approached Fiddlers Creek and they have graciously donated a round of golf for 4 people with carts. One of the most outstanding courses in the Naples area. For more details see the auction items on post 1 of this thread. Thank you to another great guy from FMO.

We now have 16 items to bid on with bidders on 10, soon to be 11 I'm told.

Also thought it worth mentioning my son Steve tracked me down today at the bobthebuilder office and laid down a check on my desk for our cause. Thank you Steve. It's even more special when unsolicited like that.

I hope Zack can make it to the run- I would love to see that boat again. And yeah boy, it WAS a very good day. Here are a few more shots of Zack and his crew from that day.

We need someone not over 175lbs (fuel) to go with him and take the shots. Please any help we need it.

Stu, fron PRA if you are reading this maybe you can help.

John, not to worry.
Dustin Simon from Donzi Marine has just called me and Donzi is stepping up to the plate once again. They are making their photographer available to us to cover the Benefit Run. That is great.
Thank you Donzi Marine.

Also note that Donzi has donated some great items for auction that can be found on post 1 of this thread. Items that were to be released at the Miami boat show.
Again , thank you Dustin and Donzi Marine !!
