Default Pre Toys For Tots Lunch run ...NOT for the faint hearted!

On Friday Dec 4th we are going to make that sensational run from the host hotel in Palatka to 3 Bananas in Crescent City. The lunch run will start at 1:00 midday from the Palatka Bridge and proceed South to Dunnís Creek through Dunnís and then across Crescent lake [the location of many world records ] across the lake to 3 Bananas for lunch.
If you ever saw the chase seen from the old James Bond movies ďLive and let DieĒ and wish you were in that action ,,,now is your chance . Dunnís Creek has turns twists cut backs and all the winding action you would ever want . Some have said that it was the best part of the TFT run last year.
The Fish and Game guy said that they would put me in Jail if we ran the Toy run again in Dunnís Creek but he said nothing about a lunch run . So this year we will make it our Friday lunch run. The Creek is tight enough to challenge the handling of a 18 foot tunnel but big enough to accommodate a 43foot Fountain . [I saw Bill Mazzoni of Taboo do it ] . This is going to be SENSATIONAL FUN,,, and if the Fish and game guy comes by and put Rus in Jail I know you will all bond him out. Some one from this posse knows the Sheriff maybe we should take Mr. Hardy [ the Sheriff] with us . . That Twisty winedy snakey creek and a great lunchÖ BE THERE
