Cool Personal re-cap: Boyne Thunder 2014!!!

As I scammed 1 last "Summer Vacation" day from myself today!! I have been chill'n & reflecting on the long w/e of festivities of the event!! As always, get 2 C many boaters I only C up here 4 this event once a year but feels like it was just yesterday!! I had the pleasure as I do every year 2 take out a Camp Quality Camper & this year had a young lady also that is a long term survivor that hopefully enjoyed a casual boat ride down Lake Charlevoix!!! We had on the boat at the dock a really cool 5 yo Camper that we could not get out 4 the ride but he liked his dockside "ride"!!! Tears as I type this & U would understand if U had the pleasure of this little guys company!!! Anyway, As always, want 2 Thank all the participants as this event doesn't happen w/o U!!! All the marshall boats, pace boats & just so many people that volunteer their X, effort & I'm sure some financial interests in pulling this event off! I think the event came off real nice considering we have never dealt w this many boats & people!!! Mother Nature threw a bit of water at us but I don't think anybody melted!!! & boats get wet, right!!!!!! So, the book is closed & we get 2 look to 2015!! Thanx again everybody 4 making this the biggest, baddest BT yet!! C ya soon, Tracy

I started giving rides to the kids with my Fathers old car club. My cousins daughter was a camper, she is married now and has a child,she has been cancer free for years. The guy who helped me put stereo wars wife was a camper. She is cancer free living a normal life. Great to know that we know some of the kids who have grew up and are doing good.

Good for the participants. Sharing the thrill of our boats is a fantastic experience that they will never forget. The blessings you receive will never be forgotten.
