I almost lost my life through being trapped and drowning, I saw and felt the calm come over me, then thought of my wife and daughter who is now 15, and it gave me the will to hold out and collect myself. I love my daughter more than words could ever say, she is so special. My families heart goes out to Jennifer, and I pray that all the people who have more than they need will open their hearts and help this girl, she will have this accident in her head forever, as I have from mine, so everyone please help, this tradgedy is to much for her alone. HELP!!!!!!!!. I am sending a check for $200.00 today, and if there is anything else I can do to help, let me know. 7XCHAMP Richie
Thank you Richie,

I was watching the race from the Pier House when Tom's boat went over. That was the one of the most sad days in my life. We are so glad you survived it and for your valuable contribution to offshore racing and performance boating.
Tom was a true gentleman and very approchable. One in our group bumped into him at the hotel the day before and he spent a half hour talking to my friend Alan. He and yourself have inspired me over the years and we are encouraged by your support. It will mean a lot to the family.
Thank you again,
Bob

Great Don. Glad you can make it. Hey, we had good weather. We went to where the sun always shines - Marco. LOL It turned out to be a great day. We always have a plan " B " as we will for this one as well. Trust me.

fg, not sure I understand. This run starts at the Sanibel Bridge and runs south in the Gulf for 30 miles to Gordon Pass [ Naples ] then up Naples bay about 4 miles to Bayfront which is close to the downtown Naples area. We will be posting maps to help shortly.
Hope that helps,
Bob

John, not to worry. You have been on the list since our meeting at the Cabana on Friday. Also thank for offering to be pace boat for the 45 - 50 MPH boats. There will be 3 groups and 3 separate starts but more on that later.
I will update the auction list now and you are the lead bidder for Sarasota Poker Run. Good luck,
Bob

Thank you Alec. You are a generous man. I have admired your donations and fund raising using your offshore boats as well. The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, ON has benefitted greatly from your support. Now you are helping a young girl in Florida.
Thank you and see you soon I hope,
Bob
