Hey dnebo,

Boat Me didn't explain his post, so I didn't know if you knew the story. It affected the charity for the kids and the fact that the lawsuits shut down SOTW. That annual PR raised thousands foe the local charity plus all the boater's would take the kids out on rides before the event.

Personally, I agree that NO amount of money will comfort a loss. It just really sucks that the lawsuits halted the annual money raised and that our fellowship at SOTW was affected.

It just dosent sound that way to me I guess.
I hope someone will come up with another way to help these kids.

If it were me with that money in hand, I'd make a sizeable donation to make a wish for the last couple of years. Then get together with the event organizers and use that money to revamp the event, making changes where needed to try and prevent this from happening again. Keep it going in his memory. But thats just me.

How do you feel you have money coming?

Tells me something about the legal system.
yes its phucked up and for people to sue knowing kids will be left out in the cold makes me sic. I thought when he drive our boats in these events we sign a waver in case we kill ourselves theres no wrong doing. thats just bad karma on them.
