giving the kids ride was a highlight of my boating season as well as donating to the auction
Shame on the families fo ruining the event
It was a horrific tragedy but no reason you should be dragged into this but we all new it would happen
This could be the start of the end of poker runds as we know them

Thank for the great times and hope it can be staged again soon

Wondering if you could still do an auction, rides and maybe a lunch somewhere. No poker run but still use the momentum of the past to raise some money and help the kids.

Sure you might not get the paticipation as in the past but just a thought.

Mr Heiser who was never found is from a huge auto dealership(s) family in Milwaukee.

With the contracts we sign at poker runs, I don't understand any liabilities on behalf of an organizer.

I was kind of wondering this myself. Has this been talked about much?

HEARTLESS BASTARD LAWYERS

Lawyers have no shame when it comes to trying to place blame or pad their pocketbooks.
